The Camp

Main Building - International Summer Camp Montana

International Summer Camp Montana is a privately owned and operated camp in the Swiss Alps for boys and girls from all over the world, from 8 to 17 years of age.

For over 50 years, International Summer Camp Montana has employed European traditions in the development of physical and intellectual achievement.

The philosophy of the camp is to provide both an outdoor and healthy living experience, through sport, in a creative and wholesome environment.

Through the wide range of activities offered, our campers are enriched in both mind, body and spirit.

Being an international camp, each child has the opportunity to broaden his outlook by meeting people from different countries and varied backgrounds.

The combination of recreational, educational and social activities with co-operative living enables each camper to acquire a maturity and independence essential to their own well-being. By respecting others, our campers develop a better understanding of democratic ideals and responsible citizenship.

International Summer Camp Montana provides a unique opportunity to understand oneself better by living with others in beautiful surroundings which are full of happiness and learning.
