Simon Fraser University, or SFU, is located in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia. Vancouver is BC’s largest city and a gem of a city any time of the year, but especially during the warm summer months. SFU is one of Canada’s premier universities offering rich and diverse educational opportunities. Even during the summer months, SFU teems with educational camps and activities that encompass all age groups. Here is a quick glimpse at some of the great camps that are offered through SFU this summer.

Educational

SFU offers a myriad of educational camps during the summer with a wide variety of choices. Only a few of the many different choices are examined in more detail here.

Never fear, mini-university camp is here. This true university experience is offered to kids age 8-14 and provides kids with a unique opportunity to explore different and exciting subjects. Each day features a different subject which is held on campus in classrooms, labs and SFU’s sports facilities.

SFU also offers a great ESL summer camp with a specific focus on practicing spoken English and having fun while doing so. The ESL camp is open to children age 7-16 and provides and encourages various settings and opportunities to learn and practice spoken English. Three days of lessons are offered each week, while the other time is used to provide students with the opportunity to experience the sights of greater Vancouver. Both of these camps are based out of the main campus of SFU. While dropping your child off at one of the exciting summer camps, take the time to explore and enjoy the scenery of SFU and the nearby neighbourhoods that surround the university. SFU offers great real estate opportunities in and around the campus as well.
