Having fun together, in French! Learning by playing, getting involved in rewarding projects and around exciting themes. Fransk kulturhus’ creative French camps ensure parents a true educational dimension, and your children and their peers shared fun and the making of unforgettable memories!
A comprehensive Francophone experience
During each school holiday period, your children are welcomed in our Culture House, a warm French-speaking space where the watchword is conviviality! We offer edutainment activities which encourage children to cooperate and practice goodwill within the group – all in French. It is important that the children feel “at home” so that they spend their holiday time in joy, serenity and confidence while participating in fun and educational activities.
Who are these activities for?
The French camps, our creative holidays, are organised for children from 6 to 12 years old, regardless of their level of French. The children have access to tailor-made educational content to help them integrate into the group and optimise their learning.
What will my child learn?
Whether they are discovering or deepening their knowledge of the French language, the children will quickly find their place within the group. In the authentic French-speaking environment provided by our Culture House, the children will be able to develop relational, cultural and transversal skills in French.
These skills include, in addition to language acquisition, the appropriation of French cultural references (through games, songs, comics, stories, etc.), the design and implementation of projects that are important to them, while socialising and cooperating in French.
For example, one of our fantastic groups created its own comic book, from A to Z; they imagined the storyline, the characters, the layout and the illustrations. Chatopia’s Chat-Bouteille is available in the library!
How do you plan the creative camps?
Each theme is carefully chosen and each activity specially designed to give children the desire to learn by doing, and to have fun in a French-speaking environment. Thanks to the vocabulary and language structures they will acquire, they will be able to participate in activities and, consequently, progress naturally in French.
In order to guarantee an optimal pedagogical quality along with the fun and entertaining aspect of the activities proposed, the programme is always elaborated in collaboration with the pedagogical department of Fransk kulturhus – our fantastic teachers who have the skills and experience of courses for children and teenagers: awakening to languages, early French, French as a school language (FLS), French as a foreign language (FLE),French as a second language (FSL), French as a mother tongue, tutoring, preparation for exams, etc.
Depending on the level of each child, activity sheets to do at home will be made available to children who are curious to learn more!
Who runs the French camps?
Mary Rollin, Fransk kulturhus’ librarian, is also responsible for the French camps. She is a trained special educator and animator and has been working with young people since she was 17.
Throughout this unique immersive experience, she provides a caring and reassuring presence to the children so that everyone can find their place in the group and reap the benefits of a pleasant and enjoyable group life.
The children are also naturally integrated into the daily life of Fransk kulturhus, and have the opportunity to interact with the competent and caring adults of the team with whom they can share moments of conviviality, chosen activities, planned outings, etc.
What is a day like at a French camp?
The children are welcomed from 09.00 and the activities start at 10.00. Lunch break is taken between 11.30 and 12.30 before resuming the afternoon activities. Children are welcomed until 16.00 and can be collected from 15.00.
During the reception period and before the parents arrive, they can also take advantage of over 3 000 resources of the French library, which has a rich offer for children and teens (books, albums, comics, DVDs… as well as numerous board games).
