About the Camps
Our Summer and Winter Camps provide opportunities for students to study English and experience the wonderful lifestyle on Vancouver Island, British Columbia.
English Study and Activities Program
For students seeking a short term program of English studies and activities, Malaspina High School offers students aged 13 to 18 an exciting opportunity to study the English language while participating in field trips and typical Canadian recreational activities. Two, Four, and Six week programs in summer and a Four-week program in winter offer activities such as swimming, basketball, soccer, golf, curling, bowling, canoeing, skating, skiing, and snowboarding for your enjoyment. Field trips to Victoria and Vancouver, popular tourist destinations, are also part of the program.
