PROGRAMS

We’re proud to offer a variety of activities and programs that engage learners at every age. We focus on cultures in a way that brings them to life.

Cultures of Focus

Each week campers will embark on a cultural journey that includes the exploration of nature, music, foreign languages, sports, dramatic play, art, exercise, science, math, history, literature and field trips. This year’s weekly themes and cultures of focus are Canada’s Captivating Coast, Uganda’s Unique Unity, Trinidad & Tobago’s Tremendous Triumph, and Indonesia’s Illustrious Islands. Sub-themes are incorporated daily to facilitate a fun and stimulating camp experience.

All of our activities and cultural lessons are tailored to meet the needs of each age group to ensure age appropriateness. Click Weekly Overviews to view examples of past activities for each age group.
