Holiday activities for children and young people
In Luxembourg, children and young people have the choice of many holiday activities offered by the various youth associations. Here are some of the best known activities:
- 'Aktioun Bambesch': holiday activities for kids between the ages of 5 and 12 years living in Luxembourg City;
- 'Summerakademie': summer school organised by the European Circle for the Proliferation of Art (Cercle Européen pour la Propagation des Arts, CEPA), offering art classes for children and young people;
- 'SDS Sportswochen' (sport weeks): sports camps for young people aged 11 to 17 years;
- Holiday camps: The website www.colonies.lu gives you details about all the holiday camps for children and young people in the Grand Duchy.
Many municipalities and/or their day-care centres (maisons relais) organise activities during the summer holidays;
Guides and Scouts also organise their own camps, which are, however, mostly reserved to their members.
