Note: there are currently no 2017 French Twin Cities Day Camps scheduled. Please visit our French Adventure Day Camps pages to learn about opportunities in Bemidji, Minn. 

Twin Cities Day Camps are a great introduction to language, and a wonderful precursor to our overnight programs. Offered in partnership with local school districts, these programs are held at various locations throughout the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area. Utilizing our trademark teaching methods, Twin Cities Day Camps include art, music, games and snacks to introduce the youngest learners to language and culture. 

Twin Cities Day Camps are offered in partnership with local schools and school districts. The schedule is set each summer once school districts finalize their own summer community education schedules.
