  1. Will this camp be offered next summer (2018) at Tanque Verde School?

    We did not know about this camp until today, just returning from vacation .
    We would like more information for next summer.

    • Not sure about next summer, so via email I sent you the instructor’s email to check with her. I only found out about these camps after the first week, so I posted as soon as I could. Thanks for writing.

    • My name is Miki Pimienta. I am currently conducting Japanese Language and Culture summer camp at Tanque Verde Elementary School in Tanque Verde School District. I was born and raised in Japan and have been teaching Origami at the two elementary schools in the district for seven years. This is my first time to hold Japanese summer camp. I have done a presentation on Japan at my son’s elementary school many times. Each time the students were very interested in Japanese cultures and enjoyed many activities I prepared for them. Next week is our last week to offer this camp. Since all of my students have been enjoying learning the Japanese and lots of hands on activities, I would like to offer the camp next summer again. The best way to find out about the schedule is go to their web site tanqueverdeschools.org and click on community programs. The on line schedule for the summer will be available in May. If you would like to find out the details, please email me. Thank you for your interest. Miki
