 Activities

Our French native teachers welcome all children in a happy, caring, and relaxed atmosphere.


Morning activities are focused primarily on language skills (reading  and listening comprehensions, writing and speaking ).

  • French immersion group will only focus on French language
  • Introduction to French language and culture group will have a time dedicated to learn some French basics then dedicate the rest to work on their English skills. 


We combine direct instruction, small-group work, and one-on-one learning in a way that works for your child. Our teachers respect every individual rhythm and personality, and make sure that everyone enjoys their camp activities. 
Every group will also have a mathematics reviews time in the morning. For half an hour every morning, we will do mental operations (additions, substractions) and some problem solving to help kids get ready for the next school year.   


Please  bring a packed lunch and an afternoon snack. There are a fridge and a microwave available to reheat your kid's lunch if necessary. 


Afternoon activities are designed to give the children multiple ways to express their creativity and to learn and develop new skills. 
Afternoon activities include visual arts, science experiments,  games and more surprises! We are working on ways to include regular outdoor play but it remains to be confirmed. 
Both camps will have the same activities but entirely in French for the French immersion and in English with introduction of some French vocabulary for the Introduction to French Language and Culture camp. 


Age restriction

Children ages 4 y 9 mo - 12 years old are eligible to register for camp. We are limiting registration to children entering  K - 6th grades

Financial Assistance

We know that for some families, the cost of attending Summer Camps can be a financial burden that they might not be able to afford. At L’Alliance Française de San Francisco we have different tiers of pricing for our camp program for families earning less than 80% of the median rate of income, based on data from 2020.

We can only offer 2 specific rates for each session on a "first-come, first-serve" basis, giving priority to children who have not already received it already the same calendar year. 

For  2021, the limits are : 

Household Size

2 people

3 people

4 people

5 people

MAXIMUM INCOME


$82,000



$92,250



$102,500



$110,700



In order to be considered for financial assistance, you may request a meeting with the Executive Director Noëmie Herail to present your proof of revenue. Contact her by email at noemie@afsf.com.

Please keep in mind that while you may have received financial assistance previously, this does not automatically ensure an award this year.

REGISTRATION FOR A CAMP INDICATES THAT YOU HAVE READ AND AGREE TO COMPLY WITH THE ALLIANCE FRANCAISE OF SAN FRANCISCO'S CANCELLATION POLICY.

THIS POLICY IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE. ALL REGISTERED CAMPERS WILL BE NOTIFIED OF ANY CHANGES.

PAYMENT INFORMATION

The $100 deposit per child per session, due at the time of registration in order to secure your camper’s spot in camp, is a non-refundable deposit, barring medical issues (see below).

WHY DO WE HAVE THIS POLICY?

When we reserve a spot for you, we are prohibiting others from signing up, as we have limited space available. There are no camp sick-day credits.

REFUND POLICY

First, we would like to encourage you to simply move to another session so your child can still experience one of our camps. However, we understand that life happens, things come up and you may need to cancel altogether. To do so, please call or email us as soon as possible.

If you need to cancel for any reason and would like a partial refund or transfer, you must notify camps@afsf.com,   noemie@afsf.com, and  afsf@afsf.com at least 30 days in advance of your selected session.


MEDICAL REASONS FOR CANCELLATION 

We understand that medical issues may arise over the course of the year or just as your child is set to attend camp.  Please call us as soon as possible to inform us of your need to cancel. Cancellation requests due to illness or accident prior to the camp session start date require a physician’s written verification. Upon receipt of verification, we will issue a full refund.  If your child is sick and there is time and room, we will work with you to switch your camper to a later session.


SWITCHING SESSIOns

Switching from one session to another is definitely possible, though it depends on your timing. If you decide you want to transfer to another session, and spots are available in that session, you’ll need to pay a $50 transfer fee. Requests to switch sessions must be made in writing to angela@afsf.com or camps@afsf.com and must be made prior to 30 days out from session.

Registration is only transferable during the same calendar year from original camp registration date.

If clarification on this policy is needed or if  you have any questions please feel free to email us at angela@afsf.com or camps@afsf.com  .

TRANSFERs

If you need to transfer your registration to someone else for the whole session, partial transfer are not available at any time, you must notify us and do so prior to 3 days out from session start date. There will be a $50 transfer processing fee. Cancellations and transfer requests must be in writing by email to camps@afsf.com.

You cannot transfer your registration to a session next year or to a following season. Registrations can only be transferred within the same calendar year.

We reserve the right to cancel a session date if participation numbers are not adequate. You may select an alternative session date, or you may request a full refund of tuition paid. Cancellations of sessions will occur a minimum of one week prior to the session.
