Program Description:
Guy Healy Summer Camp

Program Overview:

Students at UWRF have a unique opportunity to support Japanese students who are learning English in a non credit-bearing summer program in Japan.

USA Summer Camp is a part of the Guy Healy, Japan program. It brings young Japanese students together with American Counselors for an English immersion program. Stressing daily use of English, the camp provides a close counselor/student ratio.

The relationship between counselors and campers is what makes USA Summer Camp a unique and successful program. The counselors are not “teachers” whose day is done when the lessons are over; they are “friends” who enjoy meals, recreation and free time with their campers, participate in recreation activities, have meals together and interact through a variety of social activities.

Camps generally run for three days and are sometimes back-to-back. American Counselors are split into teams and sent to different locations: Nagasaki, Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, Kita Kyushu and Kumamoto.
