After arrival the group will be split. One half will host the first week some 30-40 children of 9 and 10 years that come for one week. The other half will host some 20 children from 10 to 12 years with special needs. The second week the two groups of volunteers will join and host some 30-40 children from 6 to 8 years. Together with other international volunteers and local volunteers you will organise activities for the kids to have an unforgettable week full with fun and leisure. This type of volunteering calls for creative people who can make up all sorts of games from scratch to play with the children: music, sports, cooking, arts, language sessions, creativity, etc. Therefore the content of this project is up to you and the other participants.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

You will be staying in a campfarm called Groen (Green) in Oudemirdum with a dormitory and camping which is part of a cow farm. The first week one part of the group will stay at a campsite in Appelscha where there is also a dormitory. You will need to bring your own sleeping bag. If you prefer you can also stay in a tent. There are cooking facilities and you will join the youngsters during the meal.

Locatie en vrije tijd

Of course there will be sufficient free time. Together with your camp leaders you will discuss the recreational program. Friesland is well known for its sailing opportunities. Leisure time will also be spent on the general theme Discover your impact, linked to the Sustainable Development Goals.


The location of the project is an accommodation in the rural area of Friesland that during the summer is the home for some 30-40 children from the north of the Netherlands for a great summer vacation. These kids come from families who for one reason or another can’t afford to offer their child a summer vacation. This could for example be for medical, financial or social reasons. A group of volunteers offers them an unforgettable week with all type of activities. Our partner is Humanitas, an organisation well known in the Netherlands and one of the main social services and community building organisations of the Netherlands. Humanitas is a non-profit association which aims to support people who, for a range of different reasons, temporarily can not manage on their own. The organisation was founded on May 31, 1945 directly after the Second World War to provide support to the impoverished population of the Netherlands. It has since grown to an organisation of over 80 local chapters, divided over 5 districts all over the Netherlands.
