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 summer camp teaches international students and other 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.
Some key features of ESL overnight camps:
• Time in English language training every week
• Full participation by all students

Classroom instruction emphasizes communicative English as well as written English. Campers are trained in listening, speaking, writing, reading, conversation and grammar each day.

Swimming, skiing, wakeboarding, river canoeing, kayaking, banana boat, overnight camping, archery, rock climbing, horseback riding and sightseeing are some exciting activities taught at some ESL overnight camps.
