Registration is open for the summer of 2022!
Before registering your child, please consult our COVID-19 Policy.
The COFD is pledging to ensure the health and safety of workers and campers by following the guidelines of the Ontario Ministry of Health. Following the latter’s camp guidelines, we ask that you provide us with the camper’s proof of vaccination upon arrival on his/her first day of camp.

To attend camp, your child must have attended at least one full year of French Immersion and be able to understand and express him/herself in French. See our FAQ’s for additional guidance.

At Camps Garnier and Marion a wide range of fun activities are organized around weekly themes. (Here is a typical week at camp.)
Every Tuesday, an outing or a guest is part of our itinerary. On Thursday, we spend the day at the outdoor swimming pool, such as Cedar Park in Bowmanville or Petticoat Creek in Pickering.
Camp Hours: 9:00 am to 4:30 pm. The fees for Before and After care listed below are applicable when the child arrives earlier than 8:55 am and/or leaves later than 4:30 pm.
Each child receives a T-shirt with each week of registration. The T-shirt is given on Tuesday morning. It is mandatory for all kids to wear the camp’s T-shirt during outings. Extra T-shirts are available at a cost of $10.00 each.
Athletic shorts or capri pants are recommended instead of jeans. Long hair should be tied and jewelry is prohibited in the gym. For more information, please consult the What to bring to camp page.
