Boost Your French With Camp Tournesol Virtual Programs & Camps
This summer, boost your French skills with live online learning! To accommodate the new reality of education in 2020, Camp Tournesol has adapted its beloved French summer camps and programs, and offering them in a virtual format.
Virtual Summer Camp
Camp Tournesol is offering fantastic virtual French camp programming to children aged 4 to 12 with significant academic components as well as fun aspects, run by trained and knowledgeable leaders, all on a safe and secure online platform. These virtual camps will make self-isolation feel less isolating, improve French skills, and so much more!
Virtual campers can look forward to receiving a package prior to their first week that contains an orange Camp Tournesol t-shirt, a crazy pen, and an envelope with assorted stickers, Camp T tattoos, and badges to be opened with your camp counselor! An additional badge envelope will be sent for each ensuing week you register for!
Virtual Camps include 3 modules for half-day campers and 6 modules for full-day campers. Snack time is included so kids can eat in front of their computers, chat with their friends, and take breaks to stretch their legs. Camps include tons of opportunity to practice various French skills and socialize with peers.
Virtual Camps runs from June 29 to end of Summer.
Virtual classes are also offered. These are daily 55 minutes online classes with groups of 6-8 depending on the class. These classes offer fun activities where students interact in French as well as academically focused programming to reinforce French learning. They range in prices from $60/week to $95/week. The material taught in each program is updated on a weekly basis.
These are ideal for students who are in French Immersion, Francophone schools, or native speakers, or students that have some prior French knowledge through private school, extended French, or Core French. Students that are beginners in French and are looking to learn are also welcome!
French Online Tutoring
The Brouillet Academy (sister company of Camp Tournesol) continues to fulfill the company's core mission of supporting student’s bilingual journey in convenient and customized online learning experiences. Drawing from the best of experienced and fully trained counsellors, this service provides busy families with an important tool for continuing their language learning journey. This one-on-one targeted support, might include specific French language skills or simply homework, with repetition, positive reinforcement, and most importantly — lots of practice.
Weekly French lessons are customized by each French tutor, with your child’s specific needs in mind. During the tutoring sessions, students develop their skills in understanding grammar, reading and vocabulary, and are exposed to common vocabulary and sentence structures that are necessary for communication. These are then reinforced in the activities completed during each session. Because the entire session is done online with a tutor, students also gain valuable speaking and listening practice! Students hear the pronunciation of key vocabulary and phrases that they will practice and incorporate into their own speech.
Make it a fun summer of learning at Camp Tournesol. They are here to help second language learners of all ages boost their motivation to improve their French language skills.
