Chantemerle keeps campers busy and happy. If there is still some spare time left, or if your child has additional interests, there are many other activities: painting, cooking, chocolate making workshops, creative design, survival skills and robotics.
“Chantemerle's got Talent”: this performing arts workshop and show allows all children to find their passion in songwriting and singing, ballroom dancing, juggling, balance acts, trapeze, games, theater, human pyramids or preparing the Friday show with set design, painting, make-up, costumes, photo and film. Children are guided by professional circus and performing arts teachers.
As the beautiful environment of Chantemerle calls for, there is also lots to do in the great outdoors. Kids can choose from group sports like soccer, basketball and volleyball. Badminton and archery, tennis, ping pong, unihockey, swimming, sailing, kayaking or stand-up paddling are also available.
Adventure parks such as Aqua Splash, Aqua Park and Zip Lining are also fun and safe outdoor activities. The highlight of the camp must be the overnight trip “sleeping under the stars” in the Swiss mountains.

Additionally, the 2-day trip to Europapark in Germany with an overnight stay and picnic is also a favorite among all children.
