Summer Fun in French Camps for Toddlers:
Les Petits Champions

Welcome to the Summer Games at FIAF!

This summer, your toddlers will learn, laugh and have fun in French with the Summer Games. Each week’s camp will focus on a city that has hosted the Games, with lessons themed around the geography and the culture of the hosting country, a type of game, and other related aspects of the Games. From the creation of the Olympics in Athens to the future Games in Los Angeles, children will make stops in Greece, Mexico, Australia, China, Brazil, Japan, France and the United States. They will learn about the symbols, values and mascots of each host city, a vast range of vocabulary related not only to sports, but also to food, numbers, shapes and colors, animals, architecture, music, clothing, and more. Best of all, they will learn how to work together and collaborate just like the champion teams will do in Paris this summer! See you at the Games!

Whether your child is brand new to French or already fluent, these day camps will help them learn and improve their French while having fun and making new friends.
