Students stay in attractive, modern double or single rooms with free Wi-Fi and in-room sinks, with boys and girls living in different wings of the residence. Bathrooms are shared, and free bed linen is provided and changed every 2 weeks, but you should bring your own towels. Full board is included and all meals are served in the large dining room. For the well-being of students, the school staff live on campus and are available 24 hours a day. Finally, hang out with your fellow residents in the common room, complete with a pool table and dartboard!

The junior camp in Engelberg is ideal for letting off steam and having fun after classes: the afternoon programme alternates numerous sporting activities on the campus (climbing wall, football, volleyball, basketball, swimming, etc.) with cultural outings, shopping and excursions. Trips to Lucerne, Zurich, Interlaken and more – each is a great opportunity to practise your language skills outside of the classroom with students of different nationalities. After dinner, the school’s staff organises themed evenings from BBQ parties to fancy dress and disco nights – it’s time to party!
