Welcome!

Camps that are personally created and experienced by an extraordinary team.
Day after day in our Camps Office in Salzburg and in the youth hotels on location.
During the whole year we work to create 11 perfect weeks for our participants from around the world.

VINCENT ACKERMANS
Organisational Director of ya! CAMPS

Vincent is a qualified teacher, responsible for organising and scheduling all tasks and activities of our counsellors. He uses a multi-level recruitment process to choose our counsellors and carries out personal interviews with those shortlisted. Counsellors must be able to demonstrate a sense of responsibility, social competence and a flair for working with children, before they are offered training for the role of "young austria" camp counsellor. Many of our over 150 counsellors have worked for ya! CAMPS for many years, seeing their role less as a job and more as a passion.
