A Preschool to 5th Grade Bilingual Summer Camp

We are pleased to announce that Le Camp D’Été will be reopening this summer 2021! This year's camp will be very different from other years due to COVID-19 limitations but we will still have a great summer spending time together and learning in a fun environment while maintaining our rigorous safety protocols to keep our community safe! 

 

We are still finalizing the details regarding the content of the camp. However we want to share with you the broader points so you can plan accordingly. As always, the camp will consist of French in the morning (8:00am to 12:00pm), followed by afternoon activities in English (or nap and activities for preschoolers)

Our Mission


Le Camp d'Été is an extension program of Ecole Bilingue de Berkeley, providing a unique preschool to 5th grade bilingual program that develops students into curious, confident and creative learners. Children will learn and/or expand French skills in a nurturing and fun atmosphere on our campus in West Berkeley. Previous exposure to French language is not required. We offer a valuable experience for all children! 


Our Campus

Mini camp will take place in our preschool, which is located at our Lower School campus at 1009 Heinz Avenue in Berkeley.

 

Junior Camp will take place at our lower school campus from June 22nd to July 17th. From July 20th to July 31st Junior Camp will take place at our Middle School Campus, located 2 blocks away at 901 Grayson Street in Berkeley.

 

Our lower and middle school campuses are located in beautiful West Berkeley. Our lower school houses all of the classes from preschool through fifth grade, as well as a library (open to parents!), science lab, multi-purpose room, art and music rooms, a garden, as well as a small gym with gymnastics and tumbling equipment. The main playground is home to a large play structure, and lots of room to run and play. The preschool classes have their own yard and play structure. Our middle school houses a library, science lab, organic garden, and a large playground with basketball courts and ample room to run and play.

 

 

Please note: Ecole Bilingue is a fully functioning school, and as such, summer maintenance is required to update and upkeep our facilities. Therefore there will be intermittent, light construction taking place at times during the camp. Please know that we will work diligently to minimize impact to our programs.
