Getting ready for Summer Number 12!

Dear Friends and Families:

Founded in 2010 as a French after-school program, Bonjour NY has evolved into a thriving summer day camp with three languages and three locations in NYC. We have now weathered two pandemic summers, and are are so proud to have been able to provide your children with a safe, happy, and social summer after two difficult school years. Camp was necessarily a bit different these last two summers, but with a lot of careful planning and care on our part, your children had fantastic experiences in a nurturing, fun, fully immersive environment.

This summer will be no different! With a new location in TriBeCa, we are able to offer our programming to an even wider community of NYC families who are looking for language immersion with rich content and a wildly fun time.

Gabriel Torres and Awantz St. Fleur, our core team, along with our experienced camp directors and senior counselors, welcome you back to summer. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us with questions or just to say hello. We are grateful to continue to expand our Bonjour | Hola | Ni Hao NY Community!

Your Bonjour NY | Hola NY | Ni Hao NY Team

“Milo and Esme went to Ria’s French camp last summer and loved it — they met kids form all over the city, played new games, learned about French culture from many different French speaking countries, and of course, spoke French! We’re looking forward to doing it again this year. Merci, Ria!”


Great Staff, Great Camp

Counselors play a key role in making our camps safe, fun, and exciting for campers. With a staff of 1 counselor to every 5 campers, Bonjour | Hola | Ni Hao NY has an excellent ratio to provide each camper with the attention and care they deserve.

From our experienced and talented year-round team, to our summer staff made up of teachers, education school grads, school and college athletic coaches and artists, we take care in finding the most qualified and dedicated people to become counselors and instructors. All of our staff members are fluent speakers of the target language, and the majority are native speakers who come from all over the world.

What unites us all is not just our ability to speak a common language but our genuine love for children and our dedication to make sure our campers have the time of their lives while at camp!

“Joseph loved being in French camp this year. He enjoyed all the activities, and it certainly helped to improve his French skills in a fun and exciting way. He’s already looking forward to signing up again next summer! Thanks, Ria and staff.”
