>> ARRIVALS AND DEPARTURES / FROM THE AIRPORT TO THE CAMP AND BACK <<
 

Emergency number: (+41) 077 428 72 33 (delay, emergency)


Participants arriving by plane from another country can be awaited for in a Swiss Airport by a member of our team and safely taken to the Swiss Camp they have chosen.

At the end of their stay, they are accompanied to the airport by a member of our team who will make sure that the plane is on time, that the staff of the airplane company is taking care of children who have reserved a service for minors travelling alone, etc.

This service has a cost (you can find details in the "Extra" section for each camp's description).

Please don't hesitate to communicate us the details of the flight (as soon as possible) so that we can organize the pick-up at the airport or make sure that the young participants have all the information they need if they are coming by themselves. Our office and our camp-leaders will make sure that children and teenagers have a nice time, in security and without any stress, during their whole stay in Switzerland - from the moment they land at the airport until the take-off at the end of their stay.

Please don't hesitate to contact our office in you need any assistance as for your legal status as a foreigner coming to Switzerland (visa & declarations), as well as about health or civil insurance…
