    One of the challenges of living abroad is how to celebrate the important days from back home. We are proud to organize amazing events to commemorate the most important American holidays. 

    4th of July Picnic - Hamburgers, hot dogs, potato salad and all the trimmings. We spare no expense to make our little slice of heaven Red White and Blue for the day. 

    Halloween - put on your best costume and enjoy our annual Halloween gathering including prizes for best costumes.

    Thanksgiving - turkey, mash potatoes, and all the trimmings. Our annual Thanksgiving event is our best attended and gives you a real slice of home (along with that slice of pumpkin pie!)

    Families are at the core of our club and many of our events focus on all the wonderful activities Central Switzerland has for the whole family. Many are annual events but others come from the ideas of our membership or for special one-off events that are happening throughout our area. 

    Bowling Afternoon - our annual spring event takes us to a local bowling alley for an afternoon of fun

    Pumpkin Carving - just before Halloween we organize an event at a pumpkin farm outside of Lucerne. Pick your pumpkin, grab a knife and show us your creativity!

    Halloween Trick or Treat - put on your best costume and enjoy our annual Halloween gathering including prizes for best costumes.

    Thanksgiving - turkey, mash potatoes, and all the trimmings. Our annual Thanksgiving event is our best attended and gives you a real slice of home (along with that slice of pumpkin pie!)

    Santa Brunch - don't worry kids, when you are far away from home Santa can still find your chimney! Held at the beautiful Schweizerhof Hotel, our Santa Brunch is our unofficial start to our holiday celebrations.

    One of the most important things you can do when you move to a another country is to celebrate the local holidays and participate in the local customs. Thankfully Switzerland has many local customs which are fun and accessible for families. At our club we organize events celebrating both the local holidays and the natural beauty of our surroundings.

    Swiss National Day - August 1st is when all of Switzerland celebrates the founding of the original Swiss Confederation in 1291. We hold an annual dinner on a mountain restaurant with spectacular views of Lake Lucerne.

    Wild Blueberry Picking - for one of our best attended events we take you deep into the forest outside of Lucerne where there are wild blueberries as far as the eye can see. After the hard work of picking blueberries we have a family-style BBQ and picnic on-site. 

    Adult/Teen Hike - every year we choose a new place to organize a hike for our adult and teen members followed by an apéro or lunch. 

    Family Hike - not long after our Adult Hike we organize a family hike followed by a meal at a local restaurant.

    Family Outing - there are never a shortage of mountain resorts that are perfect for the whole family. We organize an event in late spring somewhere near Lucerne.
