Despite the partly rainy weather, there was no sign of boredom among the participants: Whether visiting the herb pasture, fishing, playing mini golf or romping around in the gym – the participants enjoyed the activities with all their senses. The visit of the Red Cross dog search team directly at the holiday camp and the alpacas on the farm in Peilstein will be particularly memorable.
Katja Bieringer, head of the holiday camp, summed it up with satisfaction: “It was another great week. The integration was particularly important and worked great. It’s nice to see how much the participants enjoy the time together.”
Time off for relatives
The main aim of the integrative holiday camp is to break down prejudices and fear of contact with people with disabilities. It is also an important relief time for the caring parents and relatives during the summer holidays.
The initiative is financed to a large extent from donations, and Arcus is happy about any financial and personal support so that the holiday camp can take place again in the coming years.
