The intergenerational camp in the Ardennes: an important annual tradition for the Foyer youngsters and the ladies of Dar Al Amal

6 May 2023

From 9 to 12 May, it’s that time again: a cheerfully mixed group of young people on the one hand, and enthusiastic ladies from emancipation house Dar Al Amal on the other, will set off together for a few days to exchange the bustle of Molenbeek for the healthy forest air of Saint-Hubert.

The aim of this annual camp is to relax together and, through hands-on learning, live together, by sharing both household chores and fun during activities (hiking, visits to the Caves of Han with its animal park, open air museum Fourneau Saint-Michel), music and games (mini-golf on the Chevetogne domain).

Each time, this leads to an enriching exchange across generations, mother tongues and cultural backgrounds, a virtuous effect of re-energising and unwinding in nature, and lots of fun.
