Welcome to the PF Summer Camp Blog where you will find the latest and greatest monthly updates until the start of 2016 camp season. May is a beautiful time of the year to celebrate. May the 4th be with you, Happy Mother’s Day and Happy Victoria Day, to name a few! It is also a time to marvel nature as she presents an array of colours, which almost magically appear to budding flowers and trees. This is a perfect month to review our wonderful camp week called Celebration Planet (Jul 18-22). During this 5-day camp, we are setting up a spectacular itinerary for campers to discover how societies around the world celebrate people, nature and historical events. Each day will highlight a new celebration from one of the four corners of our planet through dance, songs, beautiful crafts, games and tasty treats. We will cover the Summer Solstice in Northern Europe and Quebec, Brazil’s Carnival, Japan’s Children’s Day and of course, Canada Day. We will end the week creating our very own PF French-Immersion Celebration Day.
A special note: If all of this celebrating wasn’t enticing enough, maybe our ENHANCED treat making component will sweeten the week. Green-Food Planet (Aug 8-12) is FULL. Due to the popularity of this raw food cooking week, we have now included a dessert making component within our Celebration Planet (July 18-22) at our Earl Haig Jr. P.S Campus. Please join us this summer at Planète Française for action-packed, unique and fun-filled French learning. Most weeks have spaces still left!
Mille Merci, Wanda Srdoc – Founder and Director, PF www.planetefrancaise.ca

MORNING CAMP TRANSFER PROGRAM – We want to make the mornings hassle free! In this summer camp season, we are very happy to launch our Early BIRD Pick-ups near select neighborhood schools, especially those deemed further away from our main campus locations. This service is the low cost of AM Extended care ($35/$28) and it includes 1 hour of pre-camp activities and care. Please inquire if your neighborhood is part of this safe and convenient option.
ENHANCEMENTS to French Literacy – Our Affordable After-Camp Reading Club now includes support for writing development. We have a library full of options for every level and we encourage campers to bring their favorite books in as well.
