We were fortunate to be able to run French Summer camps in 2020 despite Covid complicating international travel. Life in Morzine, like elsewhere in the world, has changed in the last 6 months. However because the majority of Morzine’s activities take place outdoors, we are very lucky that life has carried on with not too many changes or restrictions. Local businesses have put social distancing measures into place and mask wearing is mandatory throughout the centre of the town and in all commerces. On the chairlifts and in the cable-cars, passengers have to sit more spaced out than normal and wear a mask. At the swimming pool, you have to book online through a simple form, shower on your way in and wear a mask apart from when you are at the poolside. All of these measures meant that Morzine and its tourists had a happy and sunny Summer :)
We ran our Summer Camps with a covid protocol in place including social distancing, masks for over-11s and all staff, increased cleaning and disinfecting of our premises and accommodation, removal of shared material, picnic lunches instead of a canteen, temperature checking of anyone feeling unwell or displaying possible symptoms and much more. Our clients were happy and felt safe with the measures we had put in place without feeling that the measures were too restrictive to spoil their enjoyment of our camps, courses and the beautiful mountains!
Based on our experience, we have been busy planning our French Summer Camps for 2021. We will be running:
- Residential French Summer Camps
- French Day Camp
- French Family Camp
- GCSE & A-level revision courses
- Courses for expats
