Course Description

In Leysin American Summer Camp, you will first choose from three morning programs: the Language Track , the Academic Track, or the Sports Track.

Next you'll choose your afternoon club, followed by an afternoon activity!

Language Track (English or French)

The Language Track is an intensive course which immerses students in their chosen language (English or French) in order to increase skills, confidence, and ability. Students are divided by age and ability within each group. This program will also require students to do an afternoon club focusing on building their language skills.

Academic Track

The Academic Track is made up of three programs: the Maker-space Program, the Nature of Math Program, and the Unsolved Mysteries Program.

MAKER-SPACE PROGRAM Students spend the first few days learning 3D modeling using Tinkercad and begin 3D printing in the first week.The second week will be used for upcycling projects: using recycled materials or a laser cutter to create interesting art pieces or practical items

NATURE OF MATH PROGRAM In this course, students reach beyond formulas and computations to explore the mathematics behind patterns, relationships, and real-world problems.

UNSOLVED MYSTERIES PROGRAM Students in the Unsolved Mysteries class work on improving basic academic skills that will transfer to the school year (such as touch typing, note taking, citation, and public speaking) through their exploration of this course's content

Sport Track

TENNIS PROGRAM The LAS Summer Tennis Program offers a quality tennis camp for all ages and abilities. Players will flourish through challenging and fun training on court. The program will also increase their personal and social skills while interacting with coaches and fellow tennis players.

MOUNTAIN LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM (MLDP) The LAS Mountain Leadership Development Program (MLDP) promotes environmental responsibility and awareness, while developing resilience, confidence, leadership, and communication skills through a variety of vigorous outdoor activities. Students can earn points towards their Duke of Edinburgh award.

Clubs & Activities

LAS Summer Clubs are a great way to expand interests and meet new friends from outside morning programs. Options will include Cooking and Baking, Music and Art, and Team Sports and Fitness. 

Afternoon activities add extra variety to students' daily schedules. Options may include, (but are not limited to!) arts and crafts, biking, hiking and climbing, dance, team sports, horseback riding, games, music, and more!

All students also have the opportunity to participate in excursions throughout the summer! Some of the past exciting trips we have offered include Zermatt, Bern, Interlaken, Zurich!


Each LAS Summer in Switzerland dorm is home to students and several live-in faculty members. These staff members are available throughout the summer to ensure our students have access to guidance, care, and support throughout their time in Leysin.

Students will also experience the summer with a roommate. Living with a roommate is a particularly valuable experience as it teaches students about new cultures, how to live respectfully and harmoniously with someone else, and most importantly it offers the potential of a lifelong friendship. Most of our students say that living with other students and making new friends from around the world is their favorite part of summer school.
