  • Description


    Workawayers will help at our small camp playing with and engaging with over 50 kids. Most importantly you need to love kids and are genki. If you are a quiet type who has little experience with kids then this might not be for you. We prefer experience. Daily it's from 9-2 pm.

    There is a newly renovated charming guest house where you will stay in a shared air conditioned room. The house has a living room and kitchen and bathroom with free wifi and washing machine. Camp is just a 5 minute walk away.

    Its a short bike ride to downtown. Bike provided. Oh... and a 10,000 yen a week (5 days X 2000 yen per worked day) meal stipend as we dont live with you but need to provide you with food. There is a kitchen with a fridge and stove Many foreigners prefer this than having to eat what a Japanese family eats all the time.

    As well, we are also looking for just the right person for our school. Ideally the person should be an experienced kindergarten teacher. Working holiday visa would be ideal but for the right person we can talk about sponsorship.

    Our summer camp is located at our house in Okayama City. It's property is big enough for a simple camp. If you look up Edison International School summer camp you can see it on YouTube. Basically it's just a day camp for kids. 5 hrs a day. Mostly kids between 4-6 yrs old but maybe a dozen primary school kids. We prepare activities like a zipline, bounce house, pools, crafts BBq etc. All in English.

    What else ...

    Okayama is considered a small & safe city. We also live next to the mountains and provide bikes for extra mobility.

    Okayama is a pretty prefecture as well with an attractive river area with a castle that tourists love. Not hard to get out into the country or take a bus to the beach an hour away. Also, very close to Kibi trail which is a very good bike trail across the countryside. I think its about 30km in total.
