A network that spans the nation (prefectural camping associations)

We have established prefectural camping associations throughout the nation where we perform a variety of localized activities including camp instructor training seminars, various types of workshops, and family camps (the Brush Up & Communication Project). (As of 2010, prefectural camping associations are being operated in forty-six prefectures).

A strong partnership with outdoor activity groups and educational institutions


The National Camping Association has formed partnerships with various outdoor activity groups, educational institutions, and other organizations in Japan and around the world. Through these partnerships, we promote collaboration, the exchange of information, and leadership training regarding outdoor activities.
