Language study vacation for the whole family in the Swiss Glaris


In Braunwald, in the Glarus region, is the newest friLingual camp! Every season we welcome children and teenagers of different mother tongues and help them to progress in English, French, German and also in Mathematics! 

Parents can now spend their vacation with their children and participate in the camp program with them. However, if parents prefer their own program, that is also possible.

During their stay, parents can discover the beauty of nature, expand their language skills and meet new and exciting people!

Parents can decide which activities they would like to participate in. 

Accommodation during your family language stay

Parents are accommodated in the same hostel as their children. It is possible to choose between a large room for the whole family or a double or single room for more privacy.

This means that the children can sleep with their parents or with their colleagues.


Our friLingue camp kitchen is known throughout the language travel world for its quality. The majority of children think that our food is very good. That is quite something!

You can also decide for yourself when eating:

Half board, full board? Do only the kids eat in the camp?


During two afternoons of the week we organize workshops such as theater, sports, photography, cooking, different fields of art, yoga etc. 

The workshops are designed for children and teenagers, but parents can still participate. 

Another option for parents is to go out on their own to discover beautiful places in the area. 

Excursions on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons and all day Saturdays take us to explore Switzerland, its towns and villages, its culture and nature. We hike in the mountains with amazing views or spend a whole afternoon in a tree park. 

Excursions are always a time of fun and sharing and we recommend that parents be part of these adventures! However, they are optional for them.

Also every evening, between dinner and bedtime, we organize activities for the children and teenagers such as: games, challenges, quizzes, karaoke etc. Parents are very welcome, if they are not yet very tired... :)

Airport transfer

Besides that, we will pick up the family at the Zurich airport and bring it back at the end of its stay.

We recommend you to be part of these highlights!

Col du St. Bernard - the famous historical pass that Napoleon and Hannibal have crossed in their respective eras. A must if you are in the region of the Great St. Bernhard! And not to forget: the famous St. Bernard dogs!
