During the weekend of April 30 – May 1, the six Junior Ambassadors accompanied by 2011 chaperone Daniel Hwang and 2012 chaperone Cheryl Parker, along with JASH staff Marsha Yokomichi and Kristi Mitchell took part in an overnight stay at Camp Erdman in Waialua.  This annual outing helps the JAs bond with one another through outdoor activities and team building exercises. While at the camp, the JAs took part in a Team Development Course, had fun at the pool, played volleyball, saw a wild pig, ate s’mores while sharing stories around a campfire, and practiced their hula performance. For several of the JAs, this was their first overnight experience at a camp away from their families. The experience helped the group connect together so that they are ready to take their journey to Japan in July. The APCC delegates will leave Honolulu on July 14 and return from Fukuoka on July 25.
