Ready to Find the Best Sitter for Your Family?
It's Summer Camp Time in Tokyo!
After months of online learning and being cooped up indoors, your children will be glad to hear that there are many summer camps in and around Tokyo open for business!
Many have modified their session dates, activities and admissions numbers in light of Covid, but there are still several summer camp options to choose from. Whether your kid needs an all-day, weeks-long option, or would benefit from a few days of intensive activity, see below for some ideas.
For kids with active imaginations and storytelling skills, this camp provides a great platform to nurture their hobby. Held for two, one-week sessions in July and August, this camp in Minami Azabu runs from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. This year's theme is centered on creative food writing!
For children ages 7-14, this camp has it all: swimming, hiking, sports, arts and crafts. Set along the coast in Chikura, Chiba prefecture, this is the go-to camp for the young adventurer in your life.
This camp is organized around an annual theme (2020's is Compassionate Systems Framework and SDGs) and is a unique way for campers ages 12-16 to learn and grow in small group settings, while still having fun in the countryside. This year's program will run during the day only (no sleep-away), so this could be a great opportunity for the whole family to take a trip!
Modeled after the stereotypical American summer camp, English Adventure doubles as an immersive English language experience. It's a great low-stakes environment for learning, especially for those children who've returned to Japan and lost their English skills in the process. This year's sessions will start later in the summer due to Covid precautions, but there are still plenty of sessions available beginning in August.
From 14 months to 14 years old, K Space has an array of options for your kids in the summer. There are fun early learner lessons for your youngest and forensic science workshops for the teens and tweens in your household. Camps and classes start soon so be sure to check this out!
For the young football fans in your life, these five-day camp sessions are sure to not only make them happy, but tire them out as well! It's the perfect option for those kids who have gone beyond stir-crazy in the last few months (and for the parents who've had to wrangle them)! More sessions are expected to be added in August, as well.
Children as young as seven can become tech whizzes at Coding Lamp. The camps run weekly over the course of the summer in Shirokanedai. Classes will run through September, so there are lots of chances to get the kids coding this summer!
Held weekly from July through early September, this camp explores different artistic themes - from Claude Monet to Eric Carl to Big Band music. Perfect for the budding artiste in your house, Tokyo Creators is in Uguisudani.
Summer camps are an excellent way to get your children out of the house (especially these days) and engaged. CareFinder's sitters are also an excellent resource for after- or before-camp care, as well as dropping kids off and picking them up. Get in touch today if we can help!
