Our French virtual camps will come to your house via the well-known Zoom platform. By now most children have grown accustomed to connecting virtually with their schools or our own programming. “Zooming” has become a verb! Our team has invested time and effort into becoming well acquainted with this platform and we are ready to take on the virtual world!
- A desktop, a laptop, or a tablet. As a last resort, a phone would do. Your device should be up to-date with the operating system and have an updated browser as well.
- You should have a good internet connection which allows you to reliably have video-conferencing.
- A quiet area where there isn’t too much background noise or distractions for your child.
- We would love to get them moving, so a bit of physical space around them is great! We will let you know in advance when their Get Moving module is held.
- They will be encouraged to participate in a craft module. Again we will let you know in advance when and what is needed for that. Don’t worry, we have lots of options for substitutions!
We have premium access to Zoom’s tools and security features, and have a direct line to Zoom via our account manager. We stay on top of any new releases and have investigated all safety features and measures to be taken. Your child will join us via their Zoom meeting ID, protected by a password. They will be admitted to the classroom via our waiting room and identified by our Campus Lead as soon as they enter. Users trying to enter who are not registered will be disconnected. Our meeting will be locked as soon as the day begins ensuring that uninvited users cannot join in. We disable private chat to ensure campers do not have an opportunity to bully or share content.
Children are grouped by age. The “bunk leader” follows your child during the programming and will drop in as needed. They are their go-to during the day.
After starting off with an exciting and engaging team rally cry, or “cri de ralliement”, children will go through three modules of programming each half-day, with bathroom and snack breaks spread throughout. (Please note we do not provide snacks.)
We are proud to have a team of highly qualified specialists delivering our specialized virtual French camp curriculum. Our instructors are fun, energetic and love FRENCH! Their mission is to make sure your child is engaged, laughing, and learning all at the same time.
- There will be a dedicated “bunk leader” that either stays with your child during the whole program or drops in during specialty programs.
- A responsible ‘Campus Lead’ will be present to coordinate all the camper groups.
- We have tech support on hand to ensure our platform and connection are secured and you receive the support you need.
- Our office staff will be working behind the scenes should you have any questions about your registration, scheduling and more.
Yes! Many of our campers return week after week. We change the theme and content each week to prevent too much repetition.
Unfortunately, we do not offer trial classes and there can be no refund or changes after the first day.
- There will be an administration fee of $20.00 (plus HST) PER week per camper withheld on all refunds.
- Refunds for the registration fees are ONLY issued for cancellations submitted 30 days prior to the beginning of camp. Any client-requested cancellations less than 30 days before the start of camp will unfortunately not be eligible for refunds.
Change of week or programs:
- Up to 30 days before the first day of camp, you may switch the week you are registered for at no charge, as long as there is space in the program.
- ONLY one free “week-switch” will be offered.
- Any subsequent requests for a change will incur a $10 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.
