The camp facilities offers all you need to have a great Basketball experience but you can also enjoy a sports hall, TV room, cafeteris, swimming pool, climbing wall etc.

Our sister company organizing the camp is SPORTS ELITE JEUNES. They have great experience in creating cultural, academic and sportive experiences for students around the globe! 


Your full immersion experience starts as soon as you arrive in the camp as most of the camp participants are French! Additionally all of our staff is French ensuring a dynamic learning process. 

International students will attend 3 hours of French from Monday to Friday in a morning schedule and sports training in the afternoon.

Join our Basketball trainings!

Students can make the most of their stay in France to improve their French knowledge by taking French lessons in the morning, and practicing basketball in the afternoon. The students join the participants on the intensive sports camp led by qualified monitors for:

  • Daily work in groups of levels and ages to improve passes, shootings, bounces, breaking free from one’s opponent, defense…
  • Discussions on the technique, free games;
  • Daily matches, tournaments;
  • Individual competition

Excursions and other activities are organized according to the participants' interests in the evening and at the weekend.


Accommodation on the Vichy campus on a full board basis.

Students live in student residences (from 2 to 3 beds per room) with shared facilities. French and international campers share the same room based on age and gender. It is possible to specify a person with whom to share the room. Full board accommodation is provided. The 4 meals of the day are balanced menus cooked by the chefs at the center.


A transfer is organized from Paris airport (Charles de Gaulle or Orly) to the Gare de Bercy, where the student joins other campers travelling by train to Vichy.
