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 lets students create a program tailored to their interests. Students select a morning program, club, and afternoon activities, then all students participate in our evening socials.

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.


The Language Track is an intensive course that immerses students in their chosen language (English or French). Students are divided by age and ability (elementary, intermediate, or advanced) within each group. This program will also require students to do an afternoon club focusing on building their language skills.

The Academic Track is made up of three programs: the Makerspace Program, the Nature of Math Program, and the Unsolved Mysteries Program. Students can’t go wrong with their choice—each program offers the opportunity to problem solve, collaborate, and build new skills.

The Sports Track consists of two programs: Tennis and Mountain Leadership Development. Students in the Tennis program will engage in challenging and fun training on the court. Students in the LAS Mountain Leadership Development Program will learn about environmental sustainability and responsibility while developing leadership and communication skills through a variety of vigorous outdoor activities.


LAS Summer clubs are a great way for students to expand their interests and meet new people from outside their morning programs. Past club options have included Cooking and Baking, Sports, Art, Music Creation, Health and Fitness, Dance, Martial Arts, and Robotics and Coding.

Afternoon activities add extra variety to students’ daily schedules. Options may include arts and crafts, biking, hiking and climbing, dance, team sports, horseback riding, games, music, and more!

Following a busy morning and afternoon of programs and activities, all students participate in our evening socials. These campus-wide events have included activities like glow-in-the-dark dodgeball, dances, banquets. All students also have the opportunity to participate in excursions throughout the summer! Some of the past exciting trips we have offered include Zermatt, Bern, Interlaken, Zurich!
