Teen Camp Program (13 to 17 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 Teen Camp Program is for students who want to build on English skills that are relevant to the daily life of a teenager, as well as prepare them academically to transition to a Canadian high school or to college or university in North America.
Suitable for students of all levels, this program also integrates workshops to enhance soft skills, communication and leadership. Student will be taught by our highly-qualified teachers 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.
VGC levels are mapped to the CEFR and their Cambridge Levels. Students who have PET or KET equivalent levels will spend the afternoons strengthening the foundations of their skills, working on fluency, vocabulary and error corrections to enhance their communicative abilities. Students who have FCE or CAE equivalency will have the opportunity to learn about intercultural communication, with a focus on developing their leadership skills in our Global Leadership program.
