Our Camps are located in 3 different locations in Canada – Ontario, Toronto and Vancouver.

You will have time to go on camping trips, excursions to explore the nature or the city around.

 

Our accommodation is usually located on the campus grounds. Kids are placed in the shared rooms separated by gender, of a similar age and we try to make the mix international to create intercultural exchange.
