    COVID-19 Response 

    Dear campers and parents, I trust this message finds you well. Due to Covid restrictions, we had to adapt our 2022 Summer Programs, offering only the on-campus Swiss Language Club to European kids. The health and well-being of each participant remains our priority. SEA face masks were distributed to all participants and staff.

    For all teenagers from around the world, we also offered online personal development program.

    We are now preparing the summer 2022 sessions and look already forward meeting you. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to let me know. Warm regards, Mr Amaury, Director of Junior Programs

    Director's Message

    Amaury Depaux, Swiss Education Academy Youth Programs Director

    Dear Parents,

    Since 1983, Swiss Education Academy (SEA) has welcomed hundreds of students from across the world to its holiday camps in Switzerland. Over the years, Swiss Education Academy has become an example in organising summer camps for teenagers and young adults, with the support of the Swiss Education Group.

    Every summer, we welcome your children with the hope of seeing them grow, discover and have fun in a safe and healthy environment.

    ■ We wish to see them grow their knowledge and language abilities but also to see them assert themselves as individuals. In order to help, we offer a vibrant, multicultural setting and a range of challenging activities for every participant to learn from.

    ■ We help our students discover beautiful Switzerland, with stunning mountain views, clear blue lakes, and world renowned chocolate and cheese. Our country is a land of hospitality, something we like to share with our students.

    ■ We want them to have fun, after all that is what summer is for. We provide the best recreation our surroundings could offer, and organize unforgettable evening activities, that will surely become precious memories.

    It is our responsibility to take the steps that will ensure a safe and enjoyable stay for your children, and we see it as our priority. Our camps meet the high standards of the Swiss youth protection services in terms of security. All members of staff have to submit a clear criminal record and all activities are supervised by qualified staff and professional guides when required.

    We also take pride in our facilities, that includes modern classrooms, double bedrooms with a private bathroom, and restaurants, where chefs from our culinary schools make delicious meals.

    My team and I are thrilled to welcome your children to Switzerland for an unforgettable summer, that will most certainly give way for new friendships.

    If you require any further information, feel free to contact me at your convenience.

    Amaury Depaux
