French Immersion at the 2008 Dewey Balfa Cajun and Creole Heritage Week

Lafayette - Preparations for Louisiana Folk Roots’ Dewey Balfa Cajun and Creole Week are moving along very well, and we’re just about at capacity for this great camp at Chicot State Park, April 18-25, 2008. Now we’re announcing a new offering for full- and part-time participants at this year’s camp: “Arrête pas le français!” This half-day adult-oriented French immersion program will run during the mornings of camp and involve a variety of field trips and learning activities with top local instructors.

If folks have already registered for camp, they’re welcome to get in touch with us if they decide they might like to spend their mornings participating in this rolling Cajun and Creole French mini-camp. And if folks are not yet registered for camp, we’re offering this pilot program as a full- or part-time option.

The cost for the half-day program only (no lodging) is $350. If you wish to participate on a full-time basis at camp, then our regular camp pricing applies. Our website has all the details.

Space is limited for the French immersion course. To register, please drop us a line at or give us a call at (337) 234-8360 if you’d like to take advantage of this special first-time offering!
