This non-stop action programme is designed for campers whose main interest is in sports. The objective is to introduce campers to new sports and to encourage them to develop existing skills in both team and individual sports.
This is the ideal programme for the active, sports-minded campers who look forward to enjoying a different sport session lasting 3 hours, every weekday morning. The daily schedule includes team and individual sports with choices made from:
outdoor fitness trails.
The programme includes a fun element with team games, challenges and competitions. It is a challenging, action packed programme where every camper will have fun whilst learning under the guidance of our enthusiastic and talented team of counsellors and coaches.
Although most activities in this programme take place in the alpine mountains around Leysin, our counsellors and trainers regularly take campers to the two well-equipped sports centres in town. The sports centres are top-class facilities with a wide range of sports and activities available.
In the afternoons, Sports campers join the other campers in age-appropriate groups, for more fun and all-camp activities.
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.
*Not available during 1st session, and not available at all for campers booking the Adventure Camp or LTC
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.
