Letter from the Principal

Hello Students and Parents!

I am pleased to introduce IAC’s first ever Growing Success Summer Program.

This program will allow students to learn about the wonderful landscape of Canada while getting to experience it first-hand.

Exploring the Ontario wilderness and getting to participate in many events, such as kayaking, hiking, swimming while also being connected to the Ontario curriculum is a great experience for all students.

We have counsellors, chaperons and a nurse on staff to ensure the safety of our students. We have insurance and a hospital is located nearby should any issues arise. 

We believe that the hands-on activities, in combination with the Ontario curriculum expectations will allow students to get the most out of learning while also having some fun and exciting experiences.

Please read on for more information as we look forward to hosting this great event for our students.

 

Thanks,

Jerry Yang

IAC SUMMER CAMP 2017

July 30th – August 20th

Week 1 – Toronto

Students will get to explore Toronto while also learning about Canada’s culture and etiquette. During the morning, classes will be help to review a variety of subjects such as the Waterloo Math Contest, social science, technology and commerce. Students will also get the chance to meet professors from the University of Toronto and York University. This week will also include visits to Niagara Falls, the CN Tower, Ontario Technological Centre, Toronto Zoo and the Royal Ontario Museum.

Week 2 – Eastern Canada

Students will travel to get a change to visit Ottawa and Quebec. This time will be spend visiting many well-known universities such as Queens, McGill, the University of Montreal, Royal Ministry College and Carlton University.

Ottawa is also the area in which many government buildings are located and students will get the chance to visit Parliament Hill.

Week 3 – Northern Ontario

Join us as we explore the beautiful scenery and experiences of this great Canadian landscape. IAC will be taking students to Algonquin Park for a trip that combines wildlife adventures but is also connected to the Ontario curriculum expectations. Students will be supervised at all times.  

Students will get the chance to participate in a variety of physical outdoor activates, such as swimming, kayaking, high ropes, hiking. Students will be given guidance by coaches and teachers. A nurse is also located on staff and IAC has liability insurance to protect our students. There are hospitals that are located nearby for any emergencies.

For the technological side of studies, studies will use high tech equipment such as GPS and other devices to learn how to navigate and survive in the wilderness.   

Students will also explore some artistic elements with water colouring and mask making activities.

Other exciting activities include a hockey simulation as students get to try their hand at Canada’s favourite sport. Camp fires at night allow students to enjoy the beauty of this environment after the sun has set. Students will get the chance to prepare their own meals. Near the end of the week students will share their favourite skill at a party for all students. 

All these activities are connected with different Ontario curriculum expectations. For example, the northern wilderness is a very important part of Canada’s history, related to the fur trade. The Group of Seven artists are well-known for painting the amazing landscapes of Canada. The artists believed that Canadian art could be developed through direct contact with nature.

Accommodations will allow students to share facilities with 2-3 students. Bath and washroom facilities are included in each room.

We believe that these many experiences will allow students to get some insight into Canada’s rich and diverse landscape while getting to enjoy and learn about the country’s history.

Come join us for this once in a lifetime experience.
