Due to the COVID-19 coronavirus, changes to our summer camps program have been updated. Upon due consideration and consultation with our camp partners, CPF Nova Scotia will not be able to offer our usual day and overnight camp options this year. The health and safety of all our campers, camp staff and families are our main concerns at this time.
However Canadian Parents for French, Nova Scotia is going virtual for an exciting 2020 summer camp season! Please go to Virtual Camp page for more information on our virtual camp programs for July and August. Registration is now open.

The first day of camp is an orientation day with instructions and rules outlined in English, after which campers are expected to participate in French. Support and assistance to aid the campers’ vocabulary will be continuous. Campers will be in groups according to their abilities in French. Morning and evening sessions will have campers participating in language activities in small groups; afternoons will be dedicated to the various recreational programs offered.
