Summer Camp 2017!


It’s our 4th anniversary for Churakids Summer School! This year we will be camping for three days and two nights! (If your child doesn’t want to stay the night, you can pick them up in the evening and bring them back in the morning.) We will be hosting a wide variety of activities that can be enjoyed with Japanese kids of the same age. Children who are experienced or first time Japanese learners are all welcome to come and have a blast while also improving their language skills. Come join us for a summer of fun! 🙂


What’s Churakids Summer Camp?

Indoors, there will be a variety of activities to participate in such as arts and crafts, laboratory experiments, and cooking! Outdoors, we will play a traditional Japanese game, called “Suikawari” that involves splitting a watermelon with a stick while being blindfolded. There will also be sports, games, and more! Since we are camping this year, we will also take on the challenge of outdoor cooking! 🙂

Many children join the camp by themselves. Children of the same age group will be placed together, so it will be easy to make new friends right away!
