  • Description


    Hoi, Salut, Ciao, Allegra & Hello :) We organise a buzzing language camp for kids aged 10 to 16 in St.Cergue, Switzerland - and we’re every bit as as colourful, dynamic and lively as the languages we help our students to learn! Learning languages ​​can be, and should be, fun!

    The receipt for our holiday camp is simple: Energetic language courses in the morning but nothing compared to school, plenty of sports and creativity added in the afternoons and evenings, garnished with a contagious international and open-minded vibe of a young multi-lingual and professional team of fellow world explorers!

    For our sessions in summer and autumn we are looking for: Cool, funny, easy going, creative, sporty, constructive, forward thinking, motivated, driven and energetic minds! being experienced in working with kids is a must, understanding how a team of different backgrounds and capacities works, too. if this is you - this will not just be a job, it will be an unforgettable, adventurous and action-packed time together :)

    This host offers a language exchange
    Within our team we always have French, English and (Swiss) German mother tongue speakers around since we teach those 3 languages to the kids. Usually Spanish and/or Portuguese/ Italian too. English is our main language of communication. Personally my mother tongue is German but having lived in Argentina, Ireland, Brasil and the French speaking part of Switzerland I speak all those beautiful languages too and I am very keen to share and add to my and your knowledge.

  • Accommodation


    Our camp takes place in St.Cergue in the French speaking part of Switzerland close to Geneva. We offer mixed dormitories with 4 to 8 single beds per room. If you prefer a single room, throw a mattress in the washing room or bring your own camper van or tent. Accommodation is rather basic than 5 star but if you ever stayed in a mixed dormitory of a budget hostel in Panama or Morocco you will love it, no worries :) We have our own kitchen team. All meals and excursions are included.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Every week we take all kids on 3 different excursions which is a great opportunity to join and explore what Lake Geneva region and Western Switzerland has to offer: Lake Geneva, the cities of Nyon, Lausanne & Geneva, different hikes around the region with beautiful view points, local milk, cheese or chocolate producers, different museums etc... On your days off you are completely free to organise yourself. We cannot offer you a car but getting around by train and bus is amazingly convenient (but can be quite costy booking last-minute). because of its many remote areas, hitchhiking is still fairly common in Switzerland!
