    Basketball summer camp in France : Testimonials

    I had a great time at basketball camp! 


    I had a great time at basketball camp! 


    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.


    "Our daughter had a wonderful time over the summer practicing her language skills both at the French basketball camp in Vichy and the homestay in Spain. This was all coordinated by NACEL. It'll be a summer to remember!" - Mother Nisha


    I’d like to thank you for your follow up the day before and for taking care of Cherif’s accident on the camp. Again thank you & all Nacel team for your efforts & care during his stay.” Mother of Cherif E.,
