Nine different summer camps for children aged 8 to 14

20.03.2019 – Loïc Roth

Swiss children living abroad will have an opportunity to get to know Switzerland and its culture – and have a great time – at two-week summer camps between the end of June and the end of August 2019.

Run by the Foundation for Young Swiss Abroad (FYSA), these camps offer the chance to explore lakes, mountains, rivers and countryside on foot, and visit various sights and cities. Games, sports and workshops will also feature strongly among the daily activities.

Children at the camps will learn a lot about their home country – from traditional songs and cooking recipes, to typical Swiss games and sports. One of this year’s highlights is our music camp (27 July to 9 August) for children who are interested in music and want to learn more about Switzerland’s musical diversity. You don’t need to play an instrument to participate – you just need to enjoy music.

The camps all have one thing in common in that children of similar age from different countries meet and interact with each other across the linguistic, cultural and geographical divide. They are a chance to make new friends and share unforgettable memories. For a full schedule and further details as well as the relevant application form, visit Alternatively, we can send you a comprehensive overview of our camps by post on request.

The FYSA wants to enable all Swiss children living abroad to visit and experience Switzerland for themselves at least once. We therefore offer price reductions whenever these are justified. Simply fill in the “Application form for reduction of the camp fees”. We will also be happy to help if you require any further information.
