Every summer, InKAS has a one or two week-long summer camp for adoptees currently living outside of Korea to experience and learn about Korean culture with fellow adoptees and local volunteers. This program is coordinated to help adoptees better understand the Korean customs, cuisine, traditional dress and housing through hands-on participation. South Korean college students volunteer in the InKAS Summer Camp and participate in some of the classes alongside the adoptees. Their involvement in the InKAS Summer Camp offers a more comfortable atmosphere during the event.

InKAS can assist summer camp participants in visiting their adoption agencies as well as arranging birth family reunions. InKAS can provide interpretation/translation services upon request.
