Coming from US for a month this summer

Hello,

I just found out about this forum today. sEems like there is a lot of good information in here! My husband, 7 year old son and I will be staying in Zurich for a month this July. We are coming for my husband's job and currently live in Los Angeles.

Would love advice on what to do with a video game loving 7 year old! Also, any advice on how to find a good occasional babysitter? We will be staying near Belvoir Park.

Thanks!

When I was that age we once on a holiday in Switzerland went to the Swiss Science Center, http://www.technorama.ch/, a museum in which kids can do loads of practical experiments. Loved it back then and went back some twenty years later - still fun.

I guess that's a good plan for a rainy day.

Re: Coming from US for a month this summer

I have a couple teenage girls who would love to babysit. I also have a 6 year old gaming fanatic boy.
There are tons of things to do in Zurich for a month. Zoo, pedaling on the lake, hiking, taking a train to Lugano just to see the sun ...
You will find lots of fun stuff.
Anyway, PM me if you need a babysitter and I'll pass along your contact info to my girls

Re: Coming from US for a month this summer

Hello, I am a 20 year old student from the UK and I am moving to Zurich at the end of June to complete a 1 year internship for my business degree. I am free evenings and weekends and am looking for an occasional/part time babysitting job. I have experience with family friends children ages 4 and 6 and I have also been a group and activity leader at Lighthouse Summer Camp for 3 years. PM me if you're interested as I can travel to all parts of Zurich,
Thanks
Emma
