Lowdown on Daun

Home » News » Lowdown on Daun

This was the 53rd year of our youth exchange with the TUS Daun sports club in Daun, (pronounced down) in the beautiful Eifel area of Rheinlandpfalz in the West of Germany. At the end of July we headed there with 12 youngsters and 3 leaders (Steve and Viv Kemp and Dawn Wright). As Dawn took part in the exchange herself when she was a teenager, it was a voyage of rediscovery for her. After 11 years of co-leading and leading the exchange, we are looking for new leaders who would be prepared to work alongside us and eventually take over. Vivienne and Dawn are going to lead the exchange next year with Steve helping part-time

Here are some thoughts from one of our participants, Jennifer, age 14: "This year's German Exchange was an amazing experience with once in a lifetime opportunities such as card games on a motorway, making lifelong friends and learning to be a Roman Gladiator as well as many other great activities. It is hard to put into words what a unique and memorable experience it was and I am so thankful for all who support it."
