Village Camps - International Summer Camps Europe
     
   
  An intriguing and varied programme based in Leysin. Exciting excursions to this most spectacular part of Switzerland, great selection of sports and outdoor activities, introduction to environmental education, all conducted entirely in English reinforcing language skills.

The excursions are designed to meet the educational objectives of each school with visits to places of cultural and environmental interest while the schedule always includes some "fun" visits and shopping time. Throughout their stay, students improve language skills and return home with an increased proficiency in spoken English.
