Overnight camps for ESL

Find overnight camps that specialize in ESL listed below

Summer camp is an enjoyable and educational experience for kids, teenagers and adults. There are plenty of options in kids' camps over the summer months. Overnight camps provide a great new experience to kids in every way and offer a uniquely immersive experience for kids who want to boost their understanding of English. Children grow exponentially in time away at overnight kids camps and interacting with each other at overnight camps, ESL skills are especially strengthened.

Each summer, camps across northern Ontario and the rest of Canada and the northeastern US offer young people from other countries the chance to improve their English language skills while having fun in North America. An ESL camp (English as Second Language) teaches non-English speaking children the fundamentals of this language by way of writing and speaking.

Some ESL camps combine students from different nationalities while others focus on integration with native English speakers. All ESL overnight camps provide your child with accommodation, healthy meals and a deep experience of life in Canada.
