About Us

Learning in a fun, caring atmosphere

Bodwell's University Summer Programs (BUSP) is one of the biggest and longest running summer English programs in British Columbia.  Since 1992, BUSP is an experience that participants come back for year after year.  Originally started at the University of British Columbia, University of Victoria, and the University of Calgary, BUSP is now a completely British Columbian program, with the University of Calgary location replaced with Quest University in Squamish, BC.

BUSP is associated with Bodwell High School, a private, co-educational, university preparatory, boarding school, located in North Vancouver, BC.  The strength of Bodwell High School's international education program has infused its summer program with the resources and vision required to provide an education focused on love and care.
