A holiday camp to improve your mathematics skills in a good mood!


You feel like at sixes and sevens over what to do to solve an equation? After a week or two at Braunwald, you'll be in seventh heaven or maybe even on cloud nine, for our Math camp is a perfect ten!


In our Adrenalin Backpackers Hotel, we’ll help you to get over all your difficulties with numbers and to get prepared for your exams, all this while making sure you’re having fun during your whole stay…

 

For all teenagers from 10 to 15 years old.

 

In small groups of 8 pupils in average, you’ll review the lessons you’ve learned at school, but not like in school: our young teachers will do their best so that you feel at ease, you gain confidence and discover how fascinating and amusing mathematics can be!


Every morning*, three hours of mathematics lessons in our chalet or in a nearby building – and in the afternoon, you’ll take part to activities and excursions to have a wonderful vacation.

 

And excellent price-quality ratio
15 hours** of mathematics tutoring, in full pension. The young participants will sleep in our comfortable dormitories and enjoy the delicious meals prepared by our chef.


Participants can also take part to English, German or French classes in the afternoon (2 or 3 times a week).

 

Important: Depending on the number/type of registrations, the lessons will be held in German or English. If you don't understand German and would like to have the course in English, please contact us via email or phone!
