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.

Language CoursesMaximum 8 per group. During the morning, we offer English and French lessons based on the programs designed for the University of Cambridge and Alliance Française examinations, depending on the level of the students. As a year-round language school, this is our specialty. All programs (except the Intense Mountain week) include 15 hours of language workshops per week. Our workshops are: Lively and fun – participation is an obligation! In small groups (maximum 8 per group). Taught by native speakers who are qualified and experienced in the programs designed for the Cambridge Assessment English and Alliance Française examinations. Focused on giving the campers confidence to communicate in a foreign language. Every morning, the campers have 3 separate language workshops (according to their language level) focusing on the language, communication and drama. During the drama workshop, the campers work on a play or sketches in their chosen foreign language to perform at the end of the week.
