Preparation Weekend April 2024

The time had finally come:


Ten nations made their way to Michelstadt by bus, train, plane and car. It was a warm, sunny weekend that allowed us to get to know the camp from its most beautiful side. On Friday evening and Saturday, the many staffs and volunteers prepared the program, the content and the main objectives of the camp in August. Many new contacts were made and on Sunday, after a farewell round and an evaluation, it was time to head home again.


BUT - the anticipation is now great and we are looking forward to making further arrangements in Zoom meetings over the next few weeks.

here you will find in the next weeks more informations of the YMCA camp in Michelstadt/Frankfurt

 Toolkit YMCA Youth Work
A Tookit? A bunch of tools, neatly put together for doing a spot of DIY? No, not even close!

In actual fact, our Toolkit here contains a vast amount of files all meant to support you as a youth worker during every aspect of your work: Tried an tested ideas, actionable programming, games, group building and forming activities, background information, bible insights and so much more. 

To get things in a useful order we have created categories as you see at the right side of the screen - look at those nicely colored tags called "YMCA", "Devotion", "We are Europe" and so forth - you'll get the idea, just click and see. Enjoy and make the most it! 

And never forget: This is not a oneway street - contribute to this Toolkit, send us your ideas, programs, everything you find useful in your day to day YMCA activities. Your participation is highly appreciated!
