Programme schedule

The programme consists of lectures and tutorials, visits of CERN's research facilites, hands-on workshops in S'Cool LAB as well as team research projects. The preliminary schedule can be found here.


The recommended age for this programme is 17-18 years at the time of the programme. Students have to be at least 16 years old when the summer camp starts (safety reasons). Only students who are still attending high school or finishing high school right before the camp are eligible for this programme.

Candidates should :

  • have a passion for and strong ability in physics and mathematics as reflected in high school course grades and extracurricular activities.
  • be currently in the final two years of secondary school and have not yet begun full-time studies at a post-secondary institution.
  • be very motivated to attend the summer camp and be able to enjoy the international atmosphere.


We want the Summer CAMP to be accessible to students from all backrounds. Therefore, the programme is free of charge for all selected candidates. Travel expenses, accomodation and meals will be covered by CERN. However, you will need some pocket money (we recommend approx. 100 CHF) for the free time and social activities during the weekends.

Language requirements

As the Summer CAMP will be conducted in English, applicants are expected to be fluent at speaking and writing in this language. We will only consider applications in English.
