Cúl Camp 2019 – Excitement among the youth of Vienna as Cúl Camp returns for second edition

It’s a big weekend for the young Gaels of Vienna as 28 participants take part in this year’s Vienna Gaels Cúl Camp at the Vienna Gaels Gaelic Football base at Meiereistraße 20, 1020 Wien. Kindly supported by the Irish Department of Foreign Affairs, the Gaels will be able to host two experienced coaches from CLG Na Fianna, County Dublin for the weekend.

Cúl Camp preluded by GAA introductions in local schools

Arriving this week, our coaching experts will be visiting two local schools, Volksschule der Stiftungs Theresianische Academie and the Danube International School Vienna, in order to introduce Gaelic Games to a new audience of young aspiring Gaels. Some of those children taking part will also be taking part in the weekend’s Cúl Camp, with the possibility for further Gaelic Games sessions in the future thanks to the Gaels’ children’s GAA equipment, ranging from footballs to sliotars, hurleys and helmets, kindly gifted to the club by GAA headquarters.

A weekend of youthful fun awaits

The camp will take place on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th May. Taking place at our usual Gaelic Football base at Meiereistraße 20, 1020 Wien, it will run from 10am to 3 pm on each day. The camp cost includes for each child; lunch, Cúl Camp Jersey and hoodie and of course, games and coaching from our coaching experts as well as members of the Vienna Gaels. Sports included will be Gaelic Football, Hurling and Rounders, with the weekend being rounded off with the now annual ‘Kids v Parents’ derby game, which is sure to be hotly contested as always.
