Dewsbury Amateur Swimming Club

The German Exchange visit with TuRa Bergkamen



Your hospitality is in demand! Dear swimmers and friends, We enjoyed our week with “TuRa Bergkamen" October 2017.
So we have invited "TuRa" to visit Dewsbury Dolphins in 2018. So now it's our turn to offer accommodation for the return visit.

The dates are Saturday TBA. to saturday TBA. October 2018. This date is determined by the autumn holidays of our German friends.
We expect the arrival of a group of about 30 people, 20 girls and boys aged 10...to 18 year old. With around 10 to 12 adults.

We are looking for HOST Families to put a German child up or adult.

They do not need there own room, a put-up bed, Lillo, or a camp bed, is all that is needed in your Childs bed room. On the floor or any room is all we ask for. Depending on time table an evening snack and breakfast is all that is required. On some days a small lunch packet will be required.

Sunday is a free day and liaison with other host families may help you to arrange a group visit to some local attraction so the English & German children can have time to get to know each other. In the past we have used Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Pugneys, Yorkshire Mining Museum (free), The Ponderosa Heckmondwike, Local swimming/leisure pool.

For Families with adult guests we arrange to have a meal in a local pub.

The rest of the week Monday to Friday we take them out from 08:00 on day trips. Returning times will be listed on the weekly program.

We know that most people work and over the past 35+ years we have found that any problem can be sorted.
There is always someone to help with chauffeuring the child around if this is a problem with your work starting times.

So please give it a try like many of the host families in the past, some are still putting up a German child even though their own children do not swim with the club. They just enjoy the experience. Still not convinced we can put you in touch with some of the parents who are still involved after many years.
