Our mission is to provide rich and engaging experiential French programs that support bilingualism for the next generation of Canadians. Whether your child is Francophone, in French Immersion, or has no French experience, we have a program suitable for them.
Children who attend our camps, go away on our trips, or join our year-round academic programs will see their French learning journey impacted positively. Their vocabulary will be enriched, their conversation will be more spontaneous and their French speaking skills will be improved. They will gain confidence while having a blast in French!!

He has made many new friends and looks forward to the group getting together year after year. He loves the water activities, each year is something new and different and for me….he has a great opportunity to practice his French before the school season resumes again. Staff are wonderful, very professional and lots of fun!!” Jennifer
