By the Great Wall of China


Day 1- Greetings, All about Asia & China Garden with adventure fountain trail!

Hello, Ni hao!


Today, is our welcome day! We get to know each other while playing a variety of fun games!

Today we discover where Asia lies, what it is famous for and which countries belong to it. We will visit the famous China Garden and on an adventure trail around Zurich find fountains, parks and playgrounds. To activate our creative juices we will practice some Tai Chi and then create traditional Chinese lanterns & make the most beautiful paper fans!

An exciting first day awaits!

Masai Mara National Reserve Kenya


Day 2 - Amazing Africa, Safari Animal Masks and Lindt Home of Chocolate

African Mask Making and Lindt Home of Chocolate

Today we will discover the amazing African Continent. We will go on a Safari and learn about the Ugly Five. We will dance to African music, make necklaces and bracelets made with many beads. After a morning of discovering Africa we will head out on a Lion Hunt and make our way over to the Lindt Chocolate Factory (because did you know that the cocoa beans that make Swiss chocolate SO AMAZING, come from Madagascar; and the cocoa butter that makes our Schoggi so smooth is from the Côte d'Ivoire - in Africa!) Oh and did I mention - we can try ALL the chocolate today!
Once back at Academicus, more excitement awaits! Today we will also be making animal masks and puppets and playing many new games.



Day 3 - Magical Mexico and North America + NONAM (North American Native Museum)

Hola! Hello to North America!

North America has so much to offer! We will learn about Canada, the USA and Mexico. We will make amazingly colourful Mexican crafts to take home and also become real Mariachis. After a morning of fun, games and crafts, we will head over to NONAM to see if we can find even more artistic inspiration from the native people of North America. Of course, we will also read some books, visit some playgrounds and as always have heaps of fun!

Colorful Drummers


Day 4 - South America and Brazilian Capoeira + Sukkulentensammlung

Pink Dolphins + Capoeira = Brazil! and spiky cacti:)

After visitng to North America, we head to South America, where we learn about the Amazon Jungle and Pink Dolphins that live in the Amazon river! We will make cute pink dolphins to take home and learn some Brazilian capoeira movements. Boa dia to this beautiful country and Hola to all the others! 

But did you know that Brazil is HUGE and has an incredibly diverse landscape, that includes also succulents - and that will be what we will be on the look out for in the afternoon! Back at Academicus more books, crafts and fun awaits us!

We will then head over to the AMAZING Zurich Zoo, where we will be on the look-put for Kangaroos, Koalas, Emus and Goannas! If time permits, back at Academicus we will put our creative skills to the test - and make aboriginal-inspired didgeridoos! Heaps of Fun guaranteed:)

We are so lucky to have found you! I can say, you were born to make kids happy! They've made such great memories during the camp and for that I am deeply grateful! I must confess, I was sad today when I realised that the camp ended. Every afternoon, I was so excited to hear what kind of adventures they experienced! Hope we can see you as often as possible!
