Description

Fireside Adventures offers an innovative and immersive way to deliver quality ESL instruction to visiting international youth, while providing a fun and truly Canadian adventure program.  While visiting some of British Columbia's most beautiful outdoor, rural and urban locations, youth will work closely with English instructors and English youth to improve their English.  Fireside ESL Adventures (FESLA) is a great summer choice to explore, learn and to be challenged.What makes us different from other ESL youth programs?Total Canadian Immersion - Fireside ESL Adventures gives international youth campers more access to Canada, Canadian youth and a diverse culture.  The design of our programs immerses youth participants within English Canada and provides them more opportunities to practice their English skills.Small Group and Relationship Focus - Our philosophy is that youth campers learn best with small group experiences, rather than massive impersonal ESL programs with 50 or more international students.  A small group experience provides a better learning environment through more direct access and one-to-one time with instructors and fellow youth participants.  Our instructors will stay with the same group for the duration of the program, ensuring consistency and providing an opportunity for youth to develop lasting relationships.Mobility - Our program is completely mobile with youth campers travelling to various locations and being at the destinations they visit.  Only a small portion of the learning occurs in a traditional classroom setting.Innovative Experiential Educational Approach - Fireside ESL Adventures offers a completely experiential education and adventure-based program located in outdoor, rural and urban settings.  We are purposely avoiding duplication with the mass-market ESL programs offered by our competitors.Creative Toolbox Personal Touch - We're "a small business making a big impact on ESL programs".  We take the time to build relationships with every parent and participant because personal connections are an integral component to our company's foundation.Professional Instructors - We hire qualified, enthusiastic instructors to teach and guide all our programs. Our skilled staff are dedicated towards providing an best experience that will be remembered for a lifetime.  Our staff must have wilderness first aid and/or First Responder training, life guard certification and outdoor wilderness training.  They must have cleared a criminal record check, possess post secondary education and have a valid driver's license.Parental Access During Program - Our staff carry mobile phones and check in daily with our head office. We do our best to encourage our youth to contact their parents once they have adjusted to the program schedule.We Are Innovative - There are no other programs that offer our unique ESL youth services. Our educational program is innovative, inclusive and interesting.
