Change the way you look at the world… and yourself

Columbia International College’s summer camps offer exciting opportunities for youth from all over the world to practice English through hands-on activities and trips to the most popular attractions in Canada.

Each camp offers 15 to 30 hours of interactive ESL classes a week that increase proficiency in reading, writing, speaking and listening. Small classes of 15 to 20 students are taught by certified teachers and geared to all English levels from beginner to advanced. But don’t worry. At our summer camps, the learning also goes well beyond the classroom. From the lively multiculturalism of world-class cities like Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal to the breathtaking natural beauty of Bark Lake, our campers have a Total Learning experience that leaves them with wonderful memories and international friendships they will treasure for a lifetime.

Our highly trained, energetic and talented staff—our “Green Team”—are caring, responsible and positive role models that create an atmosphere of safety and fun. Campers receive individual attention and are encouraged to challenge themselves with every new activity. And the food is delicious, with all-you-can-eat options for dinners and brunches.

Sign up for a Columbia College summer camp. You’re in for the adventure of a lifetime.
