Educational Virtual Camps for Kids This Summer

Classes and ProgramsEducationCamps
Online Services

Kids have a great opportunity this summer to take part in camps that may not have worked for them, location-wise, without the option of virtual participation. With educational camps, children can learn a new language, improve their word power, or travel around the world in the next couple of months. What a great (and fun!) way to prepare for school in Fall after this truncated school year.

All fees are in Canadian dollars unless noted otherwise.
