FYSA – summer camps for children aged 8 to 14

From the end of June until the end of August, Swiss children abroad can have a fantastic time while also discovering Switzerland and its culture at two-week summer camps with 36 to 42 other children from all over the world.

At the camps run by the Foundation for Young Swiss Abroad, participants will visit attractions, discover lakes, mountains, rivers and landscapes on short hikes, and explore cities. Some days will also be spent at the camp base where participants will enjoy games, sporting activities and various workshops.

They will also, of course, 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.

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 for our forthcoming holiday camps. Full details and the registration form can be found at www.sjas.ch/en/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 wishes 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. We would be pleased to provide you with further information.
