Mornings in the mountains

Kids will divide into their morning speciality* depending on whether they have chosen English or French classes or our mountain adventure programme.

*Campers staying more than one week can mix it up and combine more than one speciality.

Action-packed afternoons & evenings

At 12pm, all campers will unite for a nutritious lunch before enjoying an afternoon together which could include sports, excursions, team building games or exciting adventures.

English Language

Designed for all abilities, from beginner to advanced, our language lessons focus on learning to use English in a conversational way. Activities are purposely designed to feel less like a typical classroom environment. For example, sometimes the class will head out to a local market or perhaps practise skills on a treasure hunt.

The Altitude program allows children to develop their confidence whilst acquiring the fundamental skills of vocabulary, conversation and grammar.

French Language

From beginner to advanced, our language lessons welcome all abilities and focus on learning to use French in a conversational way. We design our lessons to feel less like a typical classroom environment and instead, the class will sometimes make the most of Verbier’s French speaking community. Children will interact with locals in practical situations for example asking for directions.
