The youth welfare office of the town of Bad Oeynahusen is again in 2020 organising a two-week long holiday games event for 130 children between the ages of 6 and 13, who will be looked after and supervised with the help of both the ijgd group and locals.
This year the children will be travelling in time back to the Middle Ages and will be following in the footsteps of farmers and merchants, knights and princesses. They will learn a lot about everyday life in the Middle Ages. The children can make swords and shields, costumes, jewellery and much much more, including competing in tournaments together. But there are also other exciting activities and games which are waiting for the children and little by little, the holiday playground will be transformed into a medieval village. The supervisors will build huts and booths together with the children. The children will need help and supervision when working with wood, hammers and saws. Besides this, there will be trips organised and even an overnight stay with the children is on the agenda. We therefore ask you to come prepared with some ideas and your creative minds! You will spend the first week preparing the holiday games event together with the employees of the youth welfare office. Besides this, you'll have the time to get to know each other as well as to explore not only the town of Bad Oeynhausen, but also other cities. In the second and third weeks, the holiday games event will take place. Your ideas and creativity are very much welcome.
Accommodatie en maaltijden
You will be staying in a youth hostel very close to the town centre. The group will prepare and cook meals together.

In Bad Oeynhausen there are many things around which you can organise your free time: a colourful culture scene, Wilhelminian architecture, inviting cafés and the Balitherme water park. Day trips to places such as Bielefeld, Hannover or Hamburg are possible. In the youth centre you can play billiards, table tennis or table football and also make use of the internet.
