Voith offers kids camps to support employees’ families

Together with its sponsoring partners Heideköpfe Heidenheim, Fechtzentrum Heidenheim and Hakro Merlins Crailsheim, Voith organized three summer camps in 2021 to help provide care for employees' children.

Childcare is a challenge for many parents. That is why Voith offered a summer program for the next generation in 2021. A total of 65 children, age 8 to 14, took part in the free programs. The focus was on the joy of movement and teamwork. Whether baseball, basketball or fencing, the children practiced their physical endurance, but also concentration and coordination.

The Voith Fencing Kids Camp kicked off on July 29 and 30, 2021: 25 children were able to immerse themselves in the world of fencing for two days. The children were prepared for the fencing sessions with games to train their coordination skills. After that, they practiced with plastic swords, until it was time to try a real epee. The children were also able to demonstrate their learned skills in duels during a tournament.

"Hit the ball hard - and run" was the motto of the Voith Baseball Kids Camp from August 2 to 4, 2021. A total of 30 girls and boys participated in the camp which was held at the Heideköpfe Ballpark. The kids enjoyed meeting with the Heideköpfe coaches, who are also active players in the first national league. 

The final camp was the Voith Basketball Kids Camp in Crailsheim from August 30 to 31, 2021. During this camp, ten children and teenagers were able to get a taste of the Bundesliga air of the Crailsheim basketball team in the BlueBox and had a lot of fun playing basketball.
