Welcome to Polyglots Summer Camps
We have summer camps in-person and online. Our in-person camp locations are in Calgary’s Dalhousie, Edgemont, and Killarney communities.
The word polyglot means a person who is able to use several languages. Here at Polyglots, our goal is to teach kids languages outside of the rigors of academic curriculum. Instead, we use a natural approach through fun activities like songs, stories, games, drama, science experiments and play. Children have so much fun that they don’t even realize they are learning a new language!
Currently here at Polyglots, we are teaching French and Spanish with teachers who are fluent in the language.

- Children in the age range 5- 11 years.

- Children who have enrolled in French Immersion or Spanish Bilingual program and are eager to start learning.
