Ooh là là - Summer 2018 will have ~
Two French Camps

Magicien d’Oz

The Wizard of Oz ~ original Franc-O-Fun French version!

Children ages 3-10 are invited to learn French in the land of Oz this summer– on a creative journey skipping along la Rue de Briques Jaunes (Yellow Brick Road) meeting les animaux (animals) on the farm and munchkins who will welcome them to a new and strange world.  French Campers will encounter the famous French artist, Claude  Monet, and his garden of  coquelicots (poppies) that will put them to sleep with their French lullabyes! All of our Franc-O-Fun garçons et filles campers will enjoy skipping with Dorothée, talking about their thoughts with Monsieur l'Epouvantail (Scarecrow), their heart with Monsieur d'Etain (Tinman) and their courage with Monsieur le Lion.!  These new friends will come to life and teach your children how to speak French in a way that makes you feel "home sweet home"!

Chez Pierre – Un Restaurant Français

French Cooking Camp

Calling all les petits chefs that would like to experience a French Cooking Extravaganza. Spend a week of preparing French desserts while learning to speak and sing and play in French. Each day they will sample their treats and serve their parents in a pretend French restaurant. They will learn vocabulary and phrases around shopping and preparing French gourmet desserts. This is for children ages 6-10. Oh là là - Bon Appétit

Our Summer French Camps, which began in 1995, have drawn hundreds of children from all over Fairfield County to summer sessions of intensive French learning and fun. What better way for children to speak, sing and breathe French! This tour de force is a highlight of the Franc-O-Fun program sweeping children up into a world of fantasy, effectively and drastically improving fluency in French in just one-two weeks time! We choose themes that are creative and magical, steeped in stories and simple play, providing useful vocabulary for our campers.

Brand new beginners to intermediate are bienvenue (welcome) - all are immersed in French with the use of puppetry, fairytale musical theatre, original song sign language, games, finger-play, arts & crafts and French Cooking ~ children ages 6 and older work as well on reading and writing French. Target vocabulary is very carefully crafted so that children are exposed repeatedly throughout the day to build retention and comprehension.

Original songs are written specifically for our students and the last day of camp, the French campers perform in a large-scale (costumes, scenery, music) program for their families – tout en français!!
