Summer & Winter

Group Programs

My Canadian Summer

Go camping under the stars. Wake up to sunrise on a beautiful lake. Raft the highest tides in the world. Hike to the most incredible scenery on Canada’s Atlantic coast.  Canoes, kayaks, campfires, friendships, food and FUN.  This is My East Coast Summer.  When are YOU coming?

Winter Wonderland

Experience winter like a Canadian!  Ski and snowboard on our nearby slopes. Try traditional Canadian activities like curling, snowshoeing, sledding and visiting a Maple Syrup farm. Skating on our outdoor rink, cheering at a professional hockey game, and maybe even build your first snowman!  Join ECLC for this magical winter experience.  Yes, Canada is cold in the winter, but Halifax has some of the warmest winter weather!  When are YOU coming?

ECLC runs a four-week summer program every July.  Students can join this group for all or part of the program or we can welcome groups at other times in June and August, depending on availability.  Program details can be found here:
