Finally, Summer is here, our first session begins and we are excited to welcome our first arrivals.
Summer brings a fantastic atmosphere to Les Elfes, the diversity in cultures and nationalities provides a unique atmosphere and special environment. Camp life offers so much to the campers, the activities on offer are broad, and campers have fantastic opportunities to learn and experience new things. Being away for two or three weeks can be tough for many, especially first time campers, with our dedicated team of staff and positive atmosphere campers will develop a little independence and learn how to manage life away from home.Above all else, camp is a global community, all ages from every corner of the globe come through our doors, and from day one are treated the same, emphasizing on respect and caring for others, no matter the race, religion or gender. At Les Elfes our mission is not only to ensure our campers have a fantastic time, enjoying new activities, and take valuable skills away, but to educate our campers on how to value one another as people, to forge friendships for life.
This summer our day camps also run alongside our residential camps, campers can be dropped of to Les Elfes in time for languages at 9am, and picked up in the evening after dinner or evening activities between 7pm-9pm. Day camps offer a good insight into life at Les Elfes, and for younger children works very well, if parents wish for campers to try a night at camp this can be arranged.
As always our Duke of Edinburgh programs are taking place and new to Les Elfes for summer 2017 we are offering a unique chance to complete your Bronze practice and qualifying expeditions at our international camp. Since 2014 Les Elfes has been licensed as one of the first International Trained Activity Providers (ITAP) worldwide to deliver the Adventurous Journey and/or Residential Project of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. We are the first ITAP based in Switzerland. Open to individuals and groups the open Bronze trip will run at our Crans-Montana campus, nestled on a stunning plateau of the Swiss Alps with views of Mt. Blanc from 12th August to 19th August 2017.
