Broad types of ESL camps for kids

Depending on your needs, the age of your child(ren) and other factors that matter to you, different options may appeal to you. Click on the links below to find camps in each category, along with more information to help you decide.

Overnight ESL camps are ideal for international students certainly, since they will cover both English learning as well as boarding, meals and other factors. These are perfect for more mature kids and teens as well, in that this environment offers a full immersion in the culture, the language and camp life. They also integrate academic courses with traditional camp activities like swimming and other outdoor summer fun.

ESL day camps are perfect for girls and boys who wish to remain closer to home and brush up daily in their English learning.

Camps encourage learning in English as a Second Language

Camp is an ideal way to improve language skills, for international students, recent immigrants still acquiring basic English, or those who want to enrich linguistic skills and achieve fluency. Camp makes learning fun, and it’s also the starting point for friendships and unique summer fun. At ESL camps, kids will be deeply involved in language acquisition through daily learning, team building and through the interaction with other kids there. Kids will, of course, speak English at these camps, one opportunity to enhance their language skills — and they will also find their second language skills supported. Specialized ESL camps may also offer extra tutoring, unique English-learning activities and, simply, English language communication that helps deepen their understanding of Canada and our culture. Several camps listed above also offer special classes.

High-school-related and other summer ESL classes are operated by experts in teaching the English language. Some camps are run by TEFL-certified teachers who do this year-round, know how to make it appealing and fullly engage learning, through speaking and reading. Instead of languishing during summer, your son or daughter deepens skills and understanding of English.

Find the right English summer camp or school

When searching for an English summer school, families focus on factors like location and programming. There are other things that should affect your decision, starting with the questions listed below. Once you narrow down a short list of camps to contact with questions, you can request more information through any of the camp profiles listed at ourkids.net.

When you speak to camps, consider the advantage of meeting many of them face-to-face. The most efficient way of doing this is by attending the Our Kids’ Toronto Camp Expo, held every February. Many ESL kids’ camps are at the expo, and they’ll enthusiastically answer questions. If you can’t attend, it’s also possible to meet camps at open houses or by appointment.

Questions for parents to ask ESL camps:

  • Are there counselors and teachers with TEFL certification? 
  • How many other kids in the camp are international students or ESL students? 
  • Are counselors and teachers trained in conflict resolution and other issues?
  • Has the camp ever had to deal with bullying issues? What is their policy concerning this? 
  • How much time is spent on formal ESL activities? 
  • How do the activities relate to ESL instruction and retention of information?
  • What is the instructor-to-camper ratio?
  • Can you provide testimonials from other campers and parents?

Other resources relevant to you

Our Kids is really a hub for international learners and students. Here are more pages and resources that should be important to you:

English Language schools offer tutoring and other support that maximizes kids’ language acquisition. These are especially ideal for international students, equipping them for work and life in North America and the rest of the Western World. Canada is rightfully renowned as an international destination for people from Asia, Africa, the Middle East and anywhere else in the world. And there’s no better way to soak up Western culture and the English language than attending one of these schools. Learn more about and find a list of English Language schools in Canada.

For families wanting to fold all living costs into one fee and give their children an exceptional education, there’s no better way than ESL boarding schools in Canada.

TIP: ESL teachers with public school teaching qualifications and experience are on hand at many camps and provide dedicated instruction that will help to extend their English learning throughout the summer months into the new school year. Some camps also combine ESL with a TOEFL.
