Last day

Celebrating its 8th year this year, JINIS Camp offers a program for children aged 5 to 10, utilising the facilities of a European-style full-boarding primary school. Our exclusive curriculum is aligned with Jinseki International School; the program focuses on exploring the natural environment, hands-on scientific experiments, a range of sports, and enjoying Japanese cultural experiences such as tea ceremonies and Zen meditation.

One of the captivating aspects of JINIS Camp is the interaction with "leaders," students currently studying in boarding schools worldwide. Serving as accessible “older siblings”, they provide children with insights into life abroad, mentorship and considerations for future education.
