Kids learn, explore, play, and grow in a program designed to immerse them in the language while having summer fun. Each day includes a language class plus a variety of activities and outings that introduce them to French cultures in New York City. Our biweekly themes come to life through cooking, theater, art, crafts, and singing as part of the core program. Kids get to add special daily electives that change on a weekly basis (see below) and every Friday they are treated to a special event—all en français !

notice from a parent or guardian is
required 24 hours in advance. There are
no make-up classes for absences. FIAF
must be notified if a child will be absent.
Children must bring their own snack and lunch. A list of necessary clothing, arrival and dismissal arrangements, medical forms, and other pertinent paperwork will be mailed via email to parents before the start of the session. FIAF is not responsible for any lost belongings. Please clearly label all belongings with your child’s name.
Every effort will be made to keep students
with others of the same level, however programs
