About

Wynchemna is a ESL summer adventure camp

Have you ever dreamed of visiting Canada’s beautiful Rocky Mountains? How about making friends from around the world? Do you have the travel bug? How about experiencing an unforgettable summer of fun and adventure, all while learning English!

Wynchemna is an English Language school or ESL (English as a second language) school in Vancouver and Calgary, Canada that combines learning with outdoor adventure for students around the world aged 10 – 23. Students learn English quickly through a combination of classroom study and exciting activities like kayaking, whale watching and camping.

Students attend morning lessons in either French or English with a certified English or French language teacher. Class sizes are small, averaging one teacher per six students. Afternoons and evenings are spent enjoying a wide range of recreational activities such as canoeing, kayaking, rock climbing, ice skating, roller skating, learning to cook international cuisines, and more! Students can also spend a week camping in the Rocky Mountain National Parks where they have the chance to hike up a mountain, swim in a natural hot spring, walk on a glacier, go horseback riding, gaze at the Northern Lights and maybe even photograph an occasional bear! Courses start in June 2013 and run between two and five weeks. Get in touch with us now to hold your spot at Wynchemna!

In 1995, Wynchemna ran its first summer program. Twenty-five students from Germany came to Canada to experience Wynchemna’s first-ever summer camp. Since then, thousands of students, ages 10 – 23, have traveled from across Canada and from around the world to participate in Wynchemna ESL summer courses, in both Calgary and Vancouver.
