Welcome to British Columbia Family French Camp

At BC Family French Camp, children from French Immersion and other French-speaking children bring their families along to camp! Families camp in their own tents or trailers. Together, we form a friendly neighbourhood, surrounded by the sounds of children playing and singing in French.

Parents enjoy a rewarding blend of lounging time and sharing in a variety of small volunteer duties while their children use their French in a wonderful outdoor setting with their energetic and funny French-speaking moniteurs.

Evening activities for the whole family include night games, volleyball or kickball, communal dessert, communal dinner, and sing-along campfires.

And parents don’t have to be able to speak French!

Many happy memories are always made at BC Family French Camp, have a look at one of these videos to see what we mean!

Camp Locations

Shuswap Lake Gwillim Lake Vancouver Island

You’ll find BC Family French Camp at three different locations in British Columbia, Canada. During July, the camp is near Salmon Arm, on the shores of beautiful Shuswap Lake, in the interior of the province. Then the camp moves to northern British Columbia at Gwillim Lake, near Chetwynd, for a week. The final two weeks of camp take place in mid-August on the beaches of Vancouver Island, near Nanaimo.

Activities at each location are designed to take advantage of the local geography, flora, and fauna.
