Junior Camp Program (9 to 12 Years Old)

Camps at VGC is one of Vancouver’s most exciting English camps, providing students from all over the world a unique Canadian learning adventure during summer and winter!

The Junior Camp Program is especially designed for young learners to sharpen their language skills while experiencing local culture through a series of fun indoor and outdoor activities.

Every student will work on their speaking, listening, writing and reading skills through a carefully-crafted, age-appropriate program taught by our highly-qualified teachers. Students will spend their time at a dedicated Canadian high school campus during summer and at the VGC campus in Downtown Vancouver in winter.

In-class lessons are supplemented with daily opportunities to practice their new skills outside the classroom through practical tasks or in-real life social situations.

IMPORTANT: Students travelling to attend this program must be accompanied by an adult.

The VGC Difference

Diverse Student Mix

This program is especially designed for young learners aged 9 to 12 years old. Our students come from around the world and we implement an English-only policy to ensure a welcoming and inclusive environment.

Safe and Comfortable Accommodations

For a fully immersive experience, students travelling with an adult attending the 30+ Adult Camp or any other program at VGC will stay with English-speaking host families.

All our homestay families are carefully selected and provide a safe home away from home. They come from diverse backgrounds that reflect Vancouver’s multicultural population. Students in our homestay program will receive three meals per day and live close to public transportation.

For students travelling with adults not attending VGC, furnished apartments or assistance in searching for alternative accommodations are available.

Dedicated and Experienced Staff

We have a multilingual team solely focused on running Camps at VGC. Our staff are highly-trained and ready to help with anything that comes up during the student’s time here in Vancouver. They have extensive experience working with a range of students – especially young learners – and ensure that they are in a safe and welcoming environment. We also provide a 24-hour emergency hotline for any emergency situation.
