For the campers themselves, vacation programs are an opportunity to improve their foreign language, get to know children from other countries, and have an unforgettable time. This section helps you learn about the programs and costs that are available in Canadian language schools. Despite the country's bilingualism, most language camps in Canada offer English-language programs. But there are also facilities for those who prefer French - most of them are located in Montreal, Canada's capital of French culture.There are several features that make a summer camps in Canada trusted by parents and popular with children.

The courses that offer summer courses in Canada in large metropolitan areas like Toronto or Vancouver are characterized by their proximity to the pace of a business city. For international students, staying at a city camp will be an important experience. Being in a highly international environment, living on the campus and attending classes at a major Canadian university, children get closer to the usual way of life of students in Canada.

The northern neighbour of the United States is not only rich in adventures, therefore, no doubt, it is recommended to spend summer holidays in Canada for schoolchildren from year to year, not only alternating schools, but also studying both English and French. The camp in Montreal for children deserves special attention, because the heritage of several cultures is intertwined in the city, and the residents are proficient in two languages. The child will study French overseas, borrowing traditions from Canadians, choosing to live with a host family.

When choosing holidays camps in Canada for summer vacations, it is worth remembering that Canada, being the first country for foreign students to receive education, offers children a number of academically oriented courses. Programs with this bias provide an excellent base for multiplying your skills and time to adapt to a new environment. Having gone to the program, the child will reconsider his attitude to learning, because the summer camp in Canada uses modern methods, develops creative thinking and takes into account current trends in education.

Location of children's camps

Some of Canada's most popular vacation destinations for young campers are Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal.

Vancouver, famous for its beautiful bridges, expansive parks, waterfront, surrounded by mountain peaks with glaciers and pine forests, is a three-time winner of the title of "Best City on Earth" according to The Economist.

Toronto, Canada's largest metropolis, whose main street begins near the smaller of the Great Lakes, Ontario, one of the largest cosmopolitan cities on the planet, consistently ranks in the top 5 of The Economist's Best Cities to Live In.

Montreal is the second largest city in Canada and the third largest French-speaking city in the world; it is located in the province of Quebec. Thanks to the abundance of festivals and cultural events that change almost every week, the publishers of Monocle Magazine called it the "cultural capital of Canada".

Important criteria for choosing summer camps in Canada

Summer camp in Canada should be judged on many criteria. There are so many rules that the most scrupulous and responsible parents can get confused in them. It is difficult to think through all aspects from the safety system to the nutritional value of the diet. That is why IEC offers its customers only the most profitable and reliable options. Children will learn to speak English and understand their English-speaking peers. Almost all the time spent in the camp will be usefully spent on sports, learning English and art. Theatrical performances and dances await the children. The choice is up to the participants in the programs.

Best summer camps in Canada are located on campuses of universities, allowing students not only to get acquainted with the educational and scientific life of Canada, but also to use the infrastructure of universities: libraries, computer labs, etc. For example, the Digital Media Academy summer camp is located on the campus of the University of Toronto and offers its students unique courses in programming, robotics, filmmaking, etc. on the basis of the well-equipped classrooms of the University.

The camps are interested in the most modern educational developments, so they try to attract the best teachers from all over the country to teaching, since they have a lot of choices in the summer months.

Learn English at Camps in Canada

Best Language camps in Canada give their guests the opportunity to fully immerse themselves in the linguistic atmosphere. To do this, the camp offers classes with different number of hours per week. You can choose the intensity of the program: you can learn the language from 15 to 30 lessons per week. Education is usually carried out in groups of no more than 15 people. All students are divided into groups according to their age and initial language level.

After the lessons the language immersion experience does not end. Students spend their free time participating in the various activities of the school. After the activities, students continue to practice their language with a host family or on campus, communicating with their peers from all over the world.

Types of programs and living arrangements

Summer camps offer several types of accommodation for their foreign students. Pupils can stay at:

  • on the territory of the camp in rooms for 1-2 people
  • in individually rented apartments (hotels)
  • in host Canadian families.

Indeed, many Canadian families participate in educational camp programs, hosting international students. This gives students the experience of maximum immersion in the language environment and informal communication with real people, which is necessary to comprehend all the everyday spheres of the language that cannot be written into textbooks.

For example, in ILAC (one of the best English language centers) accommodation is only possible with a host family. Families are carefully selected and monitored by school staff. Half board or full board is offered. GEOS Children's Camp Montreal has an excellent residence option. It takes 15-25 minutes to get to camp. Residence living is more suitable for more independent and independent students.

Extracurricular Activities and Excursions

Summer camp educational programs usually go far beyond lectures and seminars. Let's not forget, it's summer! As a rule, teachers try to diversify and saturate the leisure of their students with trips, excursions and other activities that allow them to get to know the everyday life and culture of the country better. Students not only organize parties and discos, where they can meet peers and make friends, but also take them on hikes, take them on tourist excursions such as visiting Niagara Falls, bus trips and river cruises, as well as to amusement parks, zoos, museums , galleries and scientific centers. In addition to English language classes, the all-day camp price includes daily sporting and leisure activities, and half-day and full-day excursions at the weekend: Playland Amusement Park, Whistler Olympic Village Whistler, a water park on the lake. Toronto offers trips to Niagara Falls, Canada's Wonderland Amusement Park, Toronto Zoo, the Royal Ontario Museum and many more. Trips to language camps in Montreal include the Aquatic Park, Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the Botanical Gardens, the Ile de Boucherville National Park, Lake Castor, etc.

For example, the Swallowdale Camp at Russo Lake College offers its students a variation of four courses that rotate throughout the day: English, Forest Camp, Activity Camp (Athletic) and Leadership Development Course.

The camps do not disregard the physical development of students. Often after class, children can take part in games (badminton, volleyball, football, softball, table and tennis, etc.) or visit design, acting, cooking, painting or photography circles. All this, of course, is accompanied by communication in English.

 

Camping periods

Most youth camps in Canada take place in the summer, from June to August, when vacation time is longest. However, if a student requests, it is possible to find a course in the fall, winter, or spring break.

How to send a child

You do not need a Study Permit from the Canadian government for studies that take less than 6 months (like summer camp). The visa is a tourist visa (Visitor Visa). If a letter from the camp you want to apply for is needed, you are welcome to get it. You also need to have a Custodianship letter. Children are divided into different age groups, which can vary from one camp to another: 

  •  7-12 years old 
  • 13 to 17 years old. 

When you make a contract with the camp, you will be asked to sign some papers on the internal rules and regulations of the camp. You will also need to prepare documents proving that the child has money to live, a return ticket, a letter from the camp and proof of residence (from the camp or host family). Note that some camps provide additional services to their students, such as shuttle service from the airport on arrival and back after graduation. Also, the camp can help with visa documents and medical insurance.

Cost of children camps

The price of a language camp for children depends on several factors: seasonality, geography, accommodation option, type of food, leisure program, additional costs.

From 530 Canadian dollars offers a program, for example, in Montreal, from 500 Canadian dollars - in Vancouver.
