Unique Venue for Children to Grow to Be Self Confident, Independent and Skillful individuals.

Whether you are speaking a new language, horseback riding, playing golf or learning ballet (to name a few), each student will be challenged to go beyond what they ever could have imagined. The school aims to offer junior young learners, ages 6-13, a foundation to forge friendships and enjoy their summers to the fullest. The camp runs from July to August with a minimum stay of two weeks. The camp combines the characteristics of a traditional Swiss boarding school with one of the most advanced learning environments and a commitment to innovate in order to define a new era of education. The camp pioneered the trademarked Individual Development Programme, IDP - a holistic view of the world, inside and outside the classroom that prepares students for university and beyond. Home to students from 50 different nationalities, an average class size of 8 students per class and a teacher to student ratio of 1:2, our Swiss private school is in a unique position to deliver on its mission.
