NEW FOR FALL 2020
We will be there to support your children through these uncertain times. Whether you are choosing to send your child to school, or homeschool them, we have programs to support their French learning!
Choose between our weekly French group classes targeting each specific grade level from beginner to advanced French immersion, or one-on-one tutoring customized to your needs, or make your own group class for your “pod” and choose your time slot during the day as well as the frequency.
Our mission is to provide rich and engaging experiential French programs, both in-person and virtual, 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, take our virtual camps and classes, or join our year-round academic programs will see their French learning journey impacted in a positive and significant way.

“My son has been attending Camp Tournesol for many years now. First the day camps now the overnight camps and he absolutely loves it. 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
