“Our son (age 6) had never taken part in any camp before and was apprehensive about going. After day one he was counting the hours till he could go back to have fun with Ria – he had an absolute blast! Looking forward to sending his 4 year old brother along with him this summer tool!”


An Immersive Experience for Active Kids

Being a camper at Bonjour Language Camps is a fully immersive experience – in language, in rich content, and in fun! Our mission is to provide a “campy-camp” experience for our campers, allowing them to be full-on summer kids while learning in an environment that doesn’t feel like school.

What makes us unique and amazing, and wonderful, and life-changing – all words our campers and families have used to describe Bonjour Language Camps – what makes us the place you should send your kids is much deeper than the right location, schedule, or activities. We do provide tons of great themes and activities, from all the tried and true Bonjour favorites to newer curriculum like Magic+Improv and Kitchen Chemistry. But what’s more important is the environment – the community, the inclusiveness, and the people we are deep down.

Bilingualism: Give Your Child an Edge… in the Brain and in Life!

Camp is so very important in a child’s life. It teaches them valuable lifelong social skills and builds confidence. Camp is about experiences, challenging ourselves to try new things, making new friends, playing outdoors, learning new skills, and more.

Your campers get all of the above at Bonjour Language Camps. And they get even more – they also learn French, Spanish, or Mandarin. There is no doubt that learning a foreign language at a young age gives our children an edge. While learning through immersion is the most efficient way to learn a language, how can one possibly create a language immersion environment while being in NYC? As hard as this challenge might seem, we do it every day of camp. We at Bonjour Language Camps create a fully immersive environment for our campers to explore and learn a new language without getting on an airplane.

While focusing on rich, contextual experiences and building confidence and friendship, we take the pressure off the efforts required to learn French, Spanish, or Mandarin. In this way we create the perfect environment for our campers to significantly improve their language skills while focusing their attention on what’s most important to them: exploring, making friends, and having fun. We help prepare your children for the many opportunities they will get in life with the additional language and social skills they acquire at Bonjour Language Camps. Just ask some of our alumni!

Great Camp, Great Staff

We have an incredibly close-knit and inclusive community. Campers are welcomed for who they are and rewarded daily for their efforts and contributions to our group. In today’s world of text messaging and video games, we continue to maintain a human atmosphere of healthy connections and real communication. It’s unequaled in promoting social skills and teaching kids to get along with each other (which may be the most useful skill of all), and of course it’s a tremendous amount of FUN!

We have an amazing staff of caring and well-vetted young people from all over the world, many of whom have been with us for years. All of our staff members are fluent French, Spanish, or Mandarin speakers, many are native speakers. We count teachers, sports coaches, artists…in our team. What unites us all is not just our ability to speak French, Spanish, or Mandarin, but our genuine love for children and our dedication to make sure our campers have the time of their lives while at Bonjour Language Camps.
