Best Summer Camps in Europe

Europe is a continent that is relatively small but with many independent countries. With its momentous history, cutting-edge culture, and breathtaking landscapes, Europe attracts more tourists than anywhere else. Out of Earth’s ten most visited countries, seven are located in Europe, with good reason.

Ideal Weather
Summer is the best time to discover Europe as weather will be generally sunny. Summer programs offered by International Schools take place during summer holidays, from June to late August. The average temperature for July at major cities throughout Europe range around 25 to 32 degrees Celsius (76 to 90 Fahrenheit).

International airports
London Heathrow is the biggest airport in Europe, based on passenger volume. The second largest airport in Europe is Charles de Gaulle in Paris.

Summer Sports
With snowy 4,000-metre peaks, turquoise sea, multiple rivers and lakes, Europe is an outdoor paradise offering unlimited opportunities for students to engage with the outdoors. Whether on foot or on a bike, in the mountains, on water or in the air, if you are looking for an endless choice of sports you can’t be wrong with Europe.

Most Europeans speak more than 2 languages as studying a second foreign language for at least one year is compulsory in more than 20 European countries. You can be sure to find the language you wish to study in Europe such as English, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian and more.

For many, Europe represents the height of culinary accomplishment. Each country offers a unique culinary history that most will recognize, including Spanish tapas, French cheese, Italian pastas and meats, swiss chocolates and so on.

To visit all countries in Europe you generally need only one Schengen visa. Many countries do not even need a visa for entry into the Schengen Area. More info on wiki voyage.

Please find below our selection of the most exciting summer camps in Europe that can make the summer holidays a truly memorable experience, filled with sports, adventures, fun and learning. Students will have the chance to meet new friends from all over the world while participating in enriching programmes and learning new skills that they keep for a life time.

  • Set in beautiful Lugano, the TASIS Summer Programs in Switzerland offer intensive academic courses, an unparalleled performing arts program, thrilling outdoor adventures, advanced sports training, and exciting cultural excursions to students ranging in age from 4½–18.

    When you come to TASIS, you will discover a vibrant global community of students who represent more than 50 nations and speak more than 30 languages. The TASIS experience unlocks the unique potential of every student and produces what our founder, M. Crist Fleming, called “international human beings—men and women who are capable of moving easily in any society and any civilization on the face of the earth.”

    The magic begins on our campus. Perched on a hillside in sunny southern Switzerland with commanding views of snow-capped mountains, palm trees, and Lake Lugano, our ever-evolving global village comprises 25 buildings dating from the historic 17th-century Villa De Nobili to the state-of-the-art Campo Science Center.

    Capitalizing on our location in the heart of Europe, our travel program will introduce you to majestic natural settings—from the Swiss Alps to the Italian lakes to the Mediterranean coast—and to stunning Swiss and Italian cities, including Andermatt, Basel, Zermatt, Zurich, Florence, Milan, Rome, Siena, and Venice.

    There is no shortage of adventure opportunities at the TASIS Summer Programs. Whatever you wish to try—be it whitewater rafting, canyoning, kayaking, canoeing, waterskiing, windsurfing, sailing, paddleboarding, glacier hiking, ice climbing, rock climbing, zip-lining, or riding an alpine slide—we have you covered.

    If you’re a sports enthusiast, you may choose to participate in our tennis or golf academies; in our Armani Junior Basketball Club, where coaches from the Olimpia Milan Armani Junior Program focus on physical strength and the elements of fitness necessary to improve player confidence and performance; or in our AC Milan Junior Camp, which offers you the exceptional opportunity to work on your skills with coaches from the renowned AC Milan Club.

    While our programs provide plenty of time to play and explore, most mornings are dedicated to traditional classroom learning with a first-rate team of dedicated educators. Among other options, you can take intensive courses in Italian, French, or English as an Additional Language; build an academic writing portfolio; prepare for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program; learn how to cook like an Italian; develop your own lean startup; and study robotics, science, graphic design, digital photography, architecture & design, fashion & textile design, or musical theater.

    With our younger students, we focus on building confidence and nurturing curiosity about the world in a safe, family-like atmosphere. Small class sizes allow our professional educators to engage the children using songs, games, and hands-on activities that help make learning fun, and our international environment helps students develop an appreciation for other languages and cultures.

    Our visual and perfoming arts programs are designed to build confidence and bring out the artist in every child. Whether you want to star in an original musical, learn a new instrument, perform a modern dance, write your own script or song, paint a canvas of the campus, take the perfect photo, design a poster, create an architecture model, or design a clothing line, our devoted team of professional artists and educators will help you achieve your goal.

    The most important aspect of our programs is friendship, and global friendships help us become global citizens. Where else can you meet people from more than 50 countries who quickly become a second family? The TASIS Summer Programs challenge you to grow into the best version of yourself.
