To ensure lifelong preservation of its heritage, expand guest accommodation, and increase the quality of comfort to meet modern standards, Le Camp Foundation pursues a continuous investment policy in order to maintain and improve its infrastructure.

Although it has a solid basis, the operation of Le Camp does not enable it to release all the financial resources required for these renovations. Le Camp Foundation is therefore appealing to generous sponsors from companies, institutions, and private donors to meet these needs.

  • Audio induction loop

    Audio induction loop

    A hearing loop (sometimes called an audio induction loop) is a special type of sound system for use by people with hearing aids. The hearing loop provides a magnetic, wireless signal that is picked up by the hearing aid when it is set to ‘T’ (Telecoil) setting, if the device is equipped with this option.

    That way, deaf people or people with difficulties to hear are able to hear music transmitted through a PA / hi-fi system, conferences, music concert or seminars directly through their hearing aids, without the interference of surrounding noises.

    At Le Camp, our seminar and banquet halls "René Guisan" and "Charles Béguin", located upstairs of our "Old Main" (Bâtiment Principal), are equipped with these kind of Audio induction loops for deaf or hearing impaired persons. As soon as the halls very own audio material is used, the induction loops are automatically activated. This equippement was certified and validated last february by the Forum Ecoute, which is an association for deaf and hearing impaired persons in french speaking part of Switzerland.

    The hearing loop consists of the device that sends the signal (our "in house" audio system); an amplifier which processes the signal which is then sent through the final piece; the loop cable, a copper wire placed in the floor plate around the perimeter of the halls to act as an antenna that radiates the magnetic signal to the hearing aid. The position which guarantees the best receiving and hearing is the centre of this loop.

    After the installation of different devices and aids for handicapped people, Le Camp is proud to be from now on equitable equipped to receive, host and entertain deaf and hearing impaired people.

  • Marcus Junior : the new Le Camp mascot

    Marcus Junior : the new Le Camp mascot

    In the guise of a kite and since the start of this century, our mascot Marcus has escorted us or made his presence felt on all our documentation, pathways and on room signage.

    He even stole the limelight during the entertainment at the inauguration party for our renovated Main Building in September 2017.

    But, like us all, Marcus has reached the age where he is making way for his son (or grandson?): Marcus Junior.

    Although evidently fresher, younger, and more dynamic than his father, Marcus Junior still retains a family likeness and cannot hide his lineage. This has enabled a smooth transition, ensuring the continuity of our image while demonstrating Le Camp's devotion to staying modern and with the times.

    What is Marcus worth for us? Absolutely everything! And you could be forgiven for thinking two Marcus' are better than one, but Junior, with his contemporary look, will easily assume the reins of his honourable predecessor.
