Camp overview

Have the Summer of a Lifetime!

We have been running summer programs since 1949. Our two programs, LAS Summer and LAS Summer Edge, combine all the tried and true elements of camp our students have come to know and love with some exciting, innovative changes.

LAS Summer Edge is an exclusive program for students who want to build their confidence and leadership skills over three weeks. Each week focuses on the elements of the LAS mission statement: "developing innovative, compassionate, responsible citizens of the world."

LAS is a Swiss boarding school offering US High School Diploma, International Baccalaureate, and ESL programs. Students enjoy extracurricular activities in sports, arts, drama, and music, and are able to take part in a ski term and cultural travel. University counseling is provided and emphasized, with students attending top universities in the US and around the world. Our boarding school community provides a stable, caring, and supportive family-like environment.


LAS Summer Edge is an exciting summer program that emphasizes LAS’s mission statement of “developing innovative, compassionate, and responsible citizens of the world.” The three weeks of LAS Summer Edge explore these traits in depth, introducing students to inspirational speakers and inviting them to participate in fun activities that help them explore their individual strengths and build on their self-confidence.

By striking a balance between adventure and education we aim to find the sweet spot where excited, curiosity-driven learning occurs. Students will spend three action-packed weeks unlocking their creative potential, perfecting their team member and leadership skills, and jumping headfirst into the adventure activities Switzerland has to offer, including parapenting, whitewater rafting, and indoor skydiving!
