The Our Kids review of Camp Tournesol

 

Camp Tournesol was founded in 2001 by Martine Brouillet as a means of supporting language learning through the summer months, while also providing francophone environment for francophone campers. In, it was one of the truly dual-immersion programs in the GTA. Because of the language support, as well as the breadth of activities on offer, the camp has grown exponentially over the years, now including 19 locations and nearly 3000 participants through the summer season. The days are active, including team sports, games, as well as arts and crafts, drama, field trips, music—the full gamut of active, engaged camp programming. The camps also provide a unique environment for language learning, one beyond the classroom or school setting. For kids in French immersion, it’s a valuable opportunity to use the language less formally, building fluency and activity specific vocabulary.

Director's Message

director

Martine Brouillet, Directrice

My name is Martine Brouillet and I am founder and director of Camp Tournesol. I am a strong supporter of bilingualism and created this camp to fill what I viewed as being a void in Ontario for quality French-language summer camps. At Camp Tournesol, we provide an environment that supports and enriches the learning and exploration of the French language in Ontario. We strive to create a fun atmosphere in which your children can use their French verbal skills in the summer, outside of the classroom environment. Essentially, we want our campers to have fun and confidence, while speaking and practising their French. Our goal is that they change their perception of French and realize that it is not an academic topic but a living language and therefore decide to pursue french immersion at high school. We offer out of province overnight trips to French destinations such as Quebec, overnight weeks in Ontario, as well as day camps with several campuses across the GTA for children as young as 4 years old and up to 14 years old with our leadership programs. I continually look for way to enhance and grow our programs and welcome your feedback!

We hope to see your children next summer!

Growing up with Camp Tournesolexpand

I have been a camper at Camp Tournesol from the very beginning. As a camper, every summer I would look forward to Camp Tournesol because I got to see my friends and the same counsellors year after year. When I was too old to be a camper and had to choose to be a counsellor in training (CIT) or not go to camp, I automatically chose to become a CIT. I had had such a good time as a camper that I did not want the fun to end. As a CIT I learned the ropes of what it was like to be a counsellor; teaching different games, starting thousands of friendship bracelets for campers and most importantly showing the campers it is easy to have fun while speaking French. When it came time for me to be a counsellor I was all for it. My first year working as a counsellor was with people who had been my counsellor when I was a camper. They became my Camp Tournesol family. All the counsellors are extremely friendly and supportive, and when you or the campers, run into a problem they are there to help you out. I come back to work at Camp Tournesol year after year because I have developed friendships with all the other counsellors along with getting to see the same kids come back, see them grow and see their French improve. From camper to CIT to counsellor I have seen every aspect of the camp and I believe the best thing that Camp Tournesol offers to the campers is it shows them they can have fun speaking French.
