The 2020/21 Experience at French International Language Camps
We understand the parents concern about the Coronavirus. We are following the situation day after day. For the time being, our summer program is taking place as scheduled. This summer at camp we will be following all the recommended procedures to keep everyone safe.
Of course, we know that committing to a summer program in the uncertainty of the pandemic can feel daunting. So we are making two commitments to you:
Your deposit and any pre-paid tuition is fully refundable until April 15, 2021 If ILC is unable to run our on-campus programs this summer due to the pandemic, we will refund your tuition I hope these accommodations encourage you to apply early and take advantage of this exclusive offer. If you have any questions about our application process or how we’re keeping health and safety at the center of our summer program planning, please reach out to us: +33 7 78 84 76 77
However we are aware that many children cannot travel to us in France this summer. We don't want you to miss out though so we have created a new VIRTUAL CAMPS program where your child can come along with us on a TOUR DE FRANCE from the safety of their own room. While International Language Camps is well-known for its fun-filled Summer Camps, our team has worked tirelessly to move quickly and begin offering virtual programs. We are now ready to provide families with “Virtual Fun French and English Camps” of a high quality content for their children while they can’t join us this summer in Megève.View recent COVID-19 updates from French International Language Camps
Yes it sounds like a dream—learning French, nestled in the Alps—and for the students that attend, there are no doubt lots of pinch-me moments. That said, there’s more afoot here than glorious vistas and great food (though there are indeed both of those). Students come together with peers from around the world for the purpose of language learning, thought that’s just the tip of the iceberg. They learn about themselves, and their place in the world; they have a first-hand experience of what it means to be a global citizen within a truly global learning environment. Given that French is the one language that all the participants share, there’s an immediacy that comes with using it, and an imperative not simply to make sure that verbs and subjects agree, but to make yourself understood to others. It’s an adventure, though one that, for many reasons, will have a substantive and lasting effect. An expressed goal of the program is to shape and influence young people to create a better world. Truly, if there's one thing that could do that, it's programs like this one: bringing young people together from disparate cultures to share some time, ideas, and fun. All sessions are impeccably run, out of impeccable facilities in the shadow of Mont Blanc.

we are happy to announce that Summer Camp Registration is now open for 2021! following our ‘special’ experience with the camp this summer in Megeve we are very happy to announce that we are already preparing the next winter and summer camp. We learned a lot this summer and the camp was a great success, different from the other years and adapted fully to a covid sitution .We strictly respected all the measures that were imposed and the children enjoyed the mountains even more . Specially after a lockdown they were finally able to run and do activities freely outside. Mountains proved to be the best place to be in such a situation. Big spaces, outdoor activities, fresh air… all this and more made our campers very happy. We are very proud of what we have achieved this summer. We proved that it was possible to organize a camp in safe conditions. We also had quite a few ‘virtual’ campers and we are planning on organizing a virtual camp again next summer for those who might not be able to come.
This year, we are introducing brand new programming during our 5 weeks program. Allow me to introduce you to just a few examples of our new and dynamic events and activities this summer:
• During some Weeks, campers will have the opportunity to receive tennis, rock climbing or golf lessons from a premier coaching company and intensive French Extra lessons.
I believe that the Summer Camp experience can have a life-long impact on a child. Camp provides a child with opportunities to become more independent, foster their self-esteem, make new friends, learn new skills, and develop an appreciation for the natural world. Our traditional approach combined with a modern facility and a fully qualified, dynamic staff team ensures the highest quality experience for every ILC’s camper.
At the end of a week of ILC camp, I want every child to say, "I loved my counselors, I had a ton of fun, I made a lot of new friends from all over the world, I would love to come back and actually it all happened in French!"
Thank you for your interest in ILC. I look forward to meeting you in person and answering any questions that you have.
More details about accommodations: we consider the quality of the accommodations (4*hotel) to be an essential condition for the well being of our campers, and therefore our programs are organized solely in top quality hotels.

We are the only camp organizers in France to propose accommodations of this quality.

Dear parents and campers,
following our ‘special’ experience with the camp this summer in Megeve we are very happy to announce that we are already preparing the next winter and summer camp. We learned a lot this summer and the camp was a great success, different from the other years and adapted fully to a covid sitution .We strictly respected all the measures that were imposed and the children enjoyed the mountains even more . Specially after a lockdown they were finally able to run and do activities freely outside. Mountains proved to be the best place to be in such a situation. Big spaces, outdoor activities, fresh air… all this and more made our campers very happy. We are very proud of what we have achieved this summer. We proved that it was possible to organize a camp in safe conditions. We also had quite a few ‘virtual’ campers and we are planning on organizing a virtual camp again next summer for those who might not be able to come.
We have introduced a new cancellation policy due to a covid. All the students enrolled will be fully reimbursed in case:
– we have to cancel the program
– you cannot leave your country or enter France due to covid governemental orders
– you cannot leave your home area in France due to covid governemental orders
– covid health problems
At the heart of the French Alps, in the prestigious village of Megève, the children spend an unforgettable summer surrounded by the beautiful mountains. EXCELLENCE, SAFETY AND FUN!
What better way for them to engage in numerous sports and artistic activities than to be with young people from all over the world, to LIVE a foreign language? In the morning, they take language classes in small groups and by levels. The goal is to learn while playing, having fun and creating thanks to language, theater and civilization workshops. The afternoon is dedicated to different activities: golf, rafting, climbing, fishing, yoga or tree climbing. Once a week, the campers have the opportunity to explore the glacier Mer de Glace on the Mont Blanc or visit Annecy and its famous lake.
The excellence of the program, the great experience and the safety of every child have made International Language Camps famous. From the reception at the airport – at the families’ convenience – until the end of the stay, the camp team is available at all times for parents to keep them informed about the well being of their children.
An exciting and fun opportunity to learn not only a language but also to live with children from other countries and learn about their cultures.
In the morning, we have language workshops but forget about school! With small groups, every camper participates and gets involved! They have language lessons but also a theater workshop and a civilization workshop where they can practice the language in a fun way. On Saturdays it’s show time! The campers put on a show that they’ve been preparing all week and it’s amazing to see how much fun they can have speaking a language they weren’t confident in at the beginning of the week. We have about 50% of the children that come from all over the world to learn French but also 50% of French children who come to learn English. This is a unique opportunity for the children learning French to actually practice the language with native speakers their own age.
But it’s not all lessons and workshops. The afternoons are for fun, exciting activities. Being in the mountains and in the world-renowned village of Megève, there are so many activities to enjoy: rafting, climbing, swimming, hiking…. And these are just the obvious ones – every year we add new surprises.
On Sundays, we have a field trip to amazing places such as the glacier ‘Mer de Glace’ on the Mont Blanc mountain range or the wonderful Lake Annecy – the Venice of the Alps.
Our camps are so much fun and our dedicated multi-national team adds that extra touch. We like to keep things small and you can be assured that your child will be looked after as if in a big family. We are very proud of the excellence of our program and our staff.
Next year we will welcome campers from July 4th to August 7th, 2021.
We will propose 3 differents programs:
– the Fun program for 6 to 9 year olds
– the Adrenaline program for 10 to 13 year olds
– the Mont-Blanc program for 14 to 17 year olds
This year, camper can also choose options such as tennis, golf, Climbing and Dance lessons with a professional or Intensive language lessons in private lessons.
