Weekly French Summer Day Camp

Our thirteenth year of Art, Music and Science French Summer Day Camp offers a creative, nurturing and relaxed experience for children ages eighteen months through ten years.

Children of all levels and French-speaking backgrounds are encouraged to speak French naturally while engaged in captivating workshops designed to both educate and entertain. Our integrated approach specifically engages the child in lively and creative activities to enhance developmentally appropriate skills in a foreign language. We believe in a supportive and encouraging learning environment where children feel a part of our learning community and are prepared to take risks in a safe space. 

The daily schedule therefore includes a balance of stimulating and relaxing  developmentally appropriate activities. Outdoor activities will take place in the neighborhood parks and playgrounds. Our full-day program from 9:30AM – 2:30PM allows children to eat a home brought lunch and spend time outside at the park.

Whether your child is in a Dual-Language French Program, a native French speaker, or curious about the French language and would like to start learning – our teachers will find a place of fun and joy in the classroom setting. Learn through play-based engagement with songs, movement games, and thoughtful and complex art projects that are fueled by the children’s individual interests and preferences.

Snacks are provided for children in both programs and include foods such as organic fruits and vegetables, hummus and crackers, etc.
