Guy Healy

Summer Camp Counselor in Japan

Students selected to participate in this program will work as counselors at several different summer camps throughout Japan, teaching the English language to elementary, junior high school, and lower high school students.  Camps are located in many locations across Japan. These locations are assigned to interns by the organization. Interns must agree to work where the organization assigns them in order to take part in this internship. Each assignment lasts about 27 days between June 25 and August 30.  Interns may have the opportunity to travel throughout Japan during vacations between camp sessions or before/after the internship.
