Our 37th Summer Providing Outstanding Programs for Teens

Joy of Living

There’s no place like France. As the world’s top tourist destination, this country sure knows how to laissez les bons temps rouler. Let the good times roll, indeed. France has been a leader in culture, art, science, philosophy and of course, cuisine, throughout its long and storied history. A country with a dizzying array of geographic and cultural diversity, France is full of vibrant cities, quiet rural towns, mountains, rolling hills and oodles of pastoral tranquillity. Cathedrals and castles. Fine art and high fashion. Fresh baguettes, renowned cheese, and some of the finest cuisine in the world. Chic and stylish. Yet bold and adventurous. France has a lot of appeal, its charming French national culture stitched together from a series of unique regional identities that when connected are stronger than the sum of their individual parts. It’s no wonder that such a world-class place is tops to the world.

Two unique ways to experience France

Of course all our trips visiting France fall in love with Paris – the sites atop the Eiffel Tower, strolling along Champs-Élysées, admiring the Mona Lisa – and we haven’t even mentioned the food!  But beyond the City of Lights, there is still much to explore.  The choice is yours!
