english summer camps in japan When is it? August 17th ~ 21st, 2015

What is it?
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! With professional international guides and camp leaders and over a decade of providing outdoor children’s camps, campers will have the chance to experience the very best of Japanese Alps in a fun and safe environment.

Who is this camp for?
Due to the more 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.

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.

Pricing and what`s included
The cost for this five day camp is ¥99,900 per child. This price includes all activities, 24 hour supervision, all food, drinks and accommodation. This price does not include transport to and from Hakuba.

Getting to and from Hakuba
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.

How can I register my child for this camp?
If you would like further information or would like to request a registration form containing further details and helpful information for your child, please contact us at tours@evergreen-outdoors.com

We are looking forward to another great summer camp in Hakuba!
