Attention Aspiring Actors and Film Buffs!


For the past 12 summers, Berridge Programs has been welcoming students from around the world to the Chateau le Mont Epinguet in Normandy, France to live in community, develop their unique talents and experience another culture. Our programs offer the perfect blend of performing arts camp and travel abroad experience. Last year, we introduced a new offer to Canadian applicants to pay their tuition in Canadian dollars, a savings of over 25% off our program tuition. This resulted in some amazing talented young Canadian artists joining us last summer and we are keen to have more!

We offer programs in both Acting and Film open to students age 14-19. Our programs are taught exclusively in English however there are plenty of opportunities for French speakers to practice their language skills both on the program and out in the wider community on field trips and excursions. You can read about our program here

In addition, Canadian applicants are welcome to apply for our Scholarship Program to receive more financial assistance. We offer a Merit Scholarship in the amount of $1500 and our Financial Need Scholarship for up to 60% off the program tuition. You can find information about scholarships here
