The International Adventure Camp is five full days of action packed fun! Based in the Northern Japan Alps village of Hakuba, kids will comfortably stay in our International Lodge at the base area of Happo­-one Ski field. From here, they will explore and enjoy a range of activities, from mountain biking to canyoning, and even an overnight downriver rafting trip!

Who Is This Camp For?

Due to the physical and adventurous nature of many of our activities, this camp is suitable for youth ages 13 through 16.

For primary school children, Evergreen Outdoor Center still recommends the professionally run camp programs offered by English Adventure. English Adventure offers a range of summer camps for children of all backgrounds. You can choose either a 100% English program or a bilingual program for children needing support in Japanese.

Not at all! Our camp is truly international, with many of our guides coming from within Japan as well as all over the world. Many are bilingual and our focus is primarily on youths enjoying the outdoors as opposed to the langauge.

Being an international camp, our campers come from both overseas and Japan.

We do discourage parents from seeing their children during the camp, even if they are in Hakuba at the same time.

While there is no need for anyone to bring an excess of money, there may be an opportunity or two for them to purchase souvenirs, ice creams, snacks etc… We therefore recommend for them to bring small amount of spending money with them.

More Info

With the exception of the overnight rafting trip, in which the kids will camp in tents and enjoy a BBQ dinner, all breakfasts and dinners will be provided in our comfortable International Lodge where the kids will be staying in dorm rooms. The lodge is equipped with showers, kitchen facilities, a library and cinema room. The children will receive 24 hour supervision with staff members and vehicles on site at all times.
With the exception of our farewell BBQ, all lunches will be provided by Roots Cafe, a vegan cafe that excels in providing healthy and delicious meals for all dietary requirements and/or allergies. Roots Cafe has extensive experience in catering for schools and large groups, and understands the importance of proper nutrition & diet in young people.

Campers are able to come to Hakuba via train or with your parents. If you are coming with your parents by car we meet on the first day of camp at 11:30AM at Hakuba Train Station. If you are returning home with your parents we meet at 2:00PM on the last day of camp at Hakuba Train Station.

 If you live in the Tokyo region, Evergreen’s camp counselor will accompany campers to and from Shinjuku station by train.

We prefer to have reserved seats booked beside each other to keep the group together as much as possible. To this end, if you will not be transporting your children directly and if they are coming from Tokyo, we ask you to request us to reserve and book tickets for your child. This can be requested on the registration form, and we will add the ticket cost to that of the camp for payment.

 We must purchase tickets at least two weeks prior to the date of travel to ensure availability, for last-minute entries we may have to ask parents to organise tickets directly.
