Welcome to the PF Summer Camp Blog where you will find the latest and greatest updates from now until the start of our 2016 camp season. March is indeed here, but please don’t panic! We still have 4 months and spaces available in all 6 of our exciting and unique themed weeks. J As we prepare for new SMILES and summer memories, it is nice to think of the past. Our school locations, special guests, organic food donors, counselors, parents and campers were simply the BEST! We are grateful to you all for making this camp amazing. As we grow from our very humble roots, with one classroom at Earl Haig Jr. P.S., we review the past in order to make the present even better. At Planète Française, we continuously refine and develop ways to ensure that the 2016 camp season is the best one yet. WE value your input – ideas, critiques and compliments. We are a community based camp. We encourage parent engagement and we work closely with local talent and businesses. Our commitment to connect to each and every camper is unwavering. We strive to make every Camper feel welcome, safe and confident with camp life and their French proficiency…and, we sure try to make their days full of fun and adventure! Please join us this summer at Planète Française.
Mille Merci, Wanda Srdoc – Founder and Director, PF
