For current Grades 5 - 8 students
June 19 - June 23 (overnight program)
Summer Adventure is a 5-day overnight camp at YMCA Camp Anan in Tokushima prefecture. Designed to get students active and engaged with nature, we have planned an array of outdoor activities ranging from kayaking to night hiking to snorkelling, and so much more.
Location and Facilities
YMCA Camp Anan is located in Tokushima prefecture on Kyushu Island. Accommodation is provided in wooden cabins with bunk beds. In response to the COVID-19 situation, the capacity of each cabin has been reduced to 1/2 of the original capacity. Each cabin is equipped with fans to provide air circulation, and showers and toilets are conveniently located close to the cabins.
The facility is equipped with high quality water sport and safety equipment, with all activities supervised by trained instructors. We put the utmost importance on making sure each participant is safe.
There will be three meals provided at the camp and drinkable water and tea are provided at the food court for the entire stay.
*All activities can be adjusted or changed depending on children's needs. All of the activities are subject to change depending on the weather. We need to let the staff know at least the day before to give them time to prepare the equipment. We can also split into groups based on preference and participate in separate activities.
