This year we made a camp where an artifact has to be found. This was with us the golden Hörnli.

The camp is thematically based on Uncharted/Indiana Jones/Tomb Raider and thus had counterparts who were dressed in a mercenary outfit.

Wax seals add a beautiful detail to Jungscharname baptismal certificates, letters and scrolls that impress. The engraving can be related to the camp, semester, or even afternoon theme, or can be generally appropriate to the Jungschar.

The materials are intended for a leisure or camp of six to eight days. As a frame story, the children accompany Asterix and Obelix in their challenge to repair the cup of Majestix. Seven stories from the life of Paul were chosen to match the travel adventure of Asterix and Obelix.

After we have experienced a cool Sola with Asterix & Obelix, we do not want to withhold our planning documents from you and hope to be able to provide you with tools and ideas for an exciting Sola.

If you have any questions or uncertainties, please do not hesitate to contact us at Jungschar Uzwil.

This is a sample invitation that you can modify and use for your own EPA afternoon of detective-related experiences.

A book summary of the book "Robin Hood" by Howard Pyle.

Each of the 15 chapters is briefly summarized in key words.

Fancy a weekly game among the kids at camp?

Why is there suddenly a chair wrapped in toilet paper in the dining hall? Zorro and his sidekick have been up to their shenanigans all week without getting caught. Who saw him? Is there any suspicion?

The Zorro week game has already proven itself many times in our Jungschi and the kids are always very happy to participate. At the beginning of the camp, each child receives a lottery ticket. Among many citizens there is also a Zorro (in large groups possibly two Zorros). This one gets various tasks, which he has to do unnoticed with the help of his helper sometime during this camp week.

Citizens are naturally vigilant and can report their suspicions to the game master or to the suspicion list. However, to avoid simply guessing, the suspicion must be substantiated and a false suspicion may result in a small penalty.

Do the citizens manage to blow the whistle on Zorro and/or his sidekick, or does Zorro manage to perform all his duties unnoticed?
