Have Fun Learning French and Exploring French Culture!
Bonjour! Does your camper want to learn or expand their French vocabulary while exploring the French-speaking world? In French Camp, campers will begin to build useful everyday vocabulary while developing basic listening, reading, writing, and conversational skills. After an initial exploration of France and its capital city (“The City of Lights”), campers will then “travel” through the French-speaking world and its many unique and colorful countries (Canada, Martinique, Senegal) to discover the rich diversity and esprit of their people and cultures.
French cooking, crafts, music, dance, games, and stories are incorporated into a kaleidoscope of daily activities that celebrate French culture, along with a special field trip to a French eatery in Old Town, Alexandria to highlight the week. Along the way, campers will create artifacts and journal entries that detail their experiences. Everyone knows that early childhood exposure can have a dramatic impact on later language acquisition. Come and join us this summer for a fun and exciting French adventure. Note: no prior knowledge of French necessary!
French Camp is directed by current SSSAS Upper School French Teacher, Mrs. Kimberly Scott. If you have any camp-specific questions, please contact Madame Scott at email@example.com or by telephone at 703-212-2915.
