Les Elfes
International All-Year Round Camps
in Verbier, Switzerland

Since 1987, Les Elfes International, founded by Philippe and Nicole Stettler, has been offering winter, spring and summer camps for children aged 6 to 17 in Verbier, Crans-Montana and La Tzoumaz in the Swiss Alps.

Our priorities are :

  • the safety of the children;
  • the development of the children through socialisation and quality activities and excursions.

Our mission: children leave with memories they will cherish forever.

To complete our staff, we are looking for motivated, responsible and dynamic people who have experience of working with children.
Because you are the main contact with the children, your importance is paramount to our mission.


  • Hold an EU passport. For other nationalities, we can only offer a GAP (trainee) contract with a maximum validity of 90 days.
  • Experience working in a camp or with young people aged between 6 – 18 years old
  • English is a must, and any additional language is a plus: All daily communication in the camp between staff and children is in English.
  • Hold a clean CRB check (criminal record check) from your country of origin

What qualities are we looking for?

We are looking for dynamic and enthusiastic people who enjoy working with children, supporting and encouraging them to discover new experiences/activities in a caring way.

We expect you to socialise with the children, lead group activities with pedagogy, and be positive in order to offer our campers an unforgettable holiday.

To ensure the safety of the children, we are looking for staff who are patient, attentive, proactive, and able to make decisions in stressful situations.

For the organisation of daily activities, we are looking for creative, team-oriented, responsible, and punctual people.
