Des Vacances Intelligentes …
It is by opening our minds and senses to the world that we may better understand ourselves and those around us. Learning a language provides a pathway to this end but only through experience are we afforded true understanding.
Le Voyage Ouvre l'Esprit
Our goal is to take each child on a voyage of personal discovery and to spark his/her interest in developing a deeper knowledge of France, its language and culture.
Immersion is the key. Sitting passively in a classroom abroad does not enhance language learning, in fact the opposite occurs. Children tend to group together and speak their native language (English, Spanish…) instead of French.
Our efforts are limited by time, yet our program’s intensity offsets its brevity. By emphasizing having fun while speaking French in natural, everyday living situations, we allow each child to progress at his or her own pace without pressure.
Vivre Sans Frontières…
Children and teenagers are adults in formation. All dimensions of their being are in a state of evolution (body, heart, and mind). They are learning to relate to others and the world in everyday life situations.
Physically, emotionally, intellectually and socially, children 6 to 17 years old are constantly growing. It is for this reason that we want to offer them a fun as well as educational summer program. Through our theme camp programs, children live a true adventure, they are part of a story, a real mission that gives direction to their holiday!
Your child will be the hero of his (her) adventure!
Art and culture, sports and adventure, science and nature, horseback riding and discovery, music halls and medieval shows are all part of this wonderful experience. Our program helps children master their body, explore new places, discover history, express talents and become fluent in a foreign language easily and effortlessly. The activities we offer are fun and stimulate their imagination. Last but not least, they learn to live with others and create friendships and memories that could last a lifetime.
We dedicate ourselves to making a difference in their lives.
