At Institut Monte Rosa, even the holidays involve the joy of learning: A special and very popular feature offered by our school are its summer and winter Swiss holidays, "an international lifestyle experience" where students can learn to live with girls and boys from other nations through sports, outdoor activities and language training (French, German or English).

A great variety of programs allows students to obtain self-assurance and to understand and appreciate each other. In the morning, students may choose one or two languages and are placed in the various classes according to their previous knowledge. Afternoons are set aside for active leisure, cultural events and a variety of sports activities.


Teaching boys and girls of different nationalities to live side by side in a spirit of democracy, through sports, open air activities and language courses: that is the main aim of our holiday camps.
