The goal of our French camp consists of introducing the French language through day-to-day activities: greetings, colors, fruits, and days of the week, to name a few.
Mornings will focus on the acquisition of the French language. The afternoons will consist of various activities including games, arts, crafts, sports, singing, and reading. The program will also help the young campers gain social skills.
Here is a glimpse of our French summer camp activities:

  • Math: one-on-one correspondence, recognizing numbers, and counting in French.
  • Fine Motor Skills: using a pencil, learning how to write letters, and drawing.

Summer Camp Activities
Here is a glimpse of our weekly program for summer camp activities:

 

Monday: On-campus activities and French Classes

PercussionsStudents will learn about the basics of rhythm, music, and playing in a group while exploring new percussion instruments from around the world, with an emphasis on hand drums. Every week there is a different lesson plan targeting self-expression, international sounds, theatrical music elements and there’s always room for games and improv drum play! Some weeks will involve movement, song and the creation of percussion instruments. S.O.D.E School of Performing Arts is a mobile Performing Arts School that offers dance, music, theater and musical theater classes taught by professional artists. Our goal is to provide industry standard programs in hopes of shaping young performers as they grow through the arts.

Art Class: Get ready for a colorful adventure into the art world this summer at Ecole du Soleil! Creative Creatures & Co. will be at LILA every Monday this summer to bring you amazing art projects from clay creatures, work with vintage photography tools, make palette knife tropical bird paintings, learn all about printmaking or play with watercolor and oil resits. Each day of the camp, artists will discover a new art field including Painting, Drawing, photography, Ceramics, Design and more! Be with us as we explore colorful materials, learn to use the most imaginative art tools, and get a little messy along the way (aprons will be provided for those wanting to stay paint free!). Campers will walk away with a serious amount of smiles, creativity overflow and a desire to continue discovering their new found talents.

Monday afternoon French classesDesigned to teach the fundamentals of the French language (and/or to maintain the knowledge of French), the classes take place four times a week for two periods of 60 minutes each and are taught by accredited French teachers. The objective of this program is to introduce children to the French language and culture at an early age, when they still have a linguistic openness to easily learn a second language.

The curriculum promotes the development of speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills. The classes are designed for both beginners and intermediate French speakers.

 

Tuesday: On-campus activities and French Classes

Improv: Improv is a type of theater where the actors use improvisational acting techniques to perform spontaneously. Improvisers will use the audience to create dialog, setting, and plot. Improv is a great tool to help young performers break out of their shell, build communication skills, create self esteem, and all around assist in social settings. Every week will have a different focus and students will get to explore miming, character work and Theater Sports.  Younger students will participate in creating theatrical arts and crafts too!

Soccer: Soccer Pro Zone will hold soccer lessons for all levels! Student will be split into groups, learn new skills, apply and master the and have fun plying games!
