Summertime is vacation time. But not all parents can afford six weeks of childcare, or take time off of work. Even friends or grandma and grandpa don't always live nearby and have time. So you have to plan, plan, plan. If you want to start now, you can find some of the first summer activity offers on the websites of clubs and schools. We introduce them in our article.

Bonn International School Summer Camp

Here, kids have a chance to be sporty or get creative. "Our programs take place in the school, on the campus and around it," says Rene Glinkowski, BISSV Club Coordinator at Bonn International School, "The immediate proximity to the Rheinaue is really nice for us!" The school offers a vacation program for children starting at age four, lasting up to three weeks. Registration is on a weekly basis and the price includes a hot lunch. The children can choose between three different meals every day. "The activities are not run by professional coaches or trainers, but by alumni of the school," says Glinkowski, "They know best what the children like to do, as they used to be here themselves." Registration is expected to run until the end of May. English is not a prerequisite.
