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!

PODERE AIONE 8-14 YEARS OLD

Podere l’Aione is a small oasis in Maremma where wild boar and roe deer wander. Just a few kilometers from Scansano, Podere l'Aione was originally an ancient settlement which derives its name from a road that connects the hills of Scansano to the coast. The farm’s surroundings offer opportunities for walking, cycling and hiking in the woods where you can distract yourself looking for mushrooms, asparagus, chestnuts and other fruits of the earth. On hot summer days, the pool is the perfect place to cool off and spend time with new friends.

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.
