JUSKILA camp at Lenk free of charge

The ski camp for children will take place from 2 to 9 January 2015. Twenty Swiss children living abroad, 13 and 14 years old, can attend free of charge.

Every year the Swiss-Ski association organises a ski camp at Lenk for 600 Swiss children born in 2000 and 2001, including twenty Swiss children living abroad. To take part in the Juskila trip, Swiss children living abroad must be able to communicate in at least one of the three Swiss national languages (German, French or Italian). The places for Swiss abroad are decided by a draw. Those who win a place do not have to pay for the camp itself ­(winter sports coaching, food and accommodation). Parents will be responsible for organising and financing travel to and from the camp. Applicants will be informed of the outcome of the draw at the end of ­October. 

Sign up for the draw now, using the registration form below.
