Collège du Léman Summer Camps have brought a fantastic summer experience to thousands of students over the past decade, always with a focus on learning new languages.

The beautiful campus is enhanced further by its proximity to Geneva, so it is natural that parents have relied on us to provide an unforgettable summer experience for their children, enjoying the best that a summer in Switzerland can offer. Being only 15 minutes from the airport, you can be sure that all our time is focused on great activities, not transit!

This year, after an extensive multi million investment programme, we are preparing for our best summer camp experience ever. With the help of our brand new facilities and our fantastic staff, we have expanded the offerings to allow an even more diverse set of activities to suit all tastes.

Whether you are interested in an academic focus, something for the technology minded, the arts or sports, we have something for you!

Programme Descriptions

The Genius Programme

For the student whose thirst for knowledge is unquenchable- a set of options that allows students to learn a new language, to take on the challenges of science in our state of the art science laboratories, to delve further into software programming or robotics, or to become a leader for the future through our international relations programme.

Where better to start than Collège du Léman, situated in Geneva? Our world famous academic programme will provide all the help you need to learn new skills.

The Action Programme

For the student who loves being active and creative- from sports, to drama, music or art, we’ve got something to make you happy. Here you will find options that allow students to follow their passion at whatever level they desire, from group lessons to tailored individual solutions.

Based on the shores of Lake Geneva, we have a water sports option, or perhaps you enjoy horse-riding, tennis, swimming, football, or basketball? Perhaps you could try your hand at circus acts like juggling, trapeze, or trampolines? The art classes and music options are fantastic too. Or maybe you’d prefer the glamour of drama and dance?

The Masters Programme

Still can’t decide? If you want a mix of knowledge and activities, we’ve got just the thing for you- our Masters Programme allows you to mix an activity from the Genius Programme in the morning, with one from the Action Programme in the afternoon- a balanced act for the student who wants to excel inside and outside the classroom.

We have something for everyone… which programme will you choose?

Options

International Relations: Fancy yourself as a future leader? This course is both inside and outside the classroom, developing knowledge of different styles of leadership while delving into international politics. Where better to do this than in Geneva, the seat of the United Nations?
Please note that this course is only open to those aged 12 and above.

English or French Classes: An opportunity to learn English or French- with extensive experience of helping students develop their language skills, our professional teachers cater for all levels of learning, from beginner through to advanced. We don’t simply look at the languages though- we develop an understanding of culture through tours outside the classroom, in Geneva.

Crime Scene Laboratory: Discover the wonders of science in this fun class, looking at different scientific methods used in the laboratory today. Using our state of the art science laboratories, as well as the passion of our experienced teachers, you will develop a better understanding of science and scientific methods.

Robotics: A hands on course that deals with the mechanics and logic of building something, together with the skills of simple programming. The result is a fun course that opens up a world of possibilities, using the world famous Lego brand Robot kits. Guided by our activity leaders this is model building taken to a completely new level!

Computer Programming: If you’re interested in learning about programming, then this is the course for you. You’ll learn about coding, and developing software. In addition, you’ll be able to develop your own app! Under the guidance of experts in the field of programming, this is a course that looks to equip you for the future!

Hollywood: Bring on the glamour! This is a course that includes elements of dance and drama. Contemporary and Hip Hop dance classes and choreography on the Dance side, while the Drama side aims not just to look at performance, but at elements of public speaking and voice projection. All of this is brought together under the expert eyes of our activity.

Option Descriptions

Media: Something for those who crave a creative adventure using 21st century tools- register to this activity to gain experience in video making, in designing websites and in developing through educationally minded gaming- there’s a lot of research pointing to the benefits of some games in improving decision making in the young. Certainly this is a great activity for the digitally minded.

Picasso: If you’re interested in Art, then we’ve got what you need- experts to teach you about painting in different styles. Add to that a wonderful Arts and Crafts programme, with a fantastic course in photography, rounded off by outings to visit famous museums; you’ll be able to develop your interest and skills to take you to new levels.

Olympic: An opportunity to practice and develop your skills in the sporting arena- we have football, basketball, volleyball, softball and many more. Our campus has just benefited from a multi-million development programme, and we have a brand new look with state of the art buildings for you to have a great time.

Circus: If clowning around is what you like, we’ve got just the ticket for you- an opportunity to learn circus tricks, practice on the trampoline and develop your acrobatics, not to mention the trapeze experience for the adventurous ones. All this in a circus tent on our beautiful campus- you’ll be set for a great summer experience.

All Star: A personalized programme to allow you to develop skills in whatever you would like – choose from tennis, golf, sailing, horse riding, swimming or music lessons for the length of your stay, specializing in your chosen activity. Depending on the activity there will be a teacher between 1 to 5 students who will take you throughout the week to master your chosen activity, regardless of your starting level.

Lake Geneva: With Lake Geneva on our doorstep, why not try out this thrilling programme which includes elements of water skiing, wake boarding, paddle boarding, kayaking, and sailing.
