May Activities – Vancouver

Students gathered in the common area for a Wednesday activity


It’s finally springtime in Vancouver. After all of those months of rain, the sun is shining, the temperature is above 15 and our students are ready to explore all that Vancouver has to offer. Lucky for them, the May Social Activity Program is packed with events that will get them out and enjoying their adopted city.

Nice weather means beautiful views can be seen from atop the Vancouver Lookout Tower at Harbour Centre. The neighbourhoods of Gastown and Chinatown along with the Northshore Mountains, English Bay and the suburbs beyond Vancouver can all be seen from 168m up high in the sky.

May is as good a time as any to get some exercise in and explore Vancouver’s beautiful parks. An afternoon trip to Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge and surrounding trails is in store for the end of the month while a favourite Vancouver pastime of a bike ride around the Stanley Park seawall is to be enjoyed the week prior. The seawall stretches for over 28 km and is the longest uninterrupted waterfront path in the world. To save the student’s (and accompanying teacher’s!) legs, we’ll only cycle 9km along the edge of the park.

As per usual, the mainstays of Study Club on Wednesday and Friday afternoons and Pronunciation Power Class will also be held, offering students a chance to get in some extra English practice.

There is tons more in store so make sure to check out the May Social Activity Calendar for other fun activities and weekend trips to participate in. We’ve even snuck in a few food related afternoons like Conversation Club at a nearby coffee shop and an ice cream filled afternoon down along the waterfront. After all the sampling of different flavours, you’ll definitely be ready to bike the rest of the seawall!
