This programme combines two of our very popular programmes – Dance Camp and Performing Arts Camp. The main objective of the programme is to have campers collaborate over their two weeks at camp to put together a theatrical musical amounting to a final performance at the end of camp. There is a focus on Dance as a main portion of the programme but equally acting, and for the motivated, singing.
The programme runs for three hours every weekday morning. Our highly qualified programme director and her team deliver an outstanding experience, promoting the creative side of each individual camper, helping them to enhance and explore their skills in dance, song, and acting.
Campers who prefer to focus on the dancing aspect of the programme will work on different type of dance genres, whilst incorporating choreography into the play. The teaching team considers the skills and experience of the dancers as well as the different cultures of this group - who come from all over the world.
For the creation of their unique theatre production, campers will have at their disposal the Swiss Alpine Centre’s very own auditorium, equipped with lights and ample room to create a masterpiece, as well as a unique full-scale historic theatre in the middle of the village of Leysin about a 5 minute walk from the residence.
Campers stay at the Village Camps owned and managed Swiss Alpine Centre. The centre has spacious, mainly en-suite bedrooms for 3-4 campers as well as lounges and recreational areas and impressive dining facilities. The campus is well situated just above the main village and close to its excellent sport and leisure facilities.
There are exciting excursions to Geneva, the lakeside town of Lausanne, a chocolate factory and the Water-Park in nearby Aigle.
There is a variety of afternoon and evening activities both in Camp and outdoors, which campers from all programmes participate together. These all camp activities are organised and supervised by Village Camp counsellors.
Further details on the excursions and on the activities available at the Leysin camp can be found on the Switzerland Overview Page.

Choose from the available specialty programme and combine it with professional tennis instruction from VC’s top coach, Christine Suard! This additional option allows those that are passionate for tennis to combine their language, art, or multi-sports morning programme with qualified afternoon tennis instruction.
Our highly qualified head-coach has developed a fantastic and innovative tennis programme which has three different categories from beginners to highly trained club players. We wanted to give the opportunity to all campers regardless of programme (Adventure excluded) to opt for an additional 3 hours of tennis instruction in the afternoons!
In the evenings, campers join their peers who have been on afternoon activities for engaging evening programmes which will, at times incorporate the whole camp and other times be age group dependent.
