Join Us for a Three-Day Summer Camp to Cultivate the Power to Live!

Spend 2 nights and 3 days in the heart of nature, catching fish and insects, playing in clear streams, gathering around the fire, and gazing up at the stars.

Immerse yourself in the experience of life through your five senses and your heart.

Our motto is: “Take care of yourself, and work together when you can’t.”

Let’s create unforgettable moments together!

■ Our Mission:

The summer camp is operated by the non-profit organization “Machinoko-dan,” whose mission is to enrich children’s formative experiences. We respect each child’s individuality and autonomy. This camp is ideal for those who want their children to take on challenges and foster their independence.

■ Staff:

We have both male and female staff available. If a child needs assistance from a staff member of the same gender, we can provide support.

■ Activity Recording:

Our staff will record and photograph camp activities. These materials may be used on our website, social media, and for future events. If you do not want your child’s face to appear in these records, please notify us in advance.

■ Location:

The camp is held deep in the mountains, where there is no internet access. Please note that mobile phone communication may be difficult. Discuss this with your child before applying.

■ Participation:

Participation in all activities is optional. Children can choose not to participate in certain activities without being forced. However, they will be responsible for the consequences of not participating. For example, if a child chooses not to make their own cutlery on the first day, they won’t have utensils to use during meals. They will need to decide how to handle this situation, whether by using their own brought items, borrowing from other participants, improvising, or asking the staff for assistance to make them later.

Note: The participation fee will not be reduced or discounted if a child chooses not to participate in some activities.

Note: If the number of applicants exceeds the capacity, participants will be selected by lottery. Thank you for your understanding.
