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, your child will learn songs, listen to stories, play language games, role play, use French computer software, draw, play with puppets and complete fun activities that will increase his/her understanding and vocabulary in French.

Group Activities
In the afternoon, your child will cook, prepare shows, do arts and crafts, make videos and go outside for sports and games, all in French to reinforce his/her communication skills.

Field Trip
Every Wednesday, campers will go on a field trip to a venue 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.
