As an alternative to our usual sleepaway Summer Camps, we hosted SummerDay Programs in Tokyo in early August. Campers made the most of this time tobe outside, embrace nature, play with their peers, and be as creative as possible.We had a variety of activities such as hiking, river play, nature crafts, many funfield games, and team activities. We had 8 program staff, most of which beingrepeat staff, and 4 Leaders In Training also joined to create a safe environmentand lots of learning opportunities for the campers.
“I had so much fun running around with my new friends. I am already looking forward to joining the next camps and programs!” – Camper
“It was really great to be able to bring children to the outdoor program during these restricted times. I felt the changes and development in children throughout the day. I will come back again!” – Care Worker
“I was happy to see a camper who has been with Mirai no Mori for 4 years. It was impressive to see him showing the leadership and being kind to his teammates, when he would have given up a few years ago. I could see him feeling comfortable and safe to challenge himself at Mirai no Mori.” – Program Staff
We were able to host this Summer program only with the full understanding of everyone involved. We are proud to say that all the participants had valuable learning experiences during these difficult times. With the safety of every participant being our top priority, we will continue to communicate with care homes and adapt our programs as necessary with their changing circumstances. And we will remain committed to our mission of serving children in care homes. Thank you very much for your support.
