Great Canadian Summer Program

Do you like sunshine, warm weather and beaches? Join us in Vernon for our summer program taught by fully qualified British Columbia teachers. All of our programs run Monday to Friday and include meals, snacks, activities and accommodation with a Canadian host family.

The Great Canadian Summer Program

“Learn English, Have Fun!” This program is designed to help students improve their English skills through classroom instruction focused on reading and comprehension, academic writing, and speaking. A typical day will include English instruction in the morning and fun activities in the afternoon. We use only qualified teachers and include Canadian students as study buddies who act as peer tutors to help students practice their English with kids their own age. Starts every Monday, mid July – mid August. Minimum is 2 weeks. Open to ages 12 to 18 years.

English Prep Program

This program is specifically designed for International Students starting school in Canada in September. The English instruction is more focused and intense with the goal of preparing students to start school with confidence. Students will also learn about the city of Vernon, its facilities and transportation. The program combines English instruction with an interesting and fun activity program. The EPP is offered the week before school starts and runs the last week of August.

I enjoy working with international students and am always happy to play sports like soccer with them during the day or after school. Charles Bloom is a great place that is close to Vernon and my friends at other schools. I think you’ll love living in this community and will always remember your time at CBSS! Welcome to Canada!
