This summer 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!

The program runs from Monday, June 27 to Friday, July 15 (no camp on Monday, July 4). You can register per week, per day, or half-day.

Our summer camp has been designed to provide children with a bilingual experience similar to The École’s regular school program—but with lots of additional summer fun. Every week, we propose a different theme, with a related field trip. At our Flatiron District campus and the surrounding Madison Square Park, campers learn and practice both French and English and discover the two cultures through daily art, music, theater, sports, and many other workshops and activities!

Our summer camp staff is composed entirely of The École’s Maternelle, Elementary, and After-School program teachers. All are native speakers in French or English and have extensive experience 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 and enriching settings.

Daily Schedule

Maternelle: Nursery to Kindergarten

Our Summer Camp for students attending Nursery, Pre-K and Kindergarten during the 2021-2022 school year is 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 child(ren) 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.

Children must be fully potty trained to attend our summer camp.
