WHAT IS THE LINK BETWEEN RÉGENT CAMPS AND LE ROSEY CAMPS?
Since 2019 Le Rosey and Le Rosey Camps entered into partnership with Le Régent, bringing 140 years of education experience to assist with the school’s new direction and identity. During the summer, experienced Rosey Camps directors run two programmes in Crans-Montana in collaboration with Le Régent staff to ensure that Régent Camps reflect the school’s values and spirit, while benefitting from Le Rosey Camps’ experience in organising exceptional summer programmes.

All students live together in a boarding house – girls and boys in separate buildings, Juniors and Seniors on separate floors. The teachers live on the same floor as the students to ensure their well-being, safety and a family atmosphere. All teachers and students eat together on set times. This is how we create a feeling of community and security.

CAN I VISIT THE CAMP?

WHAT KIND OF MEDICAL INSURANCE DOES MY CHILD NEED?
The fee includes an insurance of emergency expenses in case of accident and illness. This is a travel insurance and assistance solution providing cover in the event of a medical emergency resulting from illness or accident. If the child’s health/accident insurance in his/her country of residence does not cover the costs abroad or if the child does not have health/accident insurance, our insurance is activated to cover the costs in Switzerland during the camp. In all cases, our company will contact the child’s health insurance, if it exists.
