Summer Camp

The Institute offers summer language camps. The camps are advertised in Sioux Falls throughout the spring and also appear on this website.

French Language Camps for Kids 2014

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.

Off to France we go! Join us for a fun summer French Camp where we will be learning French while "traveling" around the beautiful city of Paris, looking at Art and the French culture. We will be studying la peinture (painting), la photographie (photography) and l’impression (screen printing) via French artists. Also, we will sing, laugh, dance, play games, swim, and create art, all in French. Join us for French and Art; a wonderful combination for the start of summer vacation.

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!"
