120 kids and teenagers joined our fifth edition of the French Heritage Language Program Summer Camp in New York and Florida, from June 15th through July 30th, 2010.
Our students were able to participate in many arts and culture-oriented workshops, and field trips: theater, painting, writing and dance workshops, visits to museums and other sites of interest. In New York, our teenagers groups also had the chance to meet with the president of the African Chamber of Commerce in the United States, Mr. Seri Gnoleba.
For the first time this year, the French Heritage Language Program worked in partnership with the Quebec-based Centre de la Francophonie des Amériques. Thanks to the Centre, two educators from Quebec and Argentina were able to join our New York teams for two weeks, broadening the cultural horizons of our groups.

In New York City, the children's camp took place a PS 84 – The Lilian Weber School, while the teenagers' camps took place at The International High School at Prospect Heights and at Bronx Academy of Letters, in partnership with The International Community High School.
