June 20th -27th 2020

A week specially designed for Bible-School students from various English speaking European Torchbearer Centres to finish off their stay in Europe in a unique way!         (This camp will be in English only)

What to expect

Standing on a SUMMIT allows you to look back on the trails and obstacles you’ve hiked and climbed to reach that mountain top, but it also opens up new perspectives and lets you see beyond! In a similar way, with this week we want to give you a chance to look back, reflect and nail down things God has been teaching you during bible school. We also want this time to help you “SUMMIT” up and let all the learned lessons impact your life back home! Don’t worry, you’re not coming back to school here, we will only plan on shorter interactive devotional times with lots of room for sharing and discussion.
This camp is going to be a fun relaxing time with lots of opportunities for outdoor activities in the beautiful Engadin valley, including climbing a summit (for those fit enough), hiking, rock climbing, high ropes course and mountain biking. We even offer an optional two days white water kayaking course to learn the very basic skills. So each day you’ll have one or two options for special outdoor programs. However, you will always be free to pass on it, go venture on your own or to just take it easy! There are also many charming historical villages to be discovered, including Lavin itself! 
Besides all the activities, you also get to enjoy an opportunity for great fellowship in an international setting along with students from other Torchbearers Bible School centres, and you will be able to exchange your experiences and encourage each other! Every evening we’ll enjoy some sharing and worship time, sometimes also out at the camp fire!


We will be a group of maximum 16 people and everyone is sharing a bed room with 3-5 others. Sharing life aside from the daily programs, including cooking meals in smaller teams, will also be an essential part of our experience together, so come prepared 😉
