Important Information About Pandemic Measures


2021 Summer Camps

To guarantee that the children‘s vacation camps can take place during the pandemic and ensure everyone’s safety at the same time, the Family Service has decided to reduce group sizes and make a negative Coronavirus test a prerequisite for participation.

In planning our camps, we work closely with both the Youth Welfare Office Aachen and the Family Service Office of Uniklinik RWTH Aachen.

Children will have to present a negative COVID test on their first day at camp and on the following Wednesday to participate. This test can either be a self-test taken at home with the help of their parents or a rapid test taken at an official test center.

Family Services is happy to provide families with the self-tests, and parents can pick them up at Family Services starting the week before summer vacation. Everyone – staff and children – will still be required to wear masks while at camp.

Please note that all of these measures will continuously be reevaluated and adapted to the pandemic situation. Therefore, changes may have to be made at short notice. The safety and health of all participants are of the utmost importance to us. Our top priority under the current circumstances is that our vacation camps can be carried out safely in the long term.

We are looking forward to summer vacation and a great time together.
