Judo & Japanese Culture Summer Camp

Hanabi Japanese and Judo Summer Camp will be a fun, active introduction to the traditions of Japan: an adventure in physical and cultural education for children from 5 to 14.

Every themed session will have children learning judo (a requirement in Japanese schools), Japanese songs, Japanese stories as well as the main artistic, linguistic or culinary activity. Each week, participants will receive certificates of completion and custom videos featuring their activities.

At Hanabi learning is fun.  Whether we are rolling, running, story telling or speaking Japanese, we use both our bodies and minds to expand our abilities and experiences.  Hanabi offers a positive learning environment where respect for “Sensei” – and for everyone – comes as naturally as smiling.
