COVID-19

As restrictions in Switzerland and across Europe are being lifted and schools in Switzerland are opening again, we are pleased to let you know that our Summer Leadership Camp in Switzerland will be proceeding as planned.

The Swiss government has confirmed that border restrictions to all 27 EU countries as well as Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and the UK will be lifted on June 15th. A decision on allowing non-European travelers will be made by July 6th at the latest.

According to an independent study of 100 countries and regions as part of their COVID-19 Regional Safety Assessment, Deep Knowledge Group found Switzerland to be the safest region in the world. For the full study see http://analytics.dkv.global/covid-regional-assessment-200-regions/full-report.pdf

Thanks to the great partnership between the experienced Champittet boarding and medical team as well as our highly qualified SILC Academy trainers, we are in a prime position to secure the health of our students during this challenging time, and to keep your child safer than at any other camp in Switzerland.

  • Large, spacious, and fully private campus with all facilities at hand and closed to outsiders

  • Camp nurses on campus every day and always on 24-hour standby  
  • Camp staff keep a 2m 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 
  • Sanitising gel available in all common areas and on off-campus activities
  • 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
