The time has come to announce the winners of June's photo contest!
Last week, Montréal celebrated its 375th Birthday. A wide range of activities are planned to mark the occasion. We have roots in Montréal and send countless student groups there - for both French and Spanish immersion trips with their language teachers - so it comes as no surprise that much of our team has something to say about what this wonderful city means to them:
Hey! If you're planning a winter class trip to Quebec with Jumpstreet Tours, this video is a great recruitment tool.
Now's your chance to give your students that quintessential class trip memory that so many of us cherish from our own high school years.
In March we gave you our latest International Brochure, featuring itineraries and pricing for destinations all over the world.
Now here's our Domestic Brochure, the second installment in our 2017 student travel brochures that shines a light on trips to Quebec, New York City, Washington D.C. and more!
There are itineraries, trip-planning resources, and testimonials from teachers who are having a blast with us.
The catalog is free - we just need a few quick and basic details from you to proceed. It's a two-minute download that could lead to a lifetime of trip memories!
Last month we shared a beautiful testimonial from Tehya, a student from New York who had wonderful things to say about her recent Jumpstreet school trip to Morocco. Everyone in our office was so moved that we started exchanging some of our own life-changing travel moments; now, we sharing them with you!
It’s no secret that maple syrup is huge in Quebec. No matter the time of year, virtually all of our Quebec student tours experience its gooey goodness when they visit a cabane à sucre (sugar shack), where syrup is cultivated from maple trees.
Thanksgiving is a time to get together with our loved ones and eat copious amounts of pie-based food. Canadians celebrate this wonderful feast this weekend, and boy do we have a recipe for you!
Ah, the holidays - a time to break bread and share in the spirit of warmth, generosity and shopping mall madness. Up here in Jumpstreet’s native Québec, the holidays usher in a wide array of festivities. Montréal’s thriving Jewish community, for example, comes to life during the eight days of Chanukah. But like most of the Western World, December in La Belle Province is largely synonymous with Christmas. Ever the bon vivant, we often mark the occasion with a day-long tribute that runs long, long into the night. It’s called Réveillon, and it’s a lot of fun.
Literally translated as ‘awakening’, Réveillon is a French Catholic tradition that dates back to the mid-1800s, when families would break fast and tuck in to a late-night meal after Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve. The event earned its name from the way that the meal would rouse participants after the labours of their day-long fast. Nothing says “rise and shine” like a hearty meal, especially if you’re starving! It’s a tradition that is celebrated in France and Quebec, not to mention countless French communities around the world, from the New Brunswick to New Orleans.
