WHICH PROGRAM IS RIGHT FOR MY CHILD?

Below are the various programs we offer at our day camps. They are designed to suit the age and French level of the camper. Don’t worry; the correct program for your child will be automatically suggested for you during the registration process!

Our Camp Staff

A big part of the Camp Tournesol experience is the great teams we have at our day camps. We pride ourselves with the fact that our camp team is fun, experienced, passionate, and experts in French!

Our team is fully bilingual and/or Francophone. Your child will love creating memories to cherish forever with our team of dedicated and passionate French speaking staff! 

Before joining our day camps, our camp staff undergoes rigorous training. Their training process includes passing tests on multiple safety training modules, attending in-person full day training, multiple virtual training sessions, as well as on-site training prior to campus opening.  Our day camps staff is CPR certified. 

Each campus has their own Site Supervisor (who is 21 years or older), a Senior Instructor who is trained specially to head our kinder program, as well as several staff pursuing a career in Education.

Our staff is supported by our Senior Head Office Team, lead by our Camp Director (with over 10 years of experience) who visits each campus regularly.

We make sure to maintain a maximum of 8 campers per every 1 counselor.

We form camper groups according to age and French level so that your child feels comfortable around their peers. Our counselors monitor their groups closely and will inform the team leader if a camper is not thriving at the given level and should switch groups.

  • ONLY one free “week-switch” will be offered.
  • Any subsequent requests for a change will incur a $20 administration fee.
  • In cases where the “week-switch” involves the short week, where the fee of the new week is less than the original week, an administration fee of $10 plus HST will apply.

I am very happy that I registered my children for this camp. Not only did their French improve but they discovered that “learning French” can be fun. The highlight for me was my daughter awaking from a bad dream and asking in French if she could sleep in my room. That’s when I knew that I made the right decision sending them to Camp Tournesol. We will be returning every year!
“We are delighted to be part of camp tournesol for the second year and we can’t wait until summer vacation starts! My daughter’s French improved tremendously during her time at Camp Tournesol last year and her teachers noticed the improvement.”
“I want to express how happy I am with this camp. I was so nervous my kids wouldn’t like it because it was in French but it was actually the opposite. They didn’t give me a hard time about going every morning – which does not happen during the school year and the camp leaders were AMAZING.  My daughter absolutely fell in love with her counsellor’s gentle and warm manner. “
