The 6th Zarmanazan Summer Camp will be held at the Carlina Inn, located in the town of La Chapelle-d’Abondance in the French Alps.
La Carlina is located a few miles from the Swiss Alps (Canton du Valais). The village of La Chapelle-d’Abondance is about 70 km (43,5 miles) from the Geneva International Airport, and about 30 km (18,6 miles) from the French towns of Thonon-les-bains and Evian-les-Bain, on the shores of Lake Léman.
The Carlina is an establishment approved by the French ministry in charge of lodging for minors and is equipped with multiple dormitories, many activity rooms, a professional kitchen, and ample private outdoor space.
