summer activities during school holidays

Hello everyone
I am looking for some summer classes for my 5 year old during the school break. We live in Zurich. Any information is much appreciated.
Thanks

Re: summer activities during school holidays

Did you not receive the Zürich "Ferienpass" booklets a couple of months ago? They contain all sorts of courses and camps for over the summer holidays. Unfortunately they book up really quickly so you might have missed out. You could probably google an online version and start to make some calls if you're quick, though.

They normally hand them out at school but it's online, too, so just google it.

Good luck.

ZVV Ferienpass available to all kids born between 2001 and 2011

This is a canton of Zurich thing (for parents from other cantons you'd need to check if your local transport network does something similar) and it costs CHF 25. Been around since I was a teenager and it's a great concept.

Re: summer activities during school holidays

It might be helpful if you list what she might be interested in. There are indeed camps for younger kids but requires a bit of searching and reaching out, and generally private and not run by the organised communes, etc. I am not so familiar with Zurich, but around here there is tennis, football, arts and crafts, etc... for all ages. Not sure if into football, but www.intersoccer.ch has camps also in Zurich and Zug, starting from age 3, so that is one possibility. If she has other interests, e.g. dance, see with the local dance schools, they often offer summer classes. Swimming classes are also always possible.

Edited to add, for younger kids, another one that is throughout ch (Schywtz, Zug, Zurich camps in your area), and good to get acquainted with is playball, www.playballkids.com
