Academy Camp 2015 Summer "Wings for the Future"

Please find a Japanese version of this report here. This is a report on the camp held near Lake Inawashiro through Aug.13-15.

This summer, I participated in both terms 1 and 2 of Academy Camp. For the term 1, I was a sub leader, and this is a report about it.

The term 1 was a camp only for elementary-school-student members. It was a camp with a wide range of age groups, from the first to sixth graders. The theme of the term 1 camp was "Wings for the Future".

We did dodgebee, a talk about universe, Game de Education by students from Future University Hakodate, cheerleading, camp light (instead of camp fire), and cooked udon noodle. A diverse of programs I did purely enjoy myself :).

I saw the members throwing the dodgebee discs with all their might, being eager to know more about the universe, smiling at last while they were presenting cheer leading although the boys weren't quite
enthusiastic at first, and helping one another while they made udon noodle together. Through all these, I could see changes or growth of the members, or I don't really know how to put it, but I saw something really pleased me and vibrated me. I don't think in daily lives people could grow like this in such a short time like three days.

I'm not really confident in saying that I have left something for the members, or helped them learning. But I'm sure that they are bigger, stronger and more thoughtful of the surrounding people than I saw them on the first day. There are tons of things I want to write, and I know that I cannot communicate them well. I know I've mentioned little about my own reflection. But anyway! I'm really glad that we've finished the camp without any big accidents.

I hope that the members who participated in this camp are now able to think a step forward, even outside the camp.
