Charlie and Shyanne are back at it again and will be running a Summer Experience Program in the gorgeous Switzerland!!
Charlie and her team at Supsurfzug will take us around the beautiful Switzerland. We have an amazing itinerary planned including boating, SUP, hiking, cog train, exploring the city, the culture and so much more!
Download the our travel package for more details!
This experience will be accepting a maximum of 10 high-school girls (age 14-17) from Toronto. We will be travelling to Zug, Switzerland (a beautiful town nestled between Zurich and Luzern). Each teen will have the opportunity to experience Switzerland while living with an expatriate family (fluent in English, although not necessarily first language). They will learn first hand the joys and challenges of making global moves from their teen counterparts. They will learn many of the skills we teach at Power4Teens by living with a family that approaches change and challenge with an open mind and has embraced the meaning of adaptability. They will learn first-hand all that Zug (and the surrounding areas) has to offer by exploring the cities of Luzern & Zurich, hiking local mountains, water sports on Zugersee lake, taking local transit and visiting special places of interest. Our hope and idea of living with a host family is to bring the world closer together, by creating lifelong relationships with other teens and their families for the ultimate experience of a lifetime!
Our multi-activity schedule will run Monday to Friday 9:30- 4:30pm with opportunities to meet as a group throughout the week. Each traveller will have the opportunity for free time and to spend time with their host family. Travellers will be hosted by families with an equivalent age child where possible. All meals and excursions are included, airfare is not included.
Shyanne McPherson and Charlie Page will be facilitating the program with experienced local guides to provide greater in-depth knowledge of the area and culture.
Applications and acceptance onto the program is based on a first come basis and suitability for the experience.
