The “Holznagelhausen” adventure playground is a holiday activity in the Veitshöchheim community. For 2 weeks, together with other volunteers, you'll be looking after 200 children between the ages of 7 and 13 – split into 14 groups - across a large outdoor area. You'll build wooden huts, offer sports and other workshop activities to the children (from football to baseball, baking pizzas in a stone oven to crafts and pedagogical games). You'll be able to have a lot of fun together. During the camp you'll be able to contribute your own ideas and skills, learn about how a youth project is carried out, experience working in a big team, learn new languages and make many new friends!
Accommodatie en maaltijden
You’ll be staying in shared rooms in the “Am Kalten Brunnen” (at the cold fountains) nature hostel. The group will prepare and cook meals together.
Locatie en vrije tijd
In Veitshöchheim there's a very nice outdoor swimming pool, boat tours along the river Main and lots of nice people to get to know. You can get to Würzburg in about 10 minutes on the train, where you can enjoy its many sights (castles, chapels, residences) as well as shopping opportunities, cinemas, cafés and nightlife. In the surrounding areas there is a climbing area, a leisure park, a go-kart track, all kinds of youth clubs, relaxing areas, cycle paths and skate parks. You could also take a trip to Nuremberg or Frankfurt at the weekend. So come and have a look!
