It's a great opportunity for kids to experience French culture.

The Conseil des ecoles publiques de l'Est de l'Ontario has been offering local anglophone students the opportunity to immerse themselves in French language and culture through their Camp d'immersion culturelle at ecole l'Heritage this July.

"We started last year as a pilot project in two of our schools," said camp organizer Katia Dupond. "We held a camp in one of our schools in Ottawa and one in Trenton."

Dupond said she wanted to expand the project to include more regional areas and made the decision to include Cornwall this year.
