Read more
‘Be Happy And Never, Never, Never Give Up!’ With this motivational motto and set in the whimsical French-speaking ski resort of Villars-sur-Ollon, the La Garenne School Winter Camp is the ideal setting for your child to live well and learn. Choose from either a dedicated ski programme for maximum fun or a ski and study combo for an educational twist.


The picture-perfect alpine village of Villars-sur-Ollon lies within easy reach of some of the Alp’s best downhill runs. When you are not tearing up the snow, the area abounds with other enticing winter activities. The site boasts sweeping views of the majestic Mont Blanc, the Rhone Valley, and the Swiss Riviera. Transfers are available from the train station and airport to enable your Winter Camp to get off the smoothest possible start.

School Info:

Since 1945, La Garenne International School has been one of the leading private boarding schools to offer tuition in the Swiss Alps. This exclusive co-ed institution operates on a philosophy of traditional values of responsibility, kindness and security within a warm family atmosphere. To optimise well-being, the school maintains ‘Four Pillars’: a balanced diet, ample sleep, varied activities and a healthy mind.

Winter Program:

The winter programme is available to both day and boarding students with a minimum stay of a week. You can choose from a Super Ski Programme or an Integration and Ski Programme. The latter includes academic classes in the morning with snow sports most afternoons (depending on the weather).

The Super Ski Programme lets you hit the slopes for up to five hours per day, spread between morning and afternoon sessions. A professional ski or snowboard instructor is on hand to help them hone their skills and enforce safe skiing practices.

Both programmes have activities in the evening, from reading and sports to arts and games.

Transfers, photo packages, birthday celebrations, health insurance, and private language classes can be incorporated into the programme on request.


Any dates between Sunday 8th January and Friday 17th March 2023 (minimum one week stay).
