The Toronto English Camps are vibrant and exciting! They are designed for young people who are interested in learning English by being immersed in an English-speaking environment. A variety of excursions, daily classes, sporting activities and a fully organized on-camp programme keep the students occupied and learning at all times.
Toronto English Camps offer residential and day programme options.
There are 3 separate Toronto English Camps. They are:
Junior Camp – 7 to 10 years old
Intermediate Camp – 11 to 13 years old
Senior Camp – 14 to 17 years old
Each camp is specifically designed to meet the needs of the particular age group. Thus, there are some activities and excursions that are unique to each camp.
Once per week, the camps have “integration periods” where all three groups come together for special excursions and/or leadership building activities.
All 3 camps offer the following:
Full English immersion
Camper focused English classes
Exciting camp activities
All inclusive fees
The Toronto English Camps are located in the centre of the city, on the historic Victoria University Campus at the University of Toronto.
