In this camp, we offer accommodation in our beautiful and spacious chalet. Located midway up the mountains, it overlooks the village, lake and opposite mountain range. The lake is located two minutes walk away, two and half when one have to walk up the stairs !

As well as having plenty of places to sleep, our chalet comes complete with leisure rooms that include a disco space, a ping-pong room and two balconies that both offer a panoramic view. Moving outside, the chalet's grounds include a large garden space as well as a campfire spot - which is always equipped with plenty of chopped wood.

Two dormitories of 10 beds and several 2 to 4 beds rooms.

Classes take place in the building, or sometimes in the nearby Bald Hostel

Breakfast is served in the building - for lunch and dinner, the participants go to another one, 5 minutes' walk from the chalet.

Every year, 20 to 40 teenagers (German or French - speakers) join us in this camp every week…
