Overview

The fully elective program was designed and implemented at French Woods almost 53 years ago. They are masters of elective and creative programming, they can work with any camper no matter what their interest or skill level is, and we pride ourselves on offering each camper a unique individual camping experience.

Our fully elective program allows campers to select their own activities. The Major and Minor option gives campers the ability to mix concentration, experimentation, fun, recreation, and exploration.

There are six activities per day, each one hour in length; three of these periods are called Majors, and three are called Minors. Majors are chosen at the beginning of each session and are maintained for two weeks. Minors are chosen daily at breakfast. This lets campers concentrate on the things that interest them, while also providing the chance to try something new.

Academics

Play is one of the things that come most naturally to a person. It is through play that pupils learn more about the world around them in a safe and controlled environment, whilst simultaneously developing social skills. Play allows pupils to practice interacting with others while learning to respect the rules of the game they are playing, skills that they can transfer through to adult life.

When playing games and sports that involve physical actions or movement, they are led to develop their physical coordination or psychomotor skills too. All in all, regardless of the nature of the game/sport, games and play help develop pupils’ concentration and memory skills.

This is the approach used in this Camp to give the chance the international students to learn English as a second language.

The presence of more than 70% of locals gives the chance to experiment with the language on the field.
