The first day consists of team building and collaborative activities, helping students acquaint themselves with their peers and team leader. A variety of speaking activities help students get used to using Japanese in everyday contexts. These activities also reinforce listening, writing and reading skills so that students receive a truly immersive experience.
After dinner, students remain in their teams to participate in a Japanese-style Game Show! This gives everyone a chance to work together and boost team morale.
The second day is filled with rotating cultural workshops that are facilitated by professionals in their field. These cultural workshops give students the chance to try Japanese arts first hand.
Planned workshops include: Taiko Drumming, Kendo Fencing, Onigiri Rice Ball Making, Autumn Kimono & Sado Experience and Shodo Calligraphy.
At the conclusion of the day, a Japanese film will be shown with Japanese movie snacks!
Set at the foot of the Blue Mountains, our Aki Camp makes the most of the 紅葉 kooyo, or ‘changing autumnal colours’, of the surrounding natural environment. The Windbourne Function & Retreat Centre Mulgoa provides the perfect ‘bubble’ for students to completely immerse themselves into their Japanese home-away-from-home during their time at AoYama Japanese Camp.
Japanese-style meals are provided by the venue and students are encouraged to チャレンジ (charenji, or ‘challenge’) themselves to try things they would not usually eat at home.
The third day is a consolidation of the skills learned throughout the camp. Students participate in an Scavenger Hunt activity that reflects on what they have learned. Students complete challenges in their teams to race against the clock and be the first to the ゴール (gooru, or goal).
A picnic lunch is the last meal served for the day, before the Scavenger Hunt awards ceremony and closing ceremony.
