Switzerland is home to some of the best boarding schools in the world and is the premier destination for students seeking good international language schools and adventure in the summer. Still it has taken us more than a decade and a half to find a partner camp in Switzerland that can match the high standards of safety, security and professionalism delivered by our renowned Dubai camp. Now, boys and girls of all nationalities have the opportunity to expand on their experience with us by participating in our Swiss residential camp with the option of combining it with any of our other camps in Dubai or London!
The Switzerland Summer Camp
Our Swiss camp is located at the premiere off-piste resort village of Verbier in south-western Switzerland. Located on a sunny plateau above the picturesque valley of Val de Bagnes, the village attracts visitors and celebrities from all over the world. Around an hour and a half away from Geneva by car, our Swiss camp offers an exceptional opportunity to combine learning English or French with a rich residential program in a positive and supportive ‘home from home’ environment that allows each camper to learn new skills and navigate new experiences, while remaining safe and happy at camp.
Student accommodation has been arranged in safe and secure private Swiss style chalets, well equipped with modern two to four bedded rooms, all with private facilities. Full board is provided and includes a diverse range of healthy international and local Swiss home-cooked cuisine, with all dietary requirements catered for with round-the-clock supervision by a specialist team of educators, to ensure a safe, enhanced experience of camp-life in a miniature society based on friendship and family spirit. As well as having our own in-house facilities and equipment, our camp makes use of the fantastic facilities in and around Verbier. These include volleyball and basketball courts, indoor and outdoor climbing walls, an indoor swimming pool and an outdoor beach pool, playgrounds, a multi-sport gymnasium, indoor ice rink, soccer pitches, squash courts, tennis courts , mini-golf course, golf driving range, cycling paths, and hiking trails with mountain huts for overnight stays.
Daytime French or English Classes or Mountain Adventure
Our Swiss camp offers a unique combination of learning options. The mornings can be dedicated to learning English or French or, for those who do not wish to engage in academic work, we offer our Mountain Adventure program. The camp employs qualified, native language teachers for their French or English programs in class. Outside class, native English staff are employed so that every camper is encouraged to speak in English outside their lesson, to improve English language development as well as ensure inclusivity for all campers, whatever their nationality and mother tongue. For our Mountain Adventure program, campers will enjoy a new activity every day in their age-specific activity group, such as fire building, using compasses and map reading, shelter building, mountain biking, and climbing. Small groups of up to only 8 children per activity leader encourages teamwork whilst ensuring each camper receives personal one-to-one guidance from the team leader, building self-confidence and understanding. Daily language or adventure classes and sessions are held for fifteen hours per week.
Recreational Activities, Competitive Leagues, and Trips
Every afternoon and until early evening, campers will enjoy a balanced program of sports, team building games, and local excursions. The international environment of the camp helps children to form new international friendships whilst learning to live and work alongside other campers.
