Join us during the school year at one of our One-Week Camps!

Our Camps have been designed to provide children with an immersive bilingual experience similar to The École’s regular school year program–with lots of fun. At our Flatiron District campus and the surrounding Madison Square Park and Peter’s Field, campers learn and practice both French and English through daily art, music, sports, theater, and many other workshops and activities.

Throughout the day, children are guided through workshops and activities by a camp team composed entirely of The École’s School Life assistants and teachers, and instructors from our after-school program partners. All are native speakers of French or English and all are deeply experienced in working with language learners of all levels. They ensure campers have the opportunity to improve their French and English language skills, at their own pace and in relaxed—yet enriching—settings.

We welcome all children aged 3 to 10 years old—both students of The École and neighborhood friends. There is no minimum level of French or English required to take part!

Daily Schedule

Maternelle: Nursery to Kindergarten

Our One-Week Camps are held at the Maternelle Building. The days begin at 8:30 a.m. with a morning welcome followed by the first activity, an outdoor recess (at Madison Square Park or on our rooftop, weather permitting) followed by a second activity. Then it’s time for lunch and quiet games, and–for our youngest campers–nap-time. The three afternoon workshop activities, just like those held in the morning, are run in French or English. A snack is provided in the afternoon. Parents can pick their children up between 4:45 p.m. and 5 p.m.

Please note that lunch will not be provided by the camp. Parents are required to pack lunch for their children and make sure the children have it with them at morning drop-off. Please do not pack any food containing peanut products, as The École is a peanut-free environment.
