Junior and Teen Camp, Flims-Laax, Switzerland

Locations

Running international camps has been a family affair for us since 1965. We are happy to share our passion with our campers and to welcome them back year after year, from generation to generation. It is with great pleasure that we repeatedly see the friendships and links formed during the campers’ stay at camp extend to later in life. The satisfaction we receive only increases our commitment to providing a fun, safe, and enriching experience to each and every camper.

JTC is family owned-and-operated by Rose-Marie, Bernard, and Gilles Repond. JTC offers a safe environment for unique experiences of learning, discovery, and sharing.

JTC welcomes boys and girls aged 7 to 16. The campers and staff come from every part of the world, making interaction and new friendships all the more special.
