On Voyage dans le Temps à Vermilionville: 

It takes a village


 

Vermilionville will continue to host our Annual Summer Camp for four weeks. Each week is tailored to a specific group in order to provide age-appropriate and skill level demonstrations as well as hands-on craft opportunities. 

While your children are with us, they will experience the total Vermilionville package. Camp begins each morning at 8:30 a.m. and last until 4 p.m. We will provide campers with a light breakfast along with lunch & snacks from our restaurant, La Cuisine de Maman. If your child has any allergies, please communicate this information on the registration form so we can accommodate their needs. 

Throughout the week, campers will learn what makes Acadiana unique.

On the first two days, they'll learn about the earth, plants, the bayou, and natural resources. Our gardener and chef will teach the campers everything from planting their own food to preparing their own lunch. The following days will focus on Acadian, Creole and Native Americans cultures. In addition, they will work with artisans and musicians to learn about various music, crafts and historical facts.

Each day, campers will partake in hands-on projects. And, yes, they will be able to bring their handmade journals and other items home at the end of the week. The camp will conclude with a 'Show-Off' Day for parents and siblings to see what was learned.  Of course, we will keep camp favorites such as fishing, canoeing and boat tours.  But, we are adding new activities like animal tracking, archaeology and Native American pottery making. 

The camp will emphasize English and French languages. In order to register for French sessions, your  child must be able to speak French fluently or have completed at least a year of immersion classes. 

Cost for the week is $250. A $100 deposit is required (there is a $3 charge to pay online); your child's spot will not be confirmed until a payment is received. Siblings who register for camp will receive at $50 discount (one discount for one sibling). The registration fee covers all materials associated with hands-on crafts, food, t-shirt and water bottle.

*We recommend campers wear comfortable clothes and bring a beach towel, mosquito repellent, sunscreen, a hat and a change of clothes.
