Our Learn French programs are FUN, ENGAGING, and EFFECTIVE!
Perhaps your child:
Is your child currently in SK or grade 1? Join our Boute-en-train program!
Is your child currently in grades 2 to 4? Check out our “Practical French Essentials”!
Our unique brand of camps will enrich, reinforce, and expand your child’s French verbal skills, instilling confidence, spontaneity, and a love of learning French. Get them excited about being bilingual!
In 2020, our camp season will run from July 6th until august 28th, varying by campus.
These programs are specifically developed to prepare children to enter a French program in the fall or to improve already acquired French skills. New vocabulary is introduced during morning circle time, then reinforced all day long during various activities!
Each week we cover a different theme and build on specific vocabulary, sentences, and songs all related to that theme, so kids can participate for multiple weeks and take their language learning to the next level.
Thursdays are extra special! Campers pile into buses for the weekly outing to a splash pad! Travel time is the best time to learn new French tongue-twisters, riddles, and call-and-response songs! And Fridays feature a camp-wide festival: fun and face painting and freezees for everyone!!
The ratio in this program is 8 campers to 1 counselor. No French experience required!

Designed for children following Core French or Extended French academic programs during the school year, we focus on the acquisition of keywords and phrases through both direct and experiential instruction.
Children will strengthen their communicative competencies by participating in a variety of activities all designed to make learning fun! While engaging with and learning about their peers, creating dramatic skits and participating in good old-fashioned sports all in French, children will gain confidence in their verbal skills. Mentored by our supportive counselors, kids will gain a love of “la langue de Molière.” Each week of programming follows a different theme, with one week building onthe next, so kids can participate for multiple weeks and take their language learning to the next level.
The Practical French Essentials is a dynamic program led by our team of super counselors. Campers will start the day with theme-based language modules covering everything from getting to know you to sports, music, and clothes. Kids will practice newly acquired language skills throughout the day with a variety of engaging activities detailed in our Week-At-A-Glance.

“I am thrilled I sent my daughter to Camp Tournesol. As an English speaking family, my daughter has little chance to practice her French. This not only gave her an opportunity to speak French, but she also had an incredible time.“
“My daughter Annalise had a great time at the camp. She learnt French quickly and liked the camp a lot. She even sang the camp song at home. She said she wants to come back next year.”
