Summer Camp Canada

Summer Camp Canada

USIT’s Summer Camp Canada programme allows young adults (18-33 years) the chance to travel to Canada to work at the best residential summer camps in the country for 8-10 weeks. This is the only way to spend your summer working in Canada and does not affect your chances of getting a 2 year IEC visa.
