Free participation in young people’s ski camp!

Six hundred children aged 13 and 14 will enjoy a winter sports week free of charge from 1 to 8 January 2017 in Lenk in the Bernese Oberland for the 76th time. The 600 draw winners will include 25 Swiss Abroad.

A further chapter in the history of ski camps for young people (Juskila) will begin on 1 January 2017 when 600 girls and boys aged 13 and 14 will travel from all over Switzerland by special train to Lenk in Simmental. For the 76th time Swiss-Ski and its partners are holding Switzerland’s largest winter sports camp. This time it is the turn of children born in 2002 and 2003.

Anyone wishing to take part in the ski camp for young people (Juskila) must be able to speak at least one of Switzerland’s national languages (German, French or Italian). The camp places will be awarded through a prize draw, with the prize being participation in the camp including winter sports lessons, food and accommodation. Parents are responsible for organising and funding the outbound and return journeys. The 25 Swiss Abroad who have won a place will be announced at the end of September.
