The English Winter Camp Program is designed to seize the potential of International students between the age of 10 and 20 and develop their English proficiency.
This program strives for excellence in providing a learning environment that emphasizes academic development and individual growth. Students are not limited to practicing English during class time, but also during field trips that allow them to experience Canadian culture.
The program focuses on three key elements. Firstly, students are able to learn and understand North American English through communicative activities such as watching videos, reading and talking about news, and partaking in classroom debates. The program enables students to learn English through formal in-class teaching as well as from well planned activities.
Secondly, in a diversified learning environment, students are able to improve their cross-cultural communication skills within the multicultural mosaic of Canada.
Lastly, this international experience will broaden student’s global vision and allow them to make friends with people from all over the world. International experience is a must in today’s globalized environment.
Students are taken to various field trips to sight see and interact with others.
English Summer Camp is held in July and August every year. Students can choose the program for three weeks or more (at most six weeks).
Students who attend our camp will return home with unforgettable memories and friendships with students from around the world.

I joined the winter camp at William Academy, I have never seen, tried and experience so many things even in my imagination, there is so much to do and to discover, It was the first time I saw snow, I went skiing and I rode a snowmobile. A special highlight was the skiing at Blue Mountain. The feeling to stand on the mountain and to look down at the white land is just awesome… Annie from Korea
