Outdoor Education Camps

Camp Suisse outdoor education camps provide an immersive outdoor learning experience; personalised programmes tailored to your class, with the aim to bring out the best in everyone.

We engender a sense of responsibility for self, others, and the environment; creating an open atmosphere where children can develop confidence in themselves and their own abilities, whilst building their respect for the world around them. We aim to encourage a growth mindset in all campers.

With our unique pedagogical approach and our in-depth subject knowledge, we guide students outside of their normal surroundings, teaching a diverse range of practical and useful skills in the outdoors.

Our camps enable learners to realise a lasting belief in their own abilities.

What to expect

Every camp is unique and we make it our mission to inspire, educate and create lasting memories for all.

Our staff are at the heart of everything we do, from initial discussions about your trip with directors Richard and Julie to our friendly staff at camp. We provide round the clock support for your teachers and students taking care of every last detail throughout your stay.

Once your journey begins with us our personable staff are at the ready to ensure you have a fun-filled and worry-free Camp Suisse experience. Our instructors are all outdoor enthusiasts who have a genuine passion for working with children. All our staff undertake extensive training and induction programmes, to guarantee the safety of your pupils and the delivery of a first-class outdoor education.

Plan your residential

At Camp Suisse we will tailor your camp to fit your specific aims. Previous examples include: environmental sustainability projects around the glaciers of the Matterhorn in Zermatt; building greater social awareness; developing survival skills; or learning how to navigate and keep safe in the mountains.

At Camp Suisse we offer outdoor education camps at a number of different locations throughout Switzerland. Get in touch with any specific requirements you want to include, and we can help in choosing the location that fits your desired outcomes.
