La Garenne Winter Camp
Founded in 1947, La Garenne International School has been running a popular winter camp for many years. We welcome young people from all over the world to our winter camp, which runs between January and March every year for boys and girls aged between 5 and 14 years old.
We offer a combination of fun activities and language learning, and we provide a friendly and welcoming family atmosphere. With one adult for every two children, we also ensure we provide a high quality of care for all our students.
Winter Camp Dates
Our winter camps run from mid-January to mid-March, and we offer both day camps and boarding camps. Each camp lasts for two weeks, and they are all open to boys and girls aged from 5 years old up to 14. Children come to our winter camp from countries all over the world, creating a truly international atmosphere.
Winter sports make up the bulk of our winter camp activities, and we provide both skiing and snowboarding lessons. We offer lessons for complete beginners right up to advanced skiers of all ages so everyone will be placed into a class that is suitable for their skill level.
Winter sports lessons are held in both morning and afternoon sessions for six days a week, providing students with plenty of opportunities to improve their skills. Beginners can learn techniques like parallel turns, while intermediate and advanced skiers will go higher up the mountain and get the chance to work on and improve advanced techniques.
We provide professional and experienced instructors, and we offer a wide range of equipment hire that is modern, safe and renewed regularly.
Other Winter Camp Activities
Besides skiing and snowboarding, we also provide optional language lessons for all our students. We can offer up to 8 hours of lessons a week in English, French, German or Spanish.
We also run regular excursions to sights of interest in the surrounding area. We run one day trip each week, and everyone is welcome to come along.
We also offer lots of fun evening activities including torchlight walks, ice hockey, ice skating and even a disco.
Days typically start with breakfast at 8:00 am, followed by a morning of winter sports lessons. Lunch is at midday, followed by a further afternoon of winter sports, and students can then enjoy a couple of hours of free time. After dinner, we provide a variety of fun activities and games, and excursions are held on some days.
Students will eat very well during their time at our winter camp! We offer a full continental breakfast every day, a warm lunch with a choice of menus, hot chocolate back at camp once activities are over, and a hot, fresh dinner every evening with a healthy three-course meal
