Medieval camps are a great opportunity to live in a castle and at the same time to get to know the lives of people in the Middle Ages. You spend the night in tents on the Burgplatz or even in the old castle walls.
There are many activities around that Medieval life: Making clothes, building bow and arrow toys, singing old songs or playing adventurous medieval games. A campfire with stick bread should not be missing at a medieval camp, of course!
The children can visit many medieval camps alone without parents. The children then live together with youth leaders in the castle during the holiday camp. The advantage of these overnight stays at the castle is that they also get to know other children. The free time is usually not expensive, as many such free times are sponsored by churches or youth organizations and the castle offers cheap accommodation.
A medieval camp is offered, for example, by the Evangelische Jugendzentrale Otterbach or on the Johannitergut Beinrode.
