Campsite Guide-National Myoko Youth Outdoor Learning Center-
(Sekiyama, Myoko City)



Focusing on camps that have become increasingly popular in recent years, we are doing our best to publicize the campgrounds that are open in the Joetsu area (Joetsu City, Myoko City, Itoigawa City).  Not only detailed information on each campground, but also spots recommended by the editorial department will be posted.  It’s good to have fun with your family, or to enjoy your time as a solo camper.  Why don’t you go out to play in the great outdoors?

【Open June 1 – September 30】You can experience the nature of Myoko!

“Myoko Youth Outdoor Learning Center” in Sekiyama, Myoko City, Niigata Prefecture.  It is located on the foot of Mt. Myoko, at an altitude of about 600m, in the Myoko-Togakushi renzan National Park.

Experiential learning in nature

“Myoko Youth Outdoor Learning Center” is an educational facility that aims to nurture strong and confident young people. The center hopes that participants can use their experiences in the wilderness to lead the next generation of citizens. They can acquire experiences that cannot be found in their daily life at home or school.  The center caters for schools and group activities, but if you have children, you can still use the campsite.
