Your summer full of encounters! Together with employees of the Hephata Foundation, who are committed to help people with disabilities, you will carry out two one-week vacation offers of 8 days each. You will be used as an assistant in the running of the activities. This vacation is primarily aimed at people with learning difficulties who have a high degree of independence and a low level of care and who can actively participate in activities. They will be accompanied by professional assistants who have been trained according to their individual needs. At the beginning of each week of the holiday, the offered actions and activities are discussed in accordance with the wishes of the people with disabilities. Joint meals and campfire evenings with communal singing are scheduled during all three weeks. You will be in close contact with the people with disabilities, since they will be living with you on the grounds and you will be spending a lot of time with them. You should therefore be very open to meeting them on-site.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

You cook together. Money for the food shopping is provided to you. Vegetarian or vegan meals are possible. Please indicate any allergies when registering. House called “Lindenbaum”, which is a group house with shared rooms in Bergneustadt https://www.gruppenfreizeiten.de/haus-lindenbaum-bergneustadt

Locatie en vrije tijd

House “Lindenbaum” is located in the “Bergisch Land”. A foosball table, own football field and table tennis invite guests for activities in the fresh air. Idyllically located in a small village on the edge of the forest, the house offers not only relexation for nature lovers, but from here you can make wonderful excursions or short trips into the wonderful landscape. While the surrounding countryside with its extensive fields, lakes and forests invites you to exciting and varied hikes, the metropolitan areas of Gummersbach, Olpe and Cologne as well as the “Sauerland” region provide a wealth of interesting and attractive cultural and leisure activities. Excursion destinations in the immediate vicinity include the “Biggeblick” viewing platform. The leisure activities in the region are very diverse, so that the different needs can also be satisfied. These include: paddling, geo-caching, bicycle tours, bowling, skittles walks, hiking, handicrafts and works, collecting firewood and making campfires, sightseeing tours of the city, a visit to the zoo, a boat trip on the Rhine. Outdoor facilities of the house include a large barbecue area and a fire pit.


Covid Rules (may change depending on the course of the pandemic): 2G+: Only vaccinated and recovered persons can register for the work camp. All participants must arrive with an official negative rapid test (not older than 24 hours) or PCR test (not older than 48 hours). On arrival, this and a vaccination or recovery certificate must be presented, and a self-rapid test must be carried out. Thereafter, the entire group must perform a rapid self-test at least every 72 hours. We will provide self-rapid tests for the arrival and the whole camp period! Subject to changes! You will receive more detailed information after confirming your registration and at least 3 weeks before the start of the camp with the specific info sheet for your camp.


In order to participate in this camp, you need to be comfortable around people with disabilities and not afraid of coming into contact with them. These are fundamental requirements for this project. Participants who love a cosy communal lifestyle, enjoy making music, maybe even play an instrument themselves (e.g. guitar), sing and enjoy cooking are particularly welcome to join us. You also need to be able to swim. Since there is a different offer of activity on every day, your working hours could total up to 8 hours a day, plus the communal lunch break. In order to compensate for this, one day of the week will be an extra ‘free’ day, so that you will only be working 4 days per week. The working week and days off are distributed among the participants in consultation. There is limited space for privacy in this camp.
