Anniversary camp marking 100 years of the OSA (22.7 to 7.8.2016)

Are you interested in Swiss history, politics and culture? Then this is the right camp for you! There are still a few places available for the “culture, history and politics” anniversary camp. The journey of discovery will last for two weeks, from 22 July to 7 August, and take you from Estavayer-le-Lac over the Jura to Berne. En route, you’ll discover more about the cultural diversity of your second homeland. Sign up now!

Language courses in German (8.8 to 19.8.2016) and French (22.7 to 7.8.2016)

Would you like to learn a national language? Three to four language lessons take place in the mornings, while a varied fringe programme is organised for the afternoons. If you would prefer to focus solely on language learning, you can take an intensive course (eight hours a day). You will live with a host family during your stay.

  • French course in Biel (22.7 to 7.8.2016)
  • German course in Zurich (8.8 to 19.8.2016)

Discover Switzerland (available throughout the year)

Would you like to travel around Switzerland on your own? Our “Discover Switzerland” offer presents a great opportunity to do so. You will stay with a Swiss host family for one to two weeks. We would be pleased to put together a diverse programme of day trips in line with your requirements. The Swiss Transfer Pass will allow you to move freely around Switzerland.
