Children will learn French, immersed in a French-speaking environment, through games and fun activities. They will learn the same way they develop skills in their native language , by listening, watching, singing, playing, and expressing themselves.
The counselors are native French speakers who all have experience working with children and teaching French within a summer camp environment and/or are members of the faculty at the French International School during the school year. Some of our junior counselors are former EFIP students.
