(English) Virtual camps were offered from March 16th until April 3rd by our amazing Camp T staff. Children from all over Canada joined in and practiced their French with our engaging and language-rich one-hour programs.
Beginning April 6th, Virtual French Classes are offered by our sister company, the Brouillet Academy, to replace these Virtual Camps. Class content has been developed by our curriculum team to ensure the academic content is aligned with the learning needs of French immersion students of all ages.
To peruse the various focused and academic classes available to ensure your child’s French skills do not fall behind, click here to access the webpage.
Meanwhile, our CampT team will continue to offer FUN “French Hours” focused on various games and activities to build spontaneous conversation skills, continuing our summer camp mission and focus, at an affordable fee.
Our team has developed 4 great options for children who are staying home and are looking for engaging and language-rich French activities with others!
These programs will be available as long as the school closure lasts.
(English) In response to federal government recommendations that families should avoid crowds wherever possible, we recognize that parents may prefer activities they can do within their own homes. But because they can’t be as social as usual, children may feel isolated, yearning for interaction with their peers. While we can not offer face-to-face programs, we can invite them into our virtual platform of learning and fun!
The children will be reading, writing, laughing, playing, speaking and interacting every day!
(English) Who: French immersion or francophone children in JK and SK
This program cycles through a book, a song, and a game twice to three times a session as your child interacts with other campers their age in French! Our fully bilingual staff will guide campers and encourage them to use their French language skills out loud and acquire new vocabulary. All material has been specially hand-selected for this age group and matches their cognitive abilities as well as French proficiency. You are welcome to join with your child in the “mom and tot” style or leave them in our capable hands! It is sure to be a fun time for all.
« Busy referring a few more people to you! Day three and feedback is still great. Lauren is very engaged and the small group makes such a difference with more one on one learning and focus. She is online with Christine and her class currently for the book club and Christine is wonderful. »
