At JFK Swiss Outdoor Camps offers multiple opportunities to explore and enjoy the winter alpine environment. With activities such as skiing and ice skating the students will find the challenge and joy they look for in the activities. Team building is also reenforced with the construction of igloos as a challenge. Using all the equipment provided, your team must plan, construct and be able to enter the igloo constructed by their team. Our certified mountain guides will ensure a safe and fun journey while the kids have the time of their lives. Kids will enjoy cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and even make their own snowshoes out of natural materials found in the winter forest. All activities are adapted for the ages and by groups of 6 students for every mountain guide. Chances are they won’t stop talking about it the whole way home.

Outdoor learning is all about Nature. You learn with demonstration and evidence. Touching and seeing is all it is about.


Adventure is the move that thrives us now in this world. Crossing a river will never be the same after this winter.

Team Building

Team work will teach us how to work in a group, how to tolerate others and how to build self esteem.

"Children are born naturalists. They explore the world with all of their senses, experiment in the environment, and communicate their discoveries to those around them."
