French Summer Camps listings

Whether you are looking for a traditional summer camp experience, a sports day-camp in French, or a week-long tenting experience for the whole family, we have the information you need!

A French camp experience offers fun and adventure AND it provides the structure for keeping up your child’s French during the summer months, a time when many students fall out of practice. Campers are able to improve their fluency by being exposed to different fun activities which allow them to use their language in a real-life setting.
