Cancelation of Summer Camps 2020

Due to the spread of the Coronavirus in Switzerland and around the world, we have reluctantly decided to cancel all our 2020 summer camps.


Indeed, social distancing cannot be guaranteed during our camps. The young Swiss Abroad are accommodated in communal places and are thus in close contact with each other. Moreover, even if the Coronavirus situation were to improve in Switzerland and Europe by this summer, participants would come from all over the world. This also includes regions that lag behind Europe in terms of the spread of the virus, with the risk of the presence of virus carriers at our camps. The safety of our participants and camp leaders is our top priority and we do not wish to take any risks that could endanger their health in any way. For these reasons, we will not be holding any summer camps this year.


The summer camps for young Swiss abroad will take place again in 2021.
