Summer is the time for new experiences, new people and new places. What best that learning a new language while making new friends? Make your summer count and join us to have fun in French!
During school breaks, the French American Academy organizes camps both for our students and the neighborhood children who wish to learn some French language and culture. This summer, both New Milford and Jersey City campuses offered unique and diverse activities to keep our campers happy and engaged, en français, bien sûr!
In New Milford, children improved their French while exploring Arts from the dawn of ages to the very contemporary and most avant-garde trends. Children made their very own masterpieces based on Prehistoric or Abstract Art. They used various supports and technics like charcoal, pastels, paints or clay while learning about French Impressionist artist and Tribal Arts.
In Jersey City, we learned French through different themes such as Art & Nature where children used recycled items to create funny faces, (re)painted Les coquelicots of Monet and gardened to celebrate nature.
They built parachutes and boats during the Young Engineers weeks.
And, of course, they danced ballet and HipHop during our Musical weeks. They learned about all kinds of instruments and even played a little of violin as well.
They cooked, they sang and did sports during the Healthy week as well. And went to the park, laughed, jumped, played with the sprinklers and made so many new Friends!
At the end of August and only on New Milford campus, our coach will also organize a week of Soccer Camp. This will definitely give a head start to our soccer team who plays in the AYSO league while getting enough energy to get started on a brand new school year.
Who thinks that when and the end of the school year June come, we are sad to see our students leaving the school to have new adventures elsewhere, could not be more wrong! Because we know we will have our own extraordinary journey with some older and new friends learning new things, speaking French with our energetic Summer Teachers in a cool, relaxed and fun atmosphere.
We are so happy that our bilingual school stays open all year long to meet new children, welcome our students looking for entertaining activities during the breaks and giving the opportunity to a largest crowd to discover a foreign language.
Vivement l’été prochain!
