Winter Camps

As a child, there is nothing better than to spend the whole day out and about with other children while learning new things at the same time. And this is precisely what they can do in the Destination Gstaad, even in winter. Lovell Camps offers an educational winter camp for children and teens with a focus on adventure out in the open air.

Lovell Camps

Ski and Snowboard camps for children aged five to 15 with professional ski instruction in small classes that also offer après-ski activities such as swimming, ice skating and language lessons.

The Lovell Winter Camp offers oneweek sessions running from December to March and has approximately 30 boarders and between 10 and 15 day campers. The children will learn to ski or snowboard with professional instructors for up to five hours a day.

After skiing, they return to the Lovell Camp's Lodge to enjoy a host of après-ski activities including language lessons in English, French or German; indoor rock climbing; swimming; ice skating; disco; winter hiking and interest groups. The older children are always enthusiastic for the challenging activities such as leadership training and survival skills.
