I would like to express my gratitude and to thank all of the Camp Suisse team. Haifa had a wonderful time and really enjoyed it there. Thanks again for taking care of all the camper and making sure they were safe and happy.
I highly recommend Camp Suisse to anyone interested in sending their kids.
Thank you with all our heart! Tommaso has just returned home and he’s very happy for his experience with Camp Suisse. He really had a lot of fun: your activities were unforgettable (“even the simplest ones were very well organized and very funny”: these are words of Tommaso).
He met new fantastic friends, improving his autonomy (he traveled alone for the first time) and his English. Thanks for everything.
Best regards and our best wishes for a wonderful summer.
– Maria and Antonello
I have been to Camp Suisse’s summer camp three times. I loved it and had some of the most fun of my life! I especially love the excursions, hikes, banana boat rides in Lake Geneva, the excellent counselors, and being with great people in one of the healthiest, most beautiful places on Earth. I’ll be back!

I can’t believe Erin has been home from Camp a week already but it is safe to say she has talked of nothing else since she got back! She had the most amazing time with friends and stories to last her a lifetime. As a parent I just want to say thank you for making her first experience of travelling on her own such a fun and safe adventure. There are too many names to mention (all the Yellow group leaders who gave them endless giggles under their watchful care, the cook who gave them extra helpings, to the ‘Matron’ who no doubt must have turned a blind ear if not eye to the creaking staircase, and everyone who else who forms part of the Camp Suisse family). The photos you posted were unexpectedly much needed by us parents as a reassurance our kids were okay but wow what a great photographer and Erin & Alice were absolutely beaming in them all.
Thank you again for giving Erin an amazing time at Camp Suisse.

Thank so much for everything. Sandra and Carla were crying this morning when saying goodbye to their friends. Later in the car they didn’t stop talking about all the experiences until they fell asleep. They have had such a good time and I want to congratulate the fantastic team you have.

Patty came back home happy, she really enjoyed Camp, and wants to do it again next summer. Staff really nice, food great, all the activities very good. Thanks!

As Alessandro has returned and settling back home I just wanted to write you a short note to thank you and the entire staff of Camp Suisse.
I know that sometimes teenagers are somewhat challenging to manage, especially when they are away from home. I must say that we are impressed, although without any doubts since our decision to send him to Camp Suisse, with your support, your prompt handling of any situation, and the care demonstrated toward the kids. This must not be considered business as usual. This is exceptional.
As we are learning the experiences, the learnings and the exposure Alessandro has been facing we think this is the very minimum we could do to thank you all.”

This is our first time sending our 2 boys Ramzi and Sofian to a Summer Camp, and what a good choice Camp Suisse was. Both loved the camp, the activities, the location, and both have asked to go back next year. Thanks to Richard, Julie, Philip and all.
29th July 2019
Dear Julie, Dear Richard, Dear Team Camp Suisse, another session has come to an end and the children have left you with heavy hearts and many, many fond memories. This experience, as the ones before, has been so pleasant and problem free.
The children love the camp, it is becoming their “summer home”. We have an amazing feeling of security and ease knowing our children are with you. We can’t thank you enough. Both the children and ourselves always speak fondly of you to everyone sharing our experiences.
We look forward to sending the children again next year. Many thanks again. Please give our appreciation, gratefulness and warm regards to each and every member of the team. All the best with the remainder of the summer.
23rd July 2019
I would like to thank you all for the wonderful time my son Luca had at Camp Suisse. He enjoyed the exciting activities and excursions very much, met new friends and talked all day in English. Everything went perfectly. Camp Suisse is a safe and extremely well-organized place; the staff are supportive and caring. We felt always very relaxed!”
15th July 2019
Giovanna, Natalia and I are back. It was a wonderful experience for her, she had a great time. Thank you for your flexibility and you should be commended for your professionalism. Best wishes and see you soon!
15th July 2019
Isabella loved the camp so much. She said the experience at the camp was unforgettable; she had so much fun! Looking at the pictures, we can feel the happiness from her heart. As parents, we can’t thank you enough. It’s first time for Isabella leaving us for a long time. It’s also a very good experience for us. All our concerns and requests were well taken care of. Thank you again for everything you and your staff have done for us.
19th August 2018
My daughters, Meera and Yara, had an unforgettable experience. They enjoyed every single moment in their two week session. The photography team did a great job as well. Everything was superior.
15th August 2018
This is our second year with Camp Suisse. My 3 kids loved it and they really enjoyed every single moment of it. It was my youngest’s first time and I was a little bit worried, but he was very very happy. He was home sick but they knew how to deal with it and I took their advice and it was perfect. Now my youngest wants to spend two weeks there next year. We will definitely come back.
14th August 2018
Yousef and Maya just got home from “the best two weeks of their lives!”. The children had so much fun. Maya who is only 7, fit in like a glove, she found comfort and security in addition to loads of fun. Yousef who has traveled alone multiple times before, said that Camp Suisse has been his favourite so far. Saifeldin, their older brother who was at camp years ago, still fondly remembers his own experience at camp. As parents we can’t thank you enough. The children had so much fun, and built some great friendships (with the staff and students). Already they are planning next year at camp.
However as parents, our concerns where beyond fun and they were all well taken care of. Any requests we had were well attended to, from sleeping arrangements to dietary requests, all were dealt with magnificently.
Looking at the pictures (which are FANTASTIC) you can tell how compassionate and caring the staff where; Yousef wearing an adults jacket in the glacier and Maya being well taken care off by the staff MANY times are some of the small touches we could see.
We love how homey and personal Camp Suisse is, already many family and friends are planning to send their own children next year along with Maya and Yousef. Thank you for everything. Looking forward to next summer.

Alexander and Jospeh had a fantastic time at Camp Suisse and will definitely be back next year. It has been an amazing experience for them. The camp is extremely well organised with outstanding staff. The activities and excursions are excellent – it really is a unique camp. Many thanks.
5th August 2018
Thank you all for the wonderful experience! As you know, Dante enjoyed himself so much, he begged us to let him stay the second week. We would have loved to allow that, but it was not possible. Dante came home talking about his “friends”, even though he knew the other kids for less than a week. We are very happy that the experience was so good for all of us – not just Dante, but also for us; Richard and Julie have been very professional all the way and made the process go very smoothly. In summary: a real pleasure all round. Thanks again, we hope to be able to enjoy your camps again.
30th July 2018
I’d like to thank you for everything you’ve done to my kids and to us, parents. All your care was extremely important to both the kids and us. Especially to Pedro who came back much more mature! Last night the boys have told us all the fun they’ve had in Camp Suisse, the lovely kids that they have met and all that they have learned. I’ll highly recommend your Camp for other families. Thanks to Richard and Rosie and all staff as well. Amazing work.
23rd July 2018
My son loved the experience and made great friends!! Already talking about next year!!!
23rd July 2018
just want to thank you for the wonderful time my kids had at camp. They came back with amazing memories and long life experiences .. Thanks Julie, Richard and everyone who made our kids time so valuable and exciting .. See you again next year hopefully!
16th July 2018
Thank you to the Camp Suisse staff for having Sang, An and Linh for the past two weeks. They had a wonderful time and made some great friends. A truly enriching summer experience for them – I am so glad I discovered Camp Suisse online and went with my gut feeling that it was a good program.
18th September 2017
I want to thank Julie, Rosie and Richard and all the staff in the Blue group for the support you gave to Henry on his stay at Camp Suisse. He had an amazing experience at Camp Suisse! Henry travelled solo from Sydney, Australia at 14 years of age and the whole experience was seamless. Although he had really know idea of what it was going to be like the camp exceeded all expectations!! Henry just absolutely had an extraordinary time with his fellow members in his group and staff. As Henry was so far away from home there really wasn’t any turning back and he just got so much out of this experience. He loved the people, the food, the activities were so different and so well done. Learning a language each day, being outdoors and active was fabulous. As a parent I highly recommend this camp to any family looking for an alternative opportunity for their son and daughter. The Facebook updates and an occasional call from Henry enabled us to feel very comfortable from the beginning to the end of the camp. So thank you and we look forward to sharing this experience with our other kids and families here in Australia. We will spread the word! It’s a great idea also if families are travelling in Europe and parents want some time to themselves. Thanks again Camp Suisse staff.
22nd August 2017
This was my son’s first experience of Camp Suisse and I found it to be professional and calmly organised from the start. I really liked the communication by viewing pictures and seeing updates on the website, and the opportunity to talk during ‘shower hour’. He returned full of confidence and had clearly enjoyed all the activities – even the language classes. We feel this has been a brilliant opportunity for him to meet other children outside of his daily school life, and he hopes to keep in contact with many of them.
22nd August 2017
It was really good fun. I particularly liked the banana boating and the trip to Glacier 3000 – and the trek and camping expedition was a pleasant surprise. The dorms worked well and the other campers were good company and the staff were enthusiastic and kind. Everything was good!
21st August 2017
Thank you so much Camp Suisse team! James had a great time and can’t stop talking about his adventures. It was his second year with the camp and it looks like it will become a summer tradition. One of his very good friends from last year was in his group – what a wonderful treat. We loved to see the pictures every day and to know what the kids are up to. Every evening, at 5.30 pm James was on the phone telling us, with a super excited voice, about the food, the trips, the tricks and so on. FANTASTIC! Thank you for keeping him safe and helping him discover so much. Enjoy the rest of the year and see you in 2018!

This feedback to thank you and congratulate you for taking such good care of our cœliaque daughter Jemma. We were nervous in leaving her given her disease but apparently the meals were very diverse and she never got sick. Thank you for respecting this!
14th August 2017
Thank you Camp Suisse for the unforgettable experience it was better than i thought, and one of my best trips are the banana boating, parc adventure and aqua-parc. And my favorite activity in the camp was wall climbing.And i would thank all staff members at session 3 it was so fun.And i liked meeting great roommates and people from different people from different cultures and religions. Thank you!

Amazing. Extraordinary. Unforgettable. Thank you so much Camp Swiss for making this expirience lovely and unforgettable. I loved all the activities we did during the three weeks that I stayed, but I would like to say that the glacier and banana boating are fabulous activities!!! But I would also like to say I made loads of friends from other religions, cultures and countries which makes everything more fun! See you next year.. Thanks, thanks, thanks.
20th July 2017
My first experience abroad with friends, lot of more met from around the world, fantastic organisation! I really enjoyed every day and the week seemed so short! Thanks to all the staff and coordinators!
16th January 2017
Camp Suisse is a super place to make new friends! I love going there it is soooo much fun! All the members of staff are kind and joyful. The activities are awesome banana boating is my favourite activity with the Huskies. The group leaders always laugh and make funny jokes this year it is my second time i will definatly go there again!!
16th January 2017
My deepest gratitude for a lovely, happy, and memorable stay at camp suisse. I enjoyed a lot. I thank my group leader Harriet for taking such good care of me and helping me in trying situation. Also special thanks to Richard and Rosie for solving my issue for me, and making my stay at camp all the more comfortable. I really liked all the fun and fantastic activities that we did, liked banana boating and mountain biking in the lush green, beautiful alps the best. I greatly enjoyed climbing as I found out that i had a talent for it. Also I want to thank Adam and Alex my two climbing and biking instructors. Campsuisse was an altogether eye opening and new experience for me and I learned things and habits there (like waking up early!) that will help me in the future and change how I am. I loved and enjoyed the company of all the staff and people there, and even made new friends .I look forward to next year, and hope to become a mentor there when I am older!(See, I’m dreaming big too ! )
19th September 2016
A huge thank you to everyone at Camp Suisse for taking such good care of my son during his week with you. The activities were absolutely fantastic and he enjoyed every minute of them, particularly the glacier trip. He was also full of praise for the accommodation, food and the friendly atmosphere. As a parent, I was very impressed with the level of organisation and professionalism of everyone involved with Camp Suisse. I look forward to being in touch with you again next year to arrange a return visit!
20th August 2016
Enrico liked a lot the time spent at the Suisse Camp. It was his first experience and he was a bit worried at the beginning. But he felt so well and enjoyed so much that he asked me to come back next summer and for more time, at least two weeks!! He made good friends and they exchanged mails and numbers and they are now in touch. The group leaders were always present and it was easy to get in touch with the responsible of the camp. This is very ensuring for the parents. Thank you a lot also for the photos posted on FB, it was nice to follow our kids during their activities! I will recomend The Internacional Suisse Camp to my friends with our any hesitation. I already started!! Good job!”

17th August 2016
Dear Camp Suisse Team, Many, many thanks to all for the great camp! Our son Arthur was really, really happy with his two-week stay at Camp Suisse. He loved the activities and met many great friends! He wants to come back next year and was so enthusiastic about the camp that his younger sister wants to join as well!
16th August 2016
This was my first time at Camp Suisse and it was great! I met loads of new people, who were all really nice. We did many great activies which included: visiting a glacier, mountain biking and rock climbing! The language lessons were also great as we practised our French in different ways such as through games which made it really fun. The food was excellent and all the staff were very friendly. I really enjoyed my trip and I thought it was very well organised and everything was done very efficiently. I would definitely recommend Camp Suisse and I would definitely like to go again next year!
16th August 2016
As parents we were very impressed with the efficient way the camp was organised to allow time for so many activities, the attention to the safety of our children, Charlotte and Caspar, and the structure of the day. Bedtimes were respected. Staff cared about small details which reassured our children. Each evening they were given clear and simple instructions so they knew what was expected of them and what they should expect. Our children found the food delicious. They relished the variety of new activities with a nice balance of time to socialise through informal and optional evening games. Our children are trilingual and we were delighted by the small class sizes for language lessons and by the challenging level of instruction. Krystin used a variety of high interest material and media to stimulate discussion and opinion. My daughter is shy but the subject matter compelled her to speak and to give her opinion in German. Next year they’ll be back with their sister. In the mean time they’re keeping the memories alive wearing the lovely Camp Suisse polo shirts with pride.
15th August 2016
This was Zain and Ali’s first trip abroad on their own. It was such a great experience. We want to send our thanks to all the staff of Camp Suisse for making Zain and Ali’s trip such an enjoyable one. They made friends from around the world and had fun studying German and Spanish. They greatly enjoyed all the activities and trips.. Thank you very much.
13th August 2016
Our son had the most fantastic time at Camp Suisse. He was really excited about going and the experience was even better than he expected. He travelled alone but was met at the airport in Geneva, without any problems. He was so busy every day and he loved all the activities. The camp was so professional and everything was organised really well. We had a problem with the phone but the monitors made sure that their phone was available to use if we wanted to make contact with our son. He loved the friends he made and the relationships with all the monitors, who were fantastic. He would love to return again next year! I would not hesitate in recommending Camp Suisse to anyone.
7th August 2016
For the second year, I and my husband have to thank you for the wonderful two weeks Pietro spent at your camp. He enjoyed so much that now everything is boring for him!!!!! He’s ready for next summer. Thanks to new and old friends coming from all over the world, his english improved a lot.
2nd August 2016
I have no words to express how thankful we are for everything Camp Suisse did [and means] to my nephews. Really. For the second year we are more than happy to have our kids there with you. Arthur and Samuel are soooooooooooooooooo excited about this year´s experience that they can´t wait to go back there again next year. Funny thing is that they simply don´t stop talking about their new friends, about the German lessons, the glacier, the food [Sam was praising the breakfast haha]… And the staff as well. Something interesting is that Sam is going to study in Germany next year but he has already said and wants to make sure that he´s going to Camp Suisse for two weeks in the summer I swear… I am forever thankful for your professionalism and care. You, Richard and the overall staff are excellent, yes, ‘excellence’ is should be your middle name haha. Many, many thanks.
1st August 2016
My son Adrien, 11, had a great time at Camp Suisse. When he came back home after his two-weeks session the first thing he said was “Can I go back to Camp Suisse next year ?” Then when I asked what activity did he prefer he replied “I liked them all”
31st July 2016
This was my second time at Camp Suisse, and I found it even better the second time round (which I didn’t think was possible!). The atmosphere is just so lovely and the location is absolutely picturesque, with so many gorgeous places around to visit. The staff are all amazing: kind, friendly and welcoming. The group leaders are great people to have fun with on activities and at meals (shout-out to Jack!) and help make sure everything goes smoothly, whilst also making sure everyone has a great time. PCL (pastoral care leaders) are always there to make sure that everyone is okay and to hand out medicine, and very organised with all the paperwork. They’re always there for everyone; whether one of the younger kids is feeling homesick, or if you need boy advice! The kitchen staff were all lovely and great at dealing with dietary needs. I’m a vegetarian, and each meal they would come over and talk me through what I could eat, and if there was a meat dish then they would prepare me my own meal instead (shout-out to Mike and his pesto!) .The food was absolutely delicious and the packed lunches they gave us for excursions were very generous, as well as tasty. The accommodation is also nice, with separate chalets for the boys and girls. They pair you with people around the same age as you, which is great for making friends, but if you want to share with someone specific they’re perfectly happy to accommodate that and very helpful about it. Studying a language at camp was incredibly fun, as the teachers made the lessons enjoyable, as well as educational. They make you sit a brief, test at the beginning of languages so that they can ensure that you are with people of the same ability as you, and then you’re allocated two language teachers. There are also great language events for everyone to partake in, such as the language karaoke and the language talent show. It was all very fun, but also very educational and I definitely learnt a lot (Danke schön Ray und Kristin!). The activities in and outside of camp were very varied and all incredibly fun. Inside camp you did activities such as archery, sports, mountain biking, rock climbing, mountain adventure day, art jamming (shout-out to Steve!) and numerous other things. These were a great way to try things you might not have done before, and improve on things you already knew. The off-campus activities were also incredible, going to places such as Lake Geneva, the Aqua Park, Glacier 3000, The Montreaux Jazz Festival, Banana Boating, Outdoor Rock Climbing and more. This was a great way to go out and explore, have a great time with your friends and soak up the sun. One of the best things, in my opinion, was the hike up to the chalet and the night we spent there. It was a long hike, but the fine weather and overall cheeriness made it a great time. Once we stepped at the camp, we had a delicious barbecue and then we walked up to the border of France. The view was absolutely breathtaking and definitely worth the walk. Afterwards we had a campfire and had a great time telling ghost stories, singing campfire songs and eating campfire food. In the chalet we had the opportunity to share a dorm with everyone of the same gender in our age group, and that was great fun, as I wasn’t sharing a dorm with some of my friends back at camp, and so this way we still got to have a sleepover and gossip! Not only did we have activities in the daytime, but every evening there was a special evening activity organised for us. My particular favourites were the Casino Night and the Language Kareoke, but there were also many more fun activities, such as the Mini Murder Mystery, and the Disco. Camp Suisse is the epitome of an international camp; I made friends from many different countries all over the world, including Mexico, Alaska, Italy, Vietnam, Tokyo, Saudi Arabia, Germany, France Dubai. Coming from England, it was amazing to meet such a wide range of people with different backgrounds, and learning all about the similarities and differences between our countries. I would like to thank Richard, Julie, and all the staff and campers at Camp Suisse for helping me have such a great time and for everything that they have done. I can honestly say that Camp Suisse is my favourite place in the world and I have the most wonderful time whenever I go. I would definitely recommend Camp Suisse to anyone who is looking for somewhere where they can experience a range of activities, meet new people, and have the time of their life. Thank you!

I would to share with all of you the feedback of my daughter after her week at Camp Suisse. She came back home with so great souvenirs, she met en new freinds from all around the world. This exprience opened her mind and she discovered many other cultures. This the best way to travelling in future. Than for me, her father, the staff was very disponible and professional. The organisation was secured us and we were informed as soon as we need. This is the best place to leave our childs. Thanks again and we hope to see you again next year.
26th July 2016
I want to thank Julie,Rosie and Richard for my wonderful time at Camp Suisse! My special thanks to Alice, Charlotte B and Kirsty who never let me feel sad or lonely. I was only missing my parents on the first day but then they took over and made feel so happy and have fun from the very next day. Charlotte B also managed to make me learn some French Kirsty was really caring and sweet and Alice is really fun and nice. Lucia also taught me how to make that special bracelet for my mom. I didn’t think so but now I’m actually missing Camp Suisse and look forward to coming again next year. I do hope that you’ll have me too

I spent one week in Camp Suisse this year, it was perfect ! The whole staff was very nice and the activities were very interesting ! In this camp there’s a very good atmosphere even if you don’t speak English fluently. It’s very nice to meet people from all around the world, and discover different cultures. I would like to thank everyone for this week and see you next year !”
15th July 2016
This was the my second time at camp, and I absolutely LOVED IT! When I got to the camp, everyone was very nice and welcoming and the atmosphere in general was great. The activities where something I would kill to do, Banana boating, Going to Aqua parc, Mountain biking and tons more! Everything from the staff/group leaders to the accomodation was great. Everyday was an action packed day and getting bored was never an option. Remember: CAMP SUISSE IS THE BEST CAMP EVER!”
13th July 2016
I had the best time at camp suisse and met some really nice people there. The activities that were planned for us were always great fun and the staff running them really helpful and entertaining. I would love to be back one day. (Celeste) Many thanks to the whole team for providing Celeste with such a great time and to send her back to Australia filled with so many wonderful memories.

18th February 2016
I had a such a fun time at Camp Suisse in the summer. I was kind of nervous about joining at first because I was coming from Thailand by myself, and didn’t know anybody on the camp. However the staff and group leaders made me feel really welcome, and I didn’t need to worry because I made lots of nice friends straight away, many of which I’m still in touch with. The activities were all fantastic but for me the best three were; the glacier visit, the treetop adventure and lake geneva activities. The food was really good, in particular the paninis at lunch! All the staff and helpers made all the activities really enjoyable, even the french tuition. I would highly recommend this camp to anyone who is thinking of going.
17th August 2015
Our youngest went to Camp Suisse for three weeks, it was her first international camp and she loved it – she had bouts of homesickness but overcame it and thoroughly enjoyed her time. Her older sisters were at Camp Suisse two times and they were so envious – they want to go next week again, even with their little sister… They would also love to go climbing outside not just in the hall, maybe that will be possible?
17th August 2015

16th August 2015
I can’t think how this week could have been any better. There was the perfect balance of exciting activities and time to chill out and meet the other campers. Highlights for Joe were the banana boating on lake Geneva, the chocolate factory and camping out in the mountains. He also did bush craft skills, archery, basketball, rock climbing, hikes and loads more. What more could a kid possibly want!?! Camp Suisse have thought of everything from currency exchange to managing tiredness levels to make sure the kids get the most out of their week. Before, during and after the camp communication was superb with any queries answered almost immediately and paperwork kept simple and to the point. We were quickly spotted by the Camp Suisse representative at the airport and whisked away to the Alps. Upon arrival at the camp every member of the team was welcoming, enthusiastic and professional leaving me 100% confident that Joe would be well looked after and have an amazing week. Despite us arriving during a busy lunchtime, everyone had time for a quick hello and The facilities had a modern and clean feel and the whole atmosphere at camp was a buzz of excitement, positivity and happiness. I cannot recommend Camp Suisse highly enough if you are looking for a summer camp for your children. Joe’s only complaint was that he couldn’t stay for longer! Special shout outs to: Rich- Camp Director who still made loads of time to get to know the kids and make their stay fun. Jack & Rosie- Activity Leaders who Joe thought were awesome! Kim- Joe’s group leader who looked after him for us all week. Thank you so much Camp Suisse… Hopefully see you next year!”

This was the first time my children were going so far away from home on their own. I was worried when I dropped them off but the reception I got was calming. The younger two learnt to ride bicycles and they did things they wouldn’t normally get to do like hiking. They definitely will return next year.
15th August 2015
This was the first time our kids ever went to an overnight camp – let alone be away from home for two weeks. However, the staff did an amazing job with the kids and they never had a hard time adjusting to their new environment. They learned to ride a bike, climb a wall, and sufficient German to help them during our vacation there right after the camp. There were some issues regarding cultural differences with one particular kid, but the team was always aware of it and quickly took corrective action to make sure it didn’t escalate. All inquiries and communications with the staff were answered immediately. The best litmus test for CampSuisse is the fact that the kids loved it and are demanding to go back next year. Thank you, CampSuisse! Great job.
12th August 2015
It was my daughter’s first camp experience and she was probably one of the youngest so very impressed by the structure. Upon arrival my husband and I found everything was very well organized and well thought, still it was difficult for us to leave our daughter for the first time. We appreciated the time we spent to meet with Richard, the camp director and the staff. It was great that we could speak to her everyday by calling her camp counsellor but also to see amazing pictures on a daily basis. Day after day we couldn’t believe how enthousiastic she was, so many things to tell us! She particularly loved the banana boat activity, the hunt and climbing but overall everyday seemed to be great fun. She loved the food and enjoyed her language class in the morning. She asked if she would be allowed to stay 2 weeks next year so as another parent said previously: that says it all. Thanks again to all the staff for the beautiful moments shared with our kids.
11th August 2015
Overall the camp was great- the staff were extremely friendly, enthusiastic and encouraging and the activities were varied and fun. My favourites were the huskys on the glacier, mountain biking, banana boating and the treetop adventure. I felt that our independence was respected by letting us go to the nearby convenience store and play our own music during dinner. My German lessons were challenging and pushed both the written and oral aspect of the language. My German teacher Katja’s enthusiasm for the language was infectuous! I would also say that the food we were served wasn’t bad, and that the salad bar was good, but that I missed fresh fruit and vegetables and that the food could definitely be improved by a range of vegetables available in all meals. The other guys in my group were really friendly, and we became firm friends, going wild and having loads of fun at prom and karaoke!

My son had never away from home for any length of time before so I didn’t know if this would be a disaster or a huge hit. Turns out he LOVED camp and while he said he did miss us, he had a great time. Camp Suisse was always very quick to respond to any inquiries I had, and I would recommend this camp to anyone in the future!!

Samantha had a wonderful time at Camp Suisse. She is already campaigning for a return next summer. This is the second summer in a row she has spent at a language camp in Europe. She was far more impressed with the accommodations (“her chalet”) and food at Camp Suisse. The activities like banana boating, hiking to France, and rock climbing were welcome breaks from the study part of the program. She really liked her German teachers and the rest of the staff. The staff we met at the airport while dropping her off and picking her up were very polite and helpful.

Best wishes to all the staff! Our children come the second time in the camp. This means that everything is very cool! Thank you very much for your attention and care to the children! Sorry, that was not lucky with the weather – but even in this case, the children had fun and enjoyed it very much! We wait for next summer to come! Good luck! Parents of Polina and Anna.

camp is one of the most funnest things that ever happened to me.I would love to say that Lizzy was such a good camp counsellor.

I even considered sneaking under the beds and staying there until the next session started!

Camp was a great experience for my kids. Their first time there was last year and they loved it so much they asked to go back again this year. The staff are very attentive and you can really sense that they absolutely care about the kids welfare. They have also had a great opportunity to make friends with kids from other countries. Great experience! Fehintola

My son’s first comments when I picked him up was “Dad can I please stay for two weeks next year” – that pretty much sums it up for him! And for me? the organisation and coordination was first rate – he will definetely be coming back again.

This was the first time my daughter travels away from home on her own. She had a blast during her two weeks at the camp. The breath taking view, compact activities, friendly and helpful staff, and most important the friends she made will be a memory that she takes with her for a lifetime. This experience gave her a boost of confidence and a refreshed start to the school year. From my perspective as a parent, the staff were always available by text or phone to address any queries I had. I loved hearing her bubbly voice in the evening telling me about all the exciting activities she did. What I personally loved is the fact they were not allowed their phones or internet access! If there is one thing I would change, I would make it clear to parents/children before hand that they will need to have an actual camera to use during excursions. My daughter took her ipod to use the camera and she wasn’t allowed to use. She was disappointed that she couldn’t take pictures of her trip to share with me and her friends. Thank you again, and we look forward to more adventure with Camp Suisse.

We sent our son and daughter to join the last session this summer, both of them liked the camp very much and enjoyed their time there to the maximum. Staff were very helpful and responsive, I would like to thank them all. Hope to send the kids again next summer.

This camp is perfect ! I have already gone in Camp Suisse the first session. It was so great ! Thank you so much for everything. Activities are very good and funny. People is very kind with everybody. Nothing is bad. Languages lessons are very instructive. I loved glacier, climbing, parc adventure, etc… It’s the best camp in the world !!!! Thank you, see you next year ! Margaux”

This was our first time sending our son away without a family member for such a long time. Alex loved every minute he spend at the camp and made such great friends while he was there. The team leaders and staff were very supportive and understanding that it made it easy for me as a mother to relax and stop worrying and trust that he was in good hands, the staff were always available, feedback was almost instant, reaction to events and situations were spot on and reassuring. I would definitely send Alex back next year and hopefully few of his friends from Dubai will be joining him to share the experience and fun. My only comment is that we would of loved a collection of videos and pictures to be sent home to share the memories with friends and family, maybe next year a CD or flash drive can be given to the children for keepsake. Thank you camp Suisse for the great summer holiday any child would love and appreciate.”

Abigail Spent 4 weeks in the camps and so enjoyed herself that she wanted to stay longer. She already misses the friends she made and the time she had and is planning her return next summer.”

This was our son’s first time at Camp Suisse and he absolutely loved it! He’s already asking to return next year. Great job having so many activities to keep them busy from wake-up to lights out — he was never bored. His favorites were the dog-sledding, the water park, and mountain biking. I do wish there were more photos of the children doing different activities at camp.”

This was Jonathan’s first camp and he loved it. My wife and I were worried that he would be too young and maybe not mature enough for a stay-away camp. These fears proved to be unfounded. He had a wonderful time and although the weather did not allow for the magnificence of the area to be revealed he had no complaints. I stayed nearby in Champery and made the trek to the campus numerous times due to communication issues with my son during his shower hour. For US parents wishing to keep in contact with their kids I suggest having European cell phones and service on both ends. My only complaint would be that in a week he had but a few German classes. I expected a more immersive language environment for him.”

This is my kids 4th year and every year they come back full of lasting impressions along with new friends. It seems like the program caters to all interests and age groups. The staff are are organized, accommodating and helpful throughout for both parents and children and it really provides peace of mind that your children are being looked after. My one criticism as a 4th year parent to change the program a bit as every year it seems to be the same.”

Taylor and Garrett loved the camp. The food, the counselors and outings were great. Garrett’s favorite was the banana boating. Taylor said she leared more French in two weeks at camp than in two years at school. We felt they were safe, well cared for and having wonerful adventures. We appreciated the chance to speak with them every other day or so as this was the first time we’d left them in another country. Garrett especially gives Jack, Jordan and Paloma a big thumbs up!”

Itry was totally charmed by her experience at the camp. All the activities were exciting perhaps hiking was a heartbreak for her!!!!she will never forget the kindness of the staff, already missing each single one. She grew up with this experience , opened her mind to a brand new world. The food was a high quality , and language lessons were stimulating. But the day to remember was surely “the glacier ” with the dogs .she is still talking about it with sparkling words!!! Unforgettable !!!we would like to say that u are 100% professional and I m going to apply for next summer that’sfor sure. Itry is sending many kisses to all of you hoping to see you in 2015.kind regards. Itry’mum”

Camp Suisse was my two daughters’ first experience of camp; and I have to say they thoroughly enjoyed it. They returned after two weeks full of stories of their exciting adventures and a new found sense of independence. We would definitely do this again next year! A big thank you to all of the members of Camp Suisse. Nadia (Zein and Layla’s mum)”

We are very happy about Nick’s camping. I’s been a great opportunity for learning English, making new friends from all over the world, and trying new sports. The best thing it’s that he’s now very fast having shower!! He’ll probably come again next year (hoping tennis well be available again), Parents of Camillo Nicolò De Sabbata”

It was my daughter’s first time at camp and she really enjoyed it. Sadly, the weather wasn’t perfect but she still had a great time. Thank you for looking after the children so well and we hope to visit the camp again! Parents of Zahra Basiri.”

Our son William really enjoyed his time at camp. This was not our first camp experience, but it was our first experience with Camp Suisse. We sincerely hope that it will not be our last! Within an hour of arriving at camp our son made new friends, played free outside, skinned his knee, and received a bandage and heartfelt care from the staff. Everything we hope he would encounter on a 2-week, character-building trip – all rolled into his first hour on site! All the other activities are scheduled and to be expected (hiking, biking, climbing, swimming) – these are the things we “expect” and go by with little notice. Camp Suisse brought “unexpected” to our child: International friends, foods, languages and personalities while away from the “World” that may infringe on their ability to be kids in exploration. He made close bonds with kids from 6 countries, 4 religions, and 3 native languages while meeting many others. A truly International camp with International staff and accommodations for all who come. He was excited to tell us about all and sad to part ways at the end of the trip. To tell you his enjoyment – we received 1 text message and no calls from him in 2 weeks… He was busy and we were thrilled! We felt the sleeping accommodations were quite nice for a kids camp. Certainly nicer than camps we have experienced in the US. The campers were smartly arranged with the youngest campers nearest the counselors’ rooms and the older kids further down the hall. He made no mention of the food, which means it was adequate. He loved the activities but talked most about the fun times during the rainy night at the Outpost Camp. We are happy to have him back but he would much prefer to be with his friends and staff at Camp Suisse!

This was our first camping experience but it will certainly not be our last. Saifeldin had a blast his only disappointment was coming home. He thoroughly enjoyed his time. He was comfortable and the staff where amazingly supportive and helpful. As for us, his parents, our minds were put at ease from the start when the staff picking him up at the airport were friendly and kind but more importantly organized and professional. Saifeldin enjoyed so many things at the camp but mostly swimming in the lake and ridding on the sledge. We look forward to sending him and his younger brother to camp again next summer and do urge you to consider organizing a winter camp. All our best, Parents of Saifeldin Hafez”

Camp was a great experience for them. The kids become independent, they meet kids from all over the world, they learn to survive without their parents, they participate in super activities. They liked rock climbing, sledging with the huskies, the waterparc and they both really enjoyed the Olympic games and the Disco night. They also talked a lot about the night they camped outside. They both had a super time! They missed home a lot, it was their first time away from us, but still managed to enjoy camp a lot. Everyday had a new challenge for them. They did things they had never done before. The staff was very supportive especially at the beginning when the kids became a bit homesick. They always seemed to be close to the kids. I would like to thank especially Frances and Aisha. At all times they made me feel that the kids were safe and in good hands. THANK YOU!”

Since it was our first camp experience, it would have been useful to get a better idea of lodgings facilities. Perhaps some photos of the rooms would be useful. I think it is a great idea to have language classes in the morning and activities in the afternoon. Living in Tokyo, it was wonderful for the children to experience such vast nature in Torgon. When we picked them up, they excitedly talked about all their activities and how much fun they had. “It was scary, as it was my first camp experience” (8 year-old) “I loved tennis!” (8 year-old) “I loved river rafting!!” (10 year-old) Overall, the children seemed to have had a great time. Activities – The girls really enjoyed the outdoor and indoor activities-e.g. rock climbing, water activities, nature walks They also seemed to have enjoyed the Torgona Hunt (treasure hunt). Regarding the staff, everyone was very responsive when we had questions. We appreciated the timely response from the coordinator when we had concerns. We also felt reassured we could call in the evenings. Food – The salad was good, however, it would be nice to have some more fruit in the morning.
