Description

Auersperg-International Summer Camp is a family run camp organized by a mother-daughter team Sofia and Mariette Auersperg-Breunner.

The all-inclusive program provides a unique experience for children aged 8-15 years from different countries to combine language lessons in German and/or English with a full program of exciting and inspiring outdoor activities, adventures, athletic programs, excursions, and creative, cultural immersions.

The camp is kept intentionally small, with no more than 35 participants per week, in order to keep the family atmosphere, we are known for.

The camper to counselor ratio of 5:1 allows us to adapt to each individual child’s needs and we attach great importance to each child’s care.
The very unpretentious and family-like atmosphere has always been much appreciated by all our visitors and is an important characteristic of the camp’s identity.

Our main goal is to provide children with high quality language lessons and diverse activities for a fulfilling summer experience, and to offer an outstanding service for both children and parents.

Join us for an unforgettable and enriching summer camp experience!
We are looking forward to welcoming your children at our summer camp!
