Volunteer at “Tvind Olympics”

A beloved action packed tradition

The “Olympics at Tvind” is a yearly activity which takes place in the beginning of September. The sports event is a long standing tradition where children and youth from care homes and schools in Denmark get together for two days of sports, games, social interaction a lot of fun. Around 500 people attend the event.

More than 60 disciplines need to be organised – everything from team sports like football, volleyball and basket ball to archery, athletics, cycling, climbing and other individual sports. There’s also many activities for people who are not great sports enthusiasts; like chess, street art, angling, puzzle games and more.

The disciplines are organised by students from DNS and school who train Development Instructors, since it is a great opportunity to hone your organisational skills and team work abilities.

The preparation camp for the event starts four days before the event itself.
