Application Deadlines

We don't have application deadlines. However, all enrollments are subject to space availability. We recommend to reserve your place as far in advance as possible. Please note that the camp capacity is only 60 students and many parents and group leaders are "Early Birds" and make their decision 6 to 8 months in advance.

How to apply?

We encourage you to apply online, but you may also print out a printable Application Form from your browser and send it by mail or Fax. Please note that you may apply online only if you pay enrollment fees and deposits online by credit card.

Please send us the folowing:

  1. Completed application (printed or online).

  2. A non-refundable application fee of US $100.00 and a Tuition Deposit of US $500.00. The Tuition Deposit is part of the cost of your course and is deducted from the total tuition fees after conversion in Canadian Dollars. Please note that your application will be considered only when your payment of the application fee and the tuition deposit has been received.

  3. Other forms may be required upon registration, i.e. Supervision of Students Form, Parent Consent Form; Declaration Regarding Suitability to Work with Children (for group leaders).

Upon receiving your application, application fee and deposit, we will send you a registration confirmation and invoice.

The payment of the balance of fees is due upon receipt of invoice. Your place will be confirmed only when the full payment has been received. The full payment must be paid before we can issue documentation in support of a visa application.

You may pay by wire transfer, check or money order, or by credit card. We accept Visa and Mastercard. You will find payment details on the printable monospaced or online secure Application forms.

Visas, Permission to Travel, and other travel documents

A student visa is not required for Summer Camp. Your child can travel on a tourist visa or a Visa Waiver program.

It is the responsibility of the student's parents/guardians to contact their local embassy (or other appropriate office) in good time in order to obtain any visas/entry documents required for visiting Canada. In cases where a visa is refused, please send us a copy of the visa refusal letter from the Embassy or Consulate. Our normal cancellation charges apply if notification of a failed visa application is received less than 40 days before the course begins. If the visa refusal letter is received more than 40 days before the course begins, a full refund will be given less non-refundable application fee, tuition deposit and bank and payment processing charges, if any.

Please be aware of your country's requirements on the laws regarding unaccompanied children travelling abroad. A consent document or letter may have to be produced upon departure to prove that the child has the permission of the parents or guardian to travel.

To ensure that individual junior students travelling alone, and small groups of juniors travelling without a group leader, are not held up at the Immigration, we will issue a letter of confirmation to be shown upon arrival.

Other Terms and Conditions.

Changes to enrollments

We reserve the right to charge an administration fee of $100 each time course details are changed after documentation has been issued and sent with confirmation. This charge will not apply to extended courses.

Medical facilities

Students taking any medicines should give their medicines to our staff as soon as they arrive on the campus. Clear written instructions (in English) on how the medicines should be administered must be obtained from the student's parent(s)/guardian(s) and given to our staff as well. Students should also inform us of any allergies they may suffer from.

If students feel ill during their course they should tell a member of staff immediately. We will then be able to provide any assistance that may be required.


Every student must have a comprehensive insurance package before leaving home. This should cover loss and/or damage to personal belongings, medical expenses in the event that the student is ill, and course fees in the event of an unexpected cancellation or curtailment of the student's course.

We accept no liability for the loss of, or damage to, any person's property while on the summer school premises, or while engaged in leisure activities outside the campus.

Group Leader responsibilities

Group leaders are responsible for coordinating the requirements of the students in their group. They should liaise regularly with our staff to ensure the smooth running of the program. Regular meetings are arranged between the school management and group leaders (normally at least twice a week) and group leaders are required to attend these meetings. Group leaders can only be responsible for students within their group.

Group leaders are responsible for the conduct of members of their group and maintaining discipline. It is important that group leaders ensure that their students arrive on time for scheduled activities and excursions in the interest of all students on the course.

All group leaders will be asked to sign a form stating that they are a fit and proper person to be allowed unrestricted access to under 16s.

We will also issue all group leaders with clear guidelines of what they can expect from us and what the school can expect from them. Both a member of the staff and the group leader must sign this form.

Cancellation before arrival

You must inform the office in writing. Cancellation fees are charged as follows, and any balance is refunded less any bank charges and non-refundable items:

  • Cancellation received more than 40 days before the course begins: cancellation fee in the amount of the tuition deposit.
  • Cancellation received 40 to 28 days before the course begins: cancellation fee in the amount of the tuition deposit plus 20% of the program fee.
  • Cancellation received less than 28 days before the course begins: cancellation fee in the amount of the full program fee (including any deposit).

All refunds are made no later than 30 days after the denial letter (or a cancellation notice - in case a visa was not required to visit Canada) has been received by IPSA.

Cancellation after arrival

In no case money will be refunded once the course and/or lodging has started. Deposits and fees are not transferable from person to person. Students are advised to take out cancellation insurance with their local provider in case they need to cancel their courses within 40 days of the start date, or while they are on the course.

Our camp is a Summer School which contracts the University of British Columbia for the use of its facilities, but which otherwise has no other connection or association with the university.
