Youth Service offers


The Youth Service again has a wide range of offers for young Swiss Abroad this year.

Easter camp in Saas Grund (19 / 3 to 27 / 3 / 2016)

The snow-covered Swiss mountains are always an attraction and there is no shortage of them in Saas Fee! A week of winter sports in one of Switzerland’s best-known and largest ski resorts awaits you. In addition to skiing and snowboard lessons, we also provide a highly diverse fringe programme. There are still some places left!

German courses in Zurich (11 / 7 to 22 / 7 / 2016 or 8 / 8 to 19 / 8 / 2016) / French course in Biel (11 / 7 to 22 / 7 / 2016)

The German or French lessons take place in the morning. We then organise a wide range of activities during the afternoon. This allows you to gain a closer insight into Switzerland and its people and culture. You can organise your free time independently with your host family or new friends.

The OSA is celebrating its 100th anniversary and we’re joining in!

From 22 / 7 / 2016 (day of arrival with optional programme) to 7 / 8 / 2016, four spectacular anniversary camps are taking place, all of which have the same final destination – Berne. The groups will set off from four different national borders:

The great outdoors:

Do you love the countryside and feel at home outdoors? A two-week adventure in natural surroundings awaits you.

Culture, history and politics:

Interested in finding out about your roots? Here you will learn about Swiss history and its traditions.

Sightseeing challenge:

Do you find New York too big and Bangkok too hectic? No problem, you’ll love the Swiss cities and the related challenges.

Sport and leisure time:

Are you familiar with the traditional summer camps and looking forward to another one? Then this is the right place for you.

At the end, all four camp groups will meet up on the Bundesplatz to enjoy the anniversary celebrations and really let themselves go.
