Autumn Explorer Camp

Aiglon is pleased to offer a unique Autumn camp programme that enables students aged 7-13 to join Aiglon's Junior School. The programme is designed both to give students a perspective of Aiglon's boarding and academic life.

Aiglon offers a British curriculum programme including English and Maths as core subjects. Each day students will spend half of their day immersed in the Aiglon curriculum. After an initial placement test, they will be connected to classes at their level of learning with whom they will remain throughout their time at the School. The other half of the day, students will explore the Swiss region and experience a range of activities such as mountain adventure, camp craft and horseriding.

A dedicated programme director will look after the students as they transition between their various activities, oversee evening activities as well as helping to manage drop-off and pick-up for day students who are enrolled in the Autumn camp.
