on a mountain farm
Ages: Youth in challenging circumstances
Size: 8-10 participants + 2 counsellors
Time: 1 week + follow up
(Scholarships from donated funds may be available)
The WHITE weeks take place on a mountain farm in Ramsau on the Dachstein/Austria
The farm is surrounded by unique mountain scenery immediately below the Southern Dachstein Forest. Lifts are located next door, and thus this farm and its environment provide a unique starting point for both winter experiences and fun in the snow.
The mountain farm offers accommodations but requires participants to supply groceries and such needs, which fits our pedagogical approach. The group itself bears the responsibility for the purchase and preparation of the meals on a wood-burning stove. The availability of electronic media is rather limited.
All weeks contain devotionals, which connect the experience to everyday life. Beyond this, the staff speaks from their own lives and their Christian walks. In this way, participants are invited into open dialog about life and faith.
