Summer camps for 8 to 14-year-olds

Are you between 8 and 14 years of age? Would you like to spend 14 days in Switzerland getting to know your homeland better? Then sign up for a holiday camp run by the Foundation for Young Swiss Abroad.

Programme

We organise summer holiday camps in the most beautiful regions of Switzerland during the months of July and August. Participants in our camps visit attractions, discover lakes, mountains, rivers and wonderful scenery on short hikes and sometimes visit cities. Some days are also spent at the camp base, where we enjoy games, sporting activities and various workshops.

The interaction with participants from other countries and the exchange across linguistic, cultural and national boundaries presents a unique opportunity to make new friends and enjoy some unforgettable moments.

Camp language

The people who take advantage of our offers come from all over the world and therefore speak different languages, such as German, French, English, Spanish and Italian. The leaders run the programmes in German, French and English. The language at each camp is not determined by the language spoken at the camp venue.

Prices

The prices of the offers are set out in the list below. The Foundation for Young Swiss Abroad wishes to give all Swiss children abroad the opportunity to enjoy a holiday in Switzerland at least once if possible. We therefore offer the possibility of reduced camp rates. The relevant application form can be requested with the registration form.

Travel/meeting point

The meeting point is around lunchtime at Zurich Airport.  Travel to Zurich Airport and the return journey home from there are organised and paid by the parents.

Registration

The exact details of the individual holiday camps and the registration form will be available from January 2015 at www.sjas.ch. We would also be pleased to post you our information brochure on request. The registration deadline is 15 March 2015.
