Time to plan the summer! And by planning the summer, I mean finding the right summer camp in Geneva for your child.
Like every year, also in 2021, Parentville carefully selected the best summer camps in Geneva! You will find camps for little munchkins, school-age kids, and teenagers. Camps in the city centre, and camps in municipalities around. All have different themes. This way, I am sure everyone will find something suitable.
