ob1This last week in Oberwesel has been great! To start with, although Anna remained in hospital until Monday evening, we actually had no one else being ill enough to go to the doctor or to hospital, that’s a first this summer, yay!

On our first day as a group we went into the town to ‘discover Oberwesel’ and had an ice-cream and bought some souvenirs. In the evening we had an awesome and brand new Quiz Night!

On Tuesday we were to have the water games; however, the weather wasn’t warm enough, and we decided to have sports, wellness, dancing and massage instead. It was a lot of fun! In the evening we had the memorable Oberwesel Game, something never to forget!

We spent a wonderful afternoon on Wednesday at the Naturerlebnisbad in Bingen. It’s an awesome place for a sunny warm day, and very cheap! In the evening we relaxed and watched a nice film.

On Thursday we had our very own medieval games. The children competitively tried to gain points in all the different tasks related to medieval myths, sports or traditions. A summer’s evening meant we could enjoy a lovely BBQ and bonfire outside – Stockbrot and campfire songs included.

Our final day on Friday meant preparation for the end of week party – this week we were playing ‘Beat the Team’, children against crew! We decorated the Saal beautifully and prepared a little Schultüte for every child. We also had some sports and a fun water war! At the party we presented all our certificates and gave out prizes to the winners of all our competitions throughout the week, we then enjoyed a tremendously funny game, and played some party music.
This is the end of this very enjoyable and memorable summer!

ob24th week

Monday – This week we changed the weekly schedule slightly, and did the workshops on Monday and the town visit on Tuesday. The workshops were Zumba, football and, at the end, wellness. We all loved it! At night we had our wonderful Quiz Night, and some of the IP logos were true art masterpieces!

Tuesday – We went down to town Obewesel and learnt some more about it; we went on Tuesday so that this week we could visit the museum. At night, we had a great karaoke. Marta went ill with a high temperature, but she was much better in only 24 hours.

Wednesday – This Wednesday we visited Boppard. We saw the sights and did some shopping, of course! In the evening we watched a film.

Thursday – The medieval games, the barbecue and the “bonfire” party, all hosted by our great great Günter, were amazing. Some experienced kids, the crew and the GLs all took part in helping with the games, and later we all sat by the fire and ate our barbecue. We sang songs and made bread on the fire, and at the end we all helped to tidy up.

Friday – To close this wonderful week, this time we went for a Pirate Party. We spent the afternoon preparing it, making our costumes and the decoration for the Hofsaal. At night, we all were wearing our best pirate clothes, we gave out the certificates, awards and prizes, and we had games and, of course, some dancing!

Saturday – Most of the group set off for home, while four children stayed and spent the morning doing their shopping in Oberwesel, to go to a water park after lunch. It was great!

We have started a competition similar to the Houses in Harry Potter, where each group of rooms from the Kolpinghaus is a House and they get or lose points according to helpfulness, tidiness, punctuality, rule obeyance, The kids love it, and it helps improve tidiness and attitude!
