ACE Club Snow Camp 2017
to Dec 28

ACE Club Snow Camp 2017

ACE Club Snow Camp 2017

Hakuba, Japan

The time finally arrived, it was December 26th…YES DECEMBER 26th.  For most westerners it is boxing day but for ACE Club it was the first day of our Snow Camp in Hakuba.  We met the kids in Shinjuku and took the bus to Otari, which is just outside of Hakuba.  As we were getting closer their was no snow, but as we got closer and closer it started to build up.  Once we got to Otari it was a winter wonderland with over 1 meter of snow and another meter of snow coming over the next couple of days.  

Once we arrived and settled into the lodge the kids were in their snowsuits immediately ready to go out for their first snow experience.  We started with some sledding and snow man making.  The kids were in paradise.  It was snowing a lot so their was so much fresh snow for the kids to play in.  After our first snow session we went back in to the lodge to dry off.  Once we got a warm meal in our stomach, it was time to get the snow suits on and back outside in the snow.  We teamed up with Otari Nature School for this trip and had a wonderful surprise waiting for them.  A wonderful outdoor snow cafe with a campfire and pots of chocolate sauce cooking on the stovetop.  It was a first for us the staff and the kids.  The kids got to have a chocolate fondue campfire in the snow and ate marshmallows, strawberries and bananas.  It was unbelievable.   Once it finished we packed up and were ready for an Onsen and bed time.  

The kids were up first thing in the morning and looked out the window to another fresh 50 cm of snow…WOW! The kids ate and got dressed quickly.  We met up with Obi from Otari Nature School again and he took us to the snowfield to build our igloo.  It was all powder so we weren’t able to build a traditional igloo so we had to make a kamakura.  It was still amazing and lots of fun.  The kids had to work together to build up the base and let it settle till later in the day.  After lunch it was back outside for more snow adventure. We had our kanjiki snow shoe hike out in the snowfields of Tsugaike.  The kids had to trek through over a meter of fresh snow through the forest and around the area.  It was very challenging, but very fun and the kids could’ve gone on for hours.  We finished our long trek in the snow with some hot lemon tea and snacks.  We finished up in the snow field and made our way back to the kamakura which was ready to form.  We cut out the door on the base and were ready to play inside it and warm up.  The kids also got to decorate the kamakura with our own water color based paints.  It was very cold and the visibility was a little hard at the moment but we got in our time with it.  After it was time to go inside for another hot meal, bath and finish up with some story time.  

On the last day we took a more slower approach since the first two days were action packed.  We did our traditional graffiti party in which the kids write special messages on a blank shirt and share memories with their friends.  Once we finished that we continued to share memories with each other, but this time we did it with some journal time.  The kids were able to write and draw about their memories from the camp.  Also the kids made their own oyaki buns, which they made them with pumpkin.  It was a great gift to take home with them.  Last but not least the kids wanted one more chance to play with the snow so we had them go out for their own final time with their friends and take some pictures with the polaroid camera.  They all got pictures and took them home with them to remember about how awesome this camp was.  

This was our first camp in Hakuba and we had great hospitality from Go San and his wife at Daiju Lodge.  Also Obi from his nature school, Otari Nature School was amazing and helped up create a special experience for all the kids that joined us.  We are going back to Hakuba in the Summer so we are very excited to spend some more time with Obi and his crew.

ACE Club Halloween English Fall Camp@Kusabue No Oka 2016
to Oct 16

ACE Club Halloween English Fall Camp@Kusabue No Oka 2016

★★★ACE Club Halloween Camp 2016★★★

We had a fun filled, spooktackular Halloween camp at Kusabuenooka Park in Sakura, Chiba.   The weather was perfect and the kids were ready for some Halloween festivities.   This was an overnight camp/day camp(for the younger kids) experience that left the kids wanting more when it was finished.  It was hard to part ways when it all ended. 

On the first day we started off with some icebreaker games in English in order for everyone to get to know one and other.  The kids all bonded together well and friendships were made very quickly.  Later that day the kids got to design and carve their own pumpkins.  It was great to see their creative side design some funny or scary pumpkins.  Our next event was a great hands on activity that the kids really enjoyed, they got to make their own scarecrow.   The kids gathered leafs, sticks and rocks and filled the scarecrows clothes.  Once they stuffed the scarecrows we had a fun game of “hide and seek” with the scarecrows.  We then finished the day camp portion of the camp with some trick or treating.   The kids were given clues about the Halloween characters and had to find them throughout the park in order to collect their candy.  At the end of the night we used our carved pumpkins and lit them up with candles and went on an adventurous night hike throughout the park. 

The second day the kids went on one of our fun filled Halloween scavenger hunts.  The kids had to walk throughout the park finding all the characters, such as Frankenstein, mummy, vampire, etc.  It was a great team bonding game, as they had to work and use their communication skills to complete the task.  After lunch we played some camp games, did some slack lining and had some free time.  We finished off the camp with a traditional Halloween activity, the piñata! The piñata is a paper stuffed character filled with candy or other goodies.  The kids have to try and smash open the piñata, while blindfolded in order to get the candy.  This was a great team bonding exercise and the kids were rewarded with LOTS of candy. 

The camp was a lot of fun for both us the staff and the campers.  We are looking forward to our next Halloween Camp in the Fall.

★★★ACE Club Summer Nature Camp 2016★★★

We had our Nature Camp in Kimitsu, Chiba.  This was a weekend to get down and dirty with nature.  It was a hands on camp as the kids were observing, touching and playing with everything from the great outdoors.   The kids had a great time with no time to even think of screens!

We opened up the camp with some fun games such as name tag, rock, paper, scissors train which allowed the kids to get to know each other.  It was great to see this group of kids form friendships with each other.  After lunch, we cooled off with some fun water activities in the open ground area.  The kids were running, laughing, singing while getting soaked with water.  The kids changed into dry clothing. Then we went trekking into the forest on a nature scavenger hunt to find all sorts of things from, sticks, bugs, rocks, flowers.  Once we returned from the hunt we used what we collected in nature for craft time.  The kids painted all the treasures they collected from the forest. It was nice to see the creative side of their personalities.  One of our summer traditions is the watermelon smash.  The kids had to communicate by giving directions in order to smash the watermelon open.  Once they cracked it open we had some delicious watermelon to eat under the sun.


After dinner, the kids had some journal time to write and draw about their activities and had a good rest.   When they sun went down and the stars came out we had a good old campfire. The kids helped to build the fire with the wood and maintain it as the evening went on.  Of course, when there is fire, it’s time to roast marshmallows. The kids got to make their own s`mores (graham crackers, chocolate and marshmallows).  They couldn't get enough of them and kept coming back for more.  As the night went on the kids wound down and got ready for bed.  The night finished off with some bedtime stories and then it was sweet dreams!

The following day we weren’t so lucky with the weather, but of course we were able to still have fun indoors playing games like, tag, hide and seek.  We also had our own indoor Pokémon hunt throughout the building which the kids had to find all the characters, write down their names and bring them back to the leaders.  We finished off the weekend with some lunch. On our way home, we stopped at our favorite rest area for a good footbath which was great as our feet had been running around all weekend.

We are looking forward to our next Summer Nature Camp, meeting new people and seeing some familiar faces as well.

ACE Club Summer Beach Camp 2016

We held our Summer Beach Camp at Hota, Chiba.  The sun was shining and the kids could not get out of the ocean.  We had a great time playing games in the water and on the beach.  We also hiked to the top of a mountain to see the great big Buddha.    

We opened the camp with an orientation about water safety and set out the rules for when we play in and out of the ocean.  We started off with some ice breaker games in the water and then followed up with lunch in the Resort.  Then the kids got on their sunscreen and went back to the ocean ready for more fun.  Our first game after lunch was an alphabet hunt, where the kids had to find letters in and out of the ocean. After that they worked in teams to spell certain words.  Once we completed the game the kids had some time to cool off in the shade and get some healthy snacks.   With their energy levels back up and bodies hydrated we went back into the water for a relay game in which the kids had to catch the sponges and squeeze the water into a bucket.  The team that squeezed the most water in their bucket won the game.  It was a great game to work on hand and eye coordination, teamwork and communication.  Of course, on a hot summer we did our watermelon smash activity.  The kids had to communicate with their teammates in order to find the watermelon and smash it. Then it was time to rest, relax and eat the watermelon.   To wrap up the beach activities we had our very own ACE Club Beach scavenger hunt.  Kids were working in teams to find items that you would find on a beach, such as seashells, drift wood, flat rocks, crabs, starfish, etc. Once we finished that kids made their own sand castles and decorated them with their scavenger hunt treasures.

The sun went down and the kids cleaned up inside with a hot shower and onsen.  Once dinner was over it was timeto reflect on the day with some journal time.   Each kid drew and wrote about their favorite activity of the day.  It was getting late, so the kids got together for a bedtime story and then lights out.

The sun rose and the kids were up early on the second day ready to go.  We had our breakfast and then back out to the beach for an early morning swim in the ocean.  We played a game of kickball, which follows the same rules as baseball, but you have to kick the ball. The kids run around the bases in the ocean.  It was time to clean up and the kids packed up and we got ready to head over to Mt. Nokogiriyama.  The kids had some time to see the Nihonji Daibutsu and then we hiked to the top of the mountain.  We took in the beautiful views of the Boso Peninsula and had some healthy snacks.   It was time to hike down and wrap up our camp.  We packed our bags and headed to the train station to go back home.  We travelled back on the train to Chiba station, sharing stories about our experiences and had some good laughs.  

It was an action packed weekend for both the staff and campers.  Lots of memories were had at this camp for everyone that would make them remember about that summer camp with ACE Club.

★★★ACE Club Spring Camp 2016★★★

We held our Spring Camp in Kashiwa, Chiba.   The weather was cold, but we kept ourselves warm with lots of fun activities. We kept a good campfire going throughout the day for those that got cold.  

We started off the camp with our orientation and our own ice breaker games.  Once the kids got to know each other we started with the first activity, Easter egg decorating.  The kids made their own Easter baskets and painted the eggs. The kids were hungry so we had a BBQ.  The kids and staff worked together to prepare the food, cutting, slicing and peeling.  The kids prepared the vegetables for the yakisoba and curry.  After some hard work, they were rewarded with a delicious lunch.  After running around in the woods and letting their food digest, we got ready for our own musical event.   The kids used plastic cups and learned how to play the cups song.  It took us some time to get it together, but in the end we had mastered it, ready to open eyes with our skills.  The Easter eggs were dry so we had an Easter egg hunt.  The kids took turns as groups to hide the eggs throughout the forest, while the other group would find and retrieve the eggs.  After that was done they had some snack time and enjoyed their Easter snacks.   The night was creeping up so we cleaned up and enjoyed some curry and rice.  After we went for a night hike around the campground and then played some glow stick throwing games.  It was time for the kids to shut it down after a long day of fun play and activities.  

The birds were singing, sun was shining and the kids were up bright and early.  We enjoyed some breakfast and warmed up by the campfire.  Once they were warm, we had some free time to do activities such as soccer, slack lining and arts and crafts.  Our next activity was a nature scavenger hunt.  The kids got into their teams and worked together to find all the objects on the list, such as Y shaped sticks, rocks, insects, tree bark and other random items found in nature.  The kids gather and we went over what we found and were rewarded with some hot tea and fruit.   After we did a group game that the kids had to form a caterpillar.  They had to keep balloons between each camper with their bodies and no hands.  Their job was to work together to move from one point of the campground to another. It was really fun to watch and great to see all the campers working hard together to achieve a goal.  It was time to end the camp, so the kids cleaned up the campground and organized their belongings before heading home.  The kids all got along and formed some great friendships.  It was hard for them to part ways after having an amazing weekend together. 

It was great to meet a lot of new campers and see some familiar campers.  We look forward to seeing them at our other camps. 

Thanks a lot.
