for Student & Education
In a world that demands an understanding of numerous cultures and customs, we believe it is imperative to equip our youth with the ability to meet the challenges of a demanding global society. International travel for students is one of the most effective ways of introducing our future generations to the foundations required to succeed in our ever changing society.
One of the largest requests we receive from the agents we work with are for school groups and educationally focused tours. With our direct rates, competitive quotes, safety standards, and fully customized itineraries designed specifically with the school’s objectives in mind, we can provide parents, teachers, and the school’s board with a collective sigh of relief, and perhaps a bit of excitement for the anticipated travels ahead. Canada has entrusted us with their school groups and educational tours with a team that is knowledgeable, passionate, energetic, and experienced in engaging students with a tour programme that speaks to them. This is no ordinary educational travel experience, let us know how we can help you with your next student group.
[Customised All Year]
Educational tours for middle and high school students, as well as cadet groups, is a growing part of our business.
The Canadian Veterans, their families, historians, and communities in the destinations we work with help to create a fundamental opportunity for students who travel with us. We know how empowering the educational benefits the battlefield can be.
For teachers, and lead organizers, as well as our agents, we will customize your group in detail and encourage you to incorporate your curriculum into a perfect and relatable program for your students.
Before the tour, students can expect map kits, info kits, and all of the travel information they need to know before their tailored trip. Both parents and students can also request meetings and have the team come in and speak about the tour they are about to embark on.
For Canadian students, our Battlefield Tours can provide opportunities and open them to resources they never though available. Students will do more than visit the monuments, they will meet the communities, historians, and behind the scenes look into the Canadian Involvement in the First and Second World Wars.
Our close relationships with tourist boards, communities, and organizations - both in the destinations we work with, and back home in Canada - allow our travellers access to some of the most incredible resources from the First and Second World Wars.
We highly regard these organizations as marvelous sources for support and information for both teachers, students, and agents.
Learn how to embrace these resources and opportunities by exploring some of our top resources, may it be the beginning of an astounding journey of exploring Canadian history with your student group .
[Promoting your trip]
Advertising your trip can be done in many ways. If your school allows, you can put posters around the school, hold meetings for those interested, make daily announcements, send out email blasts. If you are unable to advertise at schools, you may want to put notices in the community section of your local newspaper , post on local community websites, contact churches and local youth groups. Recruitment meetings could be held in the evening with parents invited. Provide light refreshments, share photos from previous trips, and provide lots of time to answer questions and concerns. One effective means of recruitment may be to target certain student groups – honor students, those taking foreign language or arts course s, students with teacher recommendations, etc. There is a clear difference in just having open enrollment or sending a letter to parents stating that their child has been selected to travel.
