Summer camps for children aged 8 to 14

23.01.2020 – Loïc Roth, FYSA

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 2020.

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. The demand for our Schweizer Reise (Swiss trip) offer has grown every year, so we are pleased to inform you that we will offer two such trips per year in the future.

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.

There are still some free places available in our holiday camps. 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.
