Schools with a large dormitory on campus are rare in Japan. The junior high school first grade dormitory camp takes advantage of the dormitory to provide students with a chance to experience dormitory life. The camp is optional and is held twice a year. Students can choose which session they would like to join.
Through living in a four-person room, students can learn life skills such as independance, good study habits, communication skills, and the ability to understand others.
Junior high school first grade:
1: April to the beginning of the Summer break.
2: September to the beginning of the Winter Break.
