Apply to be a camper

Any person between 9 and 17 years of age can apply to be a camper at an LPC camp.

Apply as a camper
Campers enjoy some time together in the cosy room at Freedom, New Hampshire, in 2007.

Camps are usually divided into one of two age groups: camps for Younger Kids between 9 and 14 years of age and camps for Older Kids between 14 and 17 years of age. Depending on the size and availability of the campsite, camps can consist of as few as 14-16 campers or as many as 34-36 campers. They can range anywhere from two to six weeks in duration, and are held in several different countries each summer. There is usually a mixture of at least eight different nationalities in each camp. All campers are expected to attend the camp for its entire duration, as LPC places great emphasis on building the community aspect of the camper and counselor group. Our overview of Life in Camp contains further details on what LPC expects from campers and what campers should expect from LPC.

If you are a parent/guardian looking to submit a camper application for your child, click on the button below. It will take you to the login page of our online platform, where you will be asked to create an account. If you have applied to LPC before, once you have created an account, most of your information will be filled in automatically: it is feeding in from the LPC database. Please review and update any information as necessary!

Please note that applications are due December 1st. Early applications are very welcome! Camps are organized during LPC’s annual “Christmas Conference,” which is held at the end of each year in the Ecole d’Humanité, Hasliberg-Goldern, Switzerland.

TRANSLATIONS: Unfortunately, LPC does not control translations on our host software, which operates in English. If you need to apply in a language other than English, the simplest way to do so is by opening the registration link on Google Chrome and using its translate button to translate all pages. If this solution does not work for you, please contact the LPC Office at, requesting to receive a translated application form by email – available in Italian, French or German.
