We’re so thankful for the amazing time we’ve shared the past few months with all of our friends in Canada and Oregon, Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, Minnesota, Texas, Wisconsin, Illinois, Tennessee, Washington, Washington DC, Virginia, North Carolina, California, Michigan, Arizona, Colorado, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Florida, Kentucky, Ohio, Montana, South Dakota, Mississippi, South Carolina, Indiana, and Haiti! Thank you so much for making our past Creole Bootcamps warm and fun! Our family loved exploring various parts of the United States and getting to meet friends and going beyond the Facebook images and status posts. I know we’ll have more opportunities to connect, in real life again, in the future!
Winter Creole Bootcamps are already forming and if you’re interested in hosting one with friends, team members, or with the members of the adoption agencies in your state please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. In a nutshell, the bootcamps help to jumpstart a beginner or boost the creole of someone who is already in the process of learning the language. Dates and times are up to the individual who decides to coordinate on their end. Coordinators are responsible to find a location and help co-host the Facebook Events Page. The cost is $125 per individual and children ages 15 and under are free. Beginners book can be purchased for children at $10 per child. Adults (ages 16 and over) receive a free book-set and the complete Learn Haitian Creole with Gloria video download program to continue their learning. Please indicate if you need a separate class for children with Emily Michael Board, the creator of Children Can Learn Haitian Creole with Emily. If so, there is very limited availability.

The photo above is of the creole bootcamp students from Living Word Lutheran High School in Wisconsin who went to Haiti and used the creole they learned to communicate with children. They also played one of the games we taught them called Tonton Bouki! Thank you for understanding the importance of learning the language of a people you love, respect, and want to build relationship with. Thank you all for the honor and privilege of allowing us to be a part of your journey.
