Welcome to Les Elfes International in Verbier, Switzerland!Since 1987, we provide children and teenagers from 7-18 years old from all around the world with summer, winter & spring camps that combine the discovery and the practice of new exciting sports with learning and perfecting languages such as French, German, English, Spanish and Chinese. During Winter Camp, from the beginning of December until the end of April, Les Elfes proposes several sessions, usually from 1 to 2 weeks long. Our campers can choose among ski or snowboard lessons, from very beginner to advanced level, combined with optional language lessons and exciting after-ski activities and excursions. Skiing and snowboarding are taught by professional instructors qualified by the Swiss School. Our students are fully supervised and divided into groups of 2-8 children each according to their skiing/snowboarding level. Typically, the teaching day consists of learning new skills in the morning and having the opportunity to practice those skills on the slops throughout the afternoon. A hot chocolate is prepared for when the group is feeling tired!Security is fundamental for us! From the moment children wake up until they go to bed, after the varied evening activities organized by Les Elfes, children are under permanent Les Elfes staff supervision in order to ensure a maximum of fun in a very safe environment.At Les Elfes, we provide adventurous activities built on a well-established foundation of professional and safe practices! Moreover, we lead children to develop personally and to explore their own identities. Finally, we are glad to see that the weeks spent at our campus make students discover their true potentials, improve their self-confidence and help them to identify their strengths! There is a lot that can be taught outside a classroom!We will be glad to welcome your children either as Day Campers or Residential Campers!
