From 06.07. to 13.07.2019 the OFV-camp took place at the coast of Hooksiel. 68 youth fire brigades from the districts Vechta, Oldenburg, Cloppenburg, Ammerland, Friesland and Wesermarsch participated. Since this camp is only held every three years, it is a real highlight for the young people of the junior fire brigades. Beside the fire-brigade-technical and sport-oriented competitions the fun stands for all participants naturally in the first place. In times of “Fridays for Future” it was an important concern for all the girls and boys of the JF Dinklage to reduce the amount of garbage that inevitably accumulates in a camp of this size. Without further ado, the plastic cups that were given out at mealtimes were replaced by the compostable returnable cups from Golden Compound, which we gladly made available to the Dinklagern.

We think it is a great that the youth fire brigade Dinklage is setting a good environmentally conscious example. Perhaps there are already some weirs in the next camp that follow the Dinklagern.
