For students entering Grades 3-5

Cousteau bilingual summer camps take place inside and outside and incorporate athletic, academic, and creative pursuits. In addition to exciting programs run by Cousteau’s own talented instructors, we are excited to partner with Dolphin Kids, Sportball, Faly Academy, and The Dream Circus (Les Transporteurs de Rêves).

Dolphin Kids™ programs focus on innovation, leadership, and resiliency. Their mission is to nurture and inspire every child’s innate intelligence and innovative nature by empowering them to be self-motivated through social connection, positive communication, critical thinking, creative expression, and purposeful contribution.

Sportball methodology is designed to support three key areas of development: sport skills, social skills, and motor skills. Students learn the fundamentals of eight different ball sports in a fun, non-competitive setting.

Faly Academy is led by French footballers with international professional experience whose passion is to help students achieve their personal best. Focus is on technical aspects of soccer. Widely recognized as one of the premier academies on the North Shore, Faly coaches highlight the importance of sportsmanship and comportment while on the field.

The Dream Circus (Les Transporteurs de Rêves) is run by former Cirque du Soleil talent Benoit Ranger, universally recognized by his artistic name “Ben la Barouette.” Together with other professional circus instructors, he will teach the art of circus through the five major disciplines: Acrobatics, Equilibrium, Aerials, Object Manipulation, and Performance.

Cousteau School instructors possess either an Early Childhood Education (ECE) certificate or an Early Childhood Education Assistant (ECEA) certificate and are experienced educators who work with Cousteau students throughout the school year.
