For 20 years we have been organizing immersion camps in the very fine “Carnot Campus” located in the town center, a stone's throw from the beaches.
The concept of personal development which has been made part of the educational approach of this program is highly prized by those who attend this summer camp with a maximum of 130 participants.

Students are housed on the “Carnot” summer campus, a 10-minute walk from the town center and sandy beaches.
The Campus, a listed historic building, offers living quarters with all facilities and accommodates some 130 students in a secure setting.
On site: classrooms, accommodation, canteen, pool, sports pitches, gardens and accommodation in dual occupancy rooms.
In addition, homestay is available for 13– to 15-year-olds.
For teens, the program in Cannes offers immersion in French in the sun and with a little more freedom with the “special permission” release form (see “security”).
On the program every week: A half-day excursion, a full day at the weekend, an afternoon sailing, but first and foremost a rolling program with a treetop adventure course, Lazer Quest, Aquasplash, Jump XL, bowling, sports tournaments, etc. 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.
In addition, for 16- and 17-year-olds:
Movies/McDonald's or beach/pizza and games, shows, discos on campus.
Kids and teens are supervised from their arrival at Nice Côte d’Azur airport, Antibes station or the campus reception. From this moment on, leaders will remain on-hand and will oversee permissions 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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
Intensive courses are aimed at students who want to make quick progress. They offer general French classes focused on acquiring the oral, written and grammar skills that are vital at each level. Pronunciation and French culture are also covered.
Depending on students’ level of knowledge and in accordance with the recommendations of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, teachers devise a weekly programme of more than eighteen hours to help students progress.
Thanks to the active teaching method developed by the Centre International d’Antibes, the teachers are able to hold their young students’ attention and engage them in exercises that work on written and oral expression and comprehension.
Our young students get involved in exciting educational activities which foster an enthusiasm for learning during their 3 hours and 45 minutes of classes each morning.
Everything is on-site: classrooms, accommodation, large self-service restaurant, mobile pool and outdoor sports pitches. Accommodation is in a twin room with a private bathroom (shower and toilets) shared by 2 rooms.
School shuttle buses provide transportation for supervised excursions or free time, subject to parental permission.
The campus is 1.5 miles from the town center and beaches.
For students wishing to have a fully immersive experience, host families offer a comfortable home and are eager to share their daily life.
Our families are carefully selected and inspected regularly. They offer single or twin rooms and host speakers of different languages
Students will be looked after all day by our activities team before returning to the care of their family in the evening.
