Youth recreation for Cologne kids from refugee and immigrant families

Get out of town - into pleasure! The Jugendladen Mülheim's holiday camp takes young people from immigrant and refugee families out to the countryside and lets them forget their difficult everyday life for a while and simply be kids.

Get out of town - into pleasure! The Jugendladen Mülheim organises an annual holiday camp for "its" kids. For the children and young people, this is a beautiful and rare opportunity to leave the big city, the difficult district of Mülheim/Keupstraße and its familiar surroundings behind for a while.

As part of the trip, the kids can simply be children in one of the Alpine Club's huts: Board games, music, painting, discussions and nature explorations bring different cultures closer together.

Together the group is challenged to master everyday life, to clean up and to act together - not against each other, as they are often exemplified in their quaters.
