Kiddos Summer Camps 2016 (K-5th)
The EFBA summer camp is unique in the Bay Area. It is a rare opportunity for the children to experience an unforgettable summer in French.
Although French is the only language used during the camp, non-native speakers are welcome! Our ratio is 1 adult for 5 children, which ensures the French immersion. The language is a tool for super fun activities, games and exciting encounters that will satisfy the discovery needs, leisure, creativity, imagination, and socialization of each child. Your children will become explorers, adventurers, artists and researchers in a relaxed and fun atmosphere.
The camp will run from 8:30am to 3pm with extended care available for an additional fee between 7am-8:30am and between 3pm-6pm.
This inovative summer program is part of the EFBA yeararound model. For non-native speakers, visual, audio and other supports are prepared in advance by our educators in order to facilitate the French immersion experience.
Our camp counselors are specifically trained to make the children feel comfortable through techniques that ensure that each of them finds his/her place in the groupe and has a great time! The EFBA camp counselors come directly from France or other French-speaking countries. They all are BAFA-certified (Brevet d’Aptitude aux Fonctions d’Animateur) or equivalent. They are responsible, enthusiastic and have a mastery of the French language, leading the children to express themselves naturally in French. And it works! The children improve their French language skills and develop their biliteracy while they are having fun.
