Back to Nature

Back to Nature: Snow Adventure on March 4-5

We had an amazing time together in Nagano! It was so wonderful to see the campers gathering the strength to try out something so far from their comfort zones. Even if it was just a tiny bit, everyone grew more courageous while out in the crisp, snowy landscapes on the mountain. We hope to be able to further this growth with more activities in future programs! Thank you once again to our sponsors who helped make this experience happen, KEEN and OMM!

Camper Voices:
“Until now I had thought snowy mountains were scary, but after experiencing the Night Hike I learned that as long as you prepare carefully, you can see a new world.”

Care Worker Voices:
“Because each camper had their own opinions, traits, and ways of thinking validated and empowered by everyone at Mirai no Mori, I could see a positive side to them that I normally can’t in their daily lives.”

“I believe that hearing the Snow Surfing instructor tell them, ‘Following your passion wholeheartedly can lead to it becoming a profession’ really resonated within the campers’ hearts.”
