Summer

The LAS experience doesn’t have to come to an end when the summer begins—the summer of 2018 saw the launch of our two new and dynamic summer programs, LAS summer and LAS edge.

We have been running summer programs since 1949 and our new programs combine all the tried and true elements of camp our students have come to know and love with some exciting, innovative changes.

Summer Programs

LAS summer allows students to create a program that is tailored to their personal interests and aspirations. Students are invited to select from one of three morning programs: the Language program, Academic program, or Sports program. Programs are followed by clubs, afternoon activities, and evening socials, each of which uniquely provide opportunities for students to meet other campers from outside their program, be active, participate in team-building activities, and exercise their creativity. Weekend excursions allow students to explore their host country and take in the culture, sights, and sounds of cities like Geneva, Bern, Montreux, and Lausanne.

LAS edge is a program that emphasizes self-discovery, highlighting the LAS mission statement of “developing innovative, compassionate, and responsible citizens of the world.” Each week of edge is dedicated to exploring one of these traits in depth, introducing students to well-known inspirational speakers, taking them on company visits, and inviting them to participate in fun activities that are designed to push their limits. Evenings for edge students are a time to unwind, spend time with LAS edge Families, participate in planned group activities, or even take part in workshops, talent shows, dance competitions, or banquets.
