Welcome to the PF Summer Camp Blog where you will find the latest and greatest monthly updates until the start of 2016 camp season. June’s sunny days bring back the fondest memories of PF camp. Juicy organic watermelon for mouth-watering afternoon snack time, giggles following cannon balls at the pool, little hands and feet tapping to a favorite French pop song, eyes light up with joy from seeing interesting special guests, high fives all around after super fun obstacle courses, pride in silent smiles from completing an after camp reading program, artists all around crafting take-home masterpieces, open hearts and minds to meeting and making new friends, hugs all around from Counsellors who really care, guidance from a Camp Director who is always the mom away from home and awesome-amazing Campers who make Planète Française a spectacular place to be! Whether a beginner or advanced learner, you will discover that Planète Française is an extraordinary camp. Each day of every week has well thought out, action-packed and fun-filled curriculum based French learning. I am thrilled to have a super charged, talented and passionate team of Counsellor, Volunteers and Special Guests for this 2016 Camp season. I am honoured to have so many returning campers. I am grateful to new campers and parents for entrusting us to be their fun French-Immersion destination. Registration is still open with spaces available. PF Camp runs for 6 consecutive weeks starting July 11th. Let the summer fun begin. Please visit -> www.planetefrancaise.ca! Mille Merci, Wanda Srdoc – Founder and Director

SPECIAL GUESTS deserve special thanks – Our thanks go out to the LOCAL community who support Planète Française. This month, a super big thank you to the multi-talented Registered Dietician, Jamie Oliver Food Ambassador and Founder of the Yummy Lunch Club -> Carol Harrison.
We are truly honoured and fortunate to have Carol’s experience and creativity at both our Celebration and Green-Food Planets. She is passionate about teaching kids of all ages practical food preparatory skills along with healthy snacking and meals. If she is not on Rogers TV, CBC Radio or at a local school teaching creative ways to make a delicious and nutritious meal, then she will be with us at Planète Française expertly guiding PF campers through various snack and dessert recipes which are sure to inspire a love for healthy cooking at home. Please check out
