Children invited to take part in new French camp
It is a wonderful experiential opportunity for Island kids to have fun in French during the summer
The first year of a new Mini U camp is being offered in partnership with CPF P.E.I., the UPEI Panther Academy and the UPEI French as a second language (enseignement en français langue seconde) BEd French Program.
The summer camp will be for students who have completed Kindergarten up to Grade 6 in French Immersion or French language school. It runs beginning July 6 for seven weeks, Monday to Friday at UPEI.
A variety of activities is being planned by a curriculum consultant to ensure that there is the right mixture of fun and learning. All activities are in French.
To mark this undertaking CPF P.E.I. will be offering each camper family a free one-year CPF P.E.I. membership, valued at $25 and includes The CPF Magazine, an ebulletin to help a child experience French in the community and parent support, research and opportunity to be involved.
Canadian Parents for French is a national network that values French as an integral part of Canada and is dedicated to the creation and promotion of French second-language learning opportunities for young Canadians.
"We are happy to be a part of the Learn and Play en Francais Summer Camp. It is a wonderful experiential opportunity for Island kids to have fun in French during the summer," said Brittany Jakubiec, CPF P.E.I. president.
