New Year ski camp in Sedrun from 27 December 2014 to 5 January 2015

A highly varied programme awaits you in the mountains of Grisons. In addition to skiing or snowboarding lessons in small groups and a diverse fringe programme (snowblading, ski racing, hiking by torchlight, ball sports, climbing, ice skating, dancing, swimming and workshops, etc.), which will provide you with physical challenges, there is also time to make and enjoy new friendships. Start 2015 in the company of other young Swiss Abroad in the Swiss mountains! You will be looked after by a well-trained and highly motivated team of leaders.

Language course in Berne from 5 to 16 January 2015

You will also take part in outdoor activities, such as snowshoeing, airboarding, tobogganing, ice skating and much more besides.

Easter camp in Davos from 4 to 12 April 2015

Surrounded by mountains and 300 kilometres of piste spread across 85 runs, Davos-Klosters is one of the largest snow sport regions in the Alps.
