New Etiquette Classes Summer 2016

03-Banner-1

Dear Campers, Parents and Friends,

At Les Elfes we have high expectations for our students and we endeavor to enable them to achieve the most from their time with us.

An important part of the experience we offer is the ‘family’ atmosphere that we have on our camp.

We offer different programmes for each age group however on our campus the way the groups are combined during meals and some activities means that all of our students, regardless of their age group, are part of a bigger supportive team who look after one-another and share their stories together at the end of the day.

Unsurprisingly therefore for many students this is a new environment, and simply being way from home and part of a larger group is a new concept, and for many being out of their own culture and country is also a new chapter.

As a result of this we are proud to have conceptualized Etiquette classes at Les Elfes. Understanding how to feel self assured, and confident in a range of environments especially away from parents in a new part of the world is something we feel many of our students can benefit from.

In collaboration with Chalet D’Adrien, a Relais Chateaux luxury 5 Star Hotel in Verbier with a simply stunning gourmet restaurant. Students will spend time learning and putting into practice a range of topics, such as sitting correctly, manners at the table, etc. Manners cost nothing as the saying goes, and more than ever children are tested, graded, assessed from early ages.


ETIQUETTE CLASSES SUMMER 2016


Our Etiquette course is run once per session:

These dynamic and interactive workshops will enable our students to develop a toolbox of teamwork skills which will help them to build mature lasting relationships with friends and colleagues, create imaginative and complex solutions to problems and focus on their Emotional Intelligence using theories and practices from a range of academic scholars in the field of experiential learning.

Course will be around 6 hours long and divided into two sections:

In collaboration with Chalet D’Adrien, a Relais Chateaux luxury 5 Star Hotel in Verbier with a simply stunning gourmet restaurant.

Students will spend time learning and putting into practice a range of topics, such as sitting correctly, manners at the table, table setting, silverware settings, dining dos and don’ts, interacting with servers and many more. Although many of us take these topics for granted, for many it can be quite daunting, with our help and guidance, we believe students will approach these situations with a new found confidence and enthusiasm.

They will learn proper table manners, manners at home, manners when out and about, honesty, integrity include role playing and exercises, multimedia materials, and comprehensive lesson plans so students learn the value of proper behavior, self-respect, and self-confidence all while having fun

MANNERS, RESPECT, FUN

Manners cost nothing as the saying goes, and more than ever children are tested, graded, assessed from early ages. Manners and decorum are increasingly important.

With our fun interactive class, student will carry out role playing scenarios where they can present their best side and make the most of the opportunities that come their way.

Being prepared for success in the global economy of the 21st century, in a variety of situations is crucial, with this fun, interactive course, students can develop important skills, manners, become more accommodating of others and become impressionable for all the right reasons.

New Personal Development Programs

Feb-Ind-Banner

As Leo Tolstoy said, ‘Spring is the time of plans and projects’ and for us here it is no exception, at Les Elfes we have been busy developing and fine tuning our Spring and Summer programs and new to this year are our Personal Development Programs.
These dynamic and interactive workshops will enable our students to develop a toolbox of teamwork skills which will help them to build mature lasting relationships with friends and colleagues, create imaginative and complex solutions to problems and focus on their Emotional Intelligence using theories and practices from a range of academic scholars in the field of experiential learning.

The Four main PDPs will be:

Feb-Ind-Summer-2

Web Identity

Perfecting your online identity is an ever increasing topic and very much of the now.

Personal branding and social media awareness is tantamount to how people not only see you but potentially see what you do each day.

We teach pragmatic approaches on this topic, and cover many different aspects of data management, from uploading images appropriately to dialogue with other online users in different scenarios.


Feb-Ind-Summer-3

Etiquette

Within our Etiquette classes students will become familiar with understanding decorum in formal and less formal scenarios and how to present one self in a range of environments.

Perfect for students who are stepping into a new arena such as university overseas.

With our fun approach our classes will best prepare students on how to conduct themselves in a confident and comfortable manner, or how to best tackle an interview or even to host a dinner party!


Feb-Ind-Summer-4

Careers Programme

Our careers programme combines a practical development training model with components designed to equip students for the world of work.

We have inspirational guest speakers to enlighten students about the range of different opportunities and paths for reaching their goals and a first aid course, run by a professional trainer, in which students can take away a valid first aid certificate as part of the professional development portfolio for universities or colleges.


Feb-Ind-Summer-5

Leadership Programme

Our leadership programme comprises interactive development training sessions and an introduction to a range of academic models covering group dynamics and leadership techniques.

Our students have the opportunity to apply their new skills in outdoor activities and to set personal goals throughout the training to develop their personal leadership style. Through our programme students are empowered to use their knowledge of the theories underpinning affective leadership and the confidence to grow as a young adult to become a successful leader for others.


Feb-Ind-Summer-6

Arts

For our youngest students we offer a diverse range of activities designed to give students the opportunity to express themselves and to explore their creative talent.

Our programme combines art classes with a local art school, cooking and food preparation workshops, theatre and improvisation sessions and a chance for public speaking and group presentations to build confidence and team working skills.

Где провести каникулы с пользой?

С юга – Италия, с севера – Германия, на западе – Франция, на востоке – Австрия и крохотный Pic-Summer-Campus-bigЛихтенштейн – неудивительно, что в Швейцарии говорят аж на четырех языках. Часы и сыр, банковские услуги и ножи, горнолыжный туризм и шоколад, образование и одежда – сколько всего разного и качественного подарила миру небольшая Швейцария. В этой миролюбивой и безопасной стране с высоким уровнем жизни вашему ребенку будет что посмотреть и перенять.

Мы знаем в Швейцарских Альпах особенное местечко: называется Вербье. Чтобы дети непринужденно учили иностранные языки, социализировались, интересно и активно отдыхали – словом, наиболее разнообразно проводили свое время, с 1987 года здесь работает международный детский лагерь Les Elfes.
