Academy graduates and East San Gabriel Valley Japanese Community Center staff members Michelle Okawa and Pearl Omiya carried out Camp Chibiko, a two-week long summer camp for 40 Japanese American youth. This year’s camp theme was the environment and protecting the San Gabriel Mountains. Camp participants visited Eaton Canyon Nature Center, BikeSGV, and Frank G. Bonelli Regional Park. They also created nature-based artworks and presented them to elders of their communities.
