Stories & Testimonials


2016 Camper - Saudi Arabia

During my time at Pickering College, I had a great experience. We did all sort of activities, the classes were really educational and fun, I never got bored, there was always something to do. The camp gave me a good idea on how beautiful Canada is.

2016 Camper - Brazil

I enjoyed my time at Pickering College because I could have fun and improve my English at the same time, with interesting classes, awesome trips and making friends. It was an unique experience in a life time and I am sure I will never forget the time I had at Pickering College

2016 Camper - Italy

My experience was pretty great, we had a lot of activities and trips that were so fun and interesting, I know a lot of things about Canada now and that’s amazing. I will recommend this camp to my friends because it worth’s every single moment, here the people are super nice. I won’t forget this experience because it helps me growing as a student but also as a being woman, which is really important for me.

2016 Camper - Germany

I found the experience to help Mr. Sturrup at the radio station was very fun and interesting to see how a radio station works. I could chose the music and speak live on air. My parents also said that 102.7 Chop FM is the best radio because it shows children how the radio works and let them also speak on the radio. I will miss the radio and Mr. Sturrup so much I hope that I can come back and I will listen in Germany only 102.7 Chop FM.

2016 ESL Summer Camp - Teacher

My experience with the Pickering College English as a Second Language Program has been nothing but astounding. Working as an English as a Second Language teacher this past summer provided me with the opportunity to work with students from around the world at a close and personal level. With no more than sixteen students in each class, the English as a Second Language teachers feel that they are able to work one-on-one with students to improve all aspects of their English reading, writing, speaking and listening skills. I can say that I am proud of every one of my summer students.

The program is inquiry based with an emphasis on collaboration and group learning. With a focus this summer on the European Cup and the summer Olympics, we were able to involve sports from around the world to engage our students with real life practices in the classroom. I have seen students grow in both their social and academic abilities and have never met a more amazing group of inspirational, international students.  

2015 Thai Camper

I enjoyed Pickering College very much and I have improved my English accent in 4 weeks.  I learned more than English.  I would like people in other countries to know that if English is not your first language, I would like you to come to learn at Pickering College. It was very good for me.

2015 Mexican camper

The best part of the camp is meeting new friends from different places.  The trips are so cool and interesting.  You can learn more English.  I improved my English in 4 weeks. The English classes are interactive.   I like to be here because you get along with people from different countries

2015 Japanese Camper

I really enjoyed this summer camp because I made many friends from different countries. I liked the teachers because when I had a question about something, they taught me.  If you come to this camp, you can do many new things. There is a radio station at Pickering College and we did shows on the air.  In class I learned many things.  This is my experience of this camp. This camp was so much fun.

Thank you from Mexico

I am writing a few words to thank for the wonderful time that my daughter had at Pickering College this summer 2012; it was a great experience for her, she was so happy, she learned, shared, cried, ate and specially she made many new friends from all over the world. As parents we made the best decision in sending her to Pickering College! I want to thank everyone at Pickering College who made this camp the best experience for my daughter ever.

Pickering Camp - Incredible Experience

The ESL Summer Camp is an incredible experience for students from around the world to immediately learn and apply English skills in a Canadian classroom. As a teacher, it is a great privilege to lead such talented and motivated students in an intensive, experiential program. The summer camp welcomes students who are sometimes shy and hesitant to speak and, after 4 activity-packed weeks, bids farewell to energized, confident communicators. At Pickering College, it is such a joy to see my students happily discover the value of real world practice and make English a learning priority when they return home.

From an Educational Consultant

Pickering College is one of a few private boarding school in Canada that offers excellent ESL + Activities programs during summer. It also provides very welcoming and at-home atmosphere from the first day students arrive at campus until the very end when students walk through the security gates at Toronto Airport. Every summer program staff at Pickering College is well trained, experienced, and most importantly, wanting to make the summer program memorable for students in every possible way. Therefore, all of our students are always well taken care and have lots of fun. There are great ranges of activities, the fun part of summer program, such as camping and outdoor activities in nature, city sightseeing of Toronto, watching professional games, and many more. In addition, students come from many different countries to the program every summer. The administration works its utmost to have as many nationalities and mixes as possible. This creates an atmosphere where students are encouraged to interact with students from different cultures and backgrounds in English. We would say this summer program is the perfect program for those who want to improve English and experience what it is like to go to a boarding school in Canada”

The best

I think the ESL camp was the best thing I ever did in my summer holidays. It also was a great thing to meet other people from other countries. I met guys from Mexico, Colombia , Hong Kong… and they taught me about their culture, it was very funny. I had a very great time in my summer at Pickering College and I really want to come back ! Best wishes.

From Japan

My son had a wonderful time during your summer camp. He made some good friends and has many great memories of this camp. I deeply appreciate all your sincere effort and help for our son during the camp.

Mission Accomplished

I want to take the opportunity to thank you for all the happy moments that my kids had during the summer camp, they came back fascinated and wanted to stay for longer. Our main goal was to give them the opportunity to broaden their view of the world and always to have the desire to do and be better. And thanks to Pickering College camp, I can say “Mission was accomplished”

Best Summer Ever

Last summer I spent a fabulous time in Canada. It's a great experience where you have fun and at the same time you can learn English and about other cultures. The staff was so nice! We have classes in the morning, and in the afternoons I cooked, I made a short film, I played sports, I went to swimming pools, with slides and more fun things! In the evenings we watched films and spent time with our friends eating marshmallows and having barbecues. I’d recommend this experience to everyone who wants to meet people from all around the world.
