My Camp experience with VSF was GOOD. There were many different activities and the camp director and counselors were really nice. It was not easy at the beginning for me to speak French but the French children were really nice to me and I made friends quickly, I learned a lot of new words with them. I loved all the activities but particularly the theater and dance workshops. Before I went to this camp I had no confidence in speaking French with other people but now yes! The campers and counselors really encouraged me and I can now have conversations in French! The French kids were all so friendly, we will stay in touch with Skype and Facebook and who knows maybe we will meet again next summer, I will recommend this camp to other kids in my school, I learned lots of new words in French and I learned a lot about France, how they speak, how they eat, how they think also. I LIKED IT ALL except leaving !!! I was so sad to leave all my friends.
