Project Report | Aug 15, 2019
Into the great wide open

By Bernd Siggelkow | Founder

„Wait, I’ll go tell my mum I will join the camp again next year!”

As we approach his home town again, this little boy obviously finds it hard to say good-bye to the past days of our holiday camp. It was not only the first time he went with us on a camp, it was even the first time he ever went outside his home town for a vacation.

Far from everyday stress, the familiar environment with all its crises and existential questions, a lot of children who come to us had the chance to go on holiday camps with us this summer.

For every single one, it is a completely new, great and often eye-opening experience of getting to know a world that was hidden before: Camps at DIE ARCHE are days of seeing nature, finding new friends and further getting to know oneself. The kids love to finally be in the center of attention with our pedagogues caring about them the whole time. When we put them to bed, they get bright eyes as they tell us about what they experienced during the day: “I never had so much fun” or “this camp is the best time ever” are comments we often get to hear. Of course, we are deeply happy about that, yet it also reminds us that it is so important to be there for them back home as well.

On our camps, the children learn what it means to be a team player, build trustful relationships with others and handle conflicts. During the time together, they also tell us and the other children what usually causes worries at home or school. Above all, the children learn how precious they are.

Dear friends: Our heartfelt thanks for your support in the past. We would be very grateful if our vision to create perspectives for children in need remains close to your heart in the future!
