Activities

Educators and youth coordinators offer a range of activities for children, including: outdoor and indoor games, creative, artistic and sporting activities, discovery walks and workshops, theatrical events, themed programmes, and much more.

Aktioun Bambësch

The Aktioun Bambësch programme was first launched over 40 years ago and is now held three times a year. It is aimed at children in Cycles 1.1 to 4.2 who live in the Luxembourg City. As part of this project, the city organises a range of free leisure activities in the afternoon during certain school holidays (one week at Easter, four weeks during the summer holidays and one week at Christmas).

The activities begin at around 14:00 and end between 17:00 and 18:00. Since Aktioun Bambësch takes place during school holidays, the organisers take care to make the afternoons as fun as possible and get the children involved in selecting their activities.

In keeping with our mission, the ultimate goal is to spark and encourage children's creativity, provide opportunities for them to develop their knowledge, and allow them to engage in group activities in a fun and entertaining environment outside of school.

During these activities, the children are closely supervised by specially trained youth coordinators, who themselves are overseen by educational staff from CAPEL, which belongs to the Service Foyers scolaires (Childcare Department).

How to get there

For transport to and from Aktioun Bambësch, a special bus service will be provided. Buses to the site will depart between 13:20 and 13:40, and the children will be brought back between 18:05 and 18:50. Please be advised that these bus times are approximate and actual arrivals/departures depend on the traffic situation at the time.

For return trips, parents of children under the age of 8 must pick up their children at the bus stop they specify in the registration form
(note: in some cases, the bus stop for departures and the bus stop for returns are not on the same side of the street). Older children can return home on their own.

More information on the bus schedule and where it stops will be published below in due time.

The bus stops, schedules and bus numbers will be communicated to you on this page 2 weeks prior to the start of the Aktioun Bambësch.
