Kids Summer Overnight and Day Climbing Camps in Switzerland

We are offering several climbing camps for children around the age of 7-11, based out of Leysin and around Verbier, Val de Bagnes. We are parents to an 8 years old and see the benefits of getting children motivated and started at an early age for climbing and mountain related activities. Our intent is to provide camps for children providing a safe, fun, and relaxing environment.  We are both bilingual IFMGA mountain guides with extensive climbing resumes and excited to share our passion with the next generation.  We provide a low ratio (4:1) to warrant more flexibility and maximise climbing time and safety for children. We want to challenge children and make sure they are having a good time by including activities such as swimming in lakes, treasure hunting, costumes, play ice and of course ice creams! This summer we will offer an overnight camp based in Leysin, VD as well as day camps based around Verbier (all information below). Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have specific questions about the camp, other dates or private trips.
