This is of course possible. Please inform us at registration or get in touch with us later. We would be happy to recommend hotels or provide any further information you might need.
What happens if my child gets sick or has an accident?
Every participant needs to be covered by an accident and health insurance policy valid in Switzerland. (The best and most certain option is to contract a Swiss insurance policy.) Because of this mandatory insurance, every participant is ensured of receiving the very best of care on site and under our direct supervision.

This is indeed possible. We will either charge you for it afterwards, or your child could pay for it themself on site.

We plan and adapt our schedule and activities day-by-day depending on conditions. Changes will be made accordingly and indoor activities will be offered when necessary.

From what age can my child participate?
Children can join us from the age of ten.
My child has a food allergy. Are you able to accommodate this?
We are. Kindly inform us at the time of registration so we can plan accordingly.
What level of skiing is necessary? My child is a beginner. Is it possible to join the camp anyway and learn to ski?
Depending on the number of participants at the camp, we run several groups of different levels and encourage the involvement of any sporty and motivated child. Our goal is to teach skiing and, especially, to have fun skiing together. We are fortunate to have only qualified ski instructors from the Zermatt Ski- and Snowboard school in our camps.
What kind of clothes does my child need?
For skiing and outdoor activities, they will need functional, warm and breathable clothing. As Zermatt is situated at 1,600 m above sea level, it can be cold even in the summer. Thus, particularly for the evenings, we recommend a light down jacket or something equivalent.
