<式根島サマーキャンプ2018とは?/Our camp>

Summer camp in Shikine island 2018 is one of CoC`s education program events to be hold this summer.
We organise this program especially for kids between the ages of 8 and 10 and we call them `travelers`. Our travelers will get back home after strengthening 6 important skills (Challenge/Adapt/Sympathize/Liberal arts/Express/Solve) We achieve this by participating in different activities with local people, experiencing nature and traditional island culture and interacting with our international volunteer staff. We are looking forward to do it with you!!



<ボランティアで体験できること/ Experience as a volunteer>
①You’ll be supporting and joining all activities with the kids. It’ll be exciting to see the sparkle in our travelers’ eyes when experimenting totally new things!

②Interact, communicate and make friendships with native Japanese students. There will be plenty of time to share after the kids go to sleep, to chat, have a drink and learn about each other’s culture.

③Enjoy Shikine`s transparent sea, green forest and fresh air in really nice company.

I wanted to experience a cultural exchange that included activities kids, local experiences and beautiful nature. Kids were so cute. We talked in English and Japanese. This camp is the best memory of my stay in Japan!

I enjoyed watching kids` growth day by day. There is an indescribable connection we only experience in this island with kids and Japanese students. I also feel I got more confidence in myself.
