Experience politics and culture up close and personal – just right for you

20.03.2019 – OSA

Are you interested in Swiss politics? Would you like to experience a fantastic cultural and sports programme in your native country? If so, our Politics and Culture Camp is the right place for you.

In the run-up to the Swiss Abroad Congress in Montreux, a two-week summer youth camp will be held with a political and cultural focus on the topic of “What will tomorrow’s world hold?” and the 2019 parliamentary elections. During this camp, you will experience Swiss politics up close – explained simply, concisely and objectively. In addition, this summer camp is focused on your native country and all it has to offer, including lovely mountain landscapes, impressive historic cities and a great deal of culture.

You will spend two weeks with other young Swiss expatriates, overnighting at youth hostels, campgrounds, farms and even under the stars around a campfire. Whether you find yourself exploring Switzerland by train, bicycle or hiking through the mountains, it will definitely be a memorable time.

The camp costs 1,030 Swiss francs. This includes the programme, accommodation, food, excursions and travel. It will be held from 3 to 18 August 2019 and is designed for young Swiss expatriates aged 15 to 21. Are you eager for a summer full of variety in Switzerland? If so, register today!
