A fun-filled Canadian environment with campers from around the world!
Summer of adventures
At Stanstead College, our summer campers learn English, French or Spanish through a unique immersion program that includes classroom learning plus outdoor and cultural excursions and other on-campus activities.
Boys and girls ages 11 to 17 meet in groups of 9 to 15 to receive instruction at three levels: beginner, intermediate and advanced. Classroom instruction focuses on speaking, listening, reading and writing exercises. Participants become more confident in their second (or third) language by improving comprehension and developing their spoken vocabulary and grammar. Students are motivated to speak their language of study at all times in the class and while at play in order to get the most out of their camp and learning experience. At the end of camp, advanced-level students will undergo TOEFL Junior testing.
Learn English, French, or Spanish! Live a language immersion and develop lifelong skills and friendships.
Cultural and Recreational Activities
Learning a second language has never been so much fun! To provide students with a chance to discover Quebec’s diverse culture and amazing nature, our Language Adventure immersion program organizes several outdoor and cultural activities throughout the duration of the camp in order to get the most out of their camp and learning experience.
• Museums • Natural parks • Sightseeing • Camping • Day at the beach • Arts & crafts • Teams & sports • Shopping • Bonfires • Amusement Parks • And more!
When we announced our 2021 edition of the Stanstead College Language Adventure, we anticipated that the global COVID-19 situation would have improved by now. While there are signs of recovery, Canada, Quebec and our region are all still living under major restrictions. For example
The Canadian government is not issuing tourist visas or ETAs nor is there any indication when they will begin doing so.
A mandatory 14-day quarantine period remains in force for anyone entering Canada.
Activities and off-campus excursions would likely need to be cancelled or altered to adhere to government regulations and to maintain the safety of the students.
Given these restrictions and the anticipated timeline, it is with regret that we have decided to cancel this year’s Language Adventure. We will now work towards making the 2022 edition a vibrant, memorable experience.
The Stanstead College Language Adventure Summer Camp has organized a Monitor-in-Training Program since 2003. MITs are students who are given an elevated level of responsibility as well as an extra set of privileges. We encourage former Language Adventure students who wish to pursue a future summer job opportunity to send their résumés to:

"I cannot thank the Language Adventure enough for the great time my daughter Sophia had during the last summer camp. In my daughter’s words, ‘It’s a place that you would come back to without hesitation.’ Wonderful work! Keep it up! Saludos!"

"Philip and Alexander have been going to the Summer Camp for three years. They enjoy the opportunity to meet new friends, the special bond that forms from competing in the games and sports and especially the camping and outings. Oh yes, they also don’t mind learning more French. Last year, two cousins from Vancouver joined them and all had a blast. If the boys are telling and getting their cousins to join, we know that they are very positive about the experience. As parents, we see the camp as a fun place where the staff know how to motivate the kids and combine fun and learning in a safe and friendly environment."
