Parent Reviews of Previous French Language Camps

"French Camp was very interactive and filled with hands-on activities. The teachers were joyous and my girls looked forward to coming every day!"

"N. [my child] came home each day excited to tell me what he did at French Camp. I especially liked that he would jump out of bed in the morning anxious to get back to camp."

"French Camp was, of course, fun and educational. More importantly, it was a week my daughter will remember for a lifetime!"
