Antibes-Juan les Pins is perhaps the most famous resort on the Cote d’Azur, located 20km from Nice and 12km from Cannes. The town is a perfect picture-postcard seaside resort and a wonderful destination for children and young students! The historic old town of Antibes has a well-preserved medieval quarter, with charming alleyways filled with cafés and shops. The other interesting neighbourhood is Juan-les-Pins, which is famous for its long white sand beaches.
Our summer camp is located on two sites. We have a campus in a quiet, residential area of the town, surrounded by gardens. The other campus is located on the edge of a pine forest. Both of the sites have an on-site swimming pool, sports grounds, a TV room and a cafeteria, in addition to all of the classrooms and the dormitories.
The Summer Camp for children aged 8-12 years is open in July and August every year and consists of 20 general French classes, specifically designed and geared towards this age group. Native, fully-qualified teachers use a variety of games, inspiring exercises and activities in the lessons to encourage the children to speak French and at the same time develop their confidence, their inter-personal skills and their communication skills. The main idea is to encourage the young students to develop an interest for the language which will help them when they return home, as well as to offer a wonderful all-inclusive holiday in Antibes, with a programme of fully-supervised, exciting activities and sports!
The campus accommodation provides spacious and well-equipped bedrooms for 2-4 students of a similar age and same gender, with shared bathrooms. Single rooms can be requested at an additional cost. The bed-linen is provided, but students will need to bring their own towels. All of the meals are served on the campus in a buffet style and during the weekend excursions students receive a picnic lunch. The group leaders also live on the campus and are available all around the clock, including at night. Please remember to mention any special dietary requirements or allergies at the time of your booking.
The French lessons take place in the mornings and in the afternoons and evenings there is a full programme of supervised activities, visits and excursions, especially for young students aged 8-12 years old. The timetable includes activities such as: games, swimming, talent shows, dance evenings on-site, a barbecue or themed meal on campus, organised sports and tournaments and afternoons at the beach. There are excursions to the zoo, the water park and to local cities such as Nice and Monaco.
There is 24-hour supervision, providing a safe secure environment on campus, with full care and support available. The staff also live on-site and are available around the clock. None of the students are permitted to leave the campus grounds, unless accompanied by a group leader.
A return transfer service, on arrival and departure, is included in the programme from Nice airport, or from Antibes train station.
