French Day Camps: Richmond Hill

We think our French summer day camps are pretty unique. They are designed to take advantage of the summer break to help your child:

  • Develop or strengthen their French language skills
  • Make new friends with similar interests
  • Work in their cognitive and non-cognitive skills
  • Develop their autonomy,persevrance and self confidence
  • Use their summer vacation for enrichment
  • Have fun!

Whether your child is Francophone, in French Immersion, or has no French experience, we have a day camp suitable for them! Check us out in action!

The hours for the French camp are 9:00AM to 4:00PM for all campuses. We accept campers at 8:45AM. Before and after care is offered at an additional cost. Children will be accepted at 7:30 AM and must be picked up at 6:00PM. Please note that the exact locations of our French Camps may change based on school availability and pending permit confirmation from the board in April. Most of our campuses are not air conditioned. Once a school is confirmed, it will be indicated as such in the Camp Weeks section below.
