Together with a group of German caregivers, you will support a summer free-time program for children aged 6-12 years old. 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 5pm. On Friday, there’s one overnight-stay and a common breakfast. Saturday afternoon and Sunday are free. The summer camp is situated next to a forest and a sportsground which allow for many outdoor adventures for the children, such as building huts or playing sports. But there will also be many opportunities for creative workshops. You are welcome to bring your own games, songs and ideas!
Accommodatie en maaltijden
You will stay directly in Weil der Stadt. Camp beds, sanitary facilities and a kitchen are provided. During the week, you will eat your lunch with the children and don’t need to cook.
Locatie en vrije tijd
Weil der Stadt is a town with almost 20.000 inhabitants. It has a very nice historical centre and is located at the outskirts of the Black Forest – perfect for hiking, if you’re up to it! Also, public transportation is good, so you can easily reach BW’s capital Stuttgart, as well as Karlsruhe or Pforzheim.
It is not necessary to speak German, in order to participate; however, it is a big help for sure The children usually don t speak English; some of the kids have an international background though, so you might be able to communicate with some of them in your mother tongue. NOTE: Please attach a Motivation Letter with your application We would like to know about your motivation to work with children, if you have any experiences in this field and if you speak (a bit of) German.
