Cabell County Schools will be offering a virtual summer camp opportunity for students currently enrolled in a Cabell County public school and wishing to experience an immersion into Japanese culture. The district's Japanese Summer Immersion Camp is free and open to students who will be entering fourth through seventh grades during the upcoming 2020-2021 school year. Students must have access to reliable internet and be able to login and participate in a 2-hour class daily for four days. Camp will be scheduled Monday–Thursday from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM. There will be two different weeks of camp. Week one (1) will be conducted June 15-18, and week two (2) will take place June 29–July 2. Students may only attend one week of camp. Camp is open to the first 50 students registered each week. Registration is on a first come, first serve basis. Please be sure to complete the Google Doc found in Eventbrite to complete your registration.
During the week of camp, students will learn Japanese language and culture through virtual sessions with native speakers. Instructors will teach culturally authentic songs, dances, games, and art.
The Japanese Summer Immersion Camp is sponsored by Toyota Motor Manufacturing in West Virginia, Nippon Tungsten, and Cabell County Schools.
Please note: While Eventbrite will issue your child a “ticket,” the ticket is not necessary. It is for registration purposes only.
