For a better future

Cooking_leclassique_roseycamps 1

Course Description

This July will be archived as a “Classic” in the memory of your child

Like a movie or a book, the summer camp has a potential to be called as a classic.  It all starts with the drive to a fairy tale terrain that winds past vineyards, the shimmering lake and a backdrop of snow capped mountains. Old chestnut trees welcome you at the gate as you drive toward the 14th century château. World-Class Classic summer camp program at Lake Geneva is your child’s introduction to truly international culture in the world’s most exclusive boarding school.


In Rolle, 30km from Geneva city, the main campus (for the boys) and the La Combe campus (for the girls) are situated within landscaped grounds covering 30 hectares.

The campus was established in 1880 in the chateau with its extensive estate. The historic original building, dating back to the 14th century, was then a run-down medieval castle, but it was carefully renovated and the campus improved during the 20th century.

The Paul & Henri Carnal Hall, known as the school’s Arts & Learning Centre, includes a cooking lab, visual arts and photography rooms, theatre and music studios. At the heart of the building is located the 900- seat concert hall.

Art Activities_leclassique_roseycamps 1



In our Lake Geneva Campus, students are grouped according to age: Juniors (8-12 years old), and Seniors (13 to 15 years old).

Juniors and Seniors live in separate buildings. A Junior student may not share a room with a Senior. 

Juniors have an early bedtime (21h30 vs 22h00 for the Seniors); Juniors and Seniors follow similar weekend excursions but are divided into 2 groups; in the dining room, Juniors and Seniors are assigned to different tables. 

Boys and girls sleep in separate buildings. However, sports and activities are mixed. 

Some of the youngest Juniors may be in a co-ed building, where one floor is for boys and one floor is for girls. 

Counsellors and teachers live on the floor with the students. The aim is to create a family atmosphere, to ensure the well-being of each child and to have a permanent presence to maintain order and security. 

We allocate rooms 24h before camp starts and this information is not provided to parents in advance. Any request to share a room with someone in particular must be communicated to the school  at least one week before the camp starts. No room changes will be allowed after that. We try to make sure that each room is occupied by 2 different nationalities/cultures to ensure an intercultural exchange can happen. 

All our rooms are spacious twins with ensuite bathrooms. A mini-safe is provided per student. All bedding and towels are provided. 

There is no air conditioning in the rooms. Fans, however, are available in case of a heat wave. 


Internationally inspired meals are served buffet style. Meals are prepared by our own chefs who pay meticulous attention to quality, presentation and flavour to produce healthy, balanced menus. During mealtimes, each student is assigned a table which is also shared with the camp teachers. Attendance at all meals is compulsory.

Any food allergies (gluten free, lactose free, peanuts, etc.) should be clearly indicated in the health questionnaire. Meals on the menu containing pork will be indicated. Vegetarian menus are also offered.

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide Kosher, Halal or vegan meals.

We know how important birthdays are, and especially so if it’s the first time the children are celebrating it away from home. We’ll organise cakes, balloons and sing happy birthday in the dining room.

There are two periods for the Academy of your choice on Saturday morning. For the rest of the weekend excursions and activities both on- and off-campus await! These range from adventures in the Alps, karting, laser tag, practicing water sports at our **nautical centre **and more.
