The Montreal French Camps are designed for students who are interested in learning French while being immersed in Canada’s most bilingual city. A variety of excursions, daily classes, sporting activities and a fully organized on-camp programme keep the students occupied and learning at all times.
All classes, excursions, tours and camp activities are conducted in French. The French Camps staffs are native French language speakers who communicate with campers in French at all times. The use of French is encouraged through positive re-enforcement.
MWS Montreal Camps offer residential and day programme options.
There are 3 separate MWS Montreal French Camps. They are:
Junior Camp – 7 to 10 years old
Intermediate Camp – 11 to 13 years old
Senior Camp – 14 to 17 years old
Each camp is specifically designed to meet the needs of the particular age group. Thus, there are some activities and excursions that are unique to each camp.
Once per week, the camps have “integration periods” where all three groups come together for special excursions and/or leadership building activities.
All camps offer the following:
Camper focused language classes
Exciting camp activities
All inclusive fees
