Summer Programmes

Summer camps - English (ESL) / French (FSL) study in Canada

CISS gives students from around the world the opportunity to come together in traditional summer camps, English (ESL) or French (FLS Camps) as well as adventure experiences of their choices. We have been making great memories longer than any other Summer Camp Programme or ESL summer programme provider in Canada. With a focus on fun and unique opportunities to learn, our Summer Camp as well as City Residential programmes give you the experience—and the Canadian memories—of a lifetime.

International Summer Camps

Don’t see the Canadian wild. Live the Canadian wild. The smell of wood smoke hangs heavy in the air, reminding you of the previous night’s campfire. The final drops of the midnight rain fall from the branches around your cabin. The reflection of the morning sun bouncing off the water’s surface serves as your wake-up call. Paddles pull through the lake’s calm waters, playing fields are prepared, and a breakfast bell tells you a new day and a new adventure has begun. 

Welcome to the experience of a lifetime. Welcome to Summer Camps in Canada!
