Not learning vocabulary for 44 days, thinking about math equations or doing homework: summer vacation is wonderfully long. But if all friends are on vacation, and the weather is bad and nothing else is going on, the time can become too long. However, the Go-in team and their 22 collaborators have an antidote to boredom: holiday fun. 34 events for children and young adults are planned between June 24 and August 9, with registrations beginning at 11 a.m. on Sunday.

Bönen – After two restricted Corona programs, the holiday fun brochure is filling up again this year. Among them are such popular offers as a visit to Stemper’s organic farm in Lenningsen (June 27 and 30), fishing with the Hefischer or afternoon games at the Community Library (July 5 and 21), as well as brand-new campaigns.

The start of the holidays

So the beginning is different this time. Instead of a graduation party on the last day of school, a game exchange party is planned for June 24 at Go in.
