Credo Association


Non Profit Organization

All our camps are charitable and not profit-orientated. Credo Schloss Unspunnen is in this aspects a Non Profit Organization and tax-exempted (see document).

What is Credo?

It was 60 years ago that some Christians decided to establish camps for children and teenagers, to bring them closer to Jesus and to deepen their faith. They then formed the Credo Association (Credo means ‘I believe’ in Latin). At the beginning, the camps took place in various rented locales throughout Switzerland. Then, in 1961, the association was able to purchase the Unspunnen castle, which enabled them to continue their work. The Credo Association has been supported since it’s beginning by the donations given and the voluntary work done by its many friends.

As demonstrated by our slogan, ‘encounter and experience’, it is just as important to us today as in the past, that we enable children and teenagers to encounter God and to show them how Jesus can be experienced even today.

Besides the kids and teens camps, Credo is also used as a guesthouse and a group house. We are always happy to receive your inquiries! We also offer retreats and camps with different themes for all ages. We would be happy to send you the detailed descriptions of these.

Becoming a member of Credo

The Association currently has about 300 members. We are always happy to welcome new members that are passionate about Credo and who would like to support our work. This way, we are many to shoulder the workload. There are many possibilities of offering your support.

The annual amount of 200.-CHF per person and of 300.- CHF per married couple is principally a financial aid to the kids and the teenager camps, so that the Good News of Jesus Christ can be heard by as many children as possible! You will receive an annual invoice and payment slip.

Each member receives, as a token of appreciation, a yearly voucher for a one night stay at Credo with breakfast included. All members are also warmly invited to attend the general meeting that takes place in March.

We are also always happy to receive your visit or any practical help that you can offer. There is always something to do at Credo.

Above all, what is most important to us is your prayer support. We will gladly send you our monthly prayer letter on demand.
