Our leaders, whilst accustomed to a close relationship with teens, are still strict on monitoring curfews and are on-hand 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. See also
Antibes "Sailing" and
Antibes “Essential". These programs are also on offer for day students.
French classes in the morning are attended by no more than 15 students per class.
Teachers prioritize a fun environment that is conducive to developing oral skills so everyone can gain in confidence.
Intensive classes for small groups are held on two afternoons each week for a surcharge.
Surrounded by greenery, the campus offers classrooms, a self-service restaurant, a swimming pool and sports fields. Spacious rooms with shower and sink accommodate a maximum of 3 students per room, with shared toilets on the floor. A shuttle service is available to take students to the beaches or the center of Antibes.
This “French with dance and fitness classes” summer camp includes two hours of dance from Monday to Thursday with your partners from this pop-up dance company.
On the program every week: Participants will work on a choreography and perform it at a cabaret show on campus on Thursday with a yoga session on Friday evening to relax after a week's work. Moreover, “dancers” will be included in the general programs on-campus. Leaders are on-hand 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and organize pool games, host parties and take them on trips to the beach.
At the weekend (for 2-week bookings), a full-day excursion is planned to a site of interest in the Côte d’Azur.
Kids and teens are supervised from their arrival at Nice Côte d’Azur airport, Antibes station or the campus reception. From that moment on, the team of leaders will remain on-hand and will oversee permission to be off campus.
A team of leaders is on-hand 24 hours a day.
Our leaders are special points of contact for our students and help everyone to integrate well in that little society that is a campus or school.
Our leaders with their zest for life, consistent presence and the sense of security they give teens, are a key factor in the success of the camp.
On our campuses, we have strict organizational systems in place in accordance with specific standards: a center director (coordinates all staff), a director of learning (manages the teaching team), a director of activities (manages the team of leaders), a deputy director of activities, security staff on the different floors of the residence when boarders are present and at night.
Strict monitoring of comings and goings!
Leaders record details of any students entering or leaving the premises and ensure that parental permission is complied with and that everyone gets home, leaving nothing to chance.
At night, both the director and leaders sleep on-site and night security are on shift from 7:30 p.m.
In the daytime a free shuttle bus service connects the campuses to the town center or beaches. The activities of our kiosk comply with European safety standards.
No permission to leave the residence.
Free to go into town or to the beach after activities until dinner at 7:30 p.m.
Permission can be granted for a 10 pm curfew from Monday to Thursday and a 1 am curfew on Friday and Saturday evenings.
Antibes, 11 miles from the Nice Côte d’Azur airport is an upmarket seaside resort where students can get around the town center and sandy beaches on foot.

Dancing is a means of conveying emotion by moving our bodies. With this program you will share your emotions and your passion for dance in an international setting with young people of the same age.
We offer a modern jazz dance class. From Monday to Thursday participants will work on a choreography that will be performed on Thursday night at the cabaret show on campus. The Friday will be spent doing yoga.
We ask students taking part in the dance class to bring indoor dancing shoes.
You need to have practiced dance for at least one year prior to taking part in the program.
The dance class will be taught by a qualified dance teacher.
Depending on their language level, assessed by means of an entrance test on the Monday they arrive, students have 3 hours of French lessons every day . Classes use an active teaching method to foster young students’ enthusiasm for learning.
Part one: 2 hours of traditional classes
These standard French courses for teenagers help students to work on four skills (reading, speaking, writing and listening):
Grammar, pronunciation and French culture are also covered alongside these skills, in accordance with the recommendations of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
Part two: 1 hour of oral activities
This hour-long part of the class, which is more active , light-hearted and fun , is aimed at helping students to fall in love with French . Each teacher plans oral activities that complement the first part of the class to encourage interaction and help the young students gain in confidence.
The campus is 2.5 miles from the town center and beaches. School shuttle buses provide transportation for supervised excursions or to bring them back from any free time agreed by parents.
Located in a conservation area, this huge 9-acre modern campus built on the edge of a large pine forest offers fully equipped living quarters.
Next to the campus's central square, in the boarding house, students are housed in threes in spacious en-suite rooms with toilets on each floor.
