Applications for youth leisure program start on February 2

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

Leisure activities for all
Once again this year, there will be a mini-vacation with fun and games at the Jugendburg Hessenstein, vacation trips to the North Sea and Baltic Sea, to Zell am See or to Saalbach-Hinterglemm for skiing. Whether for children or teenagers, boys or girls, or even for 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 vacation at the Harbshausen sports camp. Girls can take part in a leisure activity lasting several days under the motto "Adventure Games" in Hardehausen. There are also self-defense and assertiveness courses. The educational project "Kids do Circus" in the summer in Frankenberg is another highlight.

A new addition to the program this year is a Dance Camp, which takes place during the Easter vacations for children and young people aged 11 to 14 at Korbach Youth Hostel. In three days, participants can practice 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'm 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 previous years, we were all slowed down properly by the pandemic." Personal contacts and events are especially important for children and young people, he adds. "So with the varied program 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 January 26 to February 2. Starting Feb. 2, people will be able to register for the various events online. "This makes it easier for us to organize registrations, ensures less paperwork and is much simpler and more convenient for 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."
