Camp des Lucioles
Bilingual day Camp for Children 2–5 Years of Age
FASPS’s newest Summer Program is now 8 weeks! Camp des Lucioles (Fireflies Camp) is a French bilingual day camp that 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.

2024 Themes:

This summer, the Lucioles are exploring communities big, small and in between! Each session will feature a special visitor or event, and rising Kindergarten campers will go off-campus for one field trip per session.
