Plainpalais & Plan-les-Ouates
One of the best camps in Geneva. Kids can enroll for one week, one day, or any amount of days they need. During the camp they will discover different materials and create with them – create whatever they like. It’s a camp filled with freedom, where a lot is left to kids’ imagination under the loving eyes of 3 wonderful educators. It’s one of those camps kids don’t like to leave at the end of the day. During the summer Parentville’s own Z. wished she could sleep there and never leave the fun. You can find out more here.
