Unique to Camp Tournesol, this is a short “away from home” trip that gives campers a taste of adventure and independence… all in French.
French immersion or Francophone students in grades 2 to 7 are all welcome.
This shortened French immersion program is perfect for students who like discovering new places and making new friends, but are not yet ready for the full overnight experience.

We offer this program twice in the summer:
The partial week formula is unique to Camp Tournesol. Unlike most French camps, we allow campers to come for two days to one of our day French campuses to get comfortable with the staff and the other campers. Our Tournesol buses then visit each French campus on Wednesday to pick up the campers and bring them to our destinations.
For all of our partial week trips, round-trip transportation to the overnight destination is included in the fee.
Please note that there must be 4 campers at a day campus to allow pick up.
During these trips, all meals and activities are included, both at the day camp (provided by our caterer – check out the menu here) and at the destination.
There is a maximum of 45 campers on each trip and a minimum of 20 is required.

“That was awesome. I give that camp 10 stars out of 10 stars. It was fun hanging out with people that aren’t related to you. Can I go again next year? The food was pretty good as well.”
“The staff at camp Tournesol (counsellors and admin staff) are fantastic – helpful and friendly. I felt my son was in good hands for his first overnight trip.”
“The Cedar Glen trip was my daughters first experience away from home and at a french speaking camp. The Councillors were great and she loved all of the activities that were offered during her stay. It was a great learning experience for her and she was so exhausted by the end of each day that she didn’t even miss technology.”
