The Alliance Française de Charleston offers full day french immersion camps this Summer for children aged 5 to 13 years old.
All levels and Francophones are welcome. Every week, we offer a new topic with hands-on activities and a field trip.
Full immersion French camps are a great way to keep your kids active and up to speed in the language practice over the summer. Specialized instructors provide campers with a continuous mix of french lessons, games, activities, projects designed to build vocabulary, conversational ability, pronunciation, and learn about France, its history and culture. Each day includes two language classes, and an activity that changes every day; they will explore French cuisine by cooking delicious sweet and savory dishes, sing in a choir, paint painting à la française, play typical outdoor French games, etc..
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.
