MWS Montreal French Camps

All classes, excursions, tours and camp activities are conducted in French. The French Camps staffs are native French language speakers who communicate with campers in French at all times. The use of French is encouraged through positive re-enforcement.

MWS Montreal Camps offer residential and day programme options.
