Camp Nominingue operates in English and a majority of our campers are anglophone. About 65% of our campers come from Quebec, 20% from Ontario and another 15% from outside the country. 20% of our parents say that their son speaks little or no English and choose Nominingue as an opportunity for English immersion.
Many francophones choose Nominingue to give their son the opportunity to practise his English. Our counsellors encourage non-English speaking campers to practise their English as much as possible. In setting up the tent groups, we try to ensure that all non-anglophone campers have English-speaking friends in the tent. There are sufficient French-speaking counsellors and campers to support unilingual French-speaking campers in their adaptation to life at Nominingue.
Due to our location north of Montreal and to the Francophone campers who choose Nominingue to practise their English, we are able to offer opportunities for English-speaking campers to practise their French. We can place an English-speaking camper in a tent with a couple of Francophones among his tent-mates or arrange for your son to have a French-speaking counselor. Parents may make this request in the Parent Form, available in their account as of April 15th.
