Joy to the World American International School will be running two summer programs this year — the Tokyo-based Summer Safari program, and its fourth annual Hawaii program.

For three weeks, starting July 26th, children will visit museums, restaurants, beaches, and shopping malls in Honolulu, as well as spend time with children at local kindergartens. While teachers take care of the children, parents can take some time out at the beaches, on the golf course, or go shopping. The program ends with a popular barbecue at Kapiolani Park near Diamond Head.

Principal Jerry Hanus, Hawaiian born-and raised and founder of the Hawaii program, says, “It is a great opportunity for children of all nationalities to explore a new culture and use English in a native English-speaking country, but most of all to experience a new environment.”

In Tokyo, Joy to the World’s four-week program allows children not enrolled in international schools to experience an international school atmosphere. The Summer Safari program includes outdoor water activities, games, songs, and crafts.
