DSCN0199International Community

Meet friends from all corners of the world. Trough out each year, there is a mix of over 50 different nationalities present at Les Elfes.

We are pleased to have heard from many campers that they have found lifelong friendships and have built international networks for their future.

At Les Elfes we have students from all over the world. Within this international community we feel it is beneficial to recognize the traditions of each other. It not only gives students the opportunity to celebrate their nation or beliefs, but allows them to bring a little piece of home into the camp. Also students from other parts of the world will learn and hopefully appreciate the cultures of others, to recognize that New Year is celebrated at a different date in china for example, or that Christmas is not always on the 25th of December for some. In this modern diverse age, the fabrics of society are made up of many different cultures, and here at Les Elfes we constantly strive to recognize them all, and if it means cooking some traditional dishes, or decorating the chalets accordingly, then we are more than happy to encourage students to do so and will help them along the way.
