What Is the University Adventure Playground?

 

Target Group

The University Adventure Playground is a vacation recreation service for the children of RWTH members and students. The RWTH Family Services Center initiated this service to give employed and student parents the possibility to have their children supervised during the Easter, summer, and fall breaks.

Children of employees of the Uniklinik RWTH Aachen can register at the Family Service Office for the Uniklinik RWTH Aachen vacation programs.

Registrations for parents outside the University can also be considered for weeks that are not fully booked.

Program

The program is designed with children aged six to eleven in mind. It is targeted towards sports enthusiasts and adventurous children who want to experience something special during their break. Each week has a different topic: children will be researching, playing, crafting, discovering, and doing sports together. Some of the topics are related to RWTH and its institutions and faculties.

It is also possible to form integrative groups including children with disabilities. Please contact the Family Services Center for more details. Please note, however, that we cannot supervise children who cannot climb stairs or are in need of nursing support, as our facilities and restrooms are not fully accessible for the disabled.

We will send you the final details about the week that you have booked at least a week before the program starts.

Daily Schedule

Children and their supervisors go on exciting discovery and experience tours in the Meuse-Rhine Euroregion area and within our university during the supervised period.

You can drop your child off at the specified meeting point between 7:45 and 8:30am. The program ends at 4pm. Please pick your child up by 4:15pm. If you need to pick your child up at an earlier time on a specific day, please let us know in advance.

A day at the adventure playground begins with having breakfast together. Afterwards, the excursions and play activities begin. At noon there are packed lunches, which are brought from home, before the program continues.
