This fun Junior Adventure Camp is ideal for a ‘first-time-away’ experience for 7-9 year olds. Young campers meet others of the same age from all over the world and together get to enjoy our purpose-designed programme from our base in the fresh mountain air of the delightful village of Leysin, high in the Swiss Alps.
Of course, we realise just how important it is to choose the right camp for your child’s first residential experience. Village Camps has worked with young children for 48 years. So, we know just how to provide a safe, caring and secure environment that guarantees a fun time for our young campers, many of whom will be away from home for the first time.
The programme is specially designed for the 7-9 age-groups and is mainly a selection of the most suitable activities that are featured in our Sports and Adventure programmes.
Our young campers are introduced to a variety of exciting activities and games alongside their new-found ‘friends’ from so many different countries and cultures. Throughout the day, experienced, caring counsellors guide young campers through a magical programme of specially designed activities. Under constant, patient supervision by Village Camps counsellors, campers receive clear instructions so that each feels comfortable during each activity. Many of the activities take place in the open-air with hikes along mountain paths with spectacular views across the Rhone Valley to the French Alps and Mont Blanc in the distance. There is so much to do during the mornings and afternoons both in the hills and meadows around the hotel, in Leysin Village and the two well-equipped Sports Centres. The young campers enjoy a variety of adventure activities, sports sessions, music, dance and games sensibly mixed with some personal chill-out time.
Accommodation, Excursions & Activities
Junior Adventure campers stay in their own private residence set up specifically to welcome our youngest summer campers. The camp is run club-style from our ‘clubhouse’, located within a one-minute walk of our main accommodation in the Swiss Alpine Centre. The juniors enjoy all the facilities of the Centre knowing that they have their own cosy ‘home from home’ at the clubhouse. The accommodation offers bedrooms for 2-3 campers, a large play room and lounge and lots of space for a variety of games and activities.
