Best summer of my life

This was an amazing experience and I strongly encourage anyone on the fence to check it out. Both my brother and my sister have also attended these programs and have had an equally compelling expirience. I’ve never been away from home for so long before and I was a little worried, but everyone makes you feel at home right away (even though you’re constantly travelling!). The friends I made on that trip are still my friends and we travel to see each other a couple time a year. I do feel that taking a photography credit was a good choice for me becasue it gave helped me discover the passion I had for it. Since that trip, I’ve entered and won a few different contests using things I learned while abroad. All in all I think it was well worth the money for me and I would suggest that if you’re uncertain to go to an info session for more information. For me it was 10/10!

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
The first day, when you don’t know anybody and it’s all travelling and jet lag. However, people warm up to you pretty quickly and by the third or fourth day any awkwardness at the beginning was long gone.

Blyth Summers - England, Scotland, Ireland

I travelled with Blyth Summers for the first time during the summer between grade 9 and 10. I absolutely loved the experience. The staff were kind and helpful, and truly made the trip one of the best academic experiences of my high school career. I studied photography, which was incredible - our teacher was very knowledgeable and found us extra class excursions, including a pinhole photography workshop! Our lessons were always interesting, and had a great focus on experience and learning concrete skills.
Over the course of the trip, I made so many amazing friends, many of whom I am still in contact with and have travelled with since.
I would recommend this program to any student looking for an exciting and interesting learning opportunity.
