Let’s go to JUSKILA!
Six hundred 13-14-year-olds will attend a week-long snow sports camp in Lenk in the Bernese Oberland from 2 to 8 January 2020, marking the 79th edition of the event. The 600 draw winners will include 25 Swiss Abroad.
A further chapter in the history of JUSKILA will begin on 2 January 2020 when 600 boys and girls aged 13 and 14 travel from all over Switzerland by special train to Lenk in Simmental. It is the 79th time that Swiss Ski and its partners are holding the largest snow sports camp in Switzerland. This time it is the turn of children born in 2005 and 2006.
Swiss children abroad who would like to take part in the winter camp for young people (JUSKILA) must be able to communicate in at least one of Switzerland’s three national languages (German, French or Italian). A draw will be held for the camp spots. The prize includes participation in the camp, including snow sports lessons, food and accommodation. Parents are responsible for organising and funding the outbound and return journeys. The winners of the 25 places for the Swiss Abroad will be announced at the end of September.
