This jam-packed three-week summer camp offers the chance of a lifetime—a four-day tour of English and French Canada. Campers will explore Ottawa, the nation’s capital; take a boat ride to the 1000 Islands at the eastern end of Lake Ontario; tour and shop in Montréal, one of the world’s fashion meccas; and travel back in time in la Ville de Québec, Canada’s oldest city.

Urban experiences are balanced by a three-day trip to the wilds of northern Ontario at Columbia’s Bark Lake leadership camp, where campers are encouraged to leave their comfort zone through activities that challenge both the body and mind. Add ESL classes, local day trips to tourist attractions, visits to nearby universities and fun evening activities and you have the makings of the most memorable summer of your life.

Canada Gold price: $4,430 CAD (subject to change)
