Ocean Camp is developed to provide an educational and recreational environment to instruct young people how to handle themselves safely in a variety of ocean situations. Students spend a week camping in Shimoda, Shizuoka, and create play in an environment free of games and TV.
The program aims to develop respect for the marine environment and build confidence when interacting with the ocean. Furthermore, it is the goal of camp to introduce survival skills that are required to camp out in nature for a week! Our SIS teachers, will help facilitate a variety of environmental tasks for students to nurture knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to become nature smart.
