Voith offers kids camps to support employees’ families

Together with its sponsoring partners Fechtzentrum Heidenheim, Heideköpfe Heidenheim and Hakro Merlins Crailsheim, Voith again offered three camps for children of Voith employees during summer break in 2022. Whether fencing at the fencing center in Heidenheim, hitting balls at the HellensteinEnergie Ballpark of the Heideköpfe in Heidenheim, or shooting baskets on the court of the Hakro Merlins in Crailsheim – the children were able to let off steam and had plenty of fun.

The kids camp for the fencers started on the very first day of the vacation in the state of Baden-Württemberg. In addition to an introduction to fencing, the focus was on exercises for footwork and speed, among other things, before the kids could jump into the fray and duel in full fencing gear.

“Hit, run and score” was the motto of the baseball kids camp again this year. Heideköpfe National League players Drew Janssen, Logan Grigsby, Jared Mortensen and Konstantin “Socke” Holl showed the participants with a lot of heart and soul what is important in baseball. For three days, the kids practiced hitting, throwing and catching and improved their physical condition.

In joint games, the participants were able to directly apply what they had learned. The highlight of this camp was the "sliding exercise" on a tarp filled with water!

The basketball kids camp took place at the Hakro Merlins in Crailsheim at the end of August. After a short warm-up program, the focus was on playing. The supporting program was rounded off with Merlins professional Bruno Vrcic as a surprise guest. The Bundesliga player first competed with the kids in a basketball contest. He then signed autographs and handed out gift bags to each participant.
