Le Weekend de Crédits

Published: August 2, 2015

Bonjour les familles et amis des crédits! We said goodbye to our two-week villagers today and started our credit weekend! The crédits took their mid-session exams today, and then were able to relax for the rest of the night. We had an American themed dinner with BBQ chicken, macaroni and cheese, chocolate mousse, and some other American food! After dinner, we got ready for a second dance - at El Lago del Bosque (the Spanish village). We headed over...

Journée Moyen-Âge/La Belle Étoile

Published: July 30, 2015

Bonjour! Sorry for not writing a blog post yesterday - strangely there is no WiFi while camping (who knew?!). Our two-week villagers stayed on site yesterday and had fun participating in our Moyen-Âge (Middle Ages) theme! We even rearranged our salle à manger (dining room) to mimic the long tables that were used in the Middle Ages. During our sketches, we met the new Queen and Princess of Lac du Bois who insisted on having certain foods to eat! For...

Published: July 12, 2015

Coucou mes amis (hey friends)! At Lac du Bois, we are so lucky to have many staff members that are from France and other Francophone countries. Our theme today was PACA - Festival d'Avignon. For those of you that may not know, PACA means Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, a region in France. In this area, there is a city named Avignon, which also happens to be the name of one of our cabins here! So the theme today was about the region and the annual...

Journée Dinosaures

Published: July 10, 2015

Salut tout le monde (hi everyone)! Sorry this post is a little late, we had a busy night last night! Our theme of the day was dinosaures and the day was organized by the crédits (credit villagers). They put in a lot of time and effort to organize the day, and they did a great job! They essentially became monos (counselors) for the day. They performed the skit in the morning to introduce the theme, and then replaced our village...
