October Camp

Our accreditation by the French ministry of education means that we adapt our calendar to the French standards. La Toussaint in France, or what we call "October Break" in Providence, happens in French schools around the world. Historically it was observed as a religious holiday, but is maintained by French schools to ensure that students have regular breaks throughout the academic year. Our October campers get to enjoy peaceful trips to the zoo, outdoor activities, and the playground.

More about October Break

Typically students enjoyed crafts like making scarecrows with hay,  Halloween spoons with Frankenstein, spooky ghosts, fall drawings, and carved pumpkins. Each day they bake French recipes like apple tart, and compote de pommes. Campers also go on area outings like the zoo and games at the park.
