During the last few summers, the Adventure Camp developed into an exciting full-fledge programme following popular camper demand. Taking advantage of the opportunities provided by an exceptional setting in the Swiss Alps, the programme provides participants with a choice of activities that are rarely available together in one place. Every weekday morning is made up of outdoor adventure activities including: rock climbing, biking along mountain paths, a high-ropes course, white water rafting (15+) and the highlight of the 2-week session which is a trek high in the mountains above Leysin with an overnight at a mountain hut.
The aim of this camp is not only to have fun with these invigorating activities but to also develop the vital skills needed to safely enjoy the outdoors. There are educational workshops focusing on the Alpine environment, on orienteering and on outdoor survival skills like fire and shelter-building. Some of the activities take place in and around Leysin while others are in neighbouring areas. The course caters for every active camper from the newcomer interested in discovering outdoor adventure for the first time, to those with extensive camping experience. Well-trained Village Camps staff members adjust the activities to match the skill level of the participants. As a result the programme is both thrilling and safe, giving the campers the assurance and self-confidence they need to have a wonderful experience. In the afternoons and evenings, these campers join their age-appropriate groups for more sports, activities, competitions and team challenges.
