We are looking for Cambridge Host Families!! 

Currently we are looking for host families for our 1 month summer program (June 28-July 25), but we also have full school year opportunities and short term programs throughout the school year. All types of families make good hosts. The families should be welcoming of their student and open to spending time together.

For our summer program, the students are from Spain and are 13-17 years old. They will go to St. Benedict Monday to Friday for English classes and participate in afternoon activities (swimming, bowling, canoeing etc). The students receive a GRT bus pass so families will have minimal driving expectations (arrival and departure at Cambridge Mall and evenings of our day trips to Toronto and Niagara Falls).

Host families provide a bedroom and meals (packed lunch for school days). The student can share a bedroom with a teen of the same gender, but must have their own beds. Bedrooms upstairs are preferred. If the bedroom is in the basement, the window must meet Ontario egress guidelines (at least 15″ in width and height). Suggested activities to do with the student include: seeing the fireworks on Canada Day, visiting a local market, going for a walk through a park, or watching a free movie in the Gaslight District.

Host families are provided with $1,050 for the program to help cover the cost of food and utilities.

It’s a super fun program and the students are lovely.

Please call or email us by May 24th and include your name and phone number!

Thank you,
