2019 Camp


Camp Tournesol

Since 2001, Camp Tournesol has provided French camps in the GTA for tens of thousands of children ages 4 to 14. Whether your child is Francophone, in French Immersion, or has no French experience, we have a day camp or an overnight experience for them. Language modules include a wide variety of instructional strategies for learning in formal and informal settings. For example, arts and crafts is a time for campers to flex their artistic muscles while interacting in French in an authentic task. From cooperative learning to structured simulations, the creativity module engages campers’ imagination and social skills in creating a shared skit, song or dramatic piece. Counsellors teach and model new vocabulary and sentence structures, adapted to each child’s French level. These are then applied in the course of our modules such as team building, sports and favourite camp games like cat and mouse, choir master and “What time is it, Mr. Wolf?” In this supportive context, kids are encouraged to share, learn, and try new things. Activities and themes change week to week.
