For schools

School trips, project weeks and snow sports camps

Extracurricular learning

School camps provide the ideal setting for conveying curricular content in a special way. Spending time together away from the classroom creates a new sense of community and fosters social skills. Cohesion within the class is reinforced, while the mutual trust between students and teachers is enhanced.

We offer comfortable accommodation, first-class facilities and numerous interesting options for school trips and school camps.
Wherever you want to go, whatever you want to do – at Swiss Youth Hostels, you’ll find the right place with unbeatable value for money.

Teachers and accompanying persons stay for free

In 45 Swiss youth hostels, teachers and accompanying persons stay for free during school camps.

For groups from 10 students, one teacher or accompanying person stays free of charge, including meals; one additional accompanying person stays free of charge for each extra 10 students.

Offer valid only for direct bookings.
