Applications for youth leisure programme start on 2 February

Whether mountains or the sea, day trips or camps: This year, the district of Waldeck-Frankenberg is once again organising an attractive leisure programme with many highlights for children, young people and families. Registrations will be accepted from 2 February.

Leisure activities for all
This year, there will again be a mini-vacation with fun and games at the Jugendburg Hessenstein, holiday trips to the North Sea and the Baltic Sea, to Zell am See or skiing in Saalbach-Hinterglemm. Whether for children or young people, boys or girls or the whole family: there are suitable offers for every age group and gender. Boys, for example, are welcome to sign up for a short adventure holiday at the Harbshausen sports camp. Girls can take part in a leisure time of several days in Hardehausen under the motto "Adventure Games". Furthermore, there are self-defence and self-assertion courses. The educational project "Kids do Circus" in the summer in Frankenberg is another highlight.

A new addition to the programme this year is a Dance Camp, which takes place in the Easter holidays for children and young people aged 11 to 14 at Korbach Youth Hostel. In three days, participants can practise dancing - from hip-hop to break dance. They will learn professional moves with break dance artist Daniel Winterstein. The highlight of the dance camp will be dance games, a disco and a dance battle with a trophy ceremony. At the end of the camp, there will be a final show for parents, friends and family.

"I am pleased that the leisure activities for children, young people and families can really take off again this year," says District Administrator Jürgen van der Horst. "In the past years, we were all slowed down by the pandemic." He adds that personal contacts and events are particularly important for children and young people. "With the varied programme that our team has put together again this year, there should be something exciting for everyone.

Register online
The start of registration has been postponed from 26 January to 2 February. From 2 February, it will be possible to register for the various events online. "This makes it easier for us to organise registrations, ensures less paperwork and is much simpler and more convenient for the families," agree specialist service provider Matthias Schäfer and his deputy Andreas Greif. "We are expecting a good response again this year. Those who register quickly can secure one of the coveted places."

Further information on the annual programme and the individual events is also available online at or from the district's sports and youth work department by phone 05631 954-458 or by e-mail:
