Camp Activities

The range of activities is of great importance and occupy most of the afternoons and early evenings. Blessed with a dynamic team and an ideal setting, our camp offers a large number of opportunities in response to the aspirations of the children. The pleasure, the amusement, relaxation, friendships and personal achievements are the ingredients of a stay at La Garenne.

La Garenne enjoys an exceptional location. Perched at an altitude of 1’300m, Villars-sur-Ollon faces the sun whilst being refreshed by pure alpine air. Surrounded by majestic mountain peaks which include Mont Blanc, we overlook the Rhone Valley and the famous Swiss Riviera. Children enjoy the pleasures of both the mountains and the lake, whilst discovering cultural activities in the lake-side cities of Montreux, Lausanne and Geneva.

Daily afternoon activities are determined by the weather forecast and children are grouped by age.
