Vancouver City Centre Campus

Vancouver, host to the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, is considered one of the most beautiful cities in Canada and has been rated the 3rd best city in the world to live in (source: Economist, 2016). In the winter, Vancouver enjoys mild temperatures in the city (0-15 C) but gets lots of snow on its local ski mountains making it a great location for an active teen winter camp. With a population of 2.5 million people, Vancouver has lots to offer including three professional sports teams, major theatre and music events, and an array of festivals and special events throughout the year.

Tamwood’s Vancouver City Centre winter camp is operated out of the Tamwood Language Centres campus in downtown Vancouver. Campers take classes on campus and do activities in and around the city.
