Mongolia Nature Camp
Join LEX members from Japan and other countries to experience our newest Transnational Camp in Mongolia. Participants will stay in a traditional Mongolian Ger Camp in roundhouse tents, and have a chance to commune with big nature, including Mongolian horses and other animals; to engage in cultural exchange with people living a traditional nomadic life, as well as LEX members from around the world; and to immerse in multilingual activities. After the camp, participants will enjoy a short homestay in Ulaanbaatar with a Mongolian family.
