  • 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.

    Feel free to fire any questions,

    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.
