Ecole Chantemerle


Learn French and have fun this Summer in Switzerland.

A perfect Educational Holiday for boys and girls ages 6 to 16. This Summer, parents can enjoy Europe while their children are learning French, experiencing life in a Swiss boarding school and discover Switzerland.

Chantemerle School founded in 1966 is celebrating it’s 50th year of great Summer Camp experience. The school is set in beautiful natural surroundings overlooking Lake Geneva and the majestic Swiss alps. With stunning views and a chalet style school atmosphere, children from all over the world come together to learn a language and discover Switzerland. The program offers 4 hours of intensive language classes every morning, and/or Science and Robotics classes. Afternooons are reserved for activities and excursions such as visits to castles, mountain walks , the chocolate factory, the Olympic Museum in Lausanne, the United Nations Headquarters in Geneva, the Music box museum, boat tours on the Lake, The Montreux Jazz festival, historic walking tour in Vevey and Lausanne, Aquasplash, the Salt Mines and the Grotto of Vallorbe to name a few. The all time favorite is the 2 day overnight trip to Europapark in the Black forest in Germany. To better learn the language, treasure hunts are organised throughout the local village where children go from the local Cheese shop, to the Butcher Shop to the local hairdresser and grocery strore with clues and messages- the exercise is for them to be placed in real life situations speeding up the process of language learning in a fun way.
Activities are also organised on campus such as circus and talent workshops where all children participate in a theatre style show presented every 2 weeks. Other workshops such as baking, chocolate and jam making, outdoor arts and crafts, archery, ballroom dancing are organised by dedicated staff. Disco parties, outdoor fun and games, soccer, basketball and just building freindships is how Chantemerle children experience Summer. The most unique aspect of the school is the family atmosphere and dedicated and professional team of educators. Most campers hear about the school through word of mouth or through their parents who themselves went to school there too. The founders, Mrs and Mr Wegmüller had a vision to create a school where children are happy in a beautiful setting offering a healthy angle to eduaction in a warm and inspiring atmosphere. The camp is limited to 60 children and enrollement is open for Summer Camp ( 2 to 6-week stays from June 26 to August 7, 2016).
