The Camp of Love, an event for disabled Korean-American children and adults hosted by Milal Mission, will be held from June 29 to July 1 at Bakersfield Marriot.
The upcoming event is drawing big expectations as it has been upgraded from being hosted at school dormitories in the past to Bakersfield Marriot.
“The participants and volunteers will be able to enjoy this camp in a way that is different from other camps out there,” said Alex Ryu, the event coordinator. “We’re preparing the camp so that the content of our presentation is something difficult to experience at other events.”
One of those distinct features is party and music concert, which attendees must wear full makeup and tuxedos. The concept of this year’s camp is “Holy Swag.” The participants will be able to enjoy dancing and music.
“We’re also preparing a large pool party for 500 people with games and team activities,” said Ryu. “Anyone regardless of their family background or age can apply for the event.”
The event coordinators are also searching for more volunteers.
Participating fee is $180 per person. Milal Mission is currently holding various fundraiser campaigns to fund as many aspiring applicants as possible.
