Summer 2013 we again had several groups of children. The first group were 11 children from Vienna, with their carers. The second week was really special as the children were so young, aged between 4 and 12, and this was their first opportunity ever to experience life in a mountain hut. It was interesting to observe how they learned to play in the woods, and got closer each day to the horses and cows. We made an effort to treat each child individually and care for his or her needs. During the week the children became more helpful and kind to each other, looking after each other and motivating one another.

They had lots of wonderful experiences and were able to go home with a newfound energy.
