Wiener Städtische Versicherungsverein invites children of Group company employees to Austria to take part in VIG’s Kids Camp. Its key aims, achieved through participation in joint activities, include promoting a better understanding between the generations, social engagement, an international outlook and an appreciation of diversity.
10 YEARS VIG KIDS CAMP
This summer, Wiener Städtische Versicherungsverein invites children of Group company employees to Austria for the tenth time. About 500 children from 23 european countries – from Ukraine, Slovakia, Poland or Albania – spend two action-packed weeks at the camps in Vienna, Wagrain, Maria Lankowitz and Seeboden.
Besides hiking, sightseeing, tours and plenty of opportunities for sports, games and swimming, the children also visit retirement homes during their stay. Together with their supervisors, the youngsters prepare a number of songs and dance performances for the residents.
“Take your picture of piece”
To win a coveted place at one of the camps 2019, children took part in a photo competition which is open to youngsters aged 9-13 and this year had the theme “Take your picture of piece”. The most imaginative entries were rewarded with an invitation to the Kids Camp.
The goal is to convey values to the children that are part of the day-to-day work within the Group – mutual understanding, a sense of solidarity and social awareness – using fun and entertaining activities.
