Summer camp at Chantemerle:
Learn and discover, have fun and make new friends
Founded in 1966 by the Wegmüller family, Chantemerle school is a private boarding school for students ages 6 to 18. The school is beautifully located at about 100 km from Geneva airport, overlooking Lake Leman and the Swiss Alps. Over the years, Chantemerle has acquired an international reputation for academic excellence and its personalized family environment.
Chantemerle summer camp is best defined as an educational camp with fun activities. Language learning is at the core of our educational program. Also proposed this summer is an innovative Science and Entrepreneurship course. These courses can be combined with professional sport training camps, e.g. the Juventus Soccer Academy and the Thabo basketball camp.
With a maximum capacity of 70 boarding students, Chantemerle offers a personalized family environment where one learns to live in community, developing its sense of responsibilities while studying and having fun. All campers are accommodated on-site at Chantemerle. They are grouped by age, sex and affinity (from 2 to 4 children per room) in spacious and comfortable rooms with a magnificent view of Lake Geneva and the Alps. Hotel service includes the supply of bed linen, daily cleaning of the room and laundry and ironing of personal linen. A team of experienced supervisors and facilitators ensures a permanent presence in the boarding school in order to offer optimal study and living conditions.
We pay particular attention to the nutritional balance of our students. Our chef Stephan is at the kitchen and cooks his own meals with passion. We supply fresh products to local producers (vegetables, eggs) and offer daily vegetarian menus. Every Sunday, Chantemerle produces its own bread from locally produced flours. Special diet requirements (Halal, vegetarian, gluten-free, etc..) can be put in place after talking with the parents.
Sports and nature
After class activities are numerous and include team sports (football, basketball and volleyball), tennis, fitness circuits, indoor climbing and archery, water sports on the Gruyère lake (kayaking, SUP). One of the highlights of our summer is our Adventure day with an overnight stay in the Swiss mountains “under the star” or in a group accommodation. It is a unique outdoor experience combining mountain hikes, developing knowledge and understanding of the nature and the Swiss alps.
Arts & crafts, performing arts
Monday and Friday afternoon are dedicated to various arts & crafts, painting, cooking and chocolate workshops, costume design workshops, photo and video workshops. “Chantemerle got talent” is one of the great traditions of the Summer camps of Chantemerle. On the program: songwriting and singing, ballroom dancing, juggling, balance, games, theater play, human pyramids, preparation of the Friday show (paintings, make-up, costumes, photo / film). Professionals circus and performing arts teachers (singing, theater and music) are on board to animate these workshops.
Cultural visits and excursions
Chantemerle is fortunate to have its own buses and drivers and can offer a rich program of visits and excursions to discover Switzerland in all its forms: Basel (Switzerland’s cultural heart), Geneva (the city of international organizations), Bern (the capital with its bears and its Paul Klee museum), Lausanne (the Olympic museum, the Brut art museum and its old town), Vevey, the town of Charlie Chaplin and its didactic museums (Chaplin’s world, Alimentarium and the Swiss Museum of Photography). Finally our great classics: boat trip on Lake Geneva, visit of the chocolate factory in Broc, Montreux Jazz festival, the salt mines of Bex.
2-day trip to Europa-Park
During the weeks 2, 4 and 6 of our Summer camp, all the students of Chantemerle leave for a 2 day excursion to Europa-Park in Germany with a visit to Basel, its museums and its zoo. Just a stone’s throw from Basel, Europa-Park is the largest seasonal leisure park in the world with more than 100 dream attractions, 10 European and eight thematic districts.
