NEW! Fun with French, an interactive immersion class for ages 0-5 taught entirely in French at Grandrabbit's Play! in Boulder, using games, crafts, books, songs, and movement to convey meaning (in other words, the same way you learned your first language); the teachers are moi and my friend Carol from A French American Life
Update, March 2015; Grandrabbit's Play is closing, but there is talk of opening something similar in a different location, so stay tuned

French playgroup for ages 5-10 once a month at Lafayette Public Library, featuring board games, crafts, and other interactive activities to encourage children to speak French with each other; meets the fourth Sunday of most months (check the library calendar to be sure) from 2:00-4:00

***update: As of fall 2013, Parenting Place is closed. No more playgroups. I'm so disappointed!

Summer French camp at Boulder Country Day School (three hours/day for five days, ages ~5-10, taught by BCDS's French teacher); Griffin attended this in 2013 and I was very impressed with the variety of activities--fun but educational, including reading and writing practice

Summer Immersion French Camp at Dawson School (a private school in Lafayette), one week in summer 2015, includes lunch and swimming, 8:30-4:00; I don't know anyone who has attended this or how established it is
Summer French Camp at Colorado International School (a private school in Denver), a two-week-long day camp for preK-4th grade (unlike the other camps listed here, which start at around age 6); last year, the program director explained to a friend that the camp isn't actually immersion, because they get so many students who don't know French (don't get me started on this idea--a good teacher can teach a language without needing to speak English to do so)
Mamans and Papas and Me, a meetup.com group based in Lone Tree, offering a weekly playdate with arts and crafts, ages 0-4, French fluency not required
And don't forget about the free library French storytimes in Lafayette, Louisville, and Boulder!
