Montana International Summer Camp is a private summer camp for mixed education for children from 8 to 17 years old. Students are accepted for the programs of all nationalities, cultures and religions. The camp, located in the Swiss Alps, seeks to give students everything possible for a full and comprehensive development of personality, academic and sporting achievements, for intellectual and creative growth.

The Swiss resort Crans Montana, located at an altitude of 1500 meters above sea level, is often called the "heart of the Alps". This is the most sunny place in all of Europe (the plateau on which the locality is stood, faces south): the windows of the buildings offer a stunning panoramic view of the mountains. The structure of the area includes two villages - respectively, Crane and Montana. The distance to Geneva is about 180 kilometers, and to Zurich - 220 kilometers. In the towns themselves there is a modern center (squash, swimming pool, tennis, golf, bowling), horse riding grounds, spa and wellness centers. Also, Crans-Montana is known for its excellent golf courses: national championships have been held here for more than a hundred years in a row, and since 1983 local grounds have been used for all-European competitions.

The camp pays close attention to inculcating a healthy lifestyle for children: there are plenty of outdoor activities, sports lessons, education of environmental literacy and a sense of responsibility for the preservation of the environment. Here there is a friendly, relaxed atmosphere, thanks to which the pupils feel at home from the first days of their stay, quickly make new friends, get acquainted with the culture and customs of other countries. Students quickly become more educated, organized, tolerant, independent, learn to defend their opinions and respect someone else's point of view, join democratic ideals and strive to become responsible citizens and full personalities.

All participants of summer courses are divided into age groups:

  • Juniors (8-9 years)
  • Pioneers (10-11 years)
  • Champions (12-13 years)
  • Seniors (14-17 years).

All classes are held in small groups of up to 8 people in each, and the personal interests and child's inclinations are taken into account in distributing academic groups: for example, if the student is fond of football, then classes will be held in a group of fans of this sport, corresponding to his level of knowledge and age. All programs take into account the age of students and are developed in strict accordance with this basic and important parameter.

The international student can choose a summer language program of Spanish, French or Italian - the basis is the well-known general course "Language as a foreign language", per hour per day. Each teacher is a native speaker of the language, having sufficient experience and qualifications to work with foreign students and international groups. You can learn at three levels: beginner, intermediate or advanced, depending on the basic studying. In the classroom, interactive, computer and audio-visual equipment is actively used. In addition, it is envisaged to get acquainted with the culture, art, geography and history of this or that country.

As practice shows, boys and girls often choose different studying programs. For a more intensive communication, development of the ability to work in a team, to improve communication skills, a large number of joint activities are organized: games, competitions, entertainment, hikes, walks and excursions.

The main language in the camp is English, but the staff also speaks Spanish, Italian, German and French: it facilitates the adaptation of foreign students and the assimilation of educational material, makes them more involved in public life.
