In the first two weeks of summer holidays, they get picked up in the morning, spend their day at a holiday house and return in the afternoon at 5. On Friday, there s one overnight-stay and a common breakfast. Saturday afternoon and Sunday are free. This year, a group of international volunteers will be welcomed for the second time, to support the day care activities.
