Learn about Japanese Culture at Family Camp!
In 2017, Japanese Culture Sharing included three workshops highlighting different Japanese art forms. These workshops always take place in our Friendship House, built in honor of our friendship with the Tokyo YMCA. This house is a traditional Japanese building decorated by the Honma family, founders of the Tokyo-Frost Valley YMCA partnership. Many of the Japanese traditions that are a part of Frost Valley today are thanks to the Honma family’s contributions.

Shiatsu is a form of acupressure developed in Japan and commonly passed down from mothers to their children. By tuning in to the energy flow (referred to as ki or chi), both the shiatsu giver and receiver benefit together. Join us for a cozy, meditative dose of shiatsu. Bring a partner with you; it can be a friend, a spouse or your children! No experience needed. Wear comfortable clothes.
