Summer Camps 2022 Jeunesse Action Biblique!
Register online for the jabsuisseromande.ch! Camps, activities, training courses and many other surprises are included in the downloadable brochure. The aim of the JAB since 1943 has been to provide young people with physical (sports, hiking, camping), social (games) and spiritual fulfillment (bible studies and other spiritual activities).
The camps take place on several sites depending on the age of the campers: Arzier, Isenfluh, Tenero and Contamines (France). JAB is a non profit association and thanks to the help of numerous volunteers we are able to offer the camps at a very low and affordable price starting at 300Fr. Additional discounts are offered for people in need and first time JAB campers. Join the fun with us this summer!
The JAB Suisse Romande offers activities for children and teenagers throughout the year. It depends directly on the Association of Evangelical Churches of Swiss Biblical Action.

18 At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? 2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, 3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. 4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 5 And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.
