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

15.11.2016

The Foundation for Young Swiss Abroad (FYSA) is celebrating its centenary in 2017. To mark this important anniversary, it has organised special activities, in addition to the usual ones, for summer 2017, such as a circus camp and a second Swiss Trip.

Programme

Participants in the summer camps held in July and August 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.

Camp language

Those taking part in our programmes come from all over the world and speak various languages. The FYSA therfore tries to provide its programmes in German, French, Italian, Spanish and English. The language at each camp is not determined by the language spoken at the camp venue.

Prices

The prices of the offers are set out in the list below. The Foundation for Young Swiss Abroad wishes to give all Swiss children abroad the opportunity to enjoy a holiday in Switzerland at least once if possible. We therefore offer the possibility of reduced camp rates. The relevant application form can be requested with the registration form.

Travel / meeting point

The meeting point is around lunchtime at Zurich airport.

Travel to Zurich airport and the return journey home from there are organised and paid for by parents.

Leaders

Experienced, well-trained and multilingual teams of leaders ensure that the two-week holiday camps are well organised and offer a wide variety of activities.

Registration

The exact details of the individual holiday camps and the registration form will be available from January 2017 at http://sjas.ch/en/camps/. We would also be pleased to post you our information brochure on request. The registration deadline is 15 March 2017.
