The Les Elfes Winter Camp takes place in Verbier, a pristine winter wonderland overlooking the majestic Mount Grand Combin. The stunning south-facing plateau receives both an abundance of powder and sunshine each season, making it among the most sought-after spots to ski in the Swiss Alps. Happy campers get to lay their weary heads at a Swiss alpine chalet, a charming stone and wood construction where luxury and tradition meet. Some 450km of ski runs operate from December to April each year, accessed by a network of over a hundred lifts spread between its four distinct valleys.
Ever since its foundation in 1987, Les Elfes has been running unforgettable seasonal camps for boys and girls aged 6 to 17. Each camp is carefully curated to be safe, educational, challenging, and fun, and always has ample opportunity to mingle with an international crowd. Of the 5,000+ happy campers that visit every year, 90% are repeat customers—a testament to the programme’s resounding success. Holistic personal development, cross-cultural experiences, and in-depth learning are among the foundation’s core principles.
A typical day at the Les Elfes Winter Camp involves an early wake-up, breakfast, skiing, lunch, more skiing, an excursion or optional activity, dinner, and some après-ski entertainment. Optional language courses and excursions are available for parents who want their child to develop outside the piste. Après ski entertainment and activities continue until 9 or 10 pm, depending on the age of the group.
New optional activities: Surfing in the Swiss Alps in the pool with artificial waver in Sion (CHF 200.-) and Paragliding (CHF 180.-).
Sports, Arts, Fun Activities and Excursions:
Although skiing and snowboarding is undoubtedly the main attraction, Les Elfes offers an array of other fun-filled ventures: quizzes, discos, games competitions, campfire nights, movie nights, mountain BBQs, team challenges, ice skating, restaurant meals, and a farewell prize-giving event, to name a few.
One to four week-programmes from the beginning of December until the end of April.
