Experience Summer Camp in Switzerland

Summer at Beau Soleil is an extraordinary adventure for campers who come to Switzerland from across the world. Campers from 8 - 17 years of age join a wide range of activities and share engaging language lessons which combine to create the perfect Swiss summer experience. 

Join our campers in July 2024 and get a taste of life at College Alpin Beau Soleil!

Camp Life

Here in the heart of the Swiss Alps, we take advantage of our spectacular surroundings and safe, clean environment.  International friendships are formed and our happy campers leave with just one desire: to come back again!

Our campers follow an exciting programme which includes language lessons each morning (French, English or Spanish) and a wide range of activities each afternoon and evening.

Where are campers accommodated?

Girls and boys are houses in separate accommodation with the majority of our campers sharing twin rooms. We have buildings with different types of rooms. Campers will be allocated to a building based on their age and gender.

Which airport should my child fly to?

Beau Soleil organises transfers from Geneva airport on arrival and departure days and these transfers are included in the camp fees.

My child is flying with an unaccompanied minor service

Please inform our team if your child is flying as a UM and we will confirm the name of the person assisting 1 week before flights.  Please note that this service incurs an additional charge from both the airline and Beau Soleil.

Does my child need a visa?

Campers from certain countries will require a visa to enter Switzerland, which may take up to two weeks to process.  Please check with the Swiss embassy in your country.

Who will my child share their room with?

Should your child wish to share their room with a friend, please let us know in advance and we will do our best to meet your request. However, we cannot promise your request will be possible. If no special request is provided, we aim to ensure that each room is occupied by students of differing nationalities in order to encourage the sharing of cultures.

What sort of food is served at camp?

Meals are prepared by our own chefs who pay meticulous attention to quality, presentation and flavour to produce healthy, balanced menus. Vegetarian menus are also offered. Any meals on the menu containing pork will carry an indication. We often organize BBQs and themed food evenings.

Attendance at all meals is compulsory. Children and staff share mealtimes. If your child has a food allergy, it should be mentioned in the medical form upon enrolment.

How much pocket money should my child have?

Pocket money is paid in advance for each camper. Campers will be able to withdraw small sums of pocket money, each day (Monday to Friday) with the remaining balance returned to the camper upon departure.  We recommend 150 Chf per week. If you wish to leave extra pocket money with the Direction, please note that only cash in Swiss Francs can be received.  We would discourage campers from having large sums of money.

What happens if my child gets sick?

The school has two nursing staff who are available daily on campus for minor ailments and to ensure children take their medication. Any prescribed medication is kept and administered by the nurse; self-medication is not allowed.  This rule also applies to homeopathic medication which should be discussed with nursing staff upon arrival.  Nursing staff work in close collaboration with the local doctors and hospital for any more serious issues.

Should my child bring a mobile phone or other electronic device?

In order for our campers to best enjoy their time at camp, we limit the use of mobile phones and other electronic devices to specific times each day.

What language can my child study this summer?

This summer, we are offering a diverse selection of language courses to help your child develop their language skills. French, English, Spanish and Chinese are the languages that our courses focus on and teach. Your child's level will be assessed on the first day and they will be placed into a class relative to their ability.

If have any more questions please feel free to ask.
