Financial support for Swiss families living abroad
The FYSA wants to enable all Swiss children living abroad to visit and experience Switzerland for themselves at least once, regardless of their family’s financial circumstances. To make this possible, the FYSA raises money every year on behalf of such children. The FYSA urges families who lack the necessary financial means to register for the camp and fill in the “Application form for reduction of the camp fees” – so that their children can also spend some time in Switzerland. For further details on the opportunities and conditions for price reductions, please contact the FYSA administrative office directly.
The FYSA looks forward to welcoming children who are keen to get to know and experience their homeland up close.
