BROCHURE SUMMER CAMP 2009 Powered By Docstoc
					We are pleased to describe our very special programs to you and explain what makes us exceptional in
the realm of international opportunities for young people and adults.

JEUNES DIPLOMATES’ programs offer exciting chances for children aged 7 through 15 to acquire
foreign language skills, practice their favourite sports and immerse themselves in French culture.
Participants spend their mornings studying French. After lunch, they participate in different sporting or
cultural activities including guided excursions to a local cheese factory, museums, historic sites and
extraordinary outings.

Our camps (summer and winter) take place in Megève, a magical ski/mountain resort. Megève is a year-
round operation including our summer camps. We are proud to provide qualified language teachers,
certified sports instructors and 24-hour supervision for all children. Accommodation includes room
service.
JEUNES DIPLOMATES creates a friendly, safe and comfortable environment for all participants.

Our Language camps provide not only the opportunity to learn a foreign language, they also encourage
students to experience new cultures, to make friends from around the world, to enjoy a variety of
activities, to learn about living and working with others, to participate in an international community and,
most importantly, to feel successful in their achievements.
We build confidence and we encourage our students to become active in their own learning, thus creating
a desire to continue learning and communicating.

JEUNES DIPLOMATES and summer programs are available in 1, 2, 3 or 4-week plans. We also
organise completely customised programs for Spring and Winter school breaks.
Accommodation and parallel programs for adult family members can be organised simultaneously, should
they wish to accompany their children overseas – JEUNES DIPLOMATES offers private and group
language lessons year-round for adults as well as for children and can tailor programs for business
language requirements.

We would be delighted to speak with you personally about our programs and to answer all your
questions. JEUNES DIPLOMATES is known as one of the best language schools in Savoie and we invite
you to visit our web site : www.cifel.fr


Looking forward to meeting you soon.
Best wishes,

                                  MEGEVE
Located at an altitude of 1113 m in a preserved mountain setting in the heart
of the French Alps, Megève is a charming village. With its typical mountain
architecture, Megève is internationally known as the place where the “fuseau”
ski trousers were invented in 1930 by “Allard”.
Not only is Megève well equipped for sport, offering a large choice of
mountain activities, but is also home to a classical music festival and a
jazz contest in the summer, which everyone can enjoy. There is even a horse
show and an old car rally!
The surroundings offer marvellous walks following tracks, animal footprints,
or watching clouds chasing each other across the sky…
Megève is ideal for outdoor holidays and fresh air!


                                THE SCHOOL
The school is situated right in the centre of the village, close to the
antique shops, opposite the students’ campus.
                                                                   Blanc
Two programs are organised at the same time: In the land of Mont Blanc to
practice English and Au pays du Mont Blanc to practice French. Students are
either English speakers or French speakers and gather for sports and
entertaining activities. Thus, they create a good communicative context
through several languages which is the originality of our formula.
English and French lessons begin in the morning with the possibility of
preparing the University of Cambridge and the Alliance Française exams
according to the students’levels.
To help practice the language, the students write a play, helped by teachers
and staff, where everyone can do their best and have fun.
Our teachers are experienced with youngsters and their motivation guarantees
the success of our program.



                           OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES
Cifel organises sports and other activities using everything Megève has to
offer. Afternoons are dedicated to mountain biking, summer sledding, ice
skating, fishing, hiking, tree climbing and, of course in winter skiing,
snowboarding, etc. Field trips to amazing places such as la Mer de Glace (the
famous glacier in Chamonix Mont Blanc) or wonderful Lake Annecy will fill
students with enthusiasm.
Another way of getting involved in Megève’s life is to perform the play in
the village square ! At the end of the day, we will all gather around a
campfire or organise another event such as game contests, films, grilled
trout and marshmallows… Peaceful moments allow reading, dreaming or chatting
with other foreign students.

                                   I liked my trip to Chamonix and Mer de
                                   Glace. It was exciting and stunning, a once-in-
                                   a-lifetime experience.

                           CAMP DETAILS
Jeunes Diplomates Summer camps are modeled on the American summer
camps and our staff has an excellent understanding and experience with the
American system. Our camp is also listed with the National Camp Association.
Jeunes Diplomates staff includes our camp director, qualified French
counselors (BAFA) and American counselors. The ratio of staff to children is
higher than the norms set by the governing body for sports and camps in
France (la Direction Départementale de la Jeunesse et des Sports (DDJS))
our accommodations, restaurant and outings are all approved by DDJS.

Ratio for DDJS: 1 counselor for 12 children
Ratio for Jeunes Diplomates: 1 counselor for 6 children

Our staff supervises the children 24 hours a day in all their activities,
including their personal needs such as hygiene and/or specific medical
treatment if required.

Our teachers are all native speakers. They prepare their programs around a
specific theme each year. Our teaching goals are to have children progress
and enrich their communication skills in an enjoyable way.
We want our courses to be alive and interesting, different from the normal
school routine. The numbers of students in the language classes are limited
and are determined by level to encourage the greatest amount of
participation and improvement.
We want our campers to spend their summer in safety while enjoying many
different activities our camps offer.
                   Accommodation and Meals




When your child arrives at the centre, he/she is placed in mixed groups of
children of the same age. The children are allocated rooms based on age and
sex. We try to put English speaking children with French speaking ones to
maximize the learning experience.
There’s a counsellor at every floor. The children are staying at Mont-Charvin
hotel in the heart of the village, across from the school.
The hotel receives a visit each year from the Health and Safety inspection
(Commission Hygiène et Sécurité).

Each room has 2 or 3 beds with a bathroom and a toilet and they are cleaned


every day. We offer your children top quality accommodation.

Children less than 10 years old go to bed at 9:30pm and the others at
10:00pm.
The children have their meals in the hotel restaurant. We offer a delicious
and balanced menu. Special menus (vegetarian, low salt etc) can be provided
if a medical certificate has been given to the camp!.
