Our organization sponsors several annual events for different age groups. Here are some of them.
Summer Camp for Children (Kinderlager)
Every July the churches of Christ in Vienna organize a week-long camp (KILA) for children ages 7-12. Kids spend time playing games, attending Bible classes, doing crafts and playing sports in the magnificent surroundings of the alpine forest. Our camp counselors encourage them through positive interactions and teach them to solve problems in a constructive way. Children are able to rest from the pressures of daily life, meet new friends from across Austria and Central Europe, and come away having created fun, lifelong memories.
If you are interested in finding out more about the next camp session, please contact us.
Summer Camp for Youth (Jugendlager)
The Viennese churches of Christ also organize a week-long youth camp in July, for ages 13-18 (TBD). With the pressures of teenage life always threatening to turn our youth away from God, Jugendlager (JULA) offers a week to escape, be encouraged by their friends and focus their attention on their creator. Time is spent on the daily temptations and struggles our teenagers face, and how they can rely on God in their times of need. And many hours are spent playing sports, relaxing, and enjoying the mountain scenery, of course.
Please contact us for information for next year’s Jugendlager.

Church Retreats (Gemeindefreizeit)
Schwarzwaldeckhaus is a great location to hold a weekend retreat for the spiritual renewal of your members. Peaceful seclusion, a lack of the modern world’s distractions, and simple but comfortable accommodations help maintain a spiritual focus during your event and encourage your group to build community. We especially welcome groups that would like to schedule the house for a retreat on regular basis (for example, annually).
If you would like to inquire about scheduling the house for your next group event, please contact us.
