Mother-Child Camp in the Netherlands
the very first time the Dutch Baptist Women‘s organization
"Taakveld Women‘s Work" and the Dutch Young Baptists organization
NBJB organized in July 2010 a holiday camp for single mothers and their
children. The children had a fantastic week with outdoor and indoor
games, crafting, singing, sports, swimming and even an outing to an
mothers had their own programme: having a real vacation! Cycling (in
the rain, yes this is Holland!) and walking in the beautiful
surroundings of the Dutch Baptist Center - De Strubben - in
the province of Drenthe with its woods and fields of heath. Also they
were creative with crafts, having nice dinners and other programmes.
The theme of the week was: "Wake UP!" and it will come as
no surprise that it took no effort to involve everyone in the morning
to get out of bed. After a wonderful week there was a closing evening
with acts by children and mothers.
Everybody knew it for sure: This was such a great vacation: Next year Again!
