Kids embark on a thrilling summer adventure, en français, as they travel through France exploring its mountains, countryside, and waterfronts!

Kids will laugh, play, explore, and stay active all summer long during these week-long full-day camps. Each day includes two language classes plus a variety of activities that change every week, including cooking, theater, art, music, and sports.

Kids will visit the Asia Society, Central Park Zoo, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the American Museum of Natural History, Lincoln Center, and other places around the city. They will enjoy workshops taught by Sheridan Fencing Academy, New York City Football Club, and others.

Whether your child is brand new to French or already proficient, these day camps will help them learn and improve their French while having fun and making new friends.
