I have sent both my kids to Les Elfes. Tanya and Akshay, have very different personalities & very different interests. Les Elfes was their first independent trip they did without their family. The amazing part is they both came back with the same very positive experience. Akshay, who was in the camp with you this year is giving details to us every day as he relives the experience in his mind. He had a wonderful time and I thank you for making this happen. Your confidence and positive attitude and your experience with this camp made it easy for us to send our kids. I will spread the positive word around. Thanks for everything.

“I have a conviction that a few weeks spent in a well-organized summer camp may be of more value
educationally than a whole year of formal school work.”

Testimonials


Les Elfes was an extremely enjoyable camp and I really enjoyed everything that it had to offer. From the skiing to the hunts, it was all perfect. We also had the chance to make many new friends, some whom we’ve still kept in touch with and talk to. In my opinion, Les Elfes was a trip that has given me a lot of memories and I’d love to hold on to these memories. There is nothing to change in the camp, it’s perfect just the way that it is. Thank you for giving me an opportunity to learn something new every day.

Thank you for your elaborate and incisive analysis of my daughter Naureen’s personality. I must admit that as a parent we tend to overlook some characters, especially the negative ones, of one’s own child. But it is gratifying to read so many positives also. Even if we had a gut feeling of what our daughter’s personality is, another person’s educated analysis is expected to be neutral and closer to the truth. We thank you for your efforts, Naureen was all praise for the way you all took care of the children; I think you must love your job since you put in a lot extra. She still isn’t done with the Swiss stories.
