Summer Camp in Switzerland: Student Leadership

Leadership skills are developed throughout camp through fun and challenging outdoor activities. Our main goal is for students to have the time of their lives while learning at the same time and experiencing Switzerland.

Our international team of senior trainers facilitate students’ development of communication skills, goal setting, time management techniques, teamwork, and many other important life skills.

Our camp is open to all students aged 11 to 17 and is suitable to all fitness and experience levels!

Students will also learn about “savoir vivre” and etiquette, and have the opportunity to participate in a variety of workshops such as first aid training, dancing, outdoor and media workshops while learning to work more effectively in teams. 

Highly experienced experts, trainers and guides take students through fun challenges, workshops, games and outdoor activities in a breath-taking mountain setting of the Swiss outdoors. Participants will receive feedback at the end of each activity as well as a certificate and Personal Action Plan at the end of the camp.
