Camp des Lucioles
In-person Camp for Students 2–5 Years of Age*
*For campers younger than 2½, priority will be given to current FASPS students / families.

Introducing FASPS’s newest Summer Program: Camp des Lucioles (Fireflies Camp)! This seven-week French bilingual day camp focuses on learning through play, discovery, and school readiness activities (practicing school routines and vocabulary for the school year), while introducing students to the French language through regular language workshops. In addition, we will also focus on social and emotional learning (SEL) by helping our campers develop social skills through everyday interactions. Each week we will present a new theme that invites campers to explore their world through activities, projects, and language adapted to each group’s age level.

2021 Themes

Session 1: June 28 – July 16, 2021 (No camp on July 5 in observance of Independence Day.)
