We will announce who has won a place on the camp at the end of September.

PS: The Foundation for Young Swiss Abroad (FYSA) will start hosting winter camps again in the 2022–23 winter season. For scheduling reasons, there will be no FYSA winter camps in the 2021–22 winter season. The timing of the next winter holidays is unfavourable and would result in the winter camp being shorter than usual.
