Campers will acquire new language skills and put them to use in the village and at camp all while enjoying an action-packed holiday.

Summer Camp Programme suitable for ages 10-17

Programme Overview

With 30 hours of intense, but enjoyable instruction in each two-week session, campers concentrate on mastering two-way conversations, both speaking and listening. Highly trained and experienced teachers/counsellors oversee this successful and worthwhile all-round camp experience. This unique and highly acclaimed Village Camps' approach to language learning successfully achieves significantly greater progress and final results in language skills than in classic language schools.

French Programme

As part of this highly rewarding experience, language campers are encouraged in fun and challenging ways to utilize their French, not only in classes, but throughout the entire day and evening. This ensures better progress and an almost certain guarantee that children returning home will understand the language better and will significantly improve their spoken French. Assessment is continuous. An appropriate certificate is awarded at the end of camp and a written report is sent to the parent.

Tennis and Language Camp

This camp combines a practical language experience with the tennis programme, structured so that campers have three hours of language tuition (French or English) in the morning and three hours of tennis instruction (in French or English) in the afternoons.

Accommodation, Excursions & Activities

Campers stay at the Village Camps' Swiss Alpine Centre. The centre has spacious, mainly ensuite bedrooms for 3-4 campers, lounges and play areas as well as excellent dining facilities. The campus is well situated just above the main village and close to its excellent sport and leisure facilities. Excursions to interesting Swiss towns such as Geneva, Montreux and Bern are part of the camp experience.
