Our Mission

Le Camp d'Été is an extension program of Ecole Bilingue de Berkeley, providing a unique Preschool to 6th grade camp program that develops students into curious, confident and creative learners. Previous exposure to French language is not required. We offer a valuable experience for all children!

Cultural Immersion

We promote gaining firsthand understanding  and learning a new language in the most natural way possible to children: through play and hands on activities. They will hear, speak and learn the language in authentic everyday contexts.

Quality Staffing

All of our camp counselors are native speakers or have mastery of the French language and have extensive backgrounds in teaching and working with children at multiple age levels. 

Sports, Arts, and STEM

Our camps have a rich diversity of activities, field trips and  camp games each week, giving campers variety to keep them engaged and having as much fun as possible.
