Back to Nature

February Special Back to Nature Program Report

Location: Nagano

Participants: 28 people

Date: February 17-18, 2018


In February, we held a special 2 day 1 night Back to Nature program in Nagano where campers experienced snow surfing. Campers enjoyed playing in the soft powder snow to their heart’s content at Northstar Alpine Lodge. The LITs, who joined us as staff members, did an amazing job of working with the younger campers and making them feel at ease, especially the first time campers. By the end of the first night, all the campers were able to open up and have fun.
KEEN Ambassador and professional snowboarder Sachi Tanaka attended the program and introduced “snow surfing” to the campers. Sachi shared a message that made an impression on the campers. “It’s important to have fun in whatever you do. From now on, in your own special way, find your ‘fun’.”
We would like to thank KEEN and all our supporters for making this past weekend’s winter adventure possible!
