USFK English Camp Expands Relationship with Youth

U.S. Forces Korea (USFK) has announced the latest iteration of its Good Neighbor English Camp. The initiative, part of USFK’s Good Neighbor Program, will immerse a group of 65 Korean high school sophomores in an English-speaking environment through military briefings, visits to USFK installations and with U.S. service members, and by attending U.S. high school classes.

As noted in USFK’s May 4 announcement, a “Sharp Point” issued by Gen. Walter L. Sharp, USFK’s commander, the program is designed to positively impact future Korean leaders by introducing them to USFK’s mission and role through organized, interactive and educational activities. During the camp the students live with American families.

The Good Neighbor program and other such outreach efforts throughout the Pacific Command area of responsibility serve to strengthen and expand relationships between the U.S. and its partners and allies.
