Alpine French School, the Morzine based language centre for adults and children, has announced a plan to run its summer camps during 2021 online, in the event that international travel isn’t possible or challenging.

The French Summer Camps and Summer Holiday Courses, based in the French Alps, are available for children, teenagers and families. The camps have helped hundreds of children over the years to learn French in a fun environment and then also take part in adventure activities during the afternoons. There’s residential, day and family options available.

However since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic with travel restrictions in place, some families and children are unable to travel to France, so Alpine French School has decided to bring its French Summer Camps and courses directly into homes on a virtual basis, wherever students are in the world.

If Travel Is Possible

New for 2021 – a modern accommodation centre for the residential camp, situated just on the edge of Morzine is located within walking distance of the school, activities and amenities. The modern spacious bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms and charging points place the accommodation centre in what is more comparable to a 2 or 3 star hotel than the traditional children’s outward bound centre offering.

Also launching during 2021 are new programmes that run alongside existing adventure activities such as swimming, horse-riding and hiking for the younger kids and white-water rafting, climbing and mountain biking for the older age group. The new activities include, biathlon, paddle-boarding, mountain zip line and quad biking, helping to ensure that children and teenagers enjoy the best possible activities during their time in the French Alps.
