BRIDGE Summer Camp 2023

TopBRIDGE Summer Camp 2023

``BRIDGE KIDS PROGRAMS'' is a summer program in which more than 200 11-year-old child ambassadors and their chaperones invited from all over the world engage in dynamic cross-cultural exchange by treating the entire city of Fukuoka as a campsite. (Bridge Summer Camp).
Until last year, we held "BRIDGE Virtual Summer Camp" to interact online due to the coronavirus pandemic, but this year we have decided to hold it face-to-face for the first time in four years! !

Look forward to interacting with children from over 30 countries and regions around the world! ! \(^o^)/
