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.
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.
Students will learn the value of proper behavior, the power of please and thank you, public manners, talking to adults, eye contact, standing tall and making small talk. 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.
We have just a few days left of our winter season here and whether you are travelling to visit us for skiing in Spring or adventurous activities this summer camp we look forward to a great trip together.
For those who have visited us already this winter, thank you for a fantastic season.
