Covid-19 Safety


With the great partnership between the experienced Champittet boarding and medical team and our highly qualified SILC Academy trainers, we are in a prime position to secure the health of our students.

During these challenging times of coronavirus, we are thankful to have been able to operate our 2020, 2021, 2022, and 2023 Summer Leadership Camp safely, respecting Swiss federal and cantonal COVID-19 protection guidelines.

Optimal health & safety standards at camp

As we work with students year-round, we are uniquely placed to keep your child safe and healthy while they have an amazing time at camp. Compared to other camps we offer many benefits:

  • Boutique camp with a fun, personal and safe experience in smaller groups than most camps
  • Maximum 2 students per room and significantly more spacious rooms than other camps
  • Large, spacious, and fully private campus with all facilities at hand and closed to outsiders
  • Thorough Covid-19 Protection Plan
  • Camp nurses on campus every day and always on 24-hour standby  
  • Camp staff keep a 1.5 metre distance from students unless wearing a mask
  • Regular temperature checks
  • Covid-19 test if students show symptoms of the virus
  • No seasonal staff: Our team is experienced in working with students from around the world year-round
  • Experienced trainers besides specialised night staff, drivers, kitchen team, cleaning staff and nurses to look after the students 24/7 
  • Hand washing or sanitising before and after every meal, activity and transfer
  • Common areas and student rooms cleaned at an increased frequency
  • Staff undergo health and safety training
  • Trainer to student ratio of 1:5, with an even smaller ratio when including support staff
  • Staff maintain availability at all times, day and night

We hope this reassures you about our best practices and our commitment to delivering the best possible safety and summer camp experience to all of our families.
