Holiday Activities for the Kids of EPFL-UNIL Employees

CAMPS AT EPFL (4-9 years old)
(new offer since summer 2020, terms and conditions)

Playful and creative explorations indoors and in Nature for children ages 4 -9

As you may know “Polykids / Unimômes” classes on campus will be closed, with a final class 2P running in 2020-21. In this context, the EPFL presidency has asked us to enhance alternative childcare offers for parents at EPFL, especially during holidays.

In collaboration with the UNIL Equality Office and in partnership with our long-standing external provider, l’écoline, we are therefore pleased to offer you the following service.
This is a pilot project, it will be re-evaluated in 2021 based on the requests.

  • Places are limited to 24 kids (approx. 12 kids from each institution).
  • The activities are held from Mondays to Fridays from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm.
  • Meals are taken together and are prepared by a caterer with the label Fourchette verte. Children bring their own morning and afternoon snacks.
  • Given the success of these weeks, we cannot promise that the camps will not be fully booked, we will make the best so that most of the children will have a spot to at least one week.
