Nacel organizes summer Basketball camps in France of one to two weeks in June, July and August.


Every year we welcome international students looking forward to improve their language level while perfecting their basketball techniques during the summer. We offer a full linguistic and sports experience in Vichy, France, where lessons are given by professional teachers and professional certified coaches in a vast range of sports. The camp facilities offers all you need to have a great Basketball experience but you can also enjoy a sports hall, TV room, cafeteria, 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.

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.


During the weekend (if they stay for more than a week), campers participate in activities, swimming, games, town visit, parties etc. or take part in a day excursion in a theme park.


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.


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

  • Departure from Paris to the camp: around midday (we advise early flight arrivals the same day or arrivals a day earlier)
  • Arrival in Paris from the camp: late afternoon (we advise very late flights the same day or departure the day after)

The train schedule is confirmed 6 weeks before departure. Parents can drop-off their child directly at the camp. In this case, arrival must be between 3pm and 4.30pm the first day and departure by 11am on the last day. 
An overnight stay in Paris may be booked on an individual basis (night in multiple room + dinner + breakfast = around 75 Euros).

I met new friends and played a lot with them. Evening contests were my favorites. I really loved them! I also liked when we went to the amusement park too, everybody. together. Yeah, It was very cool

I went with my friend Pau to the camps in France and we had fun together. The guys on the team were very nice to us and when we asked them to speak more slowly, they did it. We hope to come back next summer in July and see the same kids again, but if we meet other kids, that's okay too.
