More details here.

This program is available to both groups or individuals.

The camp is situated just over an hour away from Toronto, in the country side, 20 minutes away from Lake Ontario (to the North) and Lake Erie (to the South), and close by plenty of other natural attractions and activities.

After having spent 2 weeks in the camp, the group will leave the camp for the Toronto & Niagara Tour. For the tour, the accommodation is in downtown Toronto so students will be right in the action!

Camp facilities

Our summer camp in Canada is located off the beaten track with plenty of open fields, woods and forest and nearby water (rivers, lakes) to explore, play, and have fun!

The accommodation consists of typical Canadian camp facilities:

  • Bedrooms with bunk beds, fitted with lockers and air conditioning,
  • Shared bathrooms, common room in the residence for evening or quiet activities,
  • Dinning Hall for the meals.

To help foster the community spirit, the students will tidy up and clean the accommodation every morning.

The chef and kitchen team offer healthy and hearty meals designed for the active students at the camp.

Camp activities

The camps activities are the typical Canadian camp activities:

English language classes

The English classes provided on our summer camp in Canada are not ‘traditional’ classes like the students may have experienced at school; it is a practical English class to learn & practice useful everyday English the student will be able to use right away after class, in the camp, with their Canadian friends.

While some grammar points may be presented or reminded by the ESL teacher, classes will focus on developing each student's discussion and understanding skills, through topics such as the camps activities, presenting one’s self, everyday friends’ conversations, express one’s needs or preferences etc.; and useful vocabulary to interact with the Canadian friends and Camp staff.

While focusing on these topics, the student will build the ability to speak naturally, and correctly, within that very context of the camp, and develop his or her confidence in general to allow himself or herself to be fully immersed within the group and be just like any other Canadian teenager!

While the classes are designed to give the students the tools for this objective, it is truly through the everyday interactions with the Camp staff and the Canadian campers that the student will make a huge leap forward in his or her English level. It is an English immersive experience!
A A2 level or more is strongly suggested to attend this program.

Toronto & Niagara Tour

Day 1
The students will leave the camp at the end of the 2-week session like all their Canadian friends. They will be taken to Toronto, to their accommodation (residence or hotel). After check-in, the students will walk around the area and discover for instance the Toronto University Campus, the Queen’s Park Provincial Legislature and the Royal Ontario Museum, with free time in the Village of Yorkville Park and the prestigious Yonge/Bloor shopping area.

Day 2
Niagara is only 1 hour and half away from downtown Toronto. A bus will take the group to the falls, where the students will be stopping for views of the Floral Clock and the Whirlpool Rapids, before taking a boat to the foot of the Falls. The students will also spend time on Clifton Hill, which is by itself another attraction of Niagara Falls! This is North America after all! Back to Toronto.

Day 3
Walk to the CN Tower and go up to the top viewing point in Toronto, enjoying the views over the skyscrapers and the vista of Ontario lake. The walking tour will carry on with the business area of the city and the City Hall.
The students will enjoy some free time at Dundas Square and Eaton Center, North America’s busiest shopping mall!

Day 4
Walking tour of local neighbourhoods including Kensington Market, Chinatown; the group will pass by the Art Gallery of Ontario and past the Ontario College of Art to go to Queen West Village, one of the trendiest neighbourhoods in town! The group will go back to pick up their bags and take the bus to the airport.

The tour is accompanied by Nacel chaperone morning to evening for groups (staying with the group leader in the evening and at night), and all day and night for the individuals.
