Camps & Trips

Collège Champittet offers an enriching programme of overnight camps, international trips and local excursions. Our camps and trips are a wonderful opportunity for students to broaden their horizons while strengthening a sense of community with fellow participants and teachers.

The Summer Leadership Camp in Switzerland is open to external as well as enrolled students. Throughout the year, Champittet students can participate in the Annual Ski Camp and join organised trips abroad to destinations in Europe, Asia and Africa.

Champittet Summer Leadership Camp (Boarding and Day Camp) – Ages 11 to 18

 

The Champittet Summer Leadership Camp invites students to develop confidence, teamwork and leadership skills in the spectacular setting of Lake Geneva and the Alps. Organised together with the renowned Swiss Leadership Academy and taught in English, our exciting summer camp in Switzerland offers students the chance to learn more about themselves through unforgettable activities.

The Champittet Summer Leadership Camp is held over two weeks and open to students from all over the world. Students may choose full boarding at our historic campus near Lake Geneva or attend as day camp participants. For students who are interested in boarding at our Swiss private school in the future, this camp is an excellent opportunity to experience Collège Champittet and Switzerland.

Campers are guided through fun challenges and outdoor adventures at our campus in Lausanne and the surrounding environment. Along the way, students have opportunities to develop skills in communication, goal setting, time and stress management, savoir vivre and first aid. Teamwork and leadership are key to this course. Participants are coached by professionals and receive feedback at the end of each activity to help them get the most out of the experience.

Annual Ski Camp

 

Each year Collège Champittet organises a winter ski camp for students in grades 7 to 11. Students spend the week learning to ski or improving their skiing ability while also participating in other snow sports, playing games or learning how to cook. The trip always provides an excellent opportunity for building team spirit and camaraderie among our staff and students.

International Trips Abroad

 

Our older day and boarding students (ages 15 and up) can participate in international excursions and travel abroad to destinations in Europe, Asia and Africa. These trips have an educational focus, with an emphasis on the culture, languages and tradition of each destination. Some past examples include a spiritual retreat to Rome, a cultural class trip to London, discovery trips to Greece and Japan, and humanitarian trips during the holidays to Tanzania, Thailand, Cambodia and Madagascar.

Thanks to our school’s location in Switzerland near the borders of Italy and France, we are also able to arrange shorter outings and weekend trips for boarding students throughout the year. Some of our local and overseas trips are included for boarding school students; for more information, please download our brochures on boarding house trips in Switzerland and abroad.

Local Field Trips

 

Our students of all ages have opportunities to go on a wide variety of day trips. These school excursions enable them to have a fuller and more exciting educational experience while enhancing the classroom curriculum. Our field trips are specifically designed to enrich students’ understanding of:

  • Culture (classical concerts, theatre performances)

  • History and heritage (museums)

  • Geography and the environment (nature excursions, hands-on learning)

  • Health and wellness (physical activity, sports)
