Summer camps in France
Oh friends, what a horribly grey and rainy January this is shaping up to be. Thank God for hot yoga, cold champagne and books. I’m currently reading The Cursing Mommy’s Book of Days. The fact that I think this book is hilarious and spot on, should give you an indication of my current state of mind. So why don’t we turn our attention to summer… beautiful, warm and sunny summer!
I get a lot of questions about summer camps in France. Yes, they exist! Each French city or commune has a wide range of day-camp options – ranging from arts to sports, circus camps to equestrian camps, and so on. The challenge, of course, is finding those camps online and then deciphering the descriptions and enrollment procedures.
Just like in the US, most associations won’t have their summer camp information online until spring. But you can get a good sense for what the region has to offer by looking at what activities they had last year. In some cases you must be physically present to register, or call between certain times of day – so clearly, you have to be willing to wing it. We plan to choose a handful of our favorites and see what happens when we get there.
What I know for sure, is that it will be SUMMER and will probably be SUNNY.
