About Summer Camp

Summer Camp, originated in Western countries in early 20th century, is a supervised program for children and teenagers during the summer months. Generally, summer camp provides campers enjoyable leisure time, valuable experiences that they can not experience in their school life, and it also teaches them enjoyment of spending time in a group. The main purpose of our camp is to provide an opportunity for children to interact with English speaking university students. By participating our camp, children can learn English as well as learning different cultures by spending time with people from different backgrounds. We wish this opportunity will bring children a fresh impact and give them memorable experiences.

Hokkaido, where you can find clean air, blue sky, undulating hills and the majesty of the mountains...there is so much more and cannot all mention here. In the summer, Hokkaido is rather dry with low humidity, and the weather is usually pleasant. Hokkaido has a lot more to offer to visitors than its scenery, you can also try various activities to communicate with nature! There is no other place like Hokkaido, where you can do sightseeing, eating, playing and you will be satisfied to the fullest!
