Centenary celebrations of the Foundation for Young Swiss Abroad (FYSA): Summer camps for children aged 8 to 14

The anniversary summer of the Foundation for Young Swiss Abroad will take place from the end of June to the end of August 2017. Swiss children abroad can have a fantastic time while also discovering Switzerland and its culture at two-week summer camps together with between 30 and 50 other children from all over the world.

Attractions are visited, lakes, mountains, rivers and landscapes are discovered on short hikes and cities are explored at the camps run by the Foundation for Young Swiss Abroad. Some days are spent at the camp base where the group enjoy games, sporting activities and various workshops. Participants also have the opportunity to gain fascinating insights into Switzerland. We look at the Swiss languages, Swiss songs, Swiss recipes and typically Swiss games and sports, for example.

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

There are still a few places available at our holiday camps. The exact details and the registration form can be found at www.sjas.ch/en (section: Camps). We would also be pleased to send you our information brochure with an overview of the offers available by post on request.

The Foundation for Young Swiss Abroad would like to give all Swiss children abroad the opportunity to discover Switzerland in this way on at least one occasion. We can therefore offer reduced rates in justified cases. The required form can be requested on the registration form. The FYSA office would be pleased to provide you with further information.
