In suburban Mississauga in 2001, we launched our first program: Camp Tournesol’s French day camps. Our unique brand of fun and hands-on French summer day camps have become our flagship experiential learning programs, welcoming thousands of campers each summer throughout the GTA. We offer French day camp programs for all levels of French to campers aged 4 to 14 years old.

In 2007, our French overnight camps joined our French day camp programming and we began welcoming an enthusiastic cohort of French campers looking for a more immersive experience. All programs are offered within 2 hours of the GTA and allow children to discover the great outdoors while speaking French all day…the next best thing to spending a week in Quebec’s countryside!
These camps are exclusive to students age 8 to 14 already fluent in French (French immersion, French schools or native speakers) and are staffed with mostly native speakers from Northern Ontario, Quebec, and France. A full-French environment is maintained 24/7 throughout the entirety of the trip, fully immersing campers and strongly enriching their French skills, all while enjoying the adventure of French overnight camp!
