Who are SCOA Campers?

Most of the Japanese elementary and junior high campers are beginners in English, so nonverbal communication is important. The universal language of sports is ideal for communicating and making friends!

SCOA – more than a Sports Camp!

SCOA brings the American summer camp experience to Japan. Sports include football, soccer, cheer dance, ultimate frisbee and basketball, but campers also experience activities such as capture the flag, water balloon toss, potato sack race, talent shows, skits, friendship bracelets, campfires, S’mores and more!

SCOA’s Mission

SCOA’s mission is to be a bridge between Japanese and American students so they can share their cultures, broaden their views and appreciate their differences. SCOA accomplishes this by bringing American athletes and Japanese campers together in an American camp setting in Japan.
