Sleepaway Camp

- For ages 8 to 14 years old -

Summer Camp in Tuscany

Canadian Island’s overnight summer camps provided in English 24 hours a day. Campers, aged 8 to 14 years old, develop new skills while growing and experiencing unforgettable emotions in Toscany’s timeless and natural landscape. At Canadian Island, our campers are in a friendly and safe environment where they are free to express themselves and to be active. At the end of camp they usually say goodbye with a heartfelt hug and are sorry that the adventure is over. Our consolation is that often this is not a farewell but a “see you next year!”.

For a summer that will change your life!

Three farms, one method. Choose the location that best suits your needs, we’ll take care of the rest!

Agriturismo La Torre 8-14 years old

La Torre is 200 metres above sea-level and is situated atop a valley formed by the confluence of the Lima stream and the Serchio river. The farmhouses were built in 1609 and later became associated with Bologna University. Abandoned in the early 90’s, La Torre was bought and restored to its ancient splendour. Surrounded by Olive and Chestnut trees, the agriturismo offers rustic apartments with scenic views while the restaurant serves local foods and a typical Tuscan menu.
