Summer camps for 8 to 14-year-olds

11.12.2014

Are you between 8 and 14 years of age? Would you like to spend 14 days in Switzerland and get to know your homeland better? Then sign up for one of the holiday camps organised by the Foundation for Young Swiss Abroad (FYSA) that are held during July and August. 

Interacting with participants from other countries beyond linguistic, cultural and national boundaries is a unique opportunity to make new friendships and enjoy unforgettable experiences. 

Camp language

Participants come from all over the world and speak different languages (E, G, F, S, I). The team of leaders conduct the programmes in English, German and French. The camp language is not dictated by the language spoken in the camp’s location.

Costs

The costs are set out in the list below. The camp fees can be reduced in certain circumstances. An application form may be requested with the registration form.

Travel/meeting point

The meeting point is around lunchtime at Zurich airport. Travel to Zurich airport and the return journey home from there are organised and paid for by parents.

Registration

Full details of the individual holiday camps and the registration form will be available from January 2015 at www.sjas.ch. We would also be pleased to post you our information brochure on request. The registration deadline is 15 March 2015.
