Location:

The Chantemerle Winter Camp takes place at the exclusive international school of the same name, located in the historic Swiss municipality of Blonay. Sweeping views of Lake Geneva and the majestic Alps stretch out as far as the eye can see—and rest assured, there’s plenty of adventure to be had in those hills. The nearest major city is Lausanne, about a 30-minute drive away.
