Chinese Summer Camp
The Ottawa Catholic School Board (OCSB) offers an International & Indigenous Languages - Elementary (IILE) summer program in Kanata each year. One of the most popular languages offered is Chinese (Mandarin). All students of JK to Grade 8 from any school board are welcome. The morning language program is FREE for Ontario residents. Details are available at OCSB website.

To enhance the IILE Program, a Chinese Afternoon Camp is offered right after the morning language classes. The afternoon camp is operated by KC Afterschool in collaboration with the OCSB. The camp program is designed for students to have a fun and educational summer. It provides opportunities for students to interact with others, make friends and enhance their Chinese language skills. The afternoon camp has a wide variety of activities, e.g., crafts, drawing, dance, songs, chess, fun Chinese, fun math, group projects, entertainment shows, games, indoor/outdoor recreational activities.

Optional lunch order is available. Lunch menus and order instructions are provided weekly during the summer camp.
