Virtual Summer Camp : a safe alternative

For those who prefer to stay home, we also offer an online option with our Bilingual Summer Camp. Our Distant or Virtual Summer Bilingual Camp offers your child a chance to be exposed to both French language and culture in a laid-back and engaging way. Not only, we offer a bilingual setting, but each camper will be part of a small group with peers of his age. As a result, best learning practices and super fun activities can be implemented. For example, each activity will offer the possibility for beginners to learn words and new concepts in both French and English.  Also, it will allow French-speaking children to talk, write, play and make scientific discoveries in both languages. In fact, it will be just like in our live streaming option at school, but with a LOT more fun!
