After forty years of service on the Board of the Foundation le Camp - 26 of which as President - Mr. Pierre-André Lautenschlager, from Prêles, handed over his mandate to Mr. Philippe André, from Yens, on the occasion of the General Assembly held on Saturday 22nd August last.

During his forty years of commitment, Mr. Lautenschlager has given the meeting, training and holiday centre overlooking Lake Neuchâtel its current face as well as an organisation that enables it to look to the future with serenity, at the service of its guests and supported by a team of competent and motivated staff.

An architect by profession, Mr Philippe André took a leading role in the infratstructural transformations. Determined to continue in the footsteps of his predecessor, the new president is already conducting studies for the refurbishment of a dormitory building to make it a modern reception area, suitable for groups of up to 25 participants.

A party for former board members, staff, friends and relatives followed the formal deliberations, allowing a convivial farewell to the outgoing president and three other board members.

After a year's break, the traditional Le Camp Foundation Christmas Market will be back in operation, to the delight of all.

The Christmas market did not take place in 2019, to the regret of many of our stakeholders. This is why the Foundation Le Camp is pleased to announce that its Christmas Market will resume in 2020, and invites all interested exhibitors to register.

This year 2020, the market will take place on the weekend of December 19th and 20th, and will include some thirty stands.

These will be set up on Thursday 17 all day long and on Friday 18 in the morning, by our teams, in the main building and in the Rotonde.

Exhibitors are invited to set up their stands from Friday afternoon 18th, so that everything is ready for the opening of the Christmas Market on Saturday morning, December 19th, 2020. 

The Fondation Le Camp will be offering both visitors and exhibitors a catering service on the festive theme of Christmas.

The price for the whole weekend is CHF 100.00 per stand (only one stand size available), to be paid after confirmation of registration.
