Jasper Sleigh Ride


Canadian Parents for French Alberta is proud to be the founder and the coordinator of “French Family Fun Weekends”.  These weekends are an opportunity for families of students in French-second-language, French Immersion and Francophone programs to come together to not only celebrate their childrens’ French language skills, but to also provide them an opportunity for their children to “live” French by participating in a full-day socio-cultural activity.

The two weekends are:

  • French Family Weekend – Jasper:  Typically takes place the end of February/beginning of March; and
  • Falling Into French Weekend  – Banff/Canmore:  Typically takes place the end of September/beginning of October.

The format is similar for both weekends:

  • Arrive Friday night
  • Saturday from 08:30 to 16:00 – Student programming
  • Saturday from 09:00 to 11:00 – Parent education session
  • Saturday evening – Dinner and French entertainment
  • Sunday morning – Family activity.

The price for the weekend includes the following:

  • Two (2) nights accommodation for two (2) adults and two (2) children under age 18.
  • Breakfast Saturday and Sunday mornings
  • Dinner and entertainment Saturday evening
  • Student programming all day on Saturday
  • Lunch for students on Saturday
  • Parent education session
