The Camp fees include all weekday English classes, transportation to and from the Halifax International Airport, accommodations and meals, medical insurance, evening and weekend activities, transportation to and from UCCB, 24-hour care.

Students will split their time between Halifax and Sydney.

Both universities offer clean, comfortable, and secure residences with three quality meals per day. Male or female chaperones will stay with the students. Boys and girls will be in separate areas of the building. Accommodations are included from the Sunday before the start date to the Saturday after the last day of classes. Extra days can be booked if desired.
