Explorerworkshops outdoors

Explorer Workshops in nature take place during vacation day camps or as projects in various institutions like community centres, nature centres, schools or kindergartens.

Especially the vacation programs (Ferienprogramme) in cooperation with the John F. Kennedy Friendship Center are both for German and English speaking children. A lot of the participants are bilingual, some speak no German, some no English.

If a child speaks only little or no German there will always be at least one adult with good to very good English to help out and/or translate. (It is worth noting, however, that this is not a language course for German children who would like to improve their English)

Activities on offer are, amongst other things: whittling and sawing, painting with self - made paint from natural materials, shelter-building, activities concerning animals and plants, discovering nature through the elements: earth, water, fire and air (see also: THEMES)

This initial impulse has resulted into 3 different kinds of activities offered by STADT-WALD-FLUSS:

  • NatureTOURS for adults and families in Berlin's  and Brandenburg's nature and history.


"adventure with the elements" (inside and outside): fun and exciting experiments with earth, water, fire and air
