Adventure Program

The Department of Education is pleased to advise that it is accepting applications for bursaries for the summer 2023 program for the Adventure Program 2023 (formerly called the Summer Program in French for Level I Students).



The Department of Education is pleased to continue its longstanding collaboration with Collège

Saint-Charles-Garnier for Summer 2023. We have also added an additional institution for Summer 2023. The Department is pleased to collaborate with Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières, Québec this summer.

Students can choose from one of two institutions:

• Collège Saint-Charles-Garnier: Sunday, July 2, 2023 (Arrival) – Saturday, July 29, 2023

• Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières : Sunday, July 2, 2023 (Arrival) – Saturday, July29, 2023 (Departure)

Both programs are four weeks in duration and offer French classes (beginner level to advanced levels) in a French-speaking environment, cultural activities, and excursions. The dates for both programs are the same and the offering of both institutions are very similar. Therefore, we encourage students to select both locations as their preference.


Application forms, as well as a one-page informative PDF, will be available on the Department of Education website at: https://www.gov.nl.ca/education/k12/french/bursaries/. The application form is attached.

Please note that, exceptionally for Summer 2023, subsidies to assist with travel costs will be available to bursary recipients. More information will be provided as it is available.

The deadline for receipt of applications for the Adventure Program is February 17, 2023. All applications must be emailed to adventure@gov.nl.ca as an attachment in PDF format only.

You will notice that the program has a new name: Adventure Program. The word “adventure” can be defined as an exciting or remarkable experience. The Level I provincial program is merged with other programs. This translates into more opportunities for the participants. More opportunities to meet new people from our province and from other parts of Canada and the world. More opportunities to discover new places and have new experiences. The program name now reflects the exciting or remarkable experience they will have during this program, regardless of which location they attend. An experience that will remain with students long after they have completed the program.

Please be advised that Level I students are also eligible for the Explore Program.

Registration for Explore is open until February 7, 2023. Please note that students can apply for both Adventure and Explore but can only complete one of these programs.
