Our Special Winter Ski Camp Experience in Switzerland

Why experience your Ski Camp with Surval?

Set in our inspiring, multicultural environment in Switzerland, our Winter Camp experience is packed full of learning, self-discovery and adventure. From our base in Surval Montreux, we explore an exciting variety of beautiful Swiss ski resorts and other cultural destinations.  

Through their Surval experience girls broaden their perspectives, develop their French and become competent skiers, whilst making friends from all over the world and memories for life. 


More than just a Winter Sports experience! 

Girls joining during the winter term will benefit from weekly skiing on Thursday afternoons and additional optional skiing at weekends, combined with an intense French language programme and courses in Etiquette and the Arts together with cultural excursions. They will integrate with other High School and Language and Culture students for the different courses.

Surval Swiss Winter Camp

'My Surval experience as a winter camper was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I had to get out of my comfort zone meeting many new people and staying in a new environment for two months and I now have friends from all over the world.  Since going to Surval I have become a lot more confident in myself and more independent.  Surval has been the making of me!’ 

-Sophie, Ireland, Winter Camp 2022
