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 Liddes, you'll be in seventh heaven or maybe even on cloud nine, for our Math camp is a perfect ten!


In our chalet in the Swiss Valais, 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 German speakers aged from 10 to 15.

In small groups of 6 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
900 CHF for 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 in English or French classes in the afternoon (2 or 3 times a week).

Our spacious chalet "Relais de Dranse", renovated in 2014, is situated in Liddes, in a wonderfully quiet location on the Dranse, a headstream of the river Rhone, about 5 minutes below the pass road to the Aosta Valley in Italy. Sprawling countryside and no passing traffic make it absolutely perfect for a relaxed language stay in the Valaisian Alps!

The house offers three storeys, a big common room area, a fireplace and lots of green surroundings, perfect to play volleyball or soccer or to relax in the mountain sun.
A few minutes drive away you may find a swimming pool or the skiing area of Vichères Liddes.
