Incursion Workshops

Want to experience Japan at school?

AoYama Japanese Camp runs school incursions so that students and teachers can experience our language immersion workshops without leaving their school. Organising a taster is simple- you choose the workshop and we come to you!

On the day, our native or fluent Japanese speaking leaders will arrive at your school to host the workshop/s. We will bring all necessary materials and arrive in time to set up in your school hall, dance/ drama studio, ajoined classroom or activity space.


One workshop lasts 45-60min and is priced at $25*pp / workshop. Booking multiple workshops on the same day is possible and discounts are available. Please contact us for more information.
