Coordinator’s Message As the Summer Camp Program Coordinator of KGIC’s 2011 Summer Residence Program, I would like to thank all student participants and staff for the many great and unforgettable moments that we shared together. During the 7 weeks living together, the diverse group of nationalities provided a great opportunity for students to gain friendships, intensive English skills and maturity. Every student brought with them a unique perspective, ideas and knowledge, which functioned to create an atmosphere of acceptance and understanding within the group. The camp structure motivated students not only in academic ways during the intensive English class, but also the activities, excursions and tours contributed to an outstanding experience. Students experienced Canada as a multilingual country through the French Canada Tour which provided unforgettable memories. The Ivy League Tour gave students a greater understanding of world views. Students visited New York, Boston and Washington DC, three major cities in America which influence the world economy, education and politics. I will never forget our visit to the prestigious Harvard, MIT, NYU and Cornell Universities. Our Students experienced intrigue and excitement. I truly believe that KGIC’s built-in curriculum had a profound effect on each student’s educational development. I cannot forget all the memories and enjoyable experiences: The surprise string concert during the French Canada Tour, the enjoyable dance party, the tearful graduation and farewell ceremonies, Global leader projects, volunteering to plant 10,000 trees, Ivy Tour, drama nights, academic learning in class, workshops, Wonderland, and even waiting for dawdling students in the shopping malls. Overall, we all made KGIC Summer Residence Camp both academic and fun! I truly believe that everyone who participated in the summer camp have enjoyed their experience here at KGIC Toronto Summer Residence Program and took a wonderful experience of Canadian life back to their countries. Thanks everyone for an amazing summer! We look forward to seeing you all in 2011!
