Welcome back to school! I do hope your summer has been as brilliant as ours.
Back to work now and September is upon us soon and as you begin your academic years, we go into arguably the best months in Switzerland. September is a wonderful time of year, and we welcome many of our international schools for field trips.
These trips are finely tuned to reflect the criteria of the school, covering many subject areas, from physical education, science, environmental studies and loads of fun, whichever the goals, Les Elfes can tailor the programs to each school requirements. Methods and strategies that have been tried and tested, combined with our residential camps in Verbier, La Tzoumaz or Crans-Montana can produce fantastic outcomes for students of all ages.
We are also seeing an increase in Duke of Edinburgh trips this year, with more of our staff taking the assessor courses this autumn, we are able to facilitate Gold, Silver or Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Adventurous sections of the award.
Looking a little further and winter will be arriving soon and our famous Ski Camps begin.
From the beginning of December until the end of April we welcome schools from all corners of the globe. Winter at Les Elfes is a fantastic experience, full-day skiing and snowboarding lessons with our instructors, followed by structured après ski and evening activities.
Schools also have the choice of cultural excursions, and destinations unique to Switzerland, such as the United Nations or CERN, are proving increasingly popular. There is a huge amount on offer, and so many components for a successful week. With limited availability, please get in touch for more info.
