This summer has been extremely hot, seemingly everywhere, and Korea has been no exception. The kids at Samsungwon are looking forward to relieving the heat with an overnight visit to Caribbean Bay, a large water park, and also a three-day camping trip in one of Korea’s cool and majestic valleys. KKOOM will provide the transportation for the trip to the water park and is planning the activities for the camping trip, where the kids will be put in teams to complete activities and engage in friendly competitions. In addition to giving the kids something fun to do during the hot summer vacation, these trips give the kids a chance to develop positive, lasting memories, just like regular kids.

Samsungwon is the orphanage in Gumi, South Korea, where KKOOM and KKOOM’s founders have been volunteering since 2004.
