International Camping Fellowship Outreach to Japan
Campers Helping Campers

After the March 11, 2012, earthquake and Tsunami in the Tohouku Region of Japan, the International Camping Fellowship spearheaded an effort to raise funds to support grief recovery camps for children in the affected area. A total of $38,092 US was presented to Hirohide Nagayoshi and Tatsuya Kanayama at the 9th International Camping Congress.

On March 11, 2012, (the first anniversary of the tsunami), Malcolm Turner, director of Killdevil Camp in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, announced an additional $2000 gift to NCAJ. This is the culmination of a year of fund-raising activities by the staff and campers of Killdevil Camp.
