Promoting Peace, International Friendship and Global Harmony
Heiwa (平和) means "Peace" and "Harmony" in English.
At Camp Heiwa, our mission is to promote peace and understanding through the study of Japanese language and culture in Nagasaki, a city forever marked by the devastating impact of the atomic bomb.
We believe that by bringing together people from different cultures and backgrounds to learn about Japan's rich history and culture, we can foster mutual respect and appreciation and promote a more peaceful world.
Central to our mission is the commemoration of the atomic bomb at the Nagasaki Peace Park. We believe that by learning about the tragic events that occurred on August 9, 1945, and the continued efforts of the people of Nagasaki to promote peace, we can gain a deeper understanding of the importance of peace and the need for continued efforts towards a more peaceful world.
Through intensive language lessons, cultural activities, team sightseeing and newfound friendship, we aim to provide our participants with a transformative and life-changing experience that will not only enhance their language skills but also broaden their perspectives and promote a more harmonious and connected world.
Camp Heiwa is one of GHJ International's newest camp programs. GHJ International, formerly known as Guy Healy Japan, has been operating since 1984 with a variety of language projects and programs that have sent over 100,000 American and Japanese students, athletes, and teachers to Japan and the United States to experience each others' cultures.
