During this activity-filled summer program, your immersion into English language study and Canadian culture will be enriched through special field trips to “must-see” tourist destinations as well as a variety of fun recreation and cultural activities and the opportunity to live with a Canadian host family.

All classes will be themed to highlight Canadian history, culture and traditions, geography and environment. Students will participate in a variety of reading, writing and creative activities in a challenging and exciting atmosphere.

Local Canadian high school student assistants will join the group making up a 1:5, Canadian to International student ratio. Student assistants will help with learning in the classroom, as well as join in on the afternoon activities.
