The island of Norderney is located in the Wadden Sea National Park in Lower Saxony, which is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. The youth campsite is located four kilometers from the town centre, surrounded by dunes between the Wadden Sea and the open North Sea. School trips, tent-free days, and special activities for children and young people all take place here, organised by the youth welfare association of the Aurich district. During the summer holidays, over 200 children spend their free-time on this campsite. The campsite needs to be repaired in preparation for the summer season. You can test your technical skills by setting up a basketball court, repairing wooden paths and building tents for the summer camp.
Additional note on accommodation: You will be staying in 6-bed wooden huts. The huts are near to the large multipurpose building fitted with washrooms, toilets, seminar rooms etc. Your accommodation is located in the middle of the dunes on Norderney island.
