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.
