This summer, kids embark on a thrilling adventure en français as they discover myths, legends, tales, and secrets from around the world!

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 exciting activities including cooking, theater, art, music, and sports. Activities will change each week. Kids will visit the Asia Society, Central Park Zoo, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the American Museum of Natural History, 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 improve their French while having fun and making new friends.
