About ya! Camps
EXPERIENCE & CONCEPTION - 70 years and yet ahead of its time
For 70 years, young austria has been intensively involved in children's and youth travel. We do not see ourselves as educators, but provide the framework for personal growth, experiences and wonderful vacations - in a unique nature and safe environment!
For us, it is important to offer children and young people the opportunity to have unforced experiences, to master athletic challenges, to discover the breathtaking Austrian nature and mountain world and to develop their individual personalities. We promote talents, motivate, supervise and accompany.
At many of our camps, you will see this sign. This means that camp participants from around the world are taking part. In 2018, mor than 2,500 children and youths from over 50 countries were at our camps. Friendships that span over continents were created. Language skills are benefited, cultural stereotypesare re-arranged and fear of contact is broken down. An important part of the personal development of young people.
QUALITY OF SUPERVISION – Who actually looks after your child?
Only at young austria camps will you find a supervisor to child ratio of 1 to 8. For our younger guests, it’s even 1 supervisor for 5 children. That means that we can look after the participants individual needs. Unique at summer camps in Austria. Our supervisors are carefully handpicked. Only those who complete the multi-stage selection process, the personal interview and the extensive training seminar are allowed to work at a young austria camp. There is an experienced leader at every camp, who has already been at several camps and is in close contact with our office in Salzburg.
YOUTH HOTELS – Family-run and well-equipped!
The heart of our camps. The locations are well-run family operations, which have decades of experience with kids and work together hand in hand with young austria on the success of the camps. Always an open ear for questions and of the highest quality. Individual like our participants. The meals are healthy, regional and adapted to the tastes of our young guests. Special requests for vegetarians or allergy sufferers are taken into consideration. The rooms are comfortable, spacious and well-equipped. A highlight is definitely the many, many sports and leisure activitieson-site.
