French Summer Camps at the French House, Madison, Wisconsin (esp. teens!)

For information, respond directly to Bveitchusa@aol.com :

French Summer Camps at the French House, Madison
French camps for teenagers (12-14 year olds) will get you the closest feeling you will get to going to France (or Quebec) without leaving Madison. Half days (including 3-4 course lunch) or full days (with afternoon "immersion excursions" around Madison) are a great way to extend your linguistic and cultural experience and have fun at the same time. There's even an overnight/sleepover option this year (one night of the week) for the first time this year. Maybe we'll have our own "Fete du Cinema"!

The Alliance Française de Milwaukee is looking for volunteers for three separate booths during the Bastille Days Festival on the streets of Milwaukee on and around Cathedral Square. This is the biggest celebration of Bastille Days in the United States - perhaps in the world! We are looking for responsible volunteers in shifts from 11 a.m.-4 p.m., 4-8, and 8-midnight on July 11, 12, 13 and 14th. We need people to work selling beignets and café au lait in our very popular beignet stand, selling souvenirs and items from France in our cultural tent, or selling food tickets to the general public and adding a French flair. We also need volunteer teachers to give free 1/2 hour mini-French lessons at the Cultural Tent at 1, 3 and 5 each day. Anyone willing to volunteer for a shift, please specify the date and time, as well as the booth you would prefer. Please include your telephone # and address so we can send confirmations. You may e-mail the Alliance: director@afmilwaukee.org.
