Calling all young adventurers! Join us this summer for a youth summer camp in the beautiful Italian Alps. This is a sleep-away camp for kids (recommend ages 8 to 13 years old) in the Val di Rhemes, near to the border of France and Italy area led by our favorite nature and hiking guides. Parents are welcome to drop off children and go on their own adventure or stay nearby in the beautiful Val d’Aosta region.
The camp will focus on outdoor experiences and activities in close contact with nature. The kids will learn about plants, animals, stars, stones, rivers and glaciers. They will make new friends coming from different parts of the world, and practice English and Italian in a very organic way. They will hike, run, swim and explore all while enjoying incredibly beautiful sceneries and learning about what living in the mountains means to those who have made it a life choice.
