Hey, i have been selected for a youth exchange program to be held in July and need to choose one out of the following 2 camps -

1. Near Toronto, Canada

2. Virginia, USA

Camp - 12 days Family Hosting - 14 days                          Camp Participants - 20 girls and 10 guys

Fee - 500 $

Activities - Educational and recreational camp activities. Sightseeing trip through Virginia and Washington D.C. ,Tubing on Shenandoah  River,  Fishing in the Chesapeake Bay. Major league baseball game in Washington or Baltimore. Mall shopping. Parade of Nations and international night Visit to Jamestown (1st English Settlement in N. America),Ropes Course & Pool Party,Virginia Aquarium, Busch Gardens Amusement Park, Trips to Atlantic Ocean beaches,Sunset Cruise on Sailing Ship in Hampton Roads

I have no experience of North America and wanna know which camp would you suggest to be better and more fun particularly keeping in mind the locations? Also a major part is the host family stay so the location plays an important role because more places can be explored with the family in the nearby areas even if the camp has fewer activities.

Thanks in advance for the suggestions

Hi Anmol, I would choose the one near Toronto. The activities are very interesting for a girl of your age. Toronto is a big city, so there are a lot more things that are not mention on the offer that you will have access to. The price is also very good. Canadian are very welcoming and friendly they will do everything to make your stay a fun and memorable experience. Hope that helps.

I'd say the one near Toronto, for all the reasons that Lissa said. Also the group is smaller, with an equal number of boys and girls. Besides the price being lower, the Canadian dollar is quite a bit weaker than the US dollar so you'll spend less on your personal purchases.
