Free participation in young people’s ski camp!

600 children aged between 13 and 14 will enjoy a winter sports week free of charge from 2 to 9 January 2016 in Lenk in the Bernese Oberland – for the 75th time. The 600 draw winners will also include 75 Swiss Abroad in the anniversary year.

The ski camp for young people is taking place once again. 600 girls and boys aged 13 and 14 from all over Switzerland will travel to Lenk in Simmental by special train on 2 January 2016. For the 75th time, Swiss-Ski (the Swiss skiing association) and its partners are sending out invitations to Switzerland’s biggest winter sports camp. As representatives of Switzerland’s diaspora, Swiss children abroad can again take part in the young people’s ski camp this year. To mark the 75th anniversary, 75 instead of the usual 25 places will be awarded to Swiss children abroad in the prize draw. Anyone born in 2001 or 2002 can register for the draw by completing the form below. The registration deadline is 15 September 2015.

Anyone wishing to take part in the ski camp for young people (Juskila) should at least be able to speak German, French or Italian. The draw prize is participation in the camp including winter sports lessons, food and accommodation. Parents are responsible for organising and funding the outbound and return journeys. The Foundation for Young Swiss Abroad (FYSA) has set up a fund to provide financial assistance with travel costs for Swiss families abroad put off registering for financial reasons.

The winners of the 75 places for the Swiss Abroad will be announced at the end of September.
