Korean Language Village to open new buildings at its northern Minnesota campus

July 20 @ 12:00 CDT - 4:00 CDT


The Korean Language Village, one of the Concordia Language Villages  in northern Minnesota will officially open its two new Korea-themed buildings with a grand opening ceremony and tour on July 20.

The event, to be held at the camp  (Sup Sogui Hosu), located on Turtle River Lake near Bemidji, will recognize the supporters of the language immersion camp over the 25 years since it was established. Beginning at noon on Saturday, July 20, participants will have a tour of the new buildings, Korean food booths, and a dedication ceremony, followed by a reception.

The first phase of the building project was funded with a $5 million gift from Kenny and Simone Park, of the South Korean company, the Simone Corporation. It includes an administrative complex, dining hall with a commercial kitchen, two camper cabins, a soccer field and waterfront development. Other residential buildings and space for traditional music and martial arts learning are included in the second phase of the new campus development.

The day’s events are open to the public, but reservations are requested. Please RSVP by July 8 with names of guests to Renée Duval at rduval@cord.edu.
