It’s been almost five years since I went to the WLC summer camp in 2017. However, I can still remember most of it, and it is one of the most memorable experiences in my life. I was not stressed out by the pressure that I had to speak English. I naturally spoke English as much as possible by doing activities with Canadian kids. Also, the camp taught me how to live independently. Especially the “Mission, I’m Possible.” program was awesome. Participants were divided into several teams. Each team got missions to complete and had to get answers from the local passers-by in shopping malls, without teachers’ help. OC Camp (Okanagan College Camp – https://www.okanagan.bc.ca/cs/camp-oc ) was a little challenging at the beginning because I took different classes each week with Canadian kids speaking English only. However, I tried to be kind and stay positive each day, and it worked out. I ended up making a few good Canadian friends. For me, one of the best things about WLC camp was lots and lots of physical activities, swimming in Okanagan Lake, horseback riding, bicycling, hiking, and boating. I enjoyed being active and taking challenges by doing plenty of sports and physical activities since I did not have much time to do physical activities in Korea.

I went to Canada for the 8th WLC camp for a month. I was excited because I had never stayed abroad without my family for such a long time, but it was not as easy as I had thought. I cried to Incheon airport. However, I was not homesick. I took this opportunity to experience real-life spoken English and many activities I didn’t have enough time to do in Korea. For example, sailing, horseback riding, golfing, boating, jumping in the lake, STEM classes, hiking, mountain biking, etc. I was so happy that I could do all of them since in Korea, my life is too busy to try various sports activities because I travel from academy to academy until late evening. Since the camp in the summer of 2022, my English skills have significantly improved, and my outlook on the world has broadened. As a result, I have decided to study English and other subjects hard because the range of dreams and careers I pursue has broadened. Additionally, I have become more mature since the camp. Therefore, I want to go again next time.

I participated in the 8th WLC camp in the summer of 2022. The best part of that was that I used the words I learned from books in real life while doing activities with local Canadian students.

Also, by experiencing Canadian culture myself, I gained a better understanding of other people's lifestyles and ways of thinking. I became more flexible and less judgmental about different cultures.

I didn't have enough time to exercise because I had to spend most of my time studying in Korea. Therefore, it was great to be able to do a lot of physical activities in Canada. It was as if I had escaped from a life of studying trapped in a cramped chrysalis and became a butterfly, flying freely and learning English in real life.

If you want to experience what real-life English is, rather than learning English only from books, I highly recommend that you participate in WLC English Immersion Camps.

I joined the English camps twice when I was in grade 4 and in grade 8. I developed English conversation skills by doing diverse summer camp activities with the local Canadian participants. While socializing with the locals, I could see things from their perspective. As a result, I could understand different ways of thinking and increased my worldview to be more flexible. For me, the best thing about the camps was that I made a couple of good Canadian friends.”

My 10-year-old daughter loves her STEAM classes. Her teacher keeps her engaged with interesting lessons and fun hands-on activities. We really see her progress and she wants to keep learning!
