This four-week ESL camp program features an exciting blend of nature and culture, where half-day and full-day ESL classes are balanced with overnight trips to famous tourist destinations, day excursions to Hamilton landmarks, fun evening activities, and the love of our caring and fun-loving camp counsellors.

Platinum camp is special because of our popular overnight excursions, which offer campers a chance to immerse themselves in some of the country’s most cosmopolitan cities and develop their leadership skills in the Canadian wilderness.

A four-day tour of Eastern Canada features the cultural and architectural majesty of Montreal and Quebec City (where campers can try speaking French); the rich history of Ottawa, the nation’s capital; and the beautiful 1000 Islands area of eastern Lake Ontario. A four-day trip to Bark Lake connects campers to the outdoors, where they canoe, swim, climb, hike and develop lifelong friendships around the campfire. In Week 4, campers head to Niagara Falls for an overnight at this stunning UNESCO World Heritage Site with a three-day trip to Toronto, where campers will have fun with science, zoom up to the top of the CN Tower, experience history at the Royal Ontario Museum, and visit with penguins, polar bears, and panda’s at the Toronto Zoo.

Canada Platinum price: $5,329 CAD (subject to change)
