Adventure Program

NIS truly believes in offering our students the best year of their lives! We wish to provide them with a warm friendly home, strong academic program, program support and activities! We recognize the need for our students to remain healthy and active during their year abroad. In each region of the province, we offer our students an adventure package that has one activity each month. These activities will provide the students the opportunity to interact with other students and experience adventures that are unique to Newfoundland. These activities include skiing, snowboarding, river rafting, whale watching, zip lining and so many more. You won't want to miss it!

There are differences in activities based on the location of the child's school, but we are here to help you make the best decision about where the best placement is for your child.

Summer Activities

Summers in Newfoundland are amazing! During this time large numbers of icebergs float past our shores while whales migrate through our waters. This makes for a spectacular show and opens up many fun activities. But not all summer activities in Newfoundland are on the ocean. there are fun races organized in Corner Brook like the annual “5K Foam Fest” and there is river rafting, sea kayaking, zip-lining, caving and so much more!
