The best time of my life!

I just came back from a french camp known as Lac Du Bois. It was super fun and I had a great time. I even learned a lot of french there! We also ate french themed food, used euros as currency, and sang a ton of songs! We spoke french like the whole time too! It was the best time ever! :D

Lac du Bois is one of the langue villages of Concordia Language Villages. They have a variety of different camps dedicated to immersive language experiences. My daughter went to a youth camp for two weeks at Waldsee (the German village, then I joined her for a week of family camp -- we had an amazing time. I later went for a long weekend at an adult camp for Italian, and it was great. There are tons of options for kids, ranging from day camps to two week camps to month-long credit camps to their new combined credit camp/trip abroad. Concordia Language Villages is in Minnesota. I am not affiliated with them, just a huge fan.

Lac Du Bois....that means Lake of the Forest, right?

Or, Forest Lake.

My daughter loves Waldsee too and has been several times. This summer she’s going to Lac du bois. I’ve been to family weeks at both. I’ve also done a week of adult camp at Lac du bois. The beds aren’t that comfortable, but the food is terrific and the speaking opportunities are unbeatable. Some instructors are terrific. I definitely recommend it as a really supportive place to learn and build confidence.
