Home Cookin'

At Ouareau, meals are served "family style" around the table. Fun, food, and friends all in one!

Campers Rave about our food!

When campers return home, they usually talk about two things:
their newfound FRIENDSHIPS, and the amazing FOOD they have eaten.

Not only is the food delicious, but the dining room atmosphere is intentionally created for language learning, friendship making, and most importantly – fun! Meals are served at the table "family style" (where food is brought to the table and served by the staff, unlike a cafeteria), but campers eat with a mix of campers their own age, not necessarily their bunkmates, giving them an opportunity to meet and converse with new people every week. They sit alternating by first language, with an Anglophone sitting between two Francophones, so that conversation is encouraged to unfold in the Language of the Day. Our dining room is a fun and exciting experience, with tables breaking out into songs and games.
