The Organisation of the Swiss Abroad, gives young Swiss Abroad the opportunity to get to know their home country better. Participation in our holiday and educational programmes helps to revitalise and strengthen the ties that Swiss Abroad have with each other and with Switzerland.
In our programmes, young people get to know Switzerland and discover mountains, towns, lakes, sights and various regions of our country. You will have the chance to find out a lot of interesting information about Switzerland and its people. In our camps, the focus is on community and fun. You can engage in various sport and leisure activities, let your creativity run wild and make friends with other young people from around the world.
For the duration of the camps, young people stay in simple but well-equipped houses, youth hostels or on campsites during summer time. Meals are eaten together and life on a summer camp also means that the young people help with household chores, for example by drying dishes or cleaning rooms.
Each summer camp is organised and run by an experienced camp leader who is also supported by a kitchen team and several co-leaders. This team is fully committed to supporting the participants from morning until night. The leaders organise the activities and are always there to assist the participants. The team members work with the young people during their holidays for a small wage.
Participants in the offers for young Swiss Abroad can enjoy an interesting stay in Switzerland at a reasonable price. They get to know their country and people, and have fun with others of the same age from all around the world.
Welcome to Switzerland!
