ABOUT

Welcome to Planète Française 2020!

IMPORTANT WORK for a growing world.   Un travail important pour un monde en croissance.

Planète Française is undergoing new and exciting changes to engaging Children in the French language while inspiring them to be Eco-Leaders in this world.  Since our inspection 7 years ago, we have grown by offering affordable and personalized services to our camp community.  As our camp has grown, we grown to accomodate their interests and needs.  We have an excellent Leadership-In-Training program for 12-15 year olds to build practical skills and most importantly self-esteem.  We continue to include extended care, after-camp reading and writing clubs, healthy and organic snacks and engage campers with top eco-leaders in our community.  However, in order to grow, we are taking a pause to reflect and retool our camp to include even more affordable services.  As such, after thoughtful consideration and reflection, we are taking a step away from the 2020 camp season to build the new and exciting building blocks to our current camp model.    We thank you for your understanding and hope that you will join us for 2021 camp season! 

Nous vous remercions de votre compréhension et espérons que vous vous joindrez à nous pour la saison des camps 2021! 

La communauté du camp me manquera beaucoup

We are an innovative Eco-Food French-Immersion summer camp where campers will have FUN while learning FRENCH.  Discover and explore our fascinating planet through action-packed thematic programs which incorporate our practice of sustainability from the projects we do to the snacks we eat. From  Sports, Games, Dance, Animal Eco-Club, Pop Art to TOP CHEF-Party Prep, we are sure there is something for everyone! Each week is unique and will include several new and useful French words, phrases and expressions that Campers can try at home. Every week includes very special guests – stand out professionals from our great local community who will inspire campers to believe that anything is possible with determination and passion. 

Planète Française is designed to introduce, reinforce and develop language skills for children between the ages of 4 1/2 – 11 years old.  Our qualified French speaking Camp Counsellors are very creative (sneaky, in fact) at progressive teaching within a non-formal summer camp structure.  We understand it’s SUMMER!  We also believe that learning is individual.  Campers will have numerous opportunities, positive role-modeling and encouragement from Counsellors to speak, sing, read and write in French.

PLUS!  Campers will experience the most YUM ever at Camp!

Planète Française is more than just a Fun-French-Immersion camp!  Integral to the program is our Sustainable and Healthy Learning philosophy:  Healthy Minds = Healthy Bodies = Healthy Planet.

Planète Française is an advocate of earth-friendly, organic, fresh and local food sources.  We incorporate a healthy food-prep program within many of our themed weeks to actively include campers in creating the easy, nutritious and tasty snacks they will eat at camp and hopefully continue at home. Yummy and healthy snacks* will be included as part of weekly camp enrollment and provide each and every day.  In our extended camp care program called the “After-Camp Lemonade Club”, will be providing a refreshing beverage. We are so thankful for the generous and continued support from our main summer sponsors: ROWE FARMS and THE BIG CARROT.  Many healthy and local foods are discovered by campers with their support.  This is a highlight of most Camper’s Day!  The smiles are a sure indication that the After-noon Snack program is a success!
