Summer Camps

We are pleased to announce the return of Le Camp D’Été for summer 2022! Our camps will once again be open to the public for rising G1 to G6 students while our mini-camp (preschool) will still be for incoming and current EB students (limitations apply). In addition to our super fun-filled French immersion camps we will also be offering Riveropolis Camp, a two week maker camp (English only), for rising G3 to G6 students. In addition to our in-person camps we will be partnering with Acadomia once again, to offer online Virtual French Camp as an alternative option.
Our French Immersion Junior camps consist of French in the morning (8:00am to 12:00pm), followed by exciting specialized afternoon activities such as sports, arts and crafts, gaming, music, science and more. Our minicamp consists of play based learning activities in French throughout the morning, followed by lunch, nap and quiet activities in the afternoon.
