Dates & Location

The OC French Summer Camp (OC-FSC) runs for 6 weeks beginning Monday, June 21, through Friday, July 30, 2021 on our Orange County campus.

 

Ages

The OC French Summer Camp welcomes campers entering Kindergarten  through 6th grade. 

 

Program Description

OC-FSC offers a bustling daily schedule and a watchful counseling staff.

 

Our objective is to introduce children to French language and culture at an early age while they still have a linguistic openness to easily learn a second language. Their adaptability, their lack of inhibition, and, above all, their ability to reproduce any sound accurately will help them learn a second language with great ease. We provide a unique learning context in which your children will learn at their own pace in a fun, genuine, French summer camp environment. 

Previous exposure to French is not required as learning will be differentiated according to the student's level – French beginner, intermediate and advanced.

The mornings of our campers will  consist of French classes. Students will be introduced to French language and culture using a playful but rigorous teaching approach. 

 

They will be working on the four skills of language:

  • Listening

  • Speaking

  • Reading

  • Writing

In the afternoon, students will engage in various activities such as theater, role playing, cooking, arts, music, STEM etc...
