The Magic Ingredients that Make Camp Suisse…

5th December 2018

With Summer 2018 all but a distant, dreamy memory, here at Camp Suisse we’re turning our attention towards the winter season; in particular our awesome Winter Ski Camp; we’re also already looking ahead to Summer 2019. In this blog we reflect upon the three key ingredients which we reckon make Camp Suisse so special year-round.


We view our staff as being the key ingredient to the success of Camp Suisse; this is particularly important at this time of year as our recruitment process for next summer is in full swing. Every year we receive dozens of applications from well qualified candidates, which allows us to select the very best individuals to join our team. When recruiting we are really looking for people who we can envisage making a positive contribution to the unique family feel which we believe sets Camp Suisse apart from other Summer Camp experiences.

Recent studies have indicated that Generation Z – that is, children born after 1997 – are becoming increasingly addicted to their mobile devices and social media. Camp Suisse provides the increasingly rare opportunity for your youngster to temporarily forget the imagined importance of Instagram likes, Snapchat streaks and emojis and puts them into an environment conducive to socialising with other kids and forming cross cultural friendships; all whilst taking part in amazing activities such as mountain biking, banana boating and eating marshmallows around the campfire on our camping excursion!

Moreover, it’s only a short bus ride down the mountain to Lake Geneva where our campers enjoy swimming and banana boating – we can’t think of anywhere we’d rather be over the summer.
In the winter our Camps in neighbouring Champery and Crosets provide unrivalled access to the Portes du Soleil ski domaine, making the ideal venues for our Ski Camps in February half term. Our campers have the perfect opportunity to improve their ski skills under the expert guidance of l’École Suisse de Ski, whilst benefiting from our excellent après ski programme which includes a mountain survival course, ice skating, swimming and more!

There’s still time to book onto our Winter Ski Camp, although places are limited so we recommend surfing to our ski website now to check out our unbeatable all-inclusive ski package.

We’ve already started taking bookings for next summer; check out our dates and prices.
