Summer educational camp

Our Active Learning Camps programs are always designed with educational purposes: discover the arctic, learn from nature, take part in a respectful community.

During camp, we organise many day trips to local attractions and museums so that children can explore new horizons, learn about Lapland history, the culture in the Far North and meet the locals.

We consider our mission not only to teach but also give children trust and responsibilities. At camp, one hour a day is devoted to simple tasks for kids to participate in the daily life of our small community.

In our educational approach, we especially focus on the impact of climate change, and adopt a responsible behaviour to lead by example. We involve children in little eco-friendly actions to raise awareness about their power to making things change.


Summer educational camp

Offer your child memories for the rest of their life! Our programs are filled with many various activities and day trips that will let children enjoy every second of their week in Lapland!

Based on our experience in the hospitality and adventure sectors, our activity program is designed to offer children the best of Lapland in summer: canoeing, learning from nature, meeting the arctic animals, fishing, camping, storytelling around the fire, reindeer farm visit, local handicrafts, meeting with Santa Claus, sauna… the list never ends!

Our summer camp offers a complete immersion in an English-speaking environment. Every child is then given the chance to learn and practice English in a friendly and fun way.

All our activities are safely supervised by the animators and professional arctic guides.

We believe education should be accessible to every child. Following our philosophy and values, we commit to keeping our pricing as low as possible to offer all children the possibility to take part in such a lifetime experience, while keeping the services quality to our high standards.

Our Active Learning Camps programs are naturally adapted to the age levels of the children; they are also designed to be inclusive for all regardless of learning or physical disabilities.

In our typical week of camp, we combine day trips, outdoor activities, team sports, relaxing evening activities, eco-friendly actions and educational trips to provide children with a complete fun & educative program.
