Program Description

Summer camp - Canada Platinum

Columbia International College

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 six-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.

Never a dull moment
