Chantemerle summer camp at a glance


Founded in 1966 by Mathilde and Jean Wegmüller, Chantemerle is a family-owned and operated boarding school with over 50 years of experience in education. Beautifully nestled in nature between Geneva and Montreux, Chantemerle overlooks lake Geneva and the Swiss Alps.


Chantemerle proposes a full range of engaging, practical and fun learning programs combined with a wide range of sports and games, outdoor adventures, workshops and exciting excursions.

Sports, Arts & Nature

After the class and during the weekends, students can participate in selected sports, artistic activities as well as nature and cultural excursions.

Starting at CHF 3’600.- for 2 weeks, our rates reflect the quality of our program, the calm and serenity of the boarding school as well as the commitment of our educational team. See here our information brochure 2021 with fees.


In the warmth and safety of an extended family, an international community of about 60 students spend memorable times learning new skills and becoming autonomous and responsable. An exceptional team of dedicated and experienced educators ensures individual attention to every child.


An international community of more than 60 students learning to live together, developing their sense of responsibility while studying and having fun.


Since March 2020, Chantemerle has stepped up to the challenges of Covid-19 and the demands of existing parents worried about the safety of their children and the pandemic impact on their continued education. Chantemerle successfully reopened its doors last May, and remained open for the summer camps and the current school year. We are lucky to have our own in-house nurse and staff to implement efficient protection safety measures and quarantine services. Moreover, being in a “closed environment” in nature makes it easier for us to create a safer environment for all our students.
