General information

In a stimulating and supportive environment, your teenagers will benefit from a mountain program focused on sports. Although the main outlines of the program are already defined, the daily activities are collaborative, developed in partnership with your children to grant them enough freedom while guiding them in decision-making. This summer mountain camp for teenagers consists of 3 days of trekking in the Aiguilles Rouges massif, followed by 3 days in the heart of the Mont-Blanc massif on the Glacier du Tour. It ensures your child daily physical activities and a unique high-mountain experience.

Throughout this stay, a real group cohesion will be established, allowing your child to fully experience teamwork during glacier hiking. Values such as trust, mutual assistance, encouragement, respect for others, and risk awareness will be at the core of this experience, representing a significant step towards adulthood! To meet the needs of your children, this camp is led by two mountain professionals specialized in activities with minors, complemented by two additional professionals during glacier activities. This summer camp for teenagers is suitable for both beginners and experienced athletes. Regular practice of endurance sports is necessary.

Upon reaching the chalets, we engage in conversation with the shepherd before crossing the alpine meadow to reach Lake de Pormenaz (1,945m).

After ascending the wild Villy Valley, we turn towards the Col de Salenton (2,526m). At the pass, Mont Buet reveals itself, and we quickly transition through landscapes of scree and desolate areas, where only a few animal and plant species persist. At the summit of Mont Buet (3,098m), the panorama is breathtaking, overlooking the Mont-Blanc Massif. After lunch, we set off again to begin the descent towards the welcoming refuge of la Pierre à Bérard (1,924m). We enjoy a good meal and spend the night at the refuge.
