The Best Teen Experience: Where Learning and Adventure Meet
VGC combines our High School Preparation Program with our Summer Teen Experience activities making this course one of the most exciting summer teen English camps in Vancouver. We offer students a complete Canadian adventure where they will be fully immersed in English language lessons designed for the high school student, all while experiencing Canadian culture. It consists of an integrated program where the students have a full day of studies that focus on English relevant to the daily life of a high school teen. Every Tuesday and Thursday students will take their learning outside of the classroom where they will apply their language knowledge to an academic activity. Further to this, there will be daily activities that students can enjoy.
And if that doesn’t sound like enough fun, students will have the opportunity to experience the beautiful wilderness that Canada is famous for. This summer camp gives students the opportunity to spend several days away from the city. We will enjoy swimming in pristine lakes, canoeing, campfires, taking photos of breathtaking Rocky mountains and much, much more!
This program contains relevant English language for the high school student whether they are returning to study in their home country or going on to study at a Canadian high school. It is offered in the summer months only, for students between 13 and 18 years old.
