We are an international program for high school students in South Korea and Japan.
10 days. 4 schools. 2 countries.
Together we learn English skills, leadership development, and cross-cultural understanding.
24 participants in the program come together, spending 5-days in Japan and 5-days in South Korea, learning through our experiential and project-based curriculum.
Throughout the program participants will attend daily English classes, interactive leadership workshops, and cultural excursions. Programming will be facilitated in a scaffolded English immersive environment to challenge students outside their comfort zone and utilize English as a global language to help develop lifelong friendships and community.

English conversation skills
We're an English immersive environment. We encourage students to take risks, embrace learning, and support one another as they practice their listening and speaking skills together.
What makes a good leader? What does it mean to be civically engaged? Much of our time at camp is spent asking questions and examining stereotypes. Students take what they've learned and apply it to a social issue in a final project.
We split our time between Japan and South Korea, so students get a chance to learn from their peers about a culture that may be more unfamiliar to them. Our excursions, group activities, and guided reflections are all meant to help students engage thoughtfully with each other, and within new environments.
