Family vacations often involve sightseeing, taking photos, trying local food and buying souvenirs to bring back home. Although these activities are fun, there is more your family can do to truly capture the essence of a city. Why not fully immerse yourself and your family into the culture, language, and lifestyle? Here are #TheFastFive reasons why you should book your next family vacation with ILSC Family Camps.
1). Unforgettable Activities
Our activity coordinators have designed the perfect combination of exciting excursions and free time to keep your family engaged while allowing time to explore the city as a family. Our winter program activities include walking across Vancouver’s 70-metre-high Capilano Suspension Bridge, experiencing the majestic Skyride to Grouse Mountain, and a Peak 2 Peak 360 Experience at the world-renowned Whistler Village. Some of our summer excursions that take place in Vancouver include a trip to Science World, rock climbing, ocean kayaking, and an exhilarating ride with Flyover Canada, whisking you away on an 8-minute journey across Canada, from east to west. Summer program excursions in SanFrancisco consist of a ride on the world’s first dueling looping coaster at Six Flags Amusement Park, surfing lessons, a hike in the beautiful Muir Woods, and walking along the iconic 2,737 meter Golden Gate Bridge.
2). Classes to Fit Your Needs
Whether you are new to English or more advanced, we have the right class for you! Children will participate in classes tailored to their age group, while parents will be integrated into adult classes for the study portion. The children’s classes are taught by instructors who specialize in working with young learners so you can be sure everyone in the family will have the support they need. This way, you can focus on your studies with individualized attention, free from distraction.
3). Experience Canadian or American Culture at Home
The best way to truly experience Canadian or American culture is to live with a local. Living with a local family will give your family an authentic experience that cannot be found in a hotel or rental home. Our accommodations staff select host-families who provide a friendly, supportive, and welcoming home for your family. You will be astonished at how quickly your speaking improves when you are immersed in an English speaking environment all the way from breakfast until bed.
4). Meet Families from Around the World
You are amongst friends at ILSC Family Camps. Throughout your time at an ILSC Family Camp, you will interact with other families in an international environment who have also decided to make the most of their family vacation. Enjoy classes and afternoon and weekend activities with other international families from diverse backgrounds. Meeting like-minded families, who have also chosen the vacation of a lifetime, will lead to meaningful friendships beyond the classroom.
5). Bring Home the Ultimate Souvenir
This truly immersive experience will leave you with the ultimate souvenir; to improve your English and speak with confidence. As a family, you can practice what you have learned and keep in touch with other families you met during your Family Camp experience. Learning a language has multiple benefits such as building confidence, connecting with the world, opening up new opportunities, and many more. A new language is a gift more meaningful than a material object or even a photo, and even better, a memory your family will have for life!
