LAS summer

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 cultures, sights, and sounds of cities like Geneva, Bern, Montreux, and Lausanne.
