Ski Camp: Immersion

100% English, 100% of the time!





We are hitting the slopes for four days of ski in the beautiful winter landscape of Tsunan, Niigata. And that's just the beginning! Not a typical ski tour, English Adventure Ski Camp is a complete experience with all of the fun activities and camp traditions that we’re famous for.

Our kitchen serves up an international menu of delicious, nutritious food to give campers the energy they need. And of course, Immersion campers and staff speak 100% English, 100% of the time, with no Japanese allowed. It's like a winter vacation overseas—without the plane ticket!



Here's what is going to make this year's ski camp the best yet:

1. 100% English all the time
Even during ski lessons, Immersion Campers will not speak or be spoken to in Japanese. All of our instructors are English speakers, so even technical skiing points will be conveyed in English.

2. Four days of skiing
For four whole days your child will have a chance to try, learn and grow their skiing ability. For more experienced skiers, your child will be able to hone their skills and test their limits!

3. Ski in / Ski out location
English Adventure’s private lodge is located right next to our gorgeous ski hill. Our site is ski in / ski out so your child can enjoy winter fun from the time they arrive to the time they get back on the bus!

4. Large and private ski hill
Our lodge and ski slope is privately run by English Adventure. That means that we control who is using our lifts and runs, and campers don’t have to worry about crowded slopes or long lift lines, so campers will learn to ski in a controlled, safe environment. Our large private ski hill will allow for your child to enjoy skiing regardless of ability level!

5. Skill-dependent lessons
We separate lessons depending on your child’s skiing ability. For example, beginner lessons will start with how to put on ski boots and use equipment. More experienced skiers will be able learn various skills to better their skiing ability. We separate skill into four ski levels:

[New to skiing]For Campers who have never skied before! We will teach all the basics, from putting on boots and using ski lifts to safely making their way down the hill while being guided by their instructor.

[Beginner]This level is for children who have been skiing before, but are not comfortable skiing alone. They should be capable of riding a ski lift by themselves, and know roughly how to turn and stop on skis.

[Intermediate]This level is for children who have been skiing enough to be able to confidently make their way down the hill on their own. They can stop with their skis parallel to each other, and have full control of their movement up to a certain speed.

[Advanced]This level is for children who have skied many times. They have full confidence skiing on advanced ski courses.
