Heritage Tours to Korea
Note: This tour is open to all Korean adoptees and adoptive families, whether or not the placing agency was Holt.
TOUR HIGHLIGHTS: Adoptees will be able to review their adoption file with a social worker and discuss any questions they may have about their roots. Adoptees may be able to visit their birth city or orphanage (if applicable), meet their foster family, or (for adult adoptees) initiate a birth family search. Tour events encompass many things significant to adoptees and adoptive families. We plan to visit Holt-Korea and Holt's Ilsan Center for the disabled, a children's home, and a maternity shelter.
Tour participants experience Korea together as we visit national and historic sites and learn about Korea's rich cultural heritage. Our planned itinerary will include visits to the Korean Folk Village, the beach, and the DMZ. There may also be opportunities to attend a traditional music and dance performance, spend time with a Korean host family, and, of course, to try all kinds of delicious Korean food.
DATES: The 2017 Holt Family Tour will depart for Korea on Monday, June 26 and return to the United States on Sunday, July 9 (total time: 2 weeks).
