Film Academy (ages 10-17)

 

 

After the immensely successful Film Academy run and developed in Austria, we simply had to bring it to our campers in Leysin! The course is incredibly interactive, and campers learn the many aspects of film making, getting involved in all the nitty-gritty. Campers will plan, develop, film, edit, and finally present their own personal films at the end of camp during special night! This is a great moment for campers to show off their new skills and feed off the emotions of the crowd. Campers use very new and serious equipment as well as pro-editing software helping them create movies to the standard they would expect!

 

 

All campers except those at Village SuperCamp and Leadership training Camp are housed in the same building.

 

Dance Camp (ages 10-17)

 

The Dance Camp was created after numerous requests for a more serious and involved dance programmeand we have not disappointed! Campers who take part in the Dance Camp as their main focus spend a good 3 hours and sometimes more out of their day to improve their dance skills, learn routines, techniques, etc, making them better all-round dancers. These skills are obviously taught by professionals, often brought in from over-seas, or carefully selected from specific Swiss dance programmes. A great camp for those serious about dance!
