We are delighted that our adventure activity program has achieved AdventureMark accreditation bi-annually since 2012, which recognises that we deliver all activities to the highest standards in terms of safety, risk management, organisation and staff competence. Our team of skilled and enthusiastic activity leaders are dedicated to meeting these standards as well as creating a fun, yet safe, learning environment. Whether we are clambering up climbing crags, getting to grips with real mountain biking, hiking and camping to our Alpine outpost and unleashing the inner Robin Hood in our lively archery sessions, building hammocks in the woods, navigating our way round the local forest with a compass or pitting our wits in team building challenges, there is never a dull moment at Camp Suisse.
Our supervised excursions allow our campers to experience first-hand Swiss and European culture. Popular trips include a day on the glacier, which involves husky dog sledding on the snow at 3000m altitude; the chocolate and cheese factories in Gruyères; the Olympic museum in Lausanne; the Montreux Jazz Festival in early July; Chateau de Chillon and our very own Roman history experience in Martigny.
Of course, our campers also have plenty of time for relaxation with our excursions which are ‘just for fun’! These include: swimming and diving at the beautiful outdoor pool at Villeneuve; a visit to the Aquaparc (Europe’s largest indoor theme park); the ‘Adventure Labyrinth’ maze and outdoor games; banana boating on Lake Geneva; a day at the thermal outdoor spas; and swinging through the trees at Parc Aventure.
Camp Suisse is an English-speaking camp although campers are welcome to practise the language of their choice with their friends. French is also widely spoken around the camp. Our language courses include 15 hours of tuition per two-week session or 9 hours per one-week session. We offer language courses in Spanish, French, German or English, all as foreign languages. The focus is on practical conversation and confidence building, and classes are available at beginner, intermediate or advanced levels. Audio visual aids, modern materials and innovative techniques are used and full participation is encouraged. Our language teachers are also heavily involved in activities and excursions to maximise learning opportunities for campers outside the classroom.
