Winter camps for children and teenagers

25.05.2020 – Jugenddienst der Auslandschweizer-Organisation & Stiftung für junge Auslandschweizer (SJAS)

We will not be offering any winter camps for children and teenagers over the next two winter seasons (202 0–21 and 2021–22). This is mainly down to the current leap year and consequently shorter holiday season for our volunteer camp leaders as well as our decision not to offer any camps of a duration of less than ten days. We intend to start hosting winter camps again in the 2022–23 winter season.

JUSKILA 2021 is taking place

Even though the Youth Service and the FYSA have put their own winter camps temporarily on hold, our cooperation with the popular JUSKILA Swiss Ski youth ski camp continues. The next JUSKILA is scheduled for 2 to 8 January 2021 in Lenk in the Bernese Oberland. Some 600 teenagers aged 13 to 14 will take part, including 25 teenagers from the “Fifth Switzerland”.

Those wishing to attend JUSKILA must be able to speak at least one of Switzerland’s three national languages – German, French or Italian. Lots will be drawn to allocate places at the prices shown below, which cover winter sports coaching, food and accommodation. Parents are responsible for organising and paying for their children’s outward and return journey. Children born in 2006 and 2007 are eligible to take part in the draw. We will announce who has won a place on the camp at the end of September.


Train tickets for travel within Switzerland; food; accommodation; ski pass; winter sports coaching: CHF 120.–

Hire of winter sports gear, skis, poles and ski boots: CHF 50.–

Or: Hire of snowboard and snowboard boots: CHF 150.–
