Intensive French classes during the French Teen summer camp in Switzerland

Looking for something different? Learn French in the heart of the Swiss Alps! You land in Geneva and join your new international friends and the camp staff in the Canton of Valais, where you are welcomed in a typical Chalet of the Swiss mountains. The village is at an altitude of 1,050 meters and is located in the Val d'Illiez, at the foot of the Dents du Midi mountains. Champéry is a small family ski resort in Switzerland. While the Portes du Soleil ski resort is known worldwide for winter sports, the resort and the village also offer many mountain and sports activities during the summer. The Chalet offers 11 well-equipped rooms dedicated to the French classes. 

You benefit from safe and exceptional living and study facilities for your French summer camp in Switzerland. 

You attend 28 45-minute French lessons in small groups (21 hours) per week, on weekday mornings from 9 to 12.30 pm, and 1 hour in the late afternoon.
