More than a Summer Camp, 70 years of passion for education.

This is a special year for us at Préfleuri as we celebrate its 70 years of existence. During the summer of 1948, Préfleuri welcomed its first pupils, a group of Belgium girls discovering the beauty of our mountains.

With time, this unique holiday camp grew into a renowned International school. In growing, Préfleuri has adapted to the evolutions of society, yet has maintained the authenticity of its atmosphere, and its homely environment has nurtured an acute sense for children’s needs.

Welcoming children of all nationalities from ages 3 to 14, a journey at Préfleuri is a time shared with our family who will welcome you with open arms. Everyone here, whatever their age, will find their happiness.

70 years, four generations and always the same passion for education

Life at Préfleuri’s Summer Camps

Our week begins on Saturday with the arrivals and the departures.

Morning – 3 hours of language courses in English, French or Individual Tutoring.

Afternoon – Sports represent an important part of our activities: from tennis to horse riding, to martial arts or rock climbing. Mountain biking & kayaking, there are too many to mention, each day represents a new adventure.

We always make sure we enjoy the best of our beautiful surroundings, which sometimes involve the comfort of our mountain refuge in the forest, as well as banana boat trips on lake Geneva, or simply visiting some of the exciting amusement parks of the region.

Evening – It would not be a complete day without a full evening of fun. From laser game nights to themed shows or our famous weekly buffet. Creating wonderful memories until the end of the day.
