Games and fun challenge the team spirit

Getting to know each other, fostering camaraderie, and being in direct contact with nature are the goals of the three-day camp that the district fire department youth organize every year at the youth campsite behind saaleck castle. With 140 young people and supervisors from a dozen fire departments, the "out in the green" event took place in lam this year again good reception.
"The special charm of the youth camp has not lost since the times in the reither muhle", noted district fire chief benno metz in his funeral with a smile, who himself was still a "youngster" at the time there was. "The youth fire departments are important to us in all areas. That’s why the state firefighters’ association is engaged in targeted recruitment of young firefighters", he adds.
"Joint activities – even outside of working hours – kept us together", also knew district administrator thomas bold, who handed over a check to district youth director klaus kippes, knowing that "the money is well spent". And mayor ernst stross enthused about "tracks of stones under the naked pigeons and sleeping without a feather bed at night" as a special experience.
What do 14- to 18-year-olds do all day at a camp?? Playing fubball, sitting around the campfire, karaoke shows? "Right", says deputy youth director christine gran. But there was much more. For example, there was an invitation from the german armed forces to try out the so-called constant track and a visit from a rescue dog team, including a tasting of "great chili con carne", like a 16-year-old swarming.
The "firlefanz" artists from schweinfurt also provided variety with diabolo games, unicycling and balance exercises on the rope as workshops to participate in. Silke and matthias ebert, who have been running a juggling and artistry school for three years, also came up with a rough fire show in the evening.
"Staying up late at night, sitting around the campfire with others and sleeping outdoors", for 15-year-old elisabeth and 14-year-old lesley-anne from the stralsbach youth fire department, there’s something adventurous about breaking through the boredom at home." "There is plenty of work in the camp", the two teenagers think and point to the painting of their flags, which then find a place on the rough gerust tower.
"This is like a vacation, luisa and larissa of the fire department youth pfaffenhausen assure. They were impressed by their visit to the hammelburg camp, especially by the "tarzan jump on the rope over the moat". Of course, we also have to do night watches, for example, to ward off the (announced) raid of fuschter youths. "We arrested them and then brought them to the bonfire", both are pleased about the successful "defense" of their camp.
"The youth campsite of the district is optimal for such purposes and has the necessary facilities such as toilets, showers and a kitchen", youth officer kippes emphasized. A special cake team with chef silvia kleespies from kahl and her team of helpers is taking care of the catering. "Since we got silvia, we no longer have to cut the spaghetti into pieces with a knife", christine gran is pleased.
Also a common service with the emergency pastor, dean thomas kebler, and a music group and a camp olympiad stood on the program, which finds the unexceptional approval and its goal – new friends find and contacts under the fire-brigade youth groups in the district – achieved.
