The Education Academy is a non-profit organization that was founded in 2008 by a parent council to engage children in language education and character development. The camp incorporates education within their camp. The camp offers sports, arts, and crafts as well as weekly field trips. The camp also offers daily French lessons to improve and strengthen their oral and written skills. The camp makes learning a new language fun and easy!

  1. ?I am in awe of all the magic that is happening across the city this summer.

    Thank you for sharing some of it.

    All the best, take care and have a wonderful day!

  2. This camp is really amazing and I really like because you always make sure kids have fun and make sure to have a positive fun.

  3. My experience at St.Aidan with The Education Academy was a life-changing one. Being a camp counselor helped me grow as a person. I improved on my leadership skills, and even improved my self-esteem. Working with both the younger ones (jk – grade 3) and the older ones (grade 4 – grade 9) really made me look back on who I used to be when I was their age, and how much I’ve grown since then. Making the children laugh and smile was such a blessing, and I hope that I was able to make their summer one to remember. As well, my FOY coworkers were so kind and friendly, and I felt so lucky to have befriended them and worked with them.

    This program has given me a lot in terms of happiness and self-improvement. I’m so thankful to be part of this year’s Focus on Youth!

  4. My experience with Focus On Youth has been amazing. At the Education Academy I have learned to improve on myself. I feel I have become more confident and learned a variety of skills. I enjoyed the different activities we did. For example, each week had a theme. I am grateful that I was placed at St.Aidan. I also enjoyed learning french.

  5. French Camp at Finch was fun! One of the best, probably.The kids are all nice and helpful, so the environment is really fun and educational at the same time.

    All I can say is this camp gave me a great experience and opportunity to show my skills as a counsellor and as a student.
