Description: This project is actively working for SDG 4 (Quality Education), organized together with a local group Upple since 2007. Every year, Upple held a summer kids camp with local college students for around 30 kids in age from 7 to 12 in Fukuoka. This kids camp is a great opportunity for children not only to enjoy nature, foster their independence and group cooperativeness but also experiencing cross-cultural learning with international volunteers. Volunteers need to prepare for spending 24 hours with children for this period except for a few days off.Outcome of this workcamp: Please see the long term goal of this project as Local SDGs at https://www.slideshare.net/nice-workcamp/18-121510706 (only Japanese for the moment, but you can at least enjoy the pictures). In 2019, 9 vols. from 6 countries were well integrated into the activities.
Type of Work: Volunteers will live together, supporting activities in nature and sharing your culture with children. Volunteers will activate the children s independence and creativity by letting them take care of themselves as far as possible and letting them plan for activity, so volunteers will need to respect their ideas
Study Theme: Volunteers will get knowledge of good ways of interaction with kids.
