HOW?

Children will learn French, immersed in a French-speaking environment, through games and fun activities. They will learn the same way they develop skills in their native language: by listening, watching, singing, playing, and expressing themselves.

WHAT ACTIVITIES?

Language Activities
In the morning, and depending on his/her age, your child will learn songs, listen to stories, play language games, role play, swim, draw, play with puppets and complete other fun activities (including an overnight for campers aged 10 and up) that will increase his/her understanding of the French language and familiarity with the French culture.

Group Activities
In the afternoon, your child will cook, prepare shows, do arts, make crafts, conduct experiments, play with robots, read and discover new books and magazines, make videos and go outside for sports and games, all in French to reinforce his/her communication skills.

Special Wednesday Activities
Every Wednesday, campers will get to enjoy a special activity (circus school, planetarium, science show, exotic animals zoo, cooking lessons with a chef, olympic games, etc.) related to the theme of the week.

French Show
Every Friday, parents are invited to come to camp and see what the children have accomplished during the week.
