Homeschooling groups who are looking for something adventurous might be interested in trying out Rendez-Vous Canada – a tour of one of 4 cities of Canada: Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa & Quebec City.
Rendez-vous Canada Educational Programs (RVC) are affordable, curriculum- or theme-based trips to select Canadian destinations. Developed as hands-on cultural experiences for groups of all ages, RVC trips are educational, fun and affordable.
As a youth group leader or teacher, you can bring your lesson outside of the usual milieu with RVC trips. Knowledgeable staff will help you plan every step of your educational visit, starting with identifying the perfect itinerary based on budget and teaching goals.
RVC educational tours are usually recommended for 12 to 17 year-olds, and for groups of more than 15 (including chaperones). The focus is set by the organizers and can include history, culture, language, geography, natural history, sports, arts, etc.
The tours are theme or curriculum-based, and include lots of activities and sightseeing. You can choose from a complete package that includes meals and evening activities or a basic plan that doesn’t include these. Take tours of the city, learn about its history and culture, and see some of the important sights.
Although the program usually refers to school groups, it is open to any interested group. The trips themselves are able to be customized to your group’s needs and interests (like tours of universities, participating in festivals, and day-tripping to extra destinations).
It takes a while to plan, prep, fundraise, and co-ordinate everything, so to get started, contact one of their representatives and talk about what your groups’ needs and interests are.
