In English or French

July 2 - July 29, 2017

Our Programs

Both the English and the French curricula offer instruction at beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels. Each level includes oral and written work and offers a solid base for work in grammar and conversation. In general, the emphasis is placed on an improvement in spoken French and English but appropriate supplementary study is given to reading, writing, and comprehension skills. Classes usually consist of 10 to 12 students. This small class size allows for more individual attention for each student yet the groups are large enough to maintain a healthy class spirit.

Classes are held six mornings and four evenings a week. Placement tests are administered at the beginning of camp and class tests are given on a regular basis. Reports are made to parents at the conclusion of the month.

BCS strives to maintain a warm atmosphere and places equal emphasis on academic progress and personal well-being.

Academic Atmosphere

Courses are conducted by a team of carefully selected, qualified, and enthusiastic teachers.  The residential atmosphere and small classes provide the ideal situation for the benefit of all students, regardless of their level of achievement.  Bright, pleasant study areas, modern methods, and a flexible program provide us with the means to assist students in their work.

Sports and Activities

The sports and activities program, an integral part of the summer school experience, consists of supervised team sports and off-campus activities in the afternoons.  Each week, students choose a sport from among a list that includes soccer, tennis, softball, volleyball, squash, basketball, flag football, and ultimate frisbee.  Nearby beaches, riding stables, and a golf course provide additional recreational opportunities. Two afternoons a week, students participate in an off-campus activity of their choice such as swimming, canoeing, laser tag, or bowling.  On Saturday evenings and Sundays there are planned activities, including dances, the Bromont Water Slides, La Ronde amusement park, and more.  Field trips supplement all programs and two major cultural trips are used as necessary extensions of the language courses.

I learned more in one month at the BCS Summer Language Camp than I did in a year at my regular school. - Elizabeth (Quebec, Canada)
