As part of the Les Elfes international summer camp Switzerland experience, our young adults will spend a night in a mountain hut in Switzerland.

The mountain hut experience is usually carried out during the second day of the camp. This is a great opportunity for our participants to interact with each other and get to know each other better. At the end of this activity, our students will be closer together and the rest of their stay will be even more memorable.

The Discovery group can go to “Bonatchiesse” near Verbier. The older group, on the other hand, will try out real mountain huts, of which the canton of Valais is rich. In the evening, our youngsters will be able to gather around a big campfire and eat lots of marshmallows and smores. Campers will tell stories and sing camp songs, laughing and sharing memories with other summer campers from around the world. The next morning, students will wake up and eat a yummy breakfast of cereal, bread, jam and butter. Then they may build shelters out of wood or explore the area nearby.

Explorers and pioneers may go to Lac Tanay, a beautiful, picturesque lake situated an hour away from Verbier. Campers will reach the destination via bus and hike up to the traditional mountain huts in this area. The cabins have rules and will show to students their assigned dormitories. In the summer, it may be very hot, so summer campers can use their pocket money to buy ice cream.

Kids may go to the forest to collect firewood to make a big campfire next to the lake. For dinner, they may have a delicious dinner of salad, spaghetti bolognese and crème brûlée made especially for them by the landlady of the mountain hut.

After dinner, they may tell ghost stories and even sing songs. If a student knows to play a musical instrument he/she may want to bring it along for the singing we do around the summer campfire. The following day, students might hike up to a stunning waterfall, and have a picnic lunch by the lake and even go swimming in a mountain lake. After, they may play a big game of capture the flag and then hike back down to the buses to head back to the international summer camp.
