Day camps with ESL

Find day camps that specialize in ESL listed below

ESL day camps are ideal not only for local families but also for international visitors staying in Canada and looking for a Canadian summer camp experience for their child. ESL day camps provide a structured environment in which your child can deepen their understanding of English Canadian culture and strengthen their skills in English grammar, pronunciation and written language. There are a variety of types of ESL camps for older children, teenagers, adults and youth. One week and multi-week ESL camps are put on by a number of schools to help kids augment their school learning.

ESL camps are led by certified and experienced teachers. The environment is multicultural and exciting at these day camps, enabling campers to learn English quickly. Extracurricular activities and cultural tours also add to the value of these camps, including arts and crafts, sports, music, drama activities and day trips to local attractions. In addition to summer camp sessions there are also ESL day camps held at other times of the year including March break and Christmas holidays.

Who benefits from ESL camps?
International parents visiting Toronto and other Canadian cities love the convenience of a day camp to help augment their child's understanding of English. As one father has said, "I came to University of Toronto to study English and loved that I could also put my son in an English as a Second Language for four weeks." Day camps offer campers the advantage of time outdoors with friends while they are not separated from family for an extended period of time.

Students will likely take a test that determines their level of English and are then placed in the appropriate class. Grammar, vocabulary, reading, writing, speaking, and listening classes in English are part of these fun camps that also offer activities like sports, shopping, sightseeing and games.
