French Nature Camp Registration Form
Our Sooke District Chapter of Canadian Parents for French is pleased to bring our students a wonderful French Nature Camp available locally in the Sooke School District-SD62 during March Break 2017. This would be ideal for our French Immersion students to help build their language skills while connecting with nature and learning unique skills. We will have two different day time weekly camps available, both weeks will be for students that are 7-11 years old (aprox. gr 2-6). The camp will be held at the wonderful Camp Barnard located at 3202 Young Lake Rd, Sooke, BC V9Z 0J6.

French is the language of communication to be used during the camps. Campers/students are expected to speak to the staff, volunteers, and other students only in French for the duration of the camp. It can truly make a difference for language skills as they will be speaking as one would daily verses reading from text, which was very impactful for those that participated in the past. In addition to the French Only rule, students are expected to behave in an appropriate manner while at camp. Rules and expectations will be emailed to you for the students and parents/guardians. In general, students are expected to follow instruction, participate in all activities, cooperate with camp staff and other students and demonstrate goodwill and respect towards other students and the facility.
