Locations for school camps

Here at Camp Suisse we have been planning and delivering residential school trips throughout Switzerland for almost 20 years. During this time we have built up a wealth of experience and a wealth of experienced staff, all geared to providing you the best possible trip. To optimise your time with us we have identified several different locations based on factors such as group size, pupil age, time of year, facilities, and what kind of camp you are looking for.

At Camp Suisse we take meticulous care to ensure dietary needs are met and no-one goes hungry.

Some of our sites feature a fully equipped kitchen, run by our staff who freshly make all food. Other accommodations will feature restaurant dining, in these locations our staff will still manage all mealtimes and dietary requirements, alongside the hotel or accommodation provider.

Our most popular locations are detailed below. Do not fear however, this list is not exhaustive! If a specific location is a necessity we would love to bring Camp Suisse to you! Please email info@campsuisse.com for more information.

Torgon

 

The small village of Torgon (Valais), sits on a sun-drenched plateau overlooking the Rhône valley. At just 1.5 hours from Geneva it gives access to an abundance of untouched forest, rivers, and mountains. This provides the perfect setting for our campers to explore and learn….

The environment is ideal for outdoor learning, whether it be eco systems, flora and fauna or the traditional skills of fire lighting, camp cooking, water filtration, and shelter building.

With our climbing wall, match-ready football pitch, and a wealth of quiet unspoiled mountain trails, Torgon caters to as many outdoor activities as your students can handle. Some of our perennially popular pursuits are: sports coaching, archery, mountain biking, ghyll scrambling, hiking and camping expeditions. Torgon’s location also allows for easy access to Lake Geneva and many of Switzerland’s most popular adventure activities and tourist attractions!
