FRENCH IMMERSION SUMMER CAMP: ages 2-6 years old

          In our weekly summer sessions, students will be immersed in French through play, art, music, storytelling, and science experiments. The classes are open to all levels of language learners and are adapted for beginners as well as fluent speakers. The objective of the summer sessions is to have as much fun as possible while absorbing new vocabulary and concepts and exploring new forms of creative expression.  Each session is run by bilingual educators with years of experience in dual language classrooms where there are many different levels of French comprehension and expression. Campers can come for one, two, or even all six weeks. 

The program runs on a weekly basis, with new activities each week based around a theme.
