Message from the Director H
Since I was a child, I have always loved travelling and learning. For this reason, hosting the Toronto Summer Fun summer camp is always the highlight of my year. It is here that I get to see young people following in the path that I have always loved: travelling to another country, making new friends and learning in both the classroom and through the variety of experiences that traveling to Canada has to offer. There was so much to do while you were here, it is hard to believe that we could fit it all into such a short period. I wonder what your best memory was here. Was it strolling through the streets of Toronto on our city tour and taking in some shopping? Was it standing high above the city in the world-famous CN tower? Or maybe , with over 168 million cubic litres of water falling over 50 meters, it was the awesome power and natural beauty of Niagara Falls Yet again, maybe your best memory was the great friendships that you developed with students from around the world. Or maybe it was the overall experience that you had that is truly your best memory. Whatever memory you hold dear to your heart, it is my sincere hope that your time during Toronto Summer Fun 2013 was one of the best experiences of your life. I wish you all the best in the future. Sincerely, Omar Awara

Toronto City Tour
or a welcome to Canada, how exciting is it to introduce the newly arrived international students with a walking tour of the bustling Toronto downtown core. With many attractions such as Dundas square, Eatons Centre, and the numerous skyscrapers, students were in awe of their first look at Toronto. During the studentsâ€™ excursion downtown, they had the chance to shop till they drop in the endless stores of downtown, selling all sorts of merchandise and brand names. Some of the students were just satisfied with the window shopping, others needed an extra pair of hands to hold all their bags. A lot of the students found this to be a good chance to buy some souvenirs for their friends and family back home.
relaxing summer outing on Torontoâ€™s scenic waterfront venue. The day was filled with soaking in the sun, many laughs, good eats and a refreshing dip or two to cool off in the water. The group leader brought a volleyball net and a volleyball and a game of 3 on 3 was arranged. The students seemed to enjoy that immensely. There was also a soccer game, and the end of the day was celebrated with a barbeque and ice cream.
anada‘s Wonderland Is Canada‘s first and largest theme park offering many exhilarating roller coasters and a refreshing water park. The theme park also features many carnival style games offering fun prizes. What a thrilling day it was for the group as many of the students had this day marked on the group’s calendar of activities. For some of the popular roller coasters the lines were extensive but according to the students well worth the rewarding thrilling experience! Also the rollercoaster’s automated picture snapshots taken on the rollercoaster of the students faces produced some humorous, priceless photos. This day was filled with so many rides, games and not to mention some tasty treats, overall this day was an awesome, memorable experience!
he day started very early, and after having breakfast, we headed out to York Mills station where we caught out bus to Niagara Falls. It was the first time for all the students to go to Niagara Falls, so there was a magical feeling in the air anticipating that first of the legendary Niagara Falls. Upon arrival everyone had their cameras ready to capture the incredible sight. Students had lunch later at a traditional Canadian restaurant. Some of the students took the Maid of the Mist tour, and loved it. We headed back to Toronto during the sunset and made it back to Ryerson University residence just in time for a hot dinner.
his world class Zoo offers so many animal & wildlife exhibits divided into seven zoogeographic regions: Indo-Malaya, Africa, the Americas, Austrlasia, Eurasia, Canadian Domain and the Tundra Trek.

The students had so much fun & adventure in exploring and learning about the worldâ€™s wildlife, it was a dynamic day to say the least!
