CAP Toronto in 2016!

The Children’s Adventure Program in 2016 will relocate to St. Michael’s campus at the University of Toronto. This is due to some renovations happening at Victoria Campus at the University of Toronto.

St. Michael’s is a beautiful and large campus that we have used to host our Teenage Adventure Program for the past 8 years. It will be a wonderful summer with both the TAP and CAP programs being so close to one another.

We are excited for summer 2016 and look forward to welcoming and caring for the children with the same passion and dedication that has made us one of the leading language camps in North America!
