We offer different French camp programs for children aged 4-5 years old to prepare them to enter a French program or to reinforce previously acquired French verbal skills.
Vocabulary is formally taught and reinforced throughout the day with activities such as sports, arts and crafts, book club, cooperation games, and songs.
All activities are varied and appropriate to each program/age group, and no two weeks are the same!
In 2020, our camp season will run from July 6th until August 28th, varying by campus.
Campers in this program will be introduced to basic French skills they will need in September to succeed starting the very first day of French immersion.
We begin the day with a 30 minute circle time where new vocabulary will be introduced and practiced. This learning is then reinforced throughout the day with:
The workbook also includes the words to the songs that they will learn and will be sent home with the campers at the end of the French camp. They will be able to continue “working” in their workbook for the rest of the summer to reinforce their learning.
The ratio in this program is 8 campers to 1 counsellor.
No French experience required.
All sessions cover different curriculum and therefore a French summer camper can attend all weeks offered.
This fun-filled day will feature the best of Camp Tournesol, including active games and keeping cool either in the pool or with water games!
