Your child will discover particularities of Switzerland through a fun bunch of activities. Travelling by train in this country is very scenic and a fantastic way to discover different regions. Hence, children will get a GEMS Train Ticket on their first day of camp and will collect the necessary stickers and stamps to validate that they have accomplished and enjoyed the planned activities around Switzerland's different cantons, such as the Leman region with tchoukball, Ticino with climbing, Zurich and St-Gall with hockey, etc. Other popular activities like football, basketball, bowling, baseball and tennis are also part of the programme as well as indoor thematic activities, such as recycling and arts & crafts. We will organise off campus field trips when the weather allows it to Plage de Buchillon, Parc Signal de Bougy and Piscine du Parc de Morges.

The camps will be bilingual - English and French. Early drop off and late pick up are possible upon request and are at an additional cost.
