Summer Camps

French up your Summer with Summer Camps at Alliance Française de San Diego!

SUMMER CAMPS (July + August) are at the corner!

Our Camp Instructors for this summer are experienced with the French curriculum, so we offer a similar approach.

Daily schedule:
– Morning activities are focused on writing and reading through stories and age appropriate topics.
– We have a mid morning break.
– Lunch is at 11:30 followed by free + quiet time
– The afternoon is about easy going activities such as science, art and music to have fun while expending knowledge and vocabulary.
Each week has a theme chosen by the teacher to best match students’ interest.

Camps take place in our locals on Lusk blvd, and we also go play outside at an adjacent safe path/trail.
Our small ratio, about 1teacher/6students, allows for plenty of French interactions including 1-on-1 with the teacher so children can really practice their French and improve.
