2020 Dates & Locations
Given that the COVID-19 situation in Saskatchewan is still quite fluid and the future is definitely unknown, the Branch Board of Directors has taken the decision to formally cancel the face-to-face Fête du soleil camps for the summer of 2020 in all the previously-planned locations.
To insure that some programming does still occur over July and August, the Branch Office is currently working to develop a replacement by way of a virtual Fête du soleil. Information will be posted as it becomes available.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to adapt to the challenges created by this unprecedented event.

This popular one-week summer day camp program is offered by Canadian Parents for French – Saskatchewan in conjunction with local chapters. The camp is available to children from kindergarten to grade five. The week’s activities are led by bilingual monitors who are chosen for their experience and enthusiasm, as well as for their knowledge of the French language. This exciting program is offered in communities across the province. Each day consists of a theme, as well as several games, sports, crafts, music and more, all of which are carried out bilingually – primarily in French. Children will have the opportunity to experience French in a stimulating but relaxed setting outside the classroom, and will be encouraged to learn and use the language in interesting and constructive ways.
Each local chapter, along with the support of the CPF-SK Branch Office, organizes their own Fête du soleil. This includes developing a schedule, setting fees, finding a location for the event as well as planning any field trips. The local chapter also looks after registration. Parents must provide transportation to and from the event, which usually operates full days, Monday to Friday. Children supply their own lunch and snacks. Fees are tax deductible as child care expenses. For more information on your local Fête du soleil, please contact your local CPF-SK chapter.
