The islands become a classroom as the participants explore the culture through language practice, tours, meetings with the locals, and a complete immersion in Saint-Pierre’s way of life. CPF NS and CPF PEI had advertised for this camp but was not able to secure air travel and so therefore has been cancelled. The Francoforum does operate year round, you would have to make your own arrangements with them.
