New events in 2021: online offers to accompany the traditional summer and winter camps

04.02.2021 – Marie Bloch, Youth service

This year, the Organisation of the Swiss Abroad, under the name SwissCommunity, is organising a summer camp and a winter camp, and for the first time will be providing online offers for young Swiss Abroad aged between 15 and 25.

Due to the global health situation (Covid-19 pandemic), the Organisation of the Swiss Abroad has taken the difficult decision to reduce the number of camps originally planned for 2021. Just two camps will be organised: one in the Vaud Alps and one in the Pennine Alps. The summer camp will take place from 10 to 23 July 2021 in Château-d’Oex and the winter camp will be from 27 December 2021 to 5 January 2022 in Grächen. Of course, the Organisation of the Swiss Abroad is closely monitoring the evolution of the pandemic in the world. Any change which may impact the organisation of the camps will be announced on the website > Youth offers.

Given the uncertainty surrounding the organisation of the camps, the Organisation of the Swiss Abroad is pleased to be able to offer young Swiss living abroad an alternative. For the first time, the Organisation of the Swiss Abroad will be providing online offers, combining learning, fun and new encounters. All offers can be found at > Youth offers.
