A French immersion camp for teens in Cannes

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.

For teens aged 12 to 15 and 16 to 17

 After French classes: Snorkeling, a private beach, an excursion to Monaco, Aquasplash, sailing, pool games, parties on campus...and permission to leave the premises subject to parental approval. Our group leaders, who have experience of establishing a caring relationship with kids and teens but remain strict about monitoring curfews, are on-hand 24/7.
Over the last 10 years, some 10,000 kids and teens have attended our language camp in Cannes.
