Days Out with Camp Suisse: Montreux Jazz Festival

28th April 2014

Campers who attend Session 1 or 2 of our two-week programmes with get to visit the 48th Annual Montreux Jazz Festival this year. Set on the shores of Lake Geneva, the Montreux Jazz Festival is a world-renowned celebration of music that showcases some of the best established and emerging musicians from all genres.

Although our Session 1 and 2 campers won’t be able to see any of the headline performances, they will have the opportunity to spend an evening soaking up the atmosphere in the free section where plenty of brilliant musicians perform. Who knows! We might even get to see the next big music superstar!

A Day at Lake Geneva

Our evening trip to the Montreux Jazz Festival is usually combined with a great daytime activity that all of our campers get to experience, regardless of which session they attend! We normally end up on Lake Geneva itself and get to enjoy the fast-paced experience that is a banana boat ride as well as a large grassy beach with a private swimming area that leaves us with plenty of space for all sorts of fun and games. If the weather is unkind, we visit the brilliant Aquaparc, with super-fun rides and slides guaranteed to get the adrenaline pumping! Check out the fun here!

An Evening of Jazz

After the fun of the lake, we then head into Montreux to watch some of the free shows and have a stroll around the stalls in supervised groups. The part of the festival that our campers will attend has loads of free live performances from up and coming acts, giving children the experience of a musical extravaganza set in beautiful Montreux.

Although the free programme has yet to be released, you can check out who’ll be performing and the free acts that campers might be able to catch on the 4th June 2014.

Not to Worry 

If you’re unable to book a place on either Session 1 or Session 2 not to worry as there are still plenty of great activities for our campers throughout the rest of this season’s sessions, and most of our sessions involve a trip to Aquaparc!
