Colony of Cluds


The commune of Payerne purchased Dr Marcel Croisier's property in Sainte-Croix in 1959. It was renovated in camp house that is currently used by schools from Payerne & environs for both in Summer camp and in Winter camp. Each summer 6- 12-year-old pupils go on holiday during 4 weeks at the camp house.

The chalet is located in the hamlet of the Cluds, between Sainte-Croix and Mauborget, in Bullet. At first, it was 20 children beds in dormitories and 10 for accompanying adults. In 1987, a new dormitories with 20 children beds, a room for camp counsellors, an equipped kitchen, a refectory for 50 people and new showers were installed.

This peace of haven in the mountain with a nice outdoor play area and a few parking spaces is strongly appreciated by users. The commune of Payerne delegated the maintenance, the operation and  the sound management of the house to a committee of seven volunteers by a convention in 1960 so that these tasks are assured.

The rent of the chalet is not only for schools but also for families, groups and companies. They usually rent "Les Cluds" for one day, one week-end or even one week (depend on availabilities).
