The Weinsberg Children and Youth Department organizes the two-week holiday city simulation game of "Gnurpsel City" for children aged 9 to 12 years, in which there are all the facilities that can be found in a real-life city. 200 kids elect a mayor, have their own currency, choose a job or enjoy the sports and cultural program. Your tasks involve looking after the children's groups in the individual play areas, the so-called "companies" (mosaic shop, painting, tailoring, wellness salon, wood workshop, etc.) and dismantling the tent city. If you have special crafts or creative skills, please let us know when you sign up and we will try to incorporate them into our planning.

You’ll be staying in a youth centre with its own kitchen. There are showers in the sports hall. The group will prepare and cook meals together. During the city simulation game, you will receive a warm lunch from the other volunteers on site.
