If you’ve been looking for a fun and practical way to help your class accelerate their French language skills, celebrate the end of school year, or have one last hourrah before graduating and leaving the school – then our Overnight French School Trips In Ontario might be the answer you’ve been searching for.
We believe conversation and practical application are the keys to language success. That’s why we organize educational French School Tours for French Immersion and Francophone classrooms throughout Ontario. Our customized French School Trips give French-learning students the unique opportunity to have fun practicing French while also learning invaluable team building skills, leadership and enjoying active living. Depending on your strand of the curriculum, we can create activities tailored-fit for your classroom.
We offer school trips in May and June for a duration of 3 to 5 days.
Customized trips can be organized for a minimum of 20 students in grades 4 to 12 accompanied by school chaperones and Camp Tournesol counsellors.
These Ontario overnight experiences are offered at one of our partner camp hosts located in the breathtaking countryside of Schomberg, and at a pristine private lake in Muskoka. Take a look at our camp host in Bracebridge here.
All activities during our French School Trip will be entirely co-ordinated by Camp Tournesol’s experienced French-speaking counsellors who we have chosen year after year for their attention and dedication to our campers. From our 8 AM start time through to bedtime at 10 PM, our staff will be on duty. School chaperones are also asked to be onsite at all times to discipline students whenever needed.
Your students will live an unforgettable experience while developing themselves in so many levels via our varied and customized activities. The exact daily schedule is very flexible and can be modified and adapted to your needs. Click here to see what a sample schedule might look like for your group.
Campers will enjoy the full retreat experience with their days packed with fun activities like rock wall climbing, high ropes, Basketball, Tennis, Soccer, Quidditch, Omnivores and Carnivores challenge, Running pictionary, and more. Beyond our fun camp games, campers will also get to do canoeing, kayaking and many other active outdoor activities designed to target team building, leadership, love of outdoors and active living. And of course, all activities are delivered in French by our dynamic counsellors.
In the evening, campers will be treated to French and Quebec folktales as well as “chansons-à-répondre” and traditional folklore songs around the campfires while roasting marshmallows. Why not ask us for the lyrics to a few songs in advance to allow your students to learn the words and sing-along?
You can expect your students to have greater confidence in using their French verbal skills, enrich their vocabulary and strengthened friendship bonds.
