WHO MEETS MY CHILD? – Official Languages Programs



    My friends at home get tired of me talking about my summer at Explore. I gained confidence in my French and in myself in general. I had the best summer of my life with a bunch of amazing people! The only bad part is how much I miss it.

    I met some of my best friends at Destination Clic, and I made some of my greatest memories there.

    Who meets my child at the airport or train/bus station?

    On the day of arrival, if your child is between 13 and 15 years old, a chaperone will meet them at the airport, train, or bus station and identify themselves with official documentation. The chaperone will arrange arrival and departure logistics to ensure safe travel to and from the institution. On the day of departure, the chaperone will remain with your child until they have completed security or taken their seat on the train or bus.

    Note, chaperones may be available for older participants (16–17-year-olds). Contact the host institution for more information.

    My five weeks in the Explore program were the most condensed BEST weeks of my life!
