Take advantage of the OSA’s offers for young people – register now!

If you’ve never been to one of the Youth Service’s winter camps, then you’ve really missed out. Young Swiss Abroad from all over the world spend 10 days under the same roof and enjoy themselves on the slopes of the Swiss Alps and at the camp base. You’ll get to know all sorts of new people.

What do you all have in common? Switzerland. Our skiing and snowboard instructors will show you the latest techniques or teach you how to ski or snowboard. This is an incredible and unique experience. The programme of enjoyable camp activities is rich in variety and great fun. And of course there’ll be a fantastic camp party, too.

Discover Switzerland (two weeks – available at any time)

In addition to the winter camps, we can also provide you with the opportunity to explore Switzerland on your own. We will arrange your stay with a friendly host family and put together an itinerary based on your interests. You’ll embark on a new journey of discovery every day, visiting famous and lesser known places. Your personal Swiss Travel Pass will allow you to use the train, bus, tram or boat and can also be used as a museum pass.
