Let it Snow!
New to the Camp XL lineup this year is 'Ski 1823'. You no longer need to miss out on the great fun of ski camp simply because you've moved on from school to uni! Whether you fancy skiing or snowboarding, whether you’re experienced or a complete novice, if you're aged 18-23 you’re assured of a week full of fun, laughter and thrills on Ski 1823.
Days start with a morning buffet breakfast and are then filled with fun, thrills and laughter on the slopes. Ski/board with us and let us show you the best runs on the mountain, or break away do you own thing with your friends and meet us back in the chalet for supper in the pretty resort village of Adelboden. We'll lay on plenty of options, but you'll be free to spend the days as you wish.
In the evenings, after supper, we'll all come together for a few minutes and see what it is that Christians believe, and why. This is a time discuss, question and explore. Whilst we expect a number of participants to be practicing Christians, many will certainy not be. These discussion times are aimed primarily with the latter in mind.
What if I've never skied or boarded before?
No worries! But you'll need to take lessons on at least the first couple of days, and we can hep you organise those for an additional cost. Most people find they are competent enough to access most areas of the mountain after that. Remember, being part of a group like this is a great and fun way to learn.
What does the price include?
The price of £397 covers you for your six day lift pass, full board and lodging, and local transfers. On top of that you'll need to allow for the cost of...
- Ski/Board hire, unless you are bringing your own kit. We can arrange this for you at a cost of £200.
- Lessons, if you are a novice or fancy a refresher
- International Travel to/from Geneva Airport
- Winter sports insurance (see below), though many families already have this in their standard travel policies.
In addition you'll need to bring suitable ski wear
Do I need insurance?
Yes, you do. Camp XL is covered by public liability insurance (ask us for details of this is you need to), but that won't pay for any medical expenses in the event that you have an accident out there. This is typically called "Winter Sports" cover. You'll you'll be required to show proof of cover for this before you ski with us.
You should also make sure you have a valid EHIC card which will give you access to basic outpatient services there in case you fall ill.
What if I'm not a Christian?
No problem! All of Camp XL's programmes are open people from all faiths and backgrounds.
We'll make sure we give you as much time as we can in the snow, then each evening we'll take some time to learn together what it is that Christians believe - and why.
Make of these brief times what you will, but we're confident you'll find them stimulating and engaging.
For this camp we're taking over a lovely chalet on the edge of the picturesque village of Adelboden, where you'll sleep in a small dorm alongside 4-6 others (same sex, of course!) on a proper full sized bed.
Adelboden is the perfect venue for a ski camp such as ours. Although it hosts the Word Cup Slalom circuit each year, it remains largely unknown by the packs of Ski tourists - and this means there is usually very little waiting time for chairlifts.
That, plus the fact that the resort boasts over 170km of runs to suit all abilities, and a high level glacier(which virtually assures snow in even the worst season), it's hard to beat.

The price for Ski 1823 includes round-trip transfers to our resort from Geneva airport (Swiss side), and back again at the end of the holiday. You'll need to make your own arrangements to/from Geneva. Given that the cheaper flights tend to operate later in the day, we propose to meet you at Geneva at 21:30 on the evening of April 1.
For your return flight, we'll get you back to Geneva by 15:30, so any flight with a departure time of 17:30 or later will be suitable. Ask us if you have any doubts.
