MINI-CAMP 2020

Mini-camp is for children entering preschool (minimum age 3 1/2 and potty-trained) and Kindergarten. Camp is offered from June 22 to July 17, 2021*.

Activities in French

We introduce and reinforce French acquisition through specialized French instruction periods during two periods in the morning. These activities will include basic language skills like learning greetings, colors, animal names, food names, simple social interactions, songs, reading, and arts and crafts. All learning revolves around the weekly themes. Our program also focuses on social-emotional learning and helps mini campers gain social skills through everyday interactions.

 

After the morning activities, lunch, and recess, the children will settle down for their afternoon nap/quiet time, followed by independent play and dismissal. All lunch and nap schedules will remain similar to an EB school day.

  • Week 1 (June 21 – June 25) La Cuisine
  • Week 2  (June 28 – July 2) Aventures en Jungle
  • Week 3 (July 6 – July 9) Safari africain (no camp on July 5th in observance of independence day)
  • Week 4 (July 12 – July 16) La Cuisine
  • Week 5  (July 19 – July 23) Le monde oceanique
  • Week 6 (July 26 – July 30) Dans la ferme 


What to Expect in Other Learning Sessions

  • Art: mixing colors, cutting, gluing, drawing, and discovering forms, and textures.
  • Movement: developing fine and gross motor skills as well as coordination through various outdoor games and movement activities.
  • Music: new vocabulary and rhymes through French songs. 


Aftercare (in English) and Afternoon Activities (in French)

Campers will awaken from nap or finish up with quiet play, to enjoy a healthy snack outside followed by freeplay, with multiple activity options in different areas of the playground.

 

From Monday to Thursday, campers who are still present at 4:30pm will enjoy an afternoon activity conducted in French, such as soccer, cooking, gymnastics, science, arts, etc. Sometimes these activities are split into multiple groups depending on how many children are present.

 

On Fridays, Le Camp d’Ete will feature a performance for the whole camp (including Junior Campers) and their parents.
