Summer Camp

Back
The IIL summer camp offers students from 6 to 12 years old the opportunity to discover community life away from home and the school environment. It takes place from Monday to Friday during the first week of the school holidays.

Discover a new environment thanks to our private school


The camp is open primarily to our students but children from outside the school are also welcome, subject to the availability of places in our private school. Up 40 French and English speaking children attend each year.

With the Alps barely a stone's throw away, they make the ideal destination for a summer camp. Children can enjoy a few days in the mountains, which they are often only familiar with in the winter season, where the key focus is on outdoor activities and team games. Away from their usual everyday environment, they form firm friendships and discover the pleasures of life in a group.

IIL staff are in charge of activities and the general management of the camp and are all well-known to children from the international school. The safe, familiar environment is ideally suited to children for whom this is a first experience away from home.

Activities are adapted to numbers, the age of the children and inevitably, to weather conditions. During the day, they may include hiking, swimming or other sports, whereas in the evening, various indoor and outdoor games are organised around the chalet. Children are also encouraged to come up with their own ideas.

Healthy food and respect for the environment lie at the heart of the organisation of the camp.  Children take an active part in daily chores such tidying their rooms, laying the table and washing up, and helping younger members of the group. They learn about the responsibilities that come with community life, which in turn helps them to gain independence.

While it's a perfect way to start the holidays, the summer camp is more than just a fun week among friends. Children learn about values and behaviour which are central to their development as they get older.
