Thank you for the December winter camp sessions!

 

Dear Parents,

 

Our first newsletter of the year, therefore we say happy new year, and may 2021 bring you happiness and good health. We write to you now with great news, 5 weeks of Winter camp has passed with great success. Christmas and New Year seems a distant memory now, but with the campers, it was as special as always. 

With very few overseas clients being able to travel, our campers were mainly residents of Switzerland and neighboring countries permitted to travel here. Inevitably with this lower number of students campus felt a little different, but we can proudly say it has been positive, with many campers re-booking for our February and Easter camps.

We have been able to integrate ourselves much more with the kids and connect with them, in turn, they have been able to bond with their fellow campers perhaps more so than usual. The pace of camp life has mellowed a little and there is certainly less of a rush, indeed we have learned many things these past few weeks, and will adapt our programs in the future to ensure this atmosphere is retained.

The focus has always been safety and fun. As explained in previous newsletters and published on our website, there have been changes to how we operate, measures that have been in place now since last year, and we have managed to stay covid free, a good sign that the measures are working, and we can operate safely.

During these times of restriction, our campers have been able to revel in the freedom of camp life. They have been able to ski and snowboard, play in the fresh air and the great outdoors, so important for young minds. Off snow activities such as ice skating, team building, rock climbing, and some local excursions, have all added to the broad spectrum of options. Some of these children have been homeschooling for a while, with no sports permitted, therefore being able to enjoy these weeks of adventure and fun has been fantastic. For us staff, it has been even more special to be a part of this process. 


WINTER CAMP

 

Lily’s Review

 

“… I came and I met lots of amazing people, including the staff and I also got reunited with one of my greatest friends from three years ago. It wasn’t just a social experience, I also went skiing for a whole month, and it was the most incredible experience of my life. I learned carving for the first time and I also learned ski ballet, which adds so much on top of the amazing experience I had over here. I love and will forever cherish this experience, and I would definitely recommend it.”

 

Winter camp opening dates

 

Looking ahead, Les Elfes is opening on the 6th-27th February, and beyond for the Easter break 13th March 17th April.

WHY LES ELFES WINTER CAMP YOU MAY ASK?

 

With over 30 years of experience in Verbier, a world-class ski resort, why not! The routine of camp life, living in a new community and taking part in fun healthy outdoor activities are fundamental aspects of child development, now so more than ever with restrictions on the sport at school.

10% DISCOUNT ON YOUR SUMMER CAMP BOOKING

Dear Parents and Partners,

 

We know you are already receiving a large number of newsletters about the current worldwide situation but we believe the following information could be useful for you.

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has influenced the entire Globe and created heavy consequences all around the World. 

For instance, Les Elfes camp is currently closed and our staff is safely working from home to guarantee the preparation of the summer camp 2020.

Considering that we don’t know when the authorities will give us the green light to open the campus again, we decided to offer free cancellation until the end of April to all the reservations received from the 9th of March 2020 onwards. At the end of April, we will reconsider if postponing the deadline for the free cancellation is necessary.

Moreover, a 10% discount is offered on the summer camp 2020 reservations received since the 26th of March. Don’t lose this opportunity!

Our head office is continuously receiving requests and bookings for the summer camp and for this reason, we look forward to receiving your registration before the summer camp 2020 in Verbier is fully booked.

 

Stay Positive!

 

We all know how complicated it is to stay at home without having the opportunity to visit friends and family but in this difficult moment STAY AT HOME is the best decision we can take.
Then, why not re-discover those passions and hobbies that we put aside? Maybe some of you want to learn a new language, or paint, write a poetry or just read a new book. Maybe some of you are willing to discover some practices such as meditation or yoga. So, now is the time to take a break and dedicate minutes, hours to yourselves. 
And for the ones of you who are sharing their days with their kids, why not teach them how to bake a cake, sew, fix a motorbike or other of those activities most of us have lost with the frenetic everyday life and that schools don’t propose.
