  • Camp Program

    In order to help meet the challenges of globalization, PRIC aims to promote cultural appreciation and international friendship through close interaction day in and day out among the campers. It is a miniature version of the highly diversified Pacific Rim in a Japanese setting. The camp’s goal is to help the campers learn the importance of personal contribution in building a multinational society based on friendship.

    The camp is conducted mostly in English language with some Japanese. It takes place in three terms: Pre-Camp, Main Camp and Post-Camp. We prepare and organize each programs so that campers can participate proactively. By the way, planning and operating the camp programs is mainly supported by the past participants, who are now university students and working adults in various areas.

    Pre-Camp

    <Campers from abroad: CFAs>: 6 nights 7 days

    <Campers from Japan : CFJs>: 1 night 2 days

    CFAs adapt to a new circumstance and prepare for main camp programs. They find here traditional and contemporary Japan, both in culture and technology, as well as city life. Also, they will have a homestay program in local town and exchange with local students.

     

    CFJs get together at the closest station to the camp site and enter the camp site in advance of CFAs. Even if all the participants are Japanese in the pre-camp for CFJs, it is operated in English, and the CFJs prepare for communicating and having a presentation in English throughout an orientation.

    Camp:

    7 nights 8 days

    CFJs and CFAs, from twelve countries and one area, have a variety of outdoor activities (ex. camp fire, orienteering, outdoor cooking) in the surrounding mountains and lakes, cultural exchange program presenting countries and regions each other, Japanese cultural exchange in tea ceremony and other activities.
