La Garenne Winter Camp

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 students aged from 6 and 16 years old.

Winter Camp Dates

Our winter camps run from January to March, and we offer both day camps and boarding camps. The minimum stay is one week.

Winter Sports

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 can be combined with academic lessons alongside our existing students. Alternatively, Winter Campers can spend the day on the slopes with no academic lessons. Both options provide students with plenty of opportunities to improve their skills. Beginners can start with parallel turns, while intermediate and advanced skiers will go higher up the mountain and get the chance to tackle 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

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.


We offer a full continental breakfast every day, a hot lunch, hot chocolate back at camp once activities are over, and a hot meal every evening with a healthy three-course meal.

La Garenne provides the right combination of activities and language learning to offer children a fun and rewarding experience. We provide an international environment with experienced and caring staff, and the children who attend our winter camp enjoy wonderful experiences and take away many amazing memories of their time with us.
