The pillars of our programs:

Explore & Travel Safely

We believe in the tremendous opportunities for personal development that travel and exploration create, experiences that can only be achieved through a well-organized and structured environment where safety is prioritized without removing space for discovery and adventure.


Our club offers a chance to set aside the competitive demands of school life. To slow down, open up and explore. And in doing so, discover who you are. Our members often say they feel more alive, more connected, and more like themselves in our multiple camps and activities.

Our social aspect

Instead of competition, we value enthusiastic cooperation, friendly communication and playful participation. The camp's positive community creates a magic where participants feel safe, supported, and valued. We help create lifelong friendships and relationships.

A pedagogical approach to entertainment

Nowadays, soft skills are needed like never before. We are creating a learning program that fills the void that schools are unable to teach. It is the process of using focus and self-control to solve problems and set and follow goals. It uses other important life skills such as bonding, perspective taking, and communication. Basically, critical thinking helps us make good, informed decisions.

FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions):

What if I don't have any outdoor experience?

All right! Most of our new students don’t have experience in most of the outdoor activities we do. Our instructors work closely together to teach you the skills you’ll need. By the end of the trip, you’ll be a pro at setting up camp, cooking in the backcountry, and more! If you have experience, our instructors will be happy to help you improve your existing skills.

Am I ready for outings like these?

If you play sports during the school year, you’re probably prepared! We get this question a lot. Being scared is a common feeling whenever you do something new. Outings during the week are not competitions. Above all, they are fun experiences where we will explore a lot, travel, explore natural sites, do outdoor sports, learn life skills, make new friends and disconnect from an overly stressful city life.

What shape should I be in?

Since we will be participating in different outdoor activities throughout each trip, our students must have a minimum of physical fitness to participate in Young Explorers Club but in our experience this is the case for 90% of young people between 11 and 15 years old. We know that fitness is different for everyone, but it’s important to prepare so that you and your classmates can succeed. In the months leading up to your trip, we recommend that you participate in physical activity at least once a week if you are not already doing so. This can be hiking, jogging or running, biking, football or basketball, or anything else that helps your cardiovascular fitness.

What if I'm not comfortable with one of the activities?

Our programs and activities are based on the “challenge by choice” theory. This means that we will encourage all campers to participate and challenge themselves in the activities, but if they are truly opposed to continuing, they absolutely do not have to. We assess the intensity of any activity we do on the abilities of campers as a whole, not individually. An example would be that: We walk as fast as our slowest hiker. We strive to challenge each of our campers and also create situations that give them a sense of accomplishment, confidence, and achievement.

What if I don't know anyone else?

Most of our students come to Young Explorers Club without knowing anyone before their trip. You’ll start making friends as soon as you arrive at the airport (and our instructors will be there to help). Once the journey is over, you won’t want to leave your new community! Most of our students remain friends long after their summer is over.

What are the other students like?

The teenagers who come to the Young Explorers Club are kind, welcoming, eager to learn and come from all over Switzerland. Our groups are full of positive young adults who will work well with each other. YOUNG EXPLORERS CLUB has a strong emphasis on group dynamics and creating a supportive social environment, and our students reflect this.
