English Summer Camp
Located in Sappada, Camp Marmot has been welcoming campers of all ages to participate in a wide variety of programs and activities since 2016. We have a high staff to camper ratio that ensures every camper at Camp Marmot has an amazing and unique camp experience in a safe and fun atmosphere. We are a traditional English Summer Camp with an integration of Italian. Italian language is merged into play activities. We carry a legacy of rituals - both new and old - that are unique to Camp Marmot and makes the time with us so enjoyable and enriching for our campers.
Arts & Crafts Center
Young artists need a space to dream, to create, to inspire, and to be inspired. At Camp Marmot, we understand this well, which is why we provide this space for our campers. All artistic expression is allowed in this minuscule Art Center where people come and create their art freely.

Meet the Camp Staff
Hello everyone! I'm Roisin. I am 31 years old and from just outside Glasgow, Scotland. I have over 10 years of experience working with children of various ages from 6 months to - 12 years old. My employment background is in sports education as a multi-sports coach and has been involved in many programs over the years. They are just too fun to not get involved in. For the past 2 years, I have been ‘Sailing the Seven Seas' onboard cruise ships working as a Youth Staff, which has been nothing short of life-changing. For me, working with children is such a rewarding & enriching experience, and all I can say is I am super excited to uncover the treasures of the Dolomites and create special memories and laughs with the children and staff involved in Camp Marmot.
Hi! I’m Holly. I am 26 years old and from Ireland. I am a trained pharmacist but have always had a passion for working with kids! Inbetween my pharmacy career I have worked at summer camps all over Ireland and onboard cruise ships in America and Australia. I am also a lifeguard and swim teacher and have all my CPR, first aid, and anaphylaxis training. I love being outdoors and I am so excited to spend the summer at Camp Marmont having fun with everyone!
Founder and Owner of Camp Marmot
With over 20 years of experience in the childcare sector and after 3 wonderful summers working as a camp counselor in upstate New York America, I needed to bring my memory to life by setting my own summer camp up in this beautiful hometown of my partner, Max. Rifugio Piani Del Cristo was founded in 1973 and has been in the family ever since. The Rifugio is where we base the camp and also where our overnight campers sleep.
The experience is aged for children from 3 years to 12 years old to learn English through play.
What better place to start!
With 3 children of my own, I truly understand those parents who need a little break in life now and then, and what better way to enjoy a great hike or enjoy the delights of Sappada whilst you know your children are having just as much fun !!!
My children cannot wait for the summer and look forward to meeting all of their new friends.
See you all soon .....
Rifugio Piani del Cristo
The main part of the camp is hidden away in this little gem.
The children sleep either in one of our rooms or in our new baitas.
They also have breakfast and dinner here and hidden behind the Rifugio we have lunch which is either hot, cold, or a bbq.
We also have our famous marque which is full of surprises.
Camp Marmot has their own desk at the caravan park at Alp Stube for the day campers to subscribe to our service. We meet here every morning/afternoon and at the end of the day.
The children also enjoy the delights of the Adventure park at least once a week to experience fun in the woods and a stop for cheeky ice cream or on cold days a hot chocolate.
Piani Del Luzza
We use the facilities at Piani Del Luzza throughout the week and enjoy canoeing and swimming here at the center.
The center offers a great accommodation service throughout the winter season.
We can’t wait for your child to join us at Camp Marmot! Whether they’re returning campers or coming for the first time, you’ll find all the information and forms you need on this page. Feel free to send us your questions.
