Junior Adventure Summer Camp | Switzerland | Leysin

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.

Programme suitable for ages

Programme Overview

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.

More details about the camp facilities, activities and excursions can be found in the "Country Switzerland Overview Page".

Tennis Add-on CHF 650.-

*Not available during 1st session, and not available at all for campers booking the Adventure Camp or LTC

Choose your favourite specialty programme whilst combining 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 which will allow campers to improve significantly at both disciplines, morning and afternoon!

We are very fortunate to be partnered with such a qualified head-coach who has developed such a fantastic and innovative tennis programme which has three different categories from beginners to highly trained club players. We therefore 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.

Certainly, a programme not to be missed for those who are interested in professional swiss tennis instruction as well as other specialty programmes!
