Have you heard of Wynchemna summer camps? These camps allow kids and youth to dive deep into learning French or Chinese, meet kids from around the world, and enjoy the beauty of Canada in the summer. With serious learning mixed with incredible fun, kids from all over the world come to Wynchemna summer camps, giving Calgary kids a cosmopolitan adventure, and a chance to learn French or Chinese, without leaving their home country.

What is Wynchemna?

Wynchemna is a language course that takes language learning from the classroom to the world around us. Besides classes, kids enjoy amazing activities in the Calgary area and the Rocky Mountains. Calgary kids are familiar with the mountains but might see them through the new eyes of kids from other parts of the world. Wynchemna summer camps in Calgary offer French and Chinese classes and your kids will have lots to tell you when they get home!

How Does it Work?

Camps are 3 or 4 weeks long. There are 4 hours of formal French or Chinese lessons in the mornings, 7 days a week, while they are in Calgary. In the afternoons and evenings, the teachers and students have fun enjoying a host of different recreational activities around the city. Kids will enjoy beach volleyball, canoeing and kayaking, skating, rock climbing, movies, and much more.

After all that hard work, the highlight of the program is the beloved one-week camping trip through the mountains. It’s a time to enjoy the beauty of nature, photograph wildlife, and have fun with your friends. Because the time in Calgary has lessons 7 days a week, there are no formal language classes during the camping week.

What Else?

Wynchemna offers a Junior Course for kids ages 9 – 14 and a Senior Course for teens and young adults ages 15 and up. The classes are very small, with 1 teacher for every 9 students. While in Calgary, students stay in the student residences of SAIT. There are 2 students per bedroom and 8 international students in an apartment. (In the apartments, there is a living room and kitchen. The students can use the kitchen if they get hungry in the evening.)
