LimeTree Camp and LimeTree@Schule are project weeks for children ages 9 – 12. They combine learning and awareness about healthy and sustainable nutrition, with cooking, sports and nature.
For a week, we travel with children the world of food and sports. We explore with science-based experiments and
group work the role food plays in our health and the environment.
Children will learn about different eating cultures, cook delicious and varied meals with professional chefs from the restaurant tibits and do sports in the LimeTree Camp from selected countries in Africa, Asia, Europe and South America.
We look forward to seeing you soon!

Our food choices and food preparation methods have a significant impact on our bodies and the world. What we eat and how we eat not only influence our health and well-being, but also affect the environment's biodiversity, food waste and CO2 emissions.
Healthy and sustainable nutrition is whenever possible, seasonal and regional, and includes plenty of plant-based and whole-grain foods.
Balanced nutrition from well-prepared, nutrient-rich meals, made with fresh ingredients, is the basis of good health. Healthy eating habits -- daily choosing foods and drinks smartly -- form a cornerstone already set in childhood. Micronutrients such as vitamins, trace elements and fibers are essential parts of healthy nutrition. To feel fully balanced, our bodies also need movement and relaxation.
Our food system is global. Increasingly more of our natural resources are used to produce, process and distribute food. In Switzerland and Europe food production alone causes about 30% of all CO2 emissions. Sustainable food choices can significantly contribute to decreasing environmental damage and climate change.
