Les Elfes Inernational
Les Elfes International, established in 1987, is a family-run business with over 30 years’ experience in providing safe, challenging and educational experiences for kids and teens from 6 to 17 years old. Our camps are nestled in the Swiss Alps and the variety of mountains, forests, lakes and open spaces offer a playground for outdoor adventures. The camp operates year-round, and it is packed with activities from skiing and snowboarding to hiking, rock climbing, mountain biking, leadership training and language studies.
At Les Elfes we welcome over 65 nationalities and 5000 children per year from December to the end of October.
Our winter and summer camps offer much more than just activities and experiences. We introduce skills that last a lifetime, such as communicating with others without a phone or laptop, understanding the values of living in a community away from the familiar environment of home or school. Of course, learning a new activity, such as mountain biking or climbing, skiing and snowboarding, has considerable advantages. Away from the snow or away from the main activities, there are gains to be made from our tailored leadership and development programmes and language courses but having a break from the school cycle and putting fun, creativity and excitement into everyday life is where our camps come in.
