The most popular language camp in France

Since 1985 we have been organizing language camps in Antibes and now, from one generation to the next, our students are taking home with them an address book of friends for life.

These kids and teens come to us to learn French or improve, share games around the pool or try their hand at sailing for the first time.

In addition to all of that, they return home with an affection for France, good memories and a new, broader perspective on the world.
