2017 Summer French Camp
for campers 4-12 years old

June 19-23 & June 26-30
Sponsored by the Alliance Française of Milwaukee

Madison’s French Camp for Youth was founded in 1999 by a native-born Frenchwoman. Designed for children ages 4-12, Madison’s French Camp for Youth teaches French through various themes from the Francophone world.  Based on interactive stories, French Camp uses songs, crafts, games, snack time, and role play to develop interest, instill confidence, and provide opportunities for campers of any language level. No previous background in French is required.

JUNE 19-23  Bon Appetit! 

Miam! Miam!  That’s how you say “YUM” in French.  And that’s exactly what your camper will be saying this week.  We’ll be making, tasting, and talking about all the culinary goodies that come along with speaking French.  We’ll use authentic French recipes for things like crepes, tartes, choux à la crème and will perhaps even seek out recipes for other favorites.  The French House has a great history of French cuisine, and we think it’s never too early to develop a taste for one of France’s finest exports: its delicious food!

JUNE 26-30 
Les Petits Scientifiques!  

From Marie Curie to Louis Pasteur and beyond, join us in exploring the lives of famous scientists from France! We’ll look at their amazing discoveries as well as perform some hand-on “experiments” of our own. Through songs, crafts, games, and an interactive story, who knows?  Maybe the next Nobel prize winner will get started here!

Registration cost per week:

$235  Morning session (8:45 a.m. – 1 p.m), or
$305  Full day (8:45 a.m. – 4 p.m.) open to campers ages 6 and up.

To find the French House click here. Parking around the French House is extremely limited. You can drop off at our address, 633 North Frances Street (the last house on Frances, just off of Langdon St.). Drop offs can also happen at the end of Howard Place (put 642 Howard Place into your GPS, look towards the lake & the large red brick house is the French House). If you need to park for a while, unless you are very lucky, it’s best to use the France/Lake Street Ramp (just south of State Street).
