Of course, the camp leaders and partner organization will encourage the volunteers to put forward their own ideas for a recreational program, but in this project it is a tradition that activities are being suggested and/or organised by State Forestry, e.g. a 'mudwalking' tour on the ‘bottom’ of the Wadden area; a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of the world’s largest area of intertidal sand and mudflats. A unique experience! Other activities during the week can be swimming, bicycling, visiting the flourishing city of Groningen or the Westerbork transit 16 camp (where Anne Frank was prisoned).
• Tent, an airbed/mat and sleeping bag
• Old/working clothes
• High top sneakers (needed for mudwalking)
• Rubber boots (working fields can be very muddy!)
• Rain is spread out over the year, so bring warm clothes, a raincoat and a swimming suit!
