Adobo Nation spent the summer at “Sama-Sama (All Together) Cooperative Camp”, an ordinary environment that provided extraordinary adventures and memories for its participants. Run by Filipino-American parents, community organizers, artists, professionals and educators in the Bay Area community, they all had one vision for the camp: to teach the next generation about their rich Filipino history and heritage. By the end of summer, the young ones emerged from camp knowing how to prepare fun and easy Filipino dishes; learning how to speak basic greetings in the language of their Motherland; and most importantly, opening their hearts and embracing a culture that forms a big part of who they are. Those remarkable days at Sama Sama Coop Camp left an indelible mark on these young people – like discovering a treasure they will forever carry as they journey into adulthood.
