Studying French in Quebec with legendary teachers and experiencing the music festival first hand was such a privilege. I enjoyed my summer program and made great friends. I know where I am going next summer to polish my French skills!

I tend to be an overprotective mom.

I was very pleased with the information provided before arriving to camp. My daughter Rebeca was there 3 weeks and enjoyed every second of it.

See you next summer!

Thank you for being part of one of her best life experiences!
