The Surval Winter Camp provides girls from the age of 13 with the perfect opportunity to combine academic and physical challenge in a beautiful region of Switzerland, with stunning views over Lake Geneva and the mountains.

Those who join Surval as ‘Winter campers’ for part of the Winter term will become members of the international Surval community, and will enjoy many activities, and some classes, with girls who are here for the full school year.

Students develop their language skills either in English or French: they will have the possibility of classes in cuisine and pastry, etiquette and make up, an extra language if they wish, or additional lessons in a school subject if they need this: horseback riding is also a popular elective!  There are plenty of opportunities for skiing-the whole school has skiing on Thursday afternoons-and also at a weekend at Gstaad, Verbier or elsewhere.

A full ski week takes place at La Plagne in France, from 30 January to 6 February. Here there are no academic lessons: it is just a full week of activities on the slopes, skiing, snowboarding or snowshoeing according to choice. Evening activities are organized within the hotel and also out on the slopes.

Whilst at Surval, girls will have optional excursions to places of interest-Geneva, Lausanne, Bern and elsewhere, to see local attractions and of course to shop!

The Surval Winter Camp is available for between three and seven weeks and caters for girls of all nationalities between the ages of 13 and 18.
