VSF Camp 4
LE CHATEAU DE FORMANOIR
This camp was a great help towards my French and my horseback riding. Before I went to this camp I had no confidence in speaking French with other people but now yes! The campers and counselors really encouraged me and I can now have conversations in French! One of my favorite memories at camp was galloping in the fields on the way to the campsite where we stayed overnight. It was my very first time galloping and camping I really enjoyed it. I would definitely do this camp over again. I recommend this camp to everyone who wants to improve their French at the same time have fun!!!
My Camp experience with VSF was good. I was not homesick or sad to be away from home. There were many different activities and the camp director and counselors were really nice. It was not easy at the beginning for me to speak French but the French children were really nice to me and I made friends quickly, I learned a lot of new words with them. I loved all the activities but particularly the medieval workshops, making costumes, swords and dressing as knights, we also went to visit a beautiful city. I also enjoyed very much the horseback riding camping trip where we spend the night by the camp fire, this was the best night I spent at camp really ! There were 95 poneys at the camp, they give you 1 horse for the whole session and we each take care of our own horse during the entire camp session, I felt really close to my horse, his name was Quartz, he was perfect and I will always remember him! It was the first time I was riding this summer, before camp I had been on a horse but never really ride or jump, now I can jump fences, galop and I also know how to take care of a horse now. I love it…I would like to come back to this same camp next year because I just liked everything about it and especially my horse… .oh yes, I forgot there were also really nice girls ! The French kids were all so friendly, we will stay in touch with Skype and Facebook and who knows maybe we will meet again next summer, my French is much better now so I think I will be able to stay connectd with my French friends. I will recommend this camp to other kids in my school, I learned lots of new words in French and I learned a lot about France, how they speak, how they eat, how they think also. I LIKED IT ALL except leaving !!! I was so sad to leave all my friends.
