Holidays and recreation for children and adolescents: special offers

Holidays and recreation for children and adolescents: special offers


From June to September, children between 4 and 16 can obtain a Basler-Ferienpass (Basel holiday pass). With the pass, they get many concessions on entry fees for swimming pools, museums etc., and can take part in many activities (such as painting, crafting, playing music). The Basler-Ferienpass can also be purchased by non-residents of Basel against a small extra fee.

Pro Juventute Holiday Pass

Pro Juventute also has a special Holiday Pass for children during the school holidays. Check for the programme in your area. 

Holiday camps

Summer and winter sport camps are offered by private institutions, churches as well as the cantonal sport departments. Please consult the addresses at the end of this chapter for more information.

Some municipalities also offer day camps. Contact your local administration (Gemeinde) for more information.
