Host Families needed for 15 students from Japan in July 2023


The Campbelltown - Koshigaya Sister Cities Association will host a delegation of 15 students from Koshigaya for their visit to Campbelltown for 10 days from Thursday 27 July to Sunday 6 August 2023. This is the first delegation since 2019, before Covid stopped the visits from both countries. The students are aged between 13 and 14 and are carefully selected for the trip by the Koshigaya education and city officials.

  • We are looking for families to host one or two students for the duration of their trip.
  • If you have space at your residence where one or more students can stay in a welcoming and safe environment, we would welcome an application from you to be a host family.
  • You don’t need to have children of the same age to be able to host.

From Monday to Friday the Campbelltown - Koshigaya Sister Cities Association provides daily activities for the students. The host families have the students on the weekends and can plan activities for that time.

Each of the students looks forward to experiencing the Aussie way of life.  It’s a wonderful opportunity to form new friendships and also learn about another culture.

The application form to host a student is at the bottom of this page. Please download the form, complete and return it.

If you need any further information please contact Secretary, Veronica on 0417 780 422 or email
