Great Lakes Helicopter's Transport Canada–approved charters propel up to three passengers above the scenic countryside of southern Ontario. Guided by the experienced hands of a certified helicopter pilot, flyers ages 5 and older marvel for 20 minutes at sweeping views of the Grand River—one of Ontario's Canadian Heritage rivers. The fleet's superb maintenance assuages fears and facilitates easy riding. Aerial adventurers can alternatively put this Groupon's value toward an upgrade for a tricity tour or a flight to St. George, featuring a quick float through a Tim Hortons' drive-thru.
The experienced tutors at Pi Learning Centre use their Beta math program to bolster pupils' confidence by customizing rigorous mathematics instruction to each student’s needs and learning style. Throughout four sessions, offered twice a week for two weeks, students in grades 1–12 and their tutors defang multiplication monsters through specially tailored worksheets, exercises, and drills. Typically, each teacher oversees the work of six pupils to ensure that each student receives personal attention. The centre’s focus on foundational skills and memorization, which is reinforced by assigned homework, fans out to other academic subjects and may incur a reversal in the direction of shiny apples from schoolteacher to student. Tutors foster further inspiration for numerical prowess with the Pi point prize chart, which awards exercise-completing students with a booty-gathering rewards card.
The instructors at Waterloo Dance don't believe in age restrictions—after sorting students into groups of their peers, they steer 5- and 90-year-olds alike through ballroom and Latin steps. Whether they are prepping performers for a competition or schooling first-timers on basic spins, they cater their lessons to each visitor's goals. Top 40 hits boom throughout the classes geared toward teens, where pupils learn lifts, dips, and how to send texts to their partner in mid-twirl. Meanwhile, children's classes emphasize the confidence-boosting elements of dance while honing motor skills. The studio hopes to foster new social connections between its guests, assuring solo dancers that they need not bring a partner to practice styles such as the waltz, tango, jive, and cha-cha.

At Sosa Gliding Club, instructors and tow pilots don't receive paychecks; they teach others simply to share the joy of gliding. And since the club owns the Rockton Airport-which has two grass runways, a fleet of single- and two-seat gliders, and a clubhouse-they can pass on their knowledge through ground courses. Through cross-country soaring classes, for instance, they teach potential pilots to soar in gliders, finding invisible rising air currents to carry them upward rather than simply gliding the aircraft to the ground. Once students achieve basic piloting prowess, club instructors can then give aerobatic instruction, showing students how to perform slow rolls, loops, and wingovers during adrenaline-pumping staring contests with eagles.
