Summer Camp 2016

August 1–13, 2016

A world-class coaching team

Learn from two-time world champion Stéphane Lambiel and his team.

Stéphane Lambiel

With two world titles and an Olympic silver, Stéphane is widely regarded as one of the most talented skaters of his generation. He is regularly invited to teach at ISU seminars and national federation camps, and has choreographed competitive programs for world and Olympic medalists.

Peter Grütter

His 40+ years of coaching experience have earned Peter a Swiss Olympic Lifetime Coach Award. He is one of few figure skating coaches who continue to teach proper steps and turns rigorously. Many of Peter's students have competed on world and Olympic stages.

Salome Brunner

Alongside Peter, Salome has been coaching Stéphane throughout his competitive career. She is also the choreographer of European Champion Sarah Meier and many other international skaters. Her programs are known for their subtlety and artistic flair.

Majda Scharl

Majda is a Swiss Olympic-certified physical training instructor and a longtime member of Stéphane's team. Her years of experience with figure skaters have made her an expert in skating-specific off-ice training and periodization.

Lesli Wiesner

Lesli is a former Los Angeles ballet dancer and soloist in the world-famous production Cats. She is now established in Zurich as a ballet teacher and a certified Pilates instructor. Her enthusiasm for dance is contagious.

Anna Bernauer

Anna was the first figure skater to represent Luxembourg at the European and world championships. In her amateur days, she was coached by Michael Huth and Jean-Christophe Simond. She is a full-time coach at the Skating School of Switzerland in Champéry since its creation in August 2014.

Robert Dierking

Robert was inducted into the U.S. Figure Skating Hall of Fame for being the first figure skater in the United States to win Juvenile, Intermediate, and Novice national titles in consecutive years. He uses video analysis to help the skaters understand their movements and improve their weak points.

An inspiring learning experience

The 3S Summer Camp 2016 offers a personal and enriching experience for young skaters with talent and aspiration.

Daily private lessons

Each student will benefit from a daily private lesson with one of our world-class skating coaches who will rotate through the students during the week. To provide maximized individual training quality, admissions are limited to only 36 students per week.

Comprehensive training program

Becoming a great skater requires more than skating lessons. From nutrition to off-ice training, every aspect of our program has been tailored to the needs of our students, aspiring champions. This holistic approach provides a training experience that is engaging and enriching.

Specific group lessons

In addition to their private lessons, students will develop specific skills such as steps, spins, and musicality in small groups based on their abilities so that they can absorb the most out of every lesson.

Good times

The 3S Summer Camp 2016 has an intensive training program, but we think that you should also have fun during your stay. Our program makes sure that you have enough time to rest and enjoy the summer.

An ideal location

Champéry is a charming Swiss village where sport has long been a tradition.

The heart of the Alps

Champéry is located at 1,055 meters in a valley of the Swiss Alps, only 90 minutes away from Geneva. It lies at the feet of the famous Dents du Midi on which it offers a spectacular view. Its altitude and quiet atmosphere make it an ideal location for training during the summer.

A state-of-the-art complex

The Palladium de Champéry is Switzerland's National Center of Ice Sports. It is an eco-friendly, multi-sport complex that includes an Olympic-size ice rink with a comfortable seating area where parents can watch their kids and a large multi-purpose hall for off-ice training.

Recreational activities

Plenty of activites are available so you can have fun during your time off. You can go hiking or mountain biking directly from the village, or play tennis next to the rink. The Palladium also includes a swimming pool that camp participants can enjoy free-of-charge.

Weekly training program

The design of our training program is the product of years of experience participating and teaching in skating camps. It offers a perfect balance between on-ice and off-ice training so that you can be ideally prepared when the season begins.
