Summer Experience is a full-day program from 9:00AM to 3:00PM for students currently enrolled in Pre-K through Grade 6. You may sign up your child for one, two, or three weeks, whatever fits your family's schedule best!


“Choose your experience!”

Students KB and older can choose their experiences! We have 4 periods of fun activities throughout the day. For each period, students get to pick which course they want to partake in. Popular courses will be occupied on a first come, first served basis, so make sure you sign up early to secure your top choice course!

Pre-K and KA students will focus on literacy, numeracy, fine and gross motor skills, and social skills in a fun and safe environment, much like Canadian Academy’s early childhood classroom setting. We will continue to expose children to learning experiences in line with Canadian Academy’s philosophy with a touch of summer fun!


Every day is ‘Falcon Time!’

At the end of each day, we have an activity slot for skill building and fun. Each group consists of Pre-K to Grade 6 students, teachers, and staff. Every day brings a fun new challenge!


Summer Experience Course Offerings 2022

  • Coding
    The Coding class will provide students with an introduction to coding and computer science. This introductory class will allow students to understand the fundamentals of computer languages using the program Scratch. This program is easy and intuitive which will allow students to get a grasp on how to communicate with computers in an enjoyable way!
    Instructor: Pranav Sachdeva
  • Filmmaking
    Students will explore filmmaking from different perspectives. They may experience being actors, cinematographers, directors, and authors, and will plan, record, and edit their videos to meet their goals.

  • Music Makers
    Creating and playing music is a great way to express thoughts and feelings that your friends and families can hear and see. I have been doing music for the past 15 years, and would like to share how to create, play and enjoy music. In this class, younger students will focus mostly on different kinds of percussion, while older students will be taught how to create music using computers. Now, let's start making music, music makers!
    Instructor: Goru Shimamoto

    Instructor: Stephen Su
  • Physics in Sports
    Explore how physics influences the way we play sports by analyzing the functions of movement in table tennis. The science of physics plays an important role in the way we understand how to play sports. Every decision we make and movement we do in a sport relates to rotation, gravity, and aerodynamics. In this course, we will explore these concepts in relation to table tennis and how the movement of the ball, player, and paddle relate to physics. You will experience rotation, spin mechanics, gravity, friction, and aerodynamics through fun activities.
    Instructor: Clayton Fergusson
  • Pre-K
    Pre-K and KA students will focus on literacy, numeracy, fine and gross motor skills, and social skills in a fun and safe environment, much like Canadian Academy’s early childhood classroom setting. We will continue to expose children to learning experiences in line with the Canadian Academy’s philosophy with a touch of summer fun!

  • Science Experiments
    Let's explore science around us! We will be scientists and explore lots of everyday science with food and household items. You will learn how to make something disappear, hide secret messages, create interesting designs with heat, and much, much more.
    Instructor: Noriko Kitao
  • Sew a softie Kids can sew, too! Young crafters will learn to sew their very own fun things using simple hand stitches with plenty of encouragement. This will help develop their skills while sparking a passion that will last a lifetime.
    Instructor: Neetu Sachdeva
  • Sports & Games
    Sports & Games is a great opportunity to challenge yourself in various sports and games. Students may find opportunities to sharpen their skills in a familiar sport or pick up new skills in an unfamiliar one. Our teachers are highly experienced in a variety of fields in physical education.
    Instructor: Hiroki Sera
  • Stop Motion
    Ever wanted to make your own stop motion movie? In this super fun, non-stop class, you will learn how to create your own stop motion animated films on a tablet. We will explore many different styles of stop motion animation and the techniques that designers and artists use in creating their films: making storyboards to map out narratives; learning how to design characters; and even using household objects for set design. All of this will be put together as an original movie to share with the class in a final session and to send to friends and family. This workshop is the first step in understanding the mechanics of stop motion animation using a mobile device and designed specifically for the young learner to become budding stop motion animators.
    Instructor: Benjamin Tai
  • Theater and Creative Movement
    Creativity in theater has always been an opportunity for children to explore and express language, emotions, relationships, and topics that impact both their inner and outer worlds. In this Summer Experience session, students will have the chance to channel their imagination and energies into acting and movement, all while having loads of laughs and fun with their friends. If you're ready to do some acting, a bit of dancing, or maybe even some singing, join this session to make memories that will bring a smile to your face! :)
