Encounters with Canada


Encounters With Canada (EWC) is a unique opportunity for Canadian teens to meet other young people from across the country. Spend an adventure-filled week in your nation’s capital! Check out future career options, discover your country, share your hopes and dreams. For 36 years, EWC has delivered a rich and varied, bilingual program. To date, more than 110,000 youth have lived the EWC experience… now it’s your turn!

Although you may not be able to attend EWC while you're at Springvalley Middle, you can definitely apply once you're in high school.  You must be between the ages of 14 and 17 when you go on your adventure and you can go on only one.  Talk to Mr. Gruenenwald if you're interested.

Note: The cost is $750 for any Canadian student, no matter where they live, so this is a great opportunity for an inexpensive, once-in-a-lifetime adventure.
