Camp overview

The Brillantmont summer course has been running for nearly forty years. It is extremely popular and many students return year after year. For some, it is their first time away from home ; for others, it is a way of getting to know Brillantmont before commencing the school year in September. Doing excursions and activities all together is a very important part of the Brillantmont experience, helping build friendships from all over the world and feeling at home.

Family owned and run since 1882 , during the school year Brillantmont welcomes students aged 13-18 (Grades 8-12) to follow a challenging curriculum, with small classes, innovative learning, providing students with 21st Century skills to thrive in a rapidly changing world. Numerous extra-curricular activities provide opportunities for growth and development, in a supportive, inclusive home from home. The US and British programmes enable 100% entrance to universities worldwide.


Students choose to study French or English. On arrival, students are tested in their chosen language and put into the appropriate class. The average class size is 12 students, so there is a lot of teacher contact.

The language classes take place in the mornings from 09h00 to 12h15, with a 15 minute break in the middle. In the first period, the student focuses on grammar and language structure, whereas, in the second period, with a different teacher, the focus is more on communication and oral fluency.


Every afternoon, students take sports classes with others of the same age. Sports may include tennis, basketball, trampolining, football, ultimate frisbee, volleyball, zumba, running circuits, unihockey.

Some classes take place on campus; others take place in the surrounding area and by the lake, where if the conditions are suitable, students can enjoy windsurfing.
