about us

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 some of our camps you will see this sign. This means that this camp hosts participants from all over the world. Every year, we welcome nearly 3,000 participants from more than 50 different nations, and we provide them with unforgettable experiences. Friendships are formed across continents and language skills are improved. Cultural diversity is experienced and redefined, fear of contact is reduced. This is 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.
