The Ottawa Catholic School Board (OCSB) offers International Languages (IL) summer elementary programs each year
in Kanata and various other locations in Ottawa. Chinese Mandarin program is one of the most popular programs along with other languages,
e.g., Farsi, Russian, Spanish, etc. Details are available at OCSB website.
As part of the OCSB's effort to enhance the language
programs that are in the mornings, an afternoon summer camp is offered by KC Afterschool at the Kanata location. The afternoon camp immediately follows the
morning language classes. One of the most popular programs we offer is the Chinese Summer Camp along with other language camps, e.g.,
Russian. The afternoon camp provides opportunities for students to interact with others, make friends and enhance their Chinese (and
other) language skills through a wide variety of activities, e.g., crafts, drawing, dance, songs, chess, fun math, shows, seminars,
group games and indoor/outdoor recreational activities.
Optional lunch order is available. Lunch menu
and order instructions will be provided weekly about a week in advance.
Hundreds of children enjoyed
