Note: Dates and itinerary details to be firmed up


KCCA chairperson elect (past vice-president), Rev. David Kim, who has organized motherland tours in the past with the past president, the late John Lim, will coordinate the arrangement of the trip in Korea: accommodations, food, transportation and tours. KCCA executives, Paul Muther and Vincent Lim, working with a few parents, will make up the core team overseeing the registration, applications and preparations. The trip will be accompanied by Rev. David Kim and one other KCCA executive, as translators and tour facilitators.

Trip Cost:

KCCA families will cover the transportation costs: return air to Korea, return air to Jeju island (from Busan/Seoul) and coach bus in Korea.

Approx. $2,300 per person = Approx. $1800 +$200 + $300

KCCA will work with Korean government organizations/agencies and non-profit organizations in securing sponsorship of accommodations, food and tour costs. Other trip expenses, including personal expenses and shopping, can add up to $500 per adult.


First come, first serve – 30 people including children (approx. 8 families):

Priority to be given to:

  • Family’s first time back to Korea since adoption

  • Families with older aged adopted children (e.g 12-13 vs 5-6)

  • Immediate family members welcome (e.g. siblings) over extended families (e.g. grandparents)

  • Active KCCA participant families

  • Minimum age: 5 years old


Deposit: $500 per person with Registration; cheque payable to KCCA

The balance of approximately $1800 per person (Return air fare to Korea) is due at the time of the group air ticket purchase at the end of January.
