CAMP CHOCOLAT!

Our day camp program, Camp Chocolat is in the month of July for children aged 6-10.  Camp Chocolat is for campers who have completed grade primary to grade three  in French immersion

During each one-week session, campers participate in a variety of activities (in French of course!) such as arts/crafts, games, field trips, and language lessons.  There is swimming at the Needham Centre. Campers are dropped off at 8:30 each morning, and pick up time is 4 pm daily.  Early drop off and late pick up should be arranged prior to the first day.  All camp activities are weather and safety dependent.

French camp is a fun way to learn and reinforce language skills to make new friends and have fun this summer!

Camp du Soleil will be held at the Zatsman Sportsplex (formerly the Dartmouth Sportsplex) from  July 22 – 26 and July 29 – August 2, 2019.
