DescriptionThis is the very first work camp organized by National Muroto Youth Outdoor Learning Center. This center is an educational facility for kids and youths, for any educational program including, but not limited to, outdoor programs with nature, seminar, training, camping, or team building. English education has been a problem in japan. And with the upcoming Olympic Games in 2020, Japanese government is attempting to improve the system for a better education. However, most Japanese are not able to speak English comfortably. One of the reasons is the lack of opportunity for communication with International people (especially in the countryside). This time, Muroto center and NICE are planning this camp to help provide children with the opportunity and environment to use English.
