- 5 Concerts nouvelle scène and 5 visual art exhibits per year.
- French classes for adults and a summer camp for children.
- Philosophers' café, Francophone book club, beach volleyball, storytelling for children and an evening of discussion in French every Wednesdays.
SUMMER CAMP IN FRENCH!
Camp Virgule is a fantastic opportunity for children from 6 to 12 years of age to learn and practice their French while having fun. A special program is created each year around entertaining activities, including games, sports, outdoor excursions, visits to the beach and museums, for a summer that is full of francophone adventures! The camp starts at the beginning of July until mid-August.
