Program

Located in the very centre of Cannes, our summer language camp for 16 and 17 year olds is held on Campus Carnot, which is ideally situated for exploring this iconic French Riviera town.

The programme promotes full immersion in French language and culture, while offering students greater autonomy. It’s the perfect environment for teenagers seeking independence and looking to make new friends.

Mornings are for learning French, while afternoons are filled with a variety of activities: swimming in the pool, time at the beach, sailing, laser quest, excursions, treetop adventure courses and evening events on campus.

Prepare to enjoy a memorable experience! 


French classes

French classes in the morning (Standard course) have 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.


Accommodation

Students stay on Campus Carnot, which is a 10-minute walk from the town centre and the beaches. The campus, which is listed as an historic monument, offers a complete and safe living environment.

The facilities include classrooms, accommodation in double rooms, a restaurant, a swimming pool and sports pitches. 


Activities

The Cannes 16–17 summer camp is an activity programme designed for teenagers seeking independence and adventure.

Each week, the schedule features adrenaline-inducing activities such as laser quest, Jump XL trampolining and treetop adventure courses, followed by a fun half-day including opportunities to relax on the beach, go snorkelling or sail out to sea.

The weekends are all about escaping, with excursions to iconic destinations such as Nice and Monaco, or a chance to cool down with a day at the Aquasplash water park.

Evenings on campus are equally lively. Students can look forward to barbeques, McDonald’s, evenings on the beach, and film, disco, games and cabaret nights.

A day in Cannes

Cannes 

18 miles from the airport, Nice Côte d’Azur is an easy-going city that sits on long sandy beaches.

Students will get around on foot and can frequent the very fashionable “Croisette” as well as the pretty “Plages du midi” beaches which are less sophisticated but might be more to their taste. They will meet young French people of their own age.

FAQ

Why attend a French immersion camp in Cannes?

Cannes is a city where kids and teens can quickly find their bearings and make French friends on the beaches of La Bocca.
More than on the upmarket Croisette, it is on these beaches, a hang-out for French teens, behind the old port, that students will find the friendly and affordable environment favored by this age group. Leaders will never be far away.

Why choose the program “Essential Cannes”?

Choosing Cannes means choosing a rich language program that is a blend of theoretical French classes put into practice through role play modules with the local population.
As such, through these modules kids and teens will experiment with working towards a shared objective in addition to learning French. In so doing they will have developed confidence in their ability to have practical real-life interactions.

How old are participants on the “Essential Cannes” immersion program?

The program is open to 12- and 17-year-olds, although the majority of the teens on campus are aged 15-17..
Note that 16- and 17-year-olds can be given parent permission for a 1 a.m. curfew on Friday and Saturday nights.
