Register Now

Toddlers embark on an exciting adventure with Le Petit Prince to discover France in New York through art, poetry, and science.

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's Le Petit Prince was born in 1942 in New York. This summer, he will spark the children's imagination and encourage them to dream, think, and create—en français !

Toddlers will engage with the language through weekly themes animated by art, stories, games, music, yoga, cooking, science experiments, and more. Children staying for the full day enjoy outdoor playtime in Central Park.

These week-long haf-day and full-day camps are appropriate for both toddlers new to French and those who have already been exposed to the language.

Registration recommended by April 15 to secure your preferred dates.
