About Bonjour NY:

The Bonjour NY French Summer Camp is designed so that children have an amazing and memorable experience that encourages their personal growth. Campers learn while playing and having fun in a stimulating and safe environment. The French language is used for all the activities, but it is not implemented as in a traditional language class. At the Bonjour NY French Summer Camp, we spend a maximum amount of time on outdoor activities.

Camp lasts nine full weeks and campers can sign up for one week, nine weeks, or anywhere in between (including non-consecutive weeks)! Our activities are theme-based, so each week is different; your child might visit an aquarium, enjoy lots of water-based activities and decorate a fishbowl during 20,000 Lieues Sous Les Mers (20,000 leagues under the sea) week and then come back the next week to see a clown show, participate in a carnival and play team-building games about laughter during La Semaine Rigolote (The Funny Week). Other themes include: La Forêt Magique (The Enchanted Forest), Fort Boyard (Fort Boyard, a French family TV show based on challenges), La Légende de Paris (The Legend of Paris), La Magie (Magic), Les Chevaliers de la Table Ronde (The Knights of the Round Table)and La Main Verte (The Green Hand).

Campers are immersed in the French language through workshops and activities designed to educate and entertain them while emphasizing interaction. They will embrace the francophone culture through activities designed to give them multiple ways to express their creativity and to learn and develop new skills. Activities include: visual and performing arts, games, dance, music, sports, outdoor and water activities as well as local field trips and much more!

The camp is open to children ages 3½ to 11. All children, including non-French speakers, are welcome to join. Campers are grouped according to their mastery of the French language. Most activities will be conducted in French.

We at Bonjour NY respect every camper’s individual rhythm and personality, and make sure everyone enjoys their summer in a laid back atmosphere.

Campers learn and practice their French while having fun and making friends. Children will go home tired and happy; and no, they are not bilingual quite yet, but they’ll be close!
