Welcome to the gambling den! Here you can play a lot of great games when you have free time. And all of them are somehow different from what you have known up to now. Have you ever driven a carrera track with muscle power? Mastered a QR code hunt? Or experimented with a microwave? Just! So it's time you showed up with us. In the gambling den you will find games that all have something to do with technology / communication or science. And so that you also understand how everything works, this is explained at every game post.
Anyone who enjoys playing can take part. Sometimes just for two or as a group. And so that small competitions can also be held, we keep a ranking list. You can just drop by without registering.
Every participant stands at one side of the playing field. Each player has a joystick with which they can run the fans on their side of the playing field. Now the foam ball must be blown together through the maze stuck on the playing field. If the ball falls off the track, they start again from the beginning. Which group reaches the goal in the shortest time?
You can drive your car through the Carrera track without having an accident. You are driven by a hand crank dynamo, the car is driven faster or slower by cranking. Whoever crosses the finish line first is the winner. Learn how a dynamo is constructed and how it works. Create your own energy with your muscle power and the dynamo.

Pacman instead of on the computer in the open meadow - that's scouting. In pairs you try to find all the coins in your color in the labyrinth in front of the other group.

Various games, all of which have something to do with technology / communication, can be played on site. There are also two activities that take place as a guard run on the camp grounds. Instructions and material can also be borrowed from the play den.
Do you fancy a sporty fox hunt? Small transmitters are hidden in the area that have to be searched for with direction finders. Similar to the direction finding devices that are used to locate wild animals carrying transmitters. The game is comparable to an orienteering run.

Help - many small UFO's crashed over the storage area! Fortunately, we have the technology to find them. In this game, 2 teams compete against each other.

He coordinates his teammates, who use radio and avalanche devices to search for the crashed UFO ’on the camp site. Which team was the first to find all the UFO's and collect the code for the treasure chest? 2 teams of at least 6 people from wolf level can take part. The game lasts around 2 hours.
