"We are thrilled to be welcoming the Kamakura Jogakuin, HS group again this year," Cheryl Lee, COO of Canadian International Student Services, Muskoka Language International said in a news release. "Families often have life-changing experiences right in their own backyard. It's amazing for the students and equally rewarding for our hosts."

Students will be hosted at the Pacific Christian Elementary campus for a host matching ceremony before departing on Aug. 8. While on campus, they will have a guest speaker from Global Girls.

After the ceremony, there will be plenty of time for the students and host families to get familiar with each other.
