Why C.A.S. camp?

This is an immersive challenge where students solve real-life problems and develop innovative solutions.

Having the opportunity to complete this project will mean students can log these hours outside of school time while having a fun and enriching experience and leave more time during the academic year for the extended essay and general study.

Evening Activities - Students work collaboratively in their team to complete project work and there will be opportunities to explore Montreux or participate in the camps evening activity program.

Excursions - This is a large part of camp and a time where everyone enjoys creating lasting memories. Examples are Surfing to Alaiha bay surf centre, Indoor skydiving in Sion, or exploring the city of Geneva and Lausanne. The weekend's expeditions are to mountain refuges to spend the night after an adventure and bond as a team.
