Welcome to Village Camps
Why we love it
Good to know
For over 47 years, the delightful alpine village of Leysin perched high above Lake Geneva, has been at the heart of the Village Camps Summer Camp programme. The camp has welcomed thousands of youngsters from all over the world. With campers typically coming from more than 30 different countries in each session, making new ‘international’ friends is easy!
Accommodation is at the Village Camps owned and operated Swiss Alpine Centre from where campers enjoy a friendly welcome, very comfortable accommodation and hearty meals. From the sunny south-facing terraces there are amazing, panoramic views over to the distant French Alps. The Centre is the base for the Village Camps specialist programmes for children in the 7-17 age-range offering a wide-ranging choice of fun-packed outdoor adventure, sports of all kinds, language studies, arts, science and award-winning Leadership Training courses. In 2018 Village Camps introduced something completely new – a fascinating VC-STEM Robotics and coding course.
Everyone will have time to enjoy the pure mountain air and the natural environment of this alpine paradise with its meadows, forests and wild-life. Highlights include a hike where campers taste homemade cheese and ice cream, a visit to the shores of the beautiful Lake and great international city of Geneva.
