Sleep Away Camps in France

Sleep-away camps in France are referred to as Les Colonies de Vacances. We haven't gone this route, but it's popular among our French friends. The organizations are highly structured and prices include lodging, food and activities. In some cases, transportation to-and-from camp is also provided.

Just a reminder that these are French sleep-away camps (meaning: French instructors, French kids, French language). If you find a camp describing itself as an "English" camp, they are likely focussed on teaching English to French kids. For a native English speaker, this would not be an ideal choice.

These websites allow you to search for the right camp by location, activity or age: Salut Les Kids and 123 Sejours.
