Five-Day Camp

After many requests to extend the traditional four-day camp, we are running the five-day Spring Ski Camp!

Campers will have more time to bond with other campers and challenge their skiing skills for further advancement. Come join us for an extra day of fun in skiing of Tsunan. Seats are limited!

Here's what makes English Adventure Ski Camps awesome:

1. Four/Five days of Skiing!
Each day, 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!

2. Ski in / Ski out facilities
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 and until the time they get back on the bus!

3. Large and private ski hill
Our lodge and ski slope are privately run by English Adventure. That means that we control who is using our lift 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!

4. Bilingual Ski Instructors and Staff
All of our instructors will be able to speak both English and Japanese, so kids will hear plenty of English during lessons. Of course, for certain things we will make sure to use enough Japanese so that children are safe, and many of the more technical parts of skiing will be taught in Japanese. Ski lessons and English: campers will get the best of both worlds at English Adventure Ski Camps!

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 three ski levels and within those levels, we will move campers based on their progression:

** Ski level definitions have been updated. Please read below carefully even if your child has joined our ski camp before.

[Beginner 0-5 times]For campers who have never skied before to campers who are just learning to ski! 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.

[Intermediate 5-10 times]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 10+ times]This level is for children who have skied many times. They have full confidence skiing on advanced ski courses.
