Join one of our Altitude Language Camps to develop your English or French language skills, make new friends from all over the world and experience the most professional, educational, and fun filled language coaching available.

 

Morning Language Lessons 

Our Language Camp is designed for all abilities, from those with no previous experience in their chosen language, through to those wanting to refine their language skills and improve pronunciation and vocabulary. Focus is on students learning to use the language in a conversational way from day one, and activities are purposely designed to feel less like a typical classroom environment, encouraging fun and practical learning.

An Action-Packed Afternoon and Evening Programme

The language programme runs from 9am-12pm, and after lunch campers will also enjoy a balanced afternoon program running until 4pm of sports, team building games, and local excursions together with campers on the mountain adventure camp programme. All residential campers participate in an exciting evening programme each evening, and enjoy an additional excursion day each week on Saturdays.

The international environment of the camp helps children to form new international friendships whilst learning to work alongside other campers.

Our French Language Camp offers children the chance to socialise with international children and local French speakers whilst developing language skills in a friendly and welcoming community.

During the camp, children will build their confidence whilst also acquiring the fundamental skills of conversation, listening, vocabulary and grammar.

Every afternoon and evening will combine an exciting program of activities, sports, team building games and excursions. Children can use this time to practice communicating with fellow French speakers at the camp.

Altitude Summer Camps include full board accommodation in Verbier, Switzerland. The accommodation is provided within typical Swiss private chalets that are conveniently located within walking distance of the main lifts and the town centre of Verbier.

Bedrooms are split boy/girl and we sleep no more than 4 to a room to provide children enough personal space as well as friends to share bunk time and stories with. Private bathrooms are available for each bedroom to encourage hygiene.

Internet, indoor games and table tennis are included in all chalets to allow children to relax during the free time and also to communicate with their parents whilst being away.
We understand the importance of quality accommodation and nutritious food. For this reason, we only use experienced staff, fresh produce and all food is freshly prepared on the day.
We are also happy to cater for all dietary and religious requirements. Altitude staff are co-ordinating activities between 9AM and 9PM and then stay in the chalet with the children so that they are looked after 24 hours a day and on hand in case of an emergency.
After breakfast, children will meet with their language teacher, who after assessing their level, will design a structured learning program for their time at the camp. The language program will include a mixture of classroom and outdoor based learning including vocab, conversation and grammar. Following a healthy lunch children will enjoy the fun filled afternoon activities and excursions. Children then have some free time prior to their evening meal to relax and play, call parents or write their journal. This is followed by a variety of evening entertainments.
