Welcome to Switzerland

Fancy to do sports? Sightseeing? Get to know Switzerland? Learn one of the offical languages? Or discover swiss politics? No problem! We offer something for everyone.


Young Swiss from all over the world enjoy the exciting programmes prepared by the Organisation of the Swiss Abroad (OSA). You too can have an unforgettable holiday or select one of our training schemes in your second homeland. Choose from a whole range of opportunities:sports, languages, training, making friends, travel, parties, etc.


In summer, the OSA offers young Swiss from abroad lasting experiences ranging from spectacular mountain scenery to discovering historic towns and refreshing baths in natural spa water! The OSA provides you with interesting, up-to-date information on Swiss culture, geography,

history, politics and society. So why not take advantage of this unique opportunity to discover your roots!


You can go in for the sports of your choice at our OSA camps. Experienced, qualified instructors will be there for you. At the same time

as the sports activities, you get involved in a typical Swiss topic. During the camps you can work on exciting projects involving films, media, music and artistic creation. You’ll meet lots of young people with interesting backgrounds and form long-lasting trans-frontier friendships.
