Indoor and outdoor activities

Sharing is caring!


Outdoor activities are popular in summer time and indoor activities are preferred in winter time. But what do you do between summer and winter when the weather changes every day? It’s good to have two options, an indoor and an outdoor activity, for each day so you can decide once you know how the weather is going to be. Here are our top 14 activities you can enjoy on your own, with friends, or with classmates together after school when you sign up for the activities on EC online and meet other students at 3 pm at EC’s front desk. This way you make your free time as much fun as your English courses in Vancouver.

Bowling lanes are also found all over Vancouver. Just gather some friends and enjoy your day at one of the many locations.
