Type of Work: The main focus of the camp is creating free time activities for children coming from the region of Brandenburg and from Poland - presumably there will also be young refugees amongst the kids. Moreover, there will be various creative workshops, like sport competitions, games and free time activities. Planned is also a discussion on the complex situation considered international youth work and the german-polish border region in an interactive form of learning-by-doing.
