Winter Camp program all the information on the activities of the winter camp program
During the morning, we offer French and English courses.
All our teachers are qualified and experienced with young campers and are all native speakers. They are very motivated and prepare new lessons based on a different theme each year. Their enthusiasm makes the lessons fun and the campers learn without realizing!
We want our classes to be alive and different from language classes at school. Language groups are limited in number (maximum 8 per class) and are organized by language level so the children are not afraid to participate and improve. The focus is on conversation and building trust.
An oral evaluation helps to determine the most appropriate class for each child and classes are available for beginner, intermediate or advanced levels.
As a year-round language school, this is our specialty. Our winter camp program includes 10 hours of language lessons per week.
2 Sports Activities in the winter camp Program
Ski or Snowboard lessons
6 half days from Sunday to Friday
For fans of powder, winter sports and thrills!
Ski lessons are provided by an ESF (l’Ecole de Ski Français) instructor and campers are tested at the end of the week. The French Alps are known throughout the world for exceptional ski resorts, great snow conditions and unequalled ski runs. During the winter camp program, children will discover, learn and / or improve their abilities in winter sports.
The ski area Evasion Mont Blanc is simply magnificent. It groups together the resorts of Megève, Saint Gervais, Saint Nicolas, Combloux and les Contamines. It is appreciated for its diversity of slopes and landscapes, as well as the altitudes ranging from 1113 to 2350m. In the shadow of the highest summit in Europe, there are no less than 450 kms of slopes, adapted to all tastes and styles and equipped with 117 ski lifts.

Prices of the Winter camp Program
During our winter camp program, we offer a private tailored service with Day Camper formula only (without accommodations).
The camp starts every morning at 9.30 AM and finishes at 6 PM.
It is a day camp for children on vacation in Megève with their parents.
To maintain an organization at a comfortable level, we deliberately limit capacity to 20 children. This allows us to create a multicultural dynamic and to look after the well-being of each of our participants.
Children have their meals in a restaurant on the ski slopes at lunchtime.

Security is an essential part of our winter camp program: the children are supervised at all times.
Megève provides a peaceful place and a safe environment.
All the service providers are qualified in their relevant activities (mountain guide, ski instructor etc).
Our team members are selected for their experience with children, for their age and their training. They are all bilingual.
The staff/child ratio is 1 adult per 5 children maximum.
Our team is experienced, qualified, and competent and entirely dedicated to the personal development of the children.
