The not to miss place for kids art workshops - Le CHALET DU PETIT PRINCE in Champel

Today I would like to share with you a place that is a true hidden gem in Geneva and one of my kid's favorite ones.: Le Chalet du Petit Prince in Route de Bout Du Monde 6 in Champel.
This incredible place is a very  ancient Villa , Chalet style , surrounded by a big wild park in the  heart of Champel. The place hosts an association that ,with the supports of the City of Geneva, organizes all types of activities and workshops for kids from 4 till 12 years old, I counted about 22 different types workshops  for the period September 2014  June 2015  .
Workshops take place with weekly frequency, after school classes, normally in the afternoon during the week days and during the the full day on Wednesdays ,
Workshops themes are for example Mosaic, Origami, Theater, Dance , Drawing, Pottery, Making jewels, Building puppets , learning the art of Clowns and  many others.
Prices for the courses are very reasonable, about 160 CHF for 3 month (about 12 lessons),  the watch out is that the workshops are in French and they are open only to a maximum of 6-8 kids  each, so they easily get full
The best is to call the Chalet directly and ask which workshops have still places available.

If your kid attends one of the workshops , then you are also eligible to organize your kid's  birthday there , this beautiful Chalet can be rented on Saturdays for about 50 CHF + a depot that will be refunded once you give the keys back.
I organized at least 3 of my son's birthdays there and all of these have been unforgettable moments for him and his friends.
