Free participation in young people’s ski camp!

Six hundred children aged 13–14 will enjoy a winter sports week free of charge in Lenk in the Bernese Oberland on 2–8 January 2018 for the 77th time. The 600 winners of the prize draw will include 25 Swiss Abroad.

A further chapter in the history of ski camps for young people (Juskila) will begin on 2 January 2018, when 600 girls and boys aged 13 and 14 will travel from all over Switzerland to Lenk in Simmental by special train. For the 77th time, Swiss-Ski and its partners are holding Switzerland’s largest winter sports camp. This time it is the turn of children born in 2002 and 2003.

Anyone wishing to take part in the ski camp for young people (Juskila) must be able to speak at least one of Switzerland’s three national languages (German, French or Italian). The camp places will be awarded through a prize draw, with the prize being participation in the camp that includes winter sports lessons, food and accommodation. Parents are responsible for organising and funding the outbound and return journeys. The 25 Swiss Abroad who have won a place will be announced at the end of September.
