Many thanks for their financial support to Pro Patria Foundation, the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs FDFA, Ernst Göhner Stiftung and Credit Suisse Foundation which allow us to grant price reductions.



Each activity is organised and run by experienced team of head leaders. They have an efficient kitchen crew and several group leaders to back them up. The team looks after the participants from the minute they get up until bedtime. The leaders organise all activities and are also available during periods of individual free time. All leaders take time off during their own holidays to take part in the camps without much financial compensation.
