Surval Winter Camp 2023

Minimum Stay: 3 weeks

Our Special Winter Experience

Each year, Surval Winter Camp welcomes girls to join Surval Montreux from 3 weeks to a full term.  

Surval Winter Camp is a world-class experience packed full of learning, self-discovery, and adventure, making friends from all over the world and memories for life!

Surval Winter Camp, exclusively for girls aged 12-19, combines academic and physical challenges in a beautiful region of Switzerland. Those who join our Winter Camp become members of the international Surval Montreux community, and are fully integrated into school life, enjoying a multitude of clubs, activities, and experiences, studying French, English and other classes, all with students who are here for the full school year. An extra language can be studied if desired, or additional lessons in a school subject if required. 

There are plenty of opportunities for skiing and snow sports with two ski days each week and busy activities and weekend programmes. The whole school takes to the slopes on Thursday afternoons (Ski Thursdays) and we also offer weekends in Gstaad, Verbier and other world-renowned Swiss ski resorts.  Highly qualified instructors teach our girls skiing and snowboarding in small groups based on ability.
