A summer spent with 100 peers from around the world, playing, learning and exploring, in the heart of French speaking Switzerland sounds like a summer well spent. 

They say Brilliantmont is not just a school but a way of life. Whether you want your child to learn a new language, play sports, explore the world and other cultures or just have the time of their lives, they will fit right in. For children aged 10-17, this course is designed for holistic development inside and outside the classroom. 

Brilliantmont encourages individuality in every child and welcomes them into an inclusive, caring environment. Five minutes from the heart of Lausanne, the campus sits among large, beautiful gardens. There are eight structures, some dating back to the early 1900s that have been equipped with state of the art classrooms and boarding facilities. 

There are outdoor tennis courts, a full sized gymnasium and ample outdoor spaces. In fact the school grounds look over Lake Léman and the Swiss Alps. 

The Brillantmont Summer Course is a combination of French or English lessons, sports and a diverse set of activities. Children will work on grammar, language structure, communication and fluency via classroom activities as well as real life interactions with native speakers. Their sports menu includes playing on the trampoline, football, tennis, stand-up paddling and more. Students will also take part in cooking workshops, coding and robotics, arts and crafts, cinema nights, ice skating and even a Tik-Tok challenge! The course includes excursions involving high ropes, hiking, boat trips, museum workshops, city discoveries and mountain karting. Every week is packed to the brim with the perfect balance of intellectual stimulation, physical exercise and cultural exploration.

Course Description

The Brillantmont Summer Course is perfectly designed to level up your child’s language skill, offer a wonderful opportunity to participate in team and solo sports, exercise their creativity, learn coding and explore the region. 

Children will choose a language to learn as well as sports options or choose a combination of sports, creative arts or coding or more. 

Children take a test to assess their language skills and determine which class they will attend. The average class size is 12 so there is a lot of personal attention. Students focus on grammar, language structure, communication and fluency. This classroom learning is then bolstered in confidence building when they use their new language skills in real life situations (at the market, or in a cathedral or exhibition). The language classes are taught by dynamic teachers who make learning engaging and fun. There is a small progress check every Friday. When you leave, the Directors will give you a certificate with grades and teacher’s commentary to measure your progress and guide you to further develop your skills. 

Parents must choose either the Multisports Programme or the Multi-mix Programme. 

The Multisports programme places children in similar age groups, separated into boys and girls. Children are offered the chance to try different sports every day. Some take place by the lake, on a banana boat or stand-up paddling. Other sports are played on campus like tennis, basketball, football, frisbee, zumba, running, etc.

The Multi-mix programme offers 2 afternoons of sports per week and 2 afternoons of a special option. The options are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis and there are limited spaces. Your special options are as follows:

Option 1: Tennis Pro - where children work with professional coaches. This is not suitable for beginners. There are 8 places per week and available on weeks, 1,2,3,4,5,6.

Option 2: French Fun - children visit a local landmark, develop fluency and their writing and dissertation skills. This is suitable for students with a minimum B1 level in French.  Available weeks 1,2,3,4,5,6.  

Option 3: Creative Arts - Students work in the Brilliantmont Art Studio learning how to use oils, work with photography, sculpture, design jewellery, study art and design and crafts. This is suitable for all levels and taught in English.   Available weeks 1,2,3,4.  

Option 4: Coding and Robotics - build a programmable robot while learning computer programming and logical problem solving. Please note, this option incurs an additional cost of CHF100.- per week (8 places per week). This is suitable for all levels and taught in English.   Available weeks 1,2,3,4.  

There are excursions every Wednesday. Children may visit the Cailler chocolate factory (yes, they end with tasting sessions!) or the Olympic Museum or Lausanne University for a science workshop. This is followed by a wind-down by the lake for a tasty barbeque and games until sunset. 

Saturdays are dedicated to exploring Lausanne - whether you visit the Chaplin museum, the Aquarium or go further afield into Berne. Sundays are for adventure, depending on the weather. Water sports on the lake, caves in Valorbe, underground salt mines in Bex, the Aquaparc and more - the adrenalin will run high.
