We are delighted that our programs interest you. We are convinced that our camps are the best place to enjoy summer vacations. We offer your child an unforgettable summer full of action at the foot of Mont Blanc.

 

The objectives for our participants:

  • Study a foreign language by total immersion in an international setting with a multi-lingual team from all over the world.
  • Take part in all sorts of summer sports: rafting, mountain biking, laser game …
  • Become an international citizen by living in a multicultural context with continuous interaction among peers, which naturally leads to the respect of others.
  • Learn about themselves and blossom by exploring all their talents. Exceed their limits to achieve significant accomplishments through sports and discovery activities, and the creative workshops which comprise much of the daily activities of the camp.

 

All of this takes place in an environment which is friendly and secure, the essential building blocks of constructive and stimulating learning.

THE ACCOMMODATION

Accommodation

We consider the quality of the accommodations to be an essential condition for the well being of our campers and therefore our programs are organized solely in top quality hotel. The children appreciate their stay in one of the rooms decorated in the alpine style synonymous with calm, comfort and relaxation. This hotel, very close to the center of Megève and the school, combines tradition and comfort. Children are allocated their rooms depending on the following criteria: same sex, same age group, different native languages.

 

As safety and security are of top importance in our camps, the counselors’ rooms are situated close to the children’s rooms, on the same floor. We are very conscious of allowing the campers time to rest, as needed. Bedtime varies, therefore, depending on their age and the activities planned in the program. To maintain an organization at a comfortable level, we deliberately limit capacity to 50 children / session. This allows us to create a multicultural dynamic and to look after the well being of each of our participants.

 

Meals

Children have their lunchtime meals in a restaurant very close to the school and the evening meals in the hotel restaurant. The menus are prepared by the chef who takes into account a balanced diet and the tastes of the children. We can organize special menus (vegetarian, gluten-free, for religious reasons, etc); we just need to be advised in advance.

 

The facilities

The language lessons and the creative and artistic workshops are held in a school in Megève close to the hotel. We are therefore able to use all of the established infrastructure (classrooms, sports facilities …)

THE ACTIVITIES

The Camp

Every day includes a complete and different program, guaranteeing fun! It’s in a friendly environment,and in safety, that our enthusiastic and dedicated staff organizes the activities of the day. We organize sports and enjoyable activities outside or inside (in bad weather) using the large number of facilities in and around Megève.

 

Campers will participate in the life of Megève by presenting a performance to people of Megève at the end of the week. This is a way to put into practice everything they have learned during their stay, and also to display their artistic talents. Creative workshops such as video editing, scrapbooking,… are also proposed. At the end of the day, we get together for a special event: team games, evening activities, etc. This time is also reserved for reading, dreaming or group discussions.

 

The aim of these activities is to have fun; but we also focus on providing a multilingual environment, because it is at such a time that campers from all over the world communicate together and share emotions. Our programs are also aimed at developing the talents and the physical aptitudes of each participant.

 

The activities are diverse and we promote individual adaptation while creating an overall positive effect on the group. The activities proposed are based on the age of the participants and adapted to their wishes. Week-end excursions visit impressive sites such as the Mer de Glace (Chamonix Mont-Blanc) or the wonderful Lake Annecy.
