Extracurricular Activities and Trips

Collège Champittet encourages students to participate in after-school activities, international trips and local excursions as a way to develop interests and build new skills while growing their social network.

Extracurricular Activities for the Body and Mind

 

We believe that extracurricular activities offer students an important physical, social and mental outlet. By balancing their studies with participation in sports teams, science clubs, the performing arts and other activities, students learn professional skills like time management and gain confidence.

As part of the Nord Anglia Education family, our students can participate in extracurricular activities offered in collaboration with world-renowned institutions. These include a world-class performing arts programme co-developed with the Juilliard School in New York, hands-on challenges in science, technology, engineering, arts and maths (STEAM) designed with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and opportunities to address global issues with UNICEF.

Local and International Trips

 

In addition to our programme of after-school activities, Collège Champittet also offers many local excursions and international trips throughout the year. Our trips may have an academic, cultural or athletic focus, and they provide a safe, enriching opportunity for students to explore and expand their worldview. 

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.

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)
