Bonjour NY is a premier French speaking camp located in the heart of NYC for children ages 3.5 to 11 from beginner French learner to fluent French speaker.

Imagine a summer where your child learns how to bake bread à la française, plays soccer with a counselor from Senegal, can’t stop laughing while playing le chat qui rit, encounters des tigres and des lions at the Bronx Zoo, wishes a new best friend a hearty bon appétit before lunch, decorates a crown fit for a king or queen during Chevaliers de la Table Ronde week, cools off and splashes around with friends at the pool, teaches you his or her new favorite song “Aux Champs-Élysées” and puts on a spectacle for all to see how much fun we had!

Welcome to Bonjour NY Camp!
