Welcome to K-W French





For the 18th year, we are happy to provide an educational, athletic and entertaining summer camp in a complete French immersion.

For the past 17 years, the K-W French Climbing Camp had over 2300 campers, age 6 to 12, coming from Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge, Guelph, Stratford, Fergus, Elora, Toronto, Brantford, Montreal, Quebec City, Italy, England, the State of Michigan, France, and as far away as China and Japan.

The children coming to our camp are being completely immersed in French. We offer various outdoor sports activities and games in the morning, followed by an outdoor picnic at lunch time. In the afternoon, the children go indoor rock climbing. All our activities are under tight supervision of 1 to 5 ratio.

They are 5 sessions this summer, starting Monday July 6, 2020 to Friday August 7, 2020

This summer we are running the camp at Grand River Rocks located 50 Borden Ave South in Kitchener (corner of Charles and Borden, with a large parking lot). Our hours are: 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Camp starts at 9:00 a.m., ending at 5:30 p.m. These no charge for the 30 minutes before and after camp. Cost per child, per week: $ 270, 5th session $216.

Our camp counsellors are French speaking, from France, Quebec, Ontario and other francophone regions of Canada or other countries. Our counsellors are professionally trained, possess their Standard First Aid certificate as well as their Police check, prior to work at our camp. All camp staff is belay certified for our climbing activity. 

We proudly select high quality French speaking staff.

The K-W  French Climbing Summer Camp is recognized by the Waterloo Region District School Board, Programs and Instruction Department.

I usually enjoy meeting parents and children prior to coming to our camp for the first time. We’ll make an appointment for a convivial and casual registration meeting, in my home office located in the address highlighted below. I found it to be a nice way to meet parents and children and chat about the camp. Appointments take place on the weekend as I work in a French School during the day all week.

Once your appointment is made, your spots will be secured until your appointment day.
