How will I study French?

This summer camp in France is a real French immersion because coaches, teachers and most campers are French (90%). International students are able to join the French campers during the sports practices and the social activities planned inside the camp. International participants are required to have a minimum French level (2 years of French studies) so that they can interact with the other campers and understand what the coach says.

On the first day, students take a level test so that teachers can adapt their course to the students' language level. Levels usually go from low intermediate to high intermediate. All lessons are taught by qualified native French teachers. Students attend 3 hours of French every afternoon during weekdays.

Excursions and other activities are organized 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.


    Our camps are located in Vichy and Mâcon. Full board.

    Campers are hosted in different campuses depending on the chosen sports camp. 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 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 or to Mâcon. 

    • 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).

    The experience as a whole was fantastic, what I enjoyed most was all the new people I got to meet.

    I loved the riding camp! The horses were super well cared for and the trainers were very kind. 

    Vanesa L. (15)

    I learned a lot in the French courses with my classmates. We did everything together. We studied, played and ate.

    My parents came with me and dropped me off at tennis camp. The first few minutes I felt very sad. But when I got to my room and met Marie, everything changed. I will always be grateful for her kindness. The camp director was also very attentive to me and the other international students in the French courses. The courses were in groups. The French teacher was very kind, attentive and patient. Days at the camp go by very quickly! Next week is my second week at camp and I don't want to leave!

    Erin D. (13)

    Excellent basketball camp! I speak little French, if I hadn't needed the courses, I would have booked only the basketball camp program without the courses. It's much more fun to play than to study, but I still learned new phrases!
