CHILDREN S CONSTRUCTION SITE SCHEINFELD | IBG 33 | 2020-08-18 - 2020-08-30 | KIDS,CONS | Age: 18 - 99


“Children’s construction site” is a pedagogically accompanied adventure playground, where children can come in to play, build and experiment with whatever materials they can find. They can build huts, play with mud and water, stone and wood. The idea is to allow children to be creative, bring in their own ideas, and just play. The adults, who work there on a voluntary basis, are there to guide, help and support the children with the implementation of their own ideas. The “construction site” is open to children and youngsters from 7 years and older; participation is free. This project is great for anyone who enjoys working with children and with natural materials such as wood. By volunteering in this project, you are supporting an inclusive and sustainable children’s summer program for the children of Scheinfeld (UN SDG 11 sustainable communities).

Work: The community of Scheinfeld is looking forward to welcoming you on their children’s construction site this summer to support them with their vacation program. You will join the team of local volunteers to help and guide the children in their creative projects, meaning that you will spend a lot of time outside in the fresh air and help the children with their constructions, using saws and hammers. Another task will be to take care of the campfire and help making bread on a stick. You are also going to be active in construction yourself: You will build a big fort at the entry of the adventure park. Feel free to bring in your own ideas and to develop your own project!

Accomodation and food: The group will be staying at the local school building which has a gymnasium equipped with all necessary sanitary facilities. There is a huge kitchen which the group is free to use as well as a nice outside area that is all yours during the summer holidays. You will also get free access to the warm outdoor swimming pool next to one of your working sites. Please bring a sleeping bag!
