Send your child on a journey of French discovery!
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 !
