Le Camp is an independent non-profit organisation placed under the surveillance of the Swiss Confederation.

logo UCJGThe Foundation's aim is to encourage, promote and facilitate community and associative life, particularly among young people. This is a means of training for learning respect for others, dialogue, exchanges, openness and tolerance, as these values contribute greatly to the promotion of solidarity and democracy. Thus, differences of any kind become sources of personal enrichment.

 

It was created by the Young Men's Christian Association (YMCA).

The Foundation Board is composed of 13 volunteer members. Five have been elected to the Advisory Bureau in addition to Le Camp's Director.

Le Camp's team of professionals collaborates with seasonal employees and volunteers during times of need.

To ensure lifelong preservation of its heritage, expand guest accommodation, and increase the quality of comfort to meet modern standards, Le Camp Foundation pursues a continuous investment policy in order to maintain and improve its infrastructure.

Although it has a solid basis, the operation of Le Camp does not enable it to release all the financial resources required for these renovations. Le Camp Foundation is therefore appealing to generous sponsors from companies, institutions, and private donors to meet these needs.

  • Work day to prepare the camp for the summer season

    Work day to prepare the camp for the summer season

    The Work Day is a very important day for the Camp Foundation, as it allows us to keep the facilities in good shape for our guests to enjoy.

    Twice a year, many members of the Works Committee and other volunteers come together to give the Camp Foundation a fresh start and look after its buildings and grounds.

    This spring, this convivial day, which also aims to bring people together and have a good time, will take place on 24 April 2021.

    A lot of maintenance work is planned, which will allow the Camp Foundation to be maintained at low cost but high quality during this rather uncertain period. This will be an opportunity to take care of our forest edge, where a fence needs to be removed, to improve the quality of the fence around the Passerelle building, to adapt the profile of the steps of our main building, or to give the Zwingli room a good lick of paint.

    All hands are welcome on this Work Day, and requests for participation can be forwarded to our This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., who will moderate them according to health restrictions. Of course, the COVID-19 measures will be observed and respected.

  • The 2021 Tasting Meal is reschedulded

    The 2021 Tasting Meal is reschedulded

    The 2021 Tasting Meal, originally scheduled for the 20th of February 2021, will be moved to March or April 2021.


    Due to the measures taken by the Federal Council with regard to the Corona virus, the Tasting Meal that we had planned for the 20th of February 2021 will unfortunately not be able to take place on that date.

    The aim of this meal is to introduce our future guests for the coming year as well as any interested gourmet to the dishes and novelties that we have à la carte, in order to help them in their menu planning or simply to spend a gourmet moment.

    The event will be rescheduled as soon as the health situation is more relaxed and will allow more people to gather, if possible before the start of the high season (May).

    The new date will be announced on our website as soon as it is known.

  • Happy holiday season !

    Happy holiday season !

    Le Camp Foundation wishes everyone a happy holiday season

    2020...

    A special year, very different from the others, full of uncertainties and difficulties to overcome.

    A year in which we had to constantly reinvent ourselves, find solutions, adapt, sometimes give up.

    As was the case with our Christmas Market 2020, which we regrettably had to cancel because of the health situation and the measures taken by the Confederation. And yet, what a wonderful enthusiasm this market has generated among the region's craftsmen and craftswomen! Le Camp Foundation was able to count on a very large and talented number of registrations from artisans who not only attended, but also showed a heart-warming enthusiasm. We look forward to planning an upcoming market and bringing them all together as soon as the location permits.

    While it has its share of challenges, 2020 was above all a magnificent year of mutual aid, both nationally and locally, during which Fondation Le Camp had the immense opportunity to (re)discover the solidarity of its hosts, as well as the generosity and support of its Friends and partners, whom it sincerely thanks.

    We therefore wish everyone a wonderful holiday season, a wonderful New Year's Eve and a healthy and happy start to 2021. Take care of each other, and all the best to everyone!

  • Seminars and company meals with distance maintenance

    Seminars and company meals with distance maintenance

    Special Covid-19: Seminar and company meals in compliance with sanitary measures

    The Le Camp Foundation has been able to adapt to the various health restrictions that have affected Switzerland recently, following the evolution of the Covid-19 pandemic.

    On the strength of its experience and its protection concept, it is now able to accommodate groups of up to 40 people for full seminar days, while respecting the distances of 1m50.

    For this purpose, our conference rooms are installed as shown in the picture, with the chairs spaced 1m50 apart.

    During the meal, the participants in the seminar day are placed at both ends of a 1m90 long table, with the tables spaced 1m50 apart.

    Disinfectant is available throughout the day in all seminar rooms, which are themselves regularly disinfected.

    Lists of participants are obligatory and allow, if necessary, a very quick tracing.

    Wearing a mask is not obligatory within the same group of guests, but is strongly recommended.

    The Fondation Le Camp thus wishes to offer a quality solution, suitable for companies who wish to maintain their end-of-year meals or organise training or seminar days.

  • Photoshooting Inspiration Wedding at Le Camp Foundation 

    Photoshooting Inspiration Wedding at Le Camp Foundation 

    On 22 August 2020, Le Camp Foundation was delighted to welcome its first "photoshooting - wedding inspiration" in the company of its favourite wedding providers.

    On this wonderful day, many of the region's wedding providers, who usually collaborate with the Le Camp Foundation, got together to give free rein to their talent:


    After a successful beauty makeover by Timotée in the Zwingli house and after putting on the magnificent dress of Douce Apparence and the splendid jewellery of Colayco, the bride and groom were photographed from all angles by our talented photographer, Raphaël. Whether near the main building, on the green amphitheatre, in the Rotunda or in the middle of the vineyards, our bride and groom found themselves in the midst of the magnificent decorations created by Mademoiselle C and Histoire de Fleurs especially for the occasion. They even had the chance to taste the wonderful wedding cake made by Confiserie Schmid.

    The photos were recently sent to us and the Fondation Le Camp is delighted to share the result, which can be viewed on our instagram account or our facebook page.
