• Hospitality and Tourism in Orlando

      Open to ALL Ontario High School Students!

      Beat the deep freeze of winter and enjoy the warm Florida sun as you learn about tourism in the number one tourist destination in North America. Enter into Orlando’s world-renowned hospitality and tourism industry as you go behind the scenes at some of the best hotels and restaurants the city has to offer. Learn what it takes to handle the heat as you take part in a cooking class and learn the ropes of Southern hospitality. Visit the University of Central Florida to learn from experts at the largest facility ever built for hospitality management education.

      Enjoy a relaxing afternoon along the sunny beach shores and stop by Dunedin to watch the Toronto Blue Jays at their spring training home. Then hold on tight as you jump aboard the Hogwarts Express and experience life through the eyes of your favourite character at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Continue exploring Universal Studios, the place where countless action-packed movies come to life.

      If you have ever imagined a career in the travel industry, this course will connect you with some of the most accomplished people in the game. In this program, you get to have all the fun of a Florida tourist while also becoming an expert in tourism studies – the best of both worlds!
