Finding balance through outdoor activities
“Komm mat an d’Natur” is aimed at young people, aged 4 -18, and their families, who are at risk of social isolation and are under the care of the Luxembourg Red Cross.
The service offers outdoor group activities that enable participants to take active part in social life. What’s more, they find a physical and creative balance to their daily lives, which has a positive effect on their well-being.
By building a tipi or taking part in a role-playing game, children boost their imagination and improve their social skills: by overcoming obstacles together, they learn how to find solutions and create memories as a group.
Or a family treasure hunt in the forest: overcoming obstacles together and creating new experiences as a family, strengthens family relationships and skills.
Physical activity and different new games give young people the opportunity to develop their personalities and take part in different types of experiences.
These activities have a positive effect in many areas, including: motor skills, self-confidence, attention, concentration, and interaction with their peers.
The beneficiaries of these exercises come from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds and are already in contact with other Red Cross services.
On the one hand, activities for children are organised in collaboration with various Red Cross refugee homes in order to offer children enjoyable moments that might allow them to cope better with their housing situation.
In addition, activities are offered to families and young people in different parts of the country. This experience allows them to try new things, discover new places and it also provides them with ideas for actively organising their free time.
The outings are supervised by a qualified educator with the support of several volunteers, and they have a few objectives:
