Les Elfes Summer camp reviews

Polina V.

A wonderful summer camp for any child and teenager - they have already traveled twice (daughters 10 and 14 years old).

A very well-developed program: parents can receive a daily schedule by e-mail and discuss with the administration what the children will do. Education is completely stress-free: it seems that after lunch the children have already forgotten that in the morning they were sitting in class - however, there is progress in English due to immersion and language environment.

The camp is located in an incredibly beautiful place, a real mountain fairy tale: this is how you imagine Switzerland in advertising brochures, so it is here!

It is good that there are a lot of foreign guys. You can get to know the whole world like this. Very good conditions for living - almost a five-star hotel (and the European "five"), a variety of food in the canteens, barbecues, picnics, trips to urban restaurants.
