The Outdoor Classroom


Forest School • Holiday Clubs • Camps • After School Club • Tours


The Outdoor Classroom provides outdoor educational programmes for children in Switzerland, offering a variety of outdoor learning opportunities and fun activities for your child. The groups are led in English. Our purpose is to serve the individual needs of every child, to enable them to thrive in their lives. It is our passion to assist children throughout their journey to a happy and healthy childhood.

Forest school is an educational approach to outdoor learning. The aim of our forest school sessions is to bring learning experiences outside the classroom and practice speaking English. Trained practitioners nurture child led exploration and discovery, creating meaningful and positive experiences with lifelong impacts. We recognise the social, emotional and physical needs of a participant: our role is to facilitate achieving these goals and guide each individual on their unique journey.
