"The Enchanted Kingdom"



Monday, 09 / 16 August  - Lion Scavenger Hunt around Zurich

I spy with my wandering eye!


Welcome to first day of camp! Today we get to know each other through a variety of interactive games and team building challenges. Then, we will embark on an extraordinary adventure around the Enchanted Kingdom of Zurich, discovering one of the many magical creatures that live here: the winged Lion - the fierce protector of Zurich. He will be our guide around the city, showing us his favourite spots to play, teaching us about the city and we will even have a picnic with him in the park. We will also let our creative juices run free and create a keep-sake from our lion adventure: a grizzly lion mask to take home!...who said lions only lived in jungles? ROAAAR!

Dragons and Mini Golf


Did you know Dragons lived in Zurich? Yep, and they dwell in a China Garden just by the coast of Lake Zurich! Today, we will make our way over to the Land of the Dragons and perhaps we will be lucky enough to even spot one! In addition, we will make our own flying dragons, fly them in the park by the lake, investigate the incredible playground there and after lunch, we will head up to the Dolder for an exciting game of Mini Golf!

Wednesday 11 / 18 August -  Bruno Weber Park

Swiss Design and Unicorns

Unicorns, dwarfs, dragons and hundreds of enchanted animals - all these creatures live in a mysterious place called the Bruno Weber Park. And today we will discover how they all turned to stone! 

Inspired by this extraordinary discovery, we will make our own unicorn puppets, collage rainbows and magical Dream Catchers. To make sure we activate our own unicorn powers, we will also participate in the annual Unicorn Olympics in the park - are you ready for all this fun? :)

Thursday 12 / 19 August - Rietberg Museum + Belvoir Park + Dream Catchers

Welcome to the Emerald Tower!

Today we will venture up a mysterious hill, at the top of which there will be a green tower. If you go into it, you will be teleported to the medieval times in Japan! Amazing! Here, we will be surrounded by dragons, Samurais and learn about the art of painting on wood. We will even paint our own miniature wooden painting to then take home. After that we will train to become professional Samurais and conquer the playgrounds in the vicinity.

Friday, 13 / 20 August - Zurich Lake Crossing + Rapperswil Castle + Knie Zoo

Ahoy there, me Mateees!


We set off (by boat!!) on a journey across rough Zurich Lake waters and discover the land of medieval castles, knights and.....deer! Today we will venture to the other side of Lake Zurich to the charming city called Rapperswil. Here, we will learn what it was to be like to be a Knight (and we will make our own armour too!), find out if there were Pirates around these areas, discover why the castle has deer in its gardens and then we will check out the fabulous Knie Zoo - a Zoo started by the Knie Family (who also founded the famous Swiss National Circus - Knie!).

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!
