ADVENTURE PLAYGROUND SIGMARINGEN | IBG 40 | 2020-08-09 - 2020-08-22 | CONS,SOCI | Age: 16 - 21


Build an adventure playground in an institution for children and teenagers on the autism spectrum. 24 children with autism, aged 6 to 14 years, live here in three residential groups. At the moment all of them are male. An adventure playground is to be built outside the institution, offering space for fun, adventure and movement. The institution is catholic but open to all children. It acts on behalf of the state. This project is especially suitable for volunteers with an interest in social work. The local host runs many other inclusive homes and projects. Apart from the work, the interaction will also play an important role and you have to be open for contact with these children and also teenagers and young adults living or working in the institution.

Work: Build an adventure playground in an institution for children on the autism spectrum. Concrete tasks will be the construction of swings, seesaws, playhouses and the like. The design of the playground is currently being worked out, and the children’s ideas will be incorporated. A small forest will be included, there will also be a corner where children can play and build with different elements, such as clay, sand, and water. Under professional guidance and with the support of young locals you will work with wood, paint, dig and concrete. At the end you will hand over the place to the children.

Accomodation and food: The group is accommodated in a part of the institution that is not used during the school holidays. Here you will find very luxurious conditions with single/double rooms, a kitchen, a hall for common activities and much more.

Location: Sigmaringen

Location and Leisure: Sigmaringen is a historical town with 17,000 inhabitants on the banks of the Danube. Besides the famous castle, there are numerous other sights and various cultural, shopping and leisure activities. The beautiful nature of the Upper Danube Valley invites to outdoor activities. Joint activities with locals will certainly be part of the program. It will be up to you to decide together how to use your free time.

Train/Bus station:

Requirements: A motivationletter is required where you relate to your interest in the project and your interest in social working in general Regarding the Extra-Fee: IBG considers this project particularly valuable and worthy of implementation. Therefore we decided to do it even without sufficient financing and pay for it to a large extent ourselves. Unfortunately, we have to ask all volunteers to contribute 120 Euros to the costs. This amount must be transferred to IBG two weeks before the camp starts.
