Summer Programs

Camp des Lucioles

Camp des Lucioles
for ages 2.5–5 years old

Introducing FASPS’ newest Summer Program – Camp des Lucioles (fireflies)! This 8-week French Bilingual Day Camp focuses on learning through play, discovery, school readiness (practicing school routines and vocabulary for the school year) and introduces students to French language through regular language workshops.

We will also focus on social-emotional learning, helping early learners 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.
