During this special day, the students present their culture, country and traditions to the other summer camp participants.

At Les Elfes international summer camp, we have students from all over the world. Within this international community, we feel it is beneficial to international-day recognize the traditions of each other. It not only gives students the opportunity to celebrate their nation or beliefs but allows them to bring a little piece of their home culture into the camp.

Also, students from other parts of the world will learn and hopefully appreciate the cultures of others.

The fabrics of society are made up of many cultures, and here at Les Elfes international camp we constantly strive to recognize them all, and if it means cooking some traditional dishes, or decorating the chalets accordingly, then we are more than happy to encourage summer campers to do so and will help them along the way.

The International Day will involve the students preparing a presentation during their language classes. The presentation will be on where the students are from. The students will have the morning to prepare a large poster, have access to arts and crafts, music and pictures, and will present the information on their heritage, culture, beliefs, as well as the fun and cool parts of their countries and cities of origin.

Also, the students will give a menu or dishes to the chefs in the days leading up to ID. The chefs will then prepare meals from all over the world, so students on this day will not only present and listen to presentations but eat and sample the flavours and smells of the Far East, South America, Europe, the Middle East and more.

It is a fantastic opportunity for students to present their culture, do some public speaking, and enjoy the food from each other’s countries.
