Language holidays for the whole family in the beautiful Glanerland

 

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

Parents can now spend their vacation with their children and participate in the camp program with them! However, if you prefer to organise your own programme, this is also possible.

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

You can decide which activities you would like to participate in. 




Accommodation during the family language stay

You are accommodated in the same hostel as your children. It is possible to choose between a family room (4 and 6 bedrooms) for the whole family or a double or single room for more privacy.

This means that your children can sleep with you or with their colleagues.

 


Food
 

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!

All 3 meals per day are also included for all family.

 

Activities

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 you can also participate. 

Another option is to go out on your own to discover beautiful places in the area. We will be happy to help you and give you good tips. ;)

Excursions on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons and all day Saturdays take us to explore Switzerland, its towns and villages, its culture and nature. We go hiking in the mountains with amazing views or spend a whole afternoon doing activities by the lake.

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

Every evening, between dinner and bedtime, we organize activities for the children and teenagers such as: games, challenges, quizzes, karaoke etc.

You are very welcome, if you are not yet very tired... :)

 


Airport transfer

Besides that, we will pick up families from abroad at Zurich airport and bring them back at the end of their stay.

 


We recommend you to be part of these highlights!
