Camp Structure: The in-person camp day varies between more structured activities (like crafts, science, and music) and free playtime for all age groups.
Camp des Lucioles includes daily nap/rest time in the afternoon.
Les Navigateurs virtual programming includes large and small group time, screen breaks, and ideas for offline activities.
Bilingual and Immersion Approaches: All FASPS camps are open to any child regardless of experience with French. While students aren’t expected to become fluent just from their camp experience, they can usually understand quite a bit and say a few words and phrases.
Bilingual camps (Camp des Lucioles, Les Navigateurs) include English interactions, and a gentle introduction to French.
For immersion camps (Camp d'été, Classe Aventure), all activities are led in French. For campers with little or no French experience, context, repetition, and peer support help them integrate quickly. Occasional English may be used to ensure everyone feels included.
