Outdoor Education – The Matterhorn is our Classroom Window!

16th January 2020

At Camp Suisse we believe there is no education like Outdoor Education! As a holder of the Learning Outside the Classroom (LotC) Quality Badge, we thrive on creating experiential learning experiences for our campers in multi-sensory environments.

So when one of our longstanding international school clients asked us to develop an Outdoor Education program focusing on glacial retreat, rocks and environmental sustainability we jumped at the chance to set up our classroom at the foot of the majestic Matterhorn,  surrounded by the magnificent peaks and glaciers of the Zermatt region.

Seminal moments like these instil sheer excitement in our team and have seen our Outdoor Education program go from strength to strength. Our drive and desire to create amazing and relevant educational experiences has taken groups of campers to some of Switzerland’s most inspiring and unique regions. 

In 2019 we very proudly created new programs in Zermatt whilst further developing our offerings in both Torgon and Leysin. In May 2020 we are very excited to be launching our Outdoor Education programs based near the traditional Alpine villages of Evolène and Arolla in the Val d’Herens. With its preserved Swiss heritage and surrounding famous peaks, the Val d’Herens is a mountain lover and an educator’s paradise.

From forest forages to fire lighting and sedimentary rocks to sustainability, each of our lessons is designed to be great fun, interactive, safe and completely unique.
