Jam Camp Japan

A group of four Canadian musicians and English teachers recently organized a 3-day music/English study camp in Kamiyama on the island of Shikoku. The Tokushima Prefecture town has a strong artisan community and its surrounding scenic beauty made it the ideal choice for the camp. Local ALTs and English teachers volunteered as translators and otherwise helped run the event. Over the course of three days from May 3-5, facilitators and the 31 participants played games and sang songs in English. Jam Camp encourages youth to use their instruments to jam with other musicians and create new, original English songs.
