Free participation in ski camp for youngsters

600 children aged 13 and 14 will enjoy a winter sports week at Lenk in the Bernese Oberland free of charge from 2 to 9 January 2016. The 600 participants will also include 75 Swiss Abroad.

600 girls and boys from all over Switzerland will travel to Lenk in Simmental by special train on 2 January 2016. For the 75th time Swiss Ski and its partners are holding Switzerland’s largest winter sports camp. This time it is the turn of children born in 2001 and 2002.

Swiss children abroad wishing to take part in the ski camp for young people (Juskila) should be able to speak German, French or Italian. A draw will be held for the camp places. The prize includes participation in the camp, winter sports lessons, food and accommodation. Parents are nevertheless responsible for organising and funding the outbound and return journeys. The winners of the 75 places for the Swiss Abroad will be announced at the end of September.

The registration form for the young people’s ski camp will be included in the next issue of “Swiss Review”.
