  • We offer a meet and greet service for arrival and departure at Geneva airport.  An Alpine French School representative will be at Geneva airport to meet students at any time on a Sunday and to help with their arrival & departure.  This service can only be provided on a Sunday but at any time including early and late arrivals and departures.  The cost of this service including the airport transfers to and from Morzine is 90€ per person.  At all other times, we can arrange transport for students but a representative from our partner transfer company will welcome students at the airport so they must be autonomous to travel without an adult.  Unaccompanied Minor Services can only be accommodated on a Sunday when our representative is at the airport.

Summer Camp Lessons

Your French/English lessons on our Alpine French Summer Camp will be fun yet educational, including games, songs and plenty of interactive group exercises.  Classes are taught by young, dynamic teachers who know how to keep summer camp learning entertaining and lively!

Lessons take place 9h-12h30 Monday to Friday with a 30-minute break.  Students will be fully involved in the lessons, playing games, creating projects, learning vocab and phrases that they can later use in real-life situations. Groups are often taken out into Morzine to put what they have learnt into practice, for example, they might learn some vocab and questions and then go to the market to buy a few items and test their French on the stall-holders.

We cater for all ages from 11-17 years old during the summer camp and students are split into groups with others of a similar age.  We also cater for all levels from complete beginner to advanced or almost bilingual.  Students are also divided into groups according to their language level.

As part of our French summer camp, we also offer the option of GCSE/AS-level/A-level preparation courses.  These are a very popular option and run at the same time as the other courses for 15 hours per week.  Classes are taught by a teacher experienced in the exam requirements so students can improve their general level, learn exam tips and techniques to help them in the exam situations.  We also offer additional private tuition if required to work on specific weakness or skills.

The aim of all of our French Summer Camp lessons is to complement and improve on what children learn at school.  The main focus is on getting junior students communicating in French, having a go, gaining confidence in speaking and understanding why it is important to learn a language.  We also try and motivate students and make them see that learning a language is not only useful but fun too, which sometimes they don’t realise when learning in a classroom back home!

French Summer Camp Activities

Lively sporting, cultural and social activities are an essential part of a language study trip and our region offers a fantastic choice, so you will never be bored!  Afternoon and weekend activities are run by our qualified activity coordinators. All residential students get to participate in Adventure activities during their stay with us. Please see our sample summer camp programme below for more details.

Option +

*Previously Adventure activities were an optional extra but they are now included in the package price.

Option+ Private French/English Classes (3 x 45-minute lessons per week).

French Alpine Summer Camp Accommodation and Meals

Students will stay in a study residence designed for study travel trips for juniors and teenage groups.  The centre is managed by an experienced local family who have been welcoming school groups to the area for more than 15 years.  Students are housed in modern en-suite rooms sleeping 4-6 people.  Our activity coordinators stay on-site in the student residence to provide supervision, to ensure a convivial atmosphere, to lend a sympathetic ear if needed.  Meals are provided on a full-board basis, with picnic lunch included if lunch is to be taken outside of the centre.  Internet access is available in the centre allowing easy contact with home.

Pastoral Care: French Summer Camp Student Welfare

All students arriving and departing on a Sunday will be met and helped at Geneva airport by a representative from Alpine French School.  At all other times, we can arrange transport for students but a representative from our partner transfer company will welcome students at the airport.  In this case, students must be autonomous to travel alone.  Unaccompanied minor services can only be booked for Sunday arrivals and departures.

All members of staff on our French Alpine Summer Camp have the necessary authorizations and experience to work with juniors.

Accommodation and activities included in this programme are all accredited by the French government (Ministère de Jeunesse et Sports) to welcome junior groups.

Students are supervised during all tuition, breaks and activities and our activity coordinators stay on-site with the juniors.

Morzine

Morzine is a small Alpine village, very safe with a real sense of community; a perfect size for kids to discover.  It is in an ideal location to offer a huge range of activities making it an ideal base for a French Alpine Summer camp study trip.
