French Language Camps for Kids 2013
All French Camp classes are taught by instructors with native or near-native proficiency in French; classes take place on the campus of Augustana College. With a commitment to high quality second-language instruction, French Camp classes must have a minimum of five students and will not exceed a maximum of fifteen students. The Language Institute thus reserves the right to cancel camp classes if the minimum enrollment is not met. Contact the Institute for additional information or to register your child.

Parent Reviews on the 2010 French Language Camp
"French Camp was very interactive and filled with hands-on activities. The teachers were joyous and my girls looked forward to coming every day!"
"N. [my child] came home each day excited to tell me what he did at French Camp. I especially liked that he would jump out of bed in the morning anxious to get back to camp."
"French Camp was, of course, fun and educational. More importantly, it was a week my daughter will remember for a lifetime!"
