About the Camp

Hello! This is the Recovery Assistance Center of Miyagi which commits on the relief works with Miyagi prefecture and Sendai city. One of our main projects, “International English Camp” is designed to improve the psychological health of the children. A lot of children got a scar in their heart by the Great East Japan Earthquake in March 2011. Through the interaction with the volunteers from international backgrounds, the camps provide the children to get encouraged and to develop the sense of cooperativeness, proactiveness, independence, and awareness to the world outside Japan.
