The 2021 Tasting Meal is reschedulded
The 2021 Tasting Meal, originally scheduled for the 20th of February 2021, will be moved to March or April 2021.
Due to the measures taken by the Federal Council with regard to the Corona virus, the Tasting Meal that we had planned for the 20th of February 2021 will unfortunately not be able to take place on that date.
The aim of this meal is to introduce our future guests for the coming year as well as any interested gourmet to the dishes and novelties that we have à la carte, in order to help them in their menu planning or simply to spend a gourmet moment.
The event will be rescheduled as soon as the health situation is more relaxed and will allow more people to gather, if possible before the start of the high season (May).
The new date will be announced on our website as soon as it is known.
Happy holiday season !
Le Camp Foundation wishes everyone a happy holiday season
A special year, very different from the others, full of uncertainties and difficulties to overcome.
A year in which we had to constantly reinvent ourselves, find solutions, adapt, sometimes give up.
As was the case with our Christmas Market 2020, which we regrettably had to cancel because of the health situation and the measures taken by the Confederation. And yet, what a wonderful enthusiasm this market has generated among the region's craftsmen and craftswomen! Le Camp Foundation was able to count on a very large and talented number of registrations from artisans who not only attended, but also showed a heart-warming enthusiasm. We look forward to planning an upcoming market and bringing them all together as soon as the location permits.
While it has its share of challenges, 2020 was above all a magnificent year of mutual aid, both nationally and locally, during which Fondation Le Camp had the immense opportunity to (re)discover the solidarity of its hosts, as well as the generosity and support of its Friends and partners, whom it sincerely thanks.
We therefore wish everyone a wonderful holiday season, a wonderful New Year's Eve and a healthy and happy start to 2021. Take care of each other, and all the best to everyone!
Seminars and company meals with distance maintenance
Special Covid-19: Seminar and company meals in compliance with sanitary measures
The Le Camp Foundation has been able to adapt to the various health restrictions that have affected Switzerland recently, following the evolution of the Covid-19 pandemic.
On the strength of its experience and its protection concept, it is now able to accommodate groups of up to 40 people for full seminar days, while respecting the distances of 1m50.
For this purpose, our conference rooms are installed as shown in the picture, with the chairs spaced 1m50 apart.
During the meal, the participants in the seminar day are placed at both ends of a 1m90 long table, with the tables spaced 1m50 apart.
Disinfectant is available throughout the day in all seminar rooms, which are themselves regularly disinfected.
Lists of participants are obligatory and allow, if necessary, a very quick tracing.
Wearing a mask is not obligatory within the same group of guests, but is strongly recommended.
The Fondation Le Camp thus wishes to offer a quality solution, suitable for companies who wish to maintain their end-of-year meals or organise training or seminar days.
Photoshooting Inspiration Wedding at Le Camp Foundation
On 22 August 2020, Le Camp Foundation was delighted to welcome its first "photoshooting - wedding inspiration" in the company of its favourite wedding providers.
On this wonderful day, many of the region's wedding providers, who usually collaborate with the Le Camp Foundation, got together to give free rein to their talent:
- Mademoiselle C at Vaumarcus, Wedding planer, decorator and stationery shop
- History of Fleurs à Peseux for flowers
- Colayco à Peseux for wedding rings and jewels
- Timotee Hair and Make-up in Neuchâtel
- Confiserie Schmid SA in Neuchâtel for the cake
- Douce Apparence à Cormondrèche (D&A nail care and make-up) for the dress
- VR Photography Virginie and Raphaël Nobs in Moutier for the photos
- Aurélie and François, future bride and groom and models
After a successful beauty makeover by Timotée in the Zwingli house and after putting on the magnificent dress of Douce Apparence and the splendid jewellery of Colayco, the bride and groom were photographed from all angles by our talented photographer, Raphaël. Whether near the main building, on the green amphitheatre, in the Rotunda or in the middle of the vineyards, our bride and groom found themselves in the midst of the magnificent decorations created by Mademoiselle C and Histoire de Fleurs especially for the occasion. They even had the chance to taste the wonderful wedding cake made by Confiserie Schmid.
The photos were recently sent to us and the Fondation Le Camp is delighted to share the result, which can be viewed on our instagram account or our facebook page.
