Global summer camps in the U.S. & Japan. English-based. Join adventurous, remarkable high schoolers from around the world for an unforgettable, cross-cultural summer experience.

At Gakko's camps in the Berkshires (upstate NY) and Japan (near Okayama), join 50 high schoolers -- selected from more than 20 nations -- to collaborate with college-aged mentors from renown institutions such as Yale, Stanford, Harvard and Oxford.. In 2-3 weeks of interdisciplinary workshops, global conversations, and profound exploration, we immerse ourselves in an experience inspired by the counselors' unique disciplines and the camp site's history and philosophy. As a diverse group of friends and mentors, we build, and take ownership over, an "undiscovered country" -- a vibrant camp community that has never before existed. Operating for six years now, the Gakko camp project has impacted over 400 individuals from more than 65 nations. This is a one-of-a-kind, life-changing, cross-cultural, challenging-but-super-fun summer experience.
