The ENSR Summer camp takes place in Champéry, a gorgeous little village on Switzerland’s southern border. Outdoor adventures abound in the stunning alpine region, and the kids get to take advantage of the beautiful scenery during their scheduled afternoon activities.
Throughout their stay, your child will reside at the luxurious Hôtel Suisse Champéry, a charming chalet-style lodging in the heart of the village. All rooms are twin-share with a private bathroom, and there’s opportunity to mingle in the cosy common area, complete with breathtaking mountain views.
To get them there and away, ENSR can provide supervised transfers to the Geneva International Airport, a 1.5-hour drive away.
ENSR has over 60 years of experience running Swiss summer camps and has refined its long-standing programme to optimize learning and fun.
On a typical day, the children do classes in the morning before enjoying activities and free time in the afternoon. Scheduled evening activities vary depending on age.
The camp caters to children and teens aged 9 to 18, both students from all around the world. ENSR pairs participants together with peers of the same age to promote a tight-knit community on the camp.
The summer programme runs for five weeks, from late June to late July. Campers can enrol from one week up to the entire programme—it’s your choice.
Language classes comprise the ENSR summer camp’s educational component, with 22 English or French lessons provided each week. Small class sizes between four and seven students allow teachers to provide personalised attention during these intensive 45 minute periods.
Serious language learners can enroll in the DELF (levels A1 and A2) or Cambridge YLE (Starters, Movers, Flyers) programmes. The four-week preparation course sees students take 88 custom-made classes specifically designed to see them ace the test. Both DELF and Cambridge YLE are prestigious, internationally recognized exams that look superb on a youngster’s CV.
For students who aren’t passionate about linguistics, ENSR offers a multisports programme with activities in lieu of the language component. Available activities include swimming, tennis, mountain biking, beach volleyball, climbing, football, hockey, and more.
Sports, Arts, Fun Activities and Excursions:
Once class is done, the fun starts.
Typical afternoon activities include climbing, walking, swimming, sports, adventure park visits, and cultural excursions to nearby villages. An hour and a half of free time before dinner gives the kids a chance to relax and socialise with their new friends.
On the weekends, your child has the opportunity to visit the fun-filled Europa Park. The two-day excursion (optional and paid separately) gives them ample time to savour Germany’s most exciting amusement park.
