With the new version of the Youth Promotion and Participation Act in March 2019, the Berlin Senate increased or reintroduced funding for youth work in Berlin and especially for recreational measures. As a result, the Roter Baum, as a long-standing holiday camp provider, is now able to offer funded trips for Berlin children and youths. We are in regular discussion with each of the Berlin districts in order to agree on funding here as well. For the time being, we have contracts with the following districts: Marzahn-Hellersdorf, Treptow-Köpenick, Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg, Neukölln, Lichtenberg, Steglitz-Zehlendorf and Tempelhof-Schöneberg. We are in discussion with other districts. So please check our website again in the near future if your district is not listed or contact us.
The Red Tree would also like to offer an additional discount to particularly low-income families. Those who can show a valid Berlin Pass will receive an additional 50% discount on the total price.
Here you can find out who is entitled to the Berlin Pass and how to apply for it. When registering your child, please send us a current copy of the valid Berlin Pass or, alternatively, a current Alg2 notification.
Accordingly, three participation fees are shown for all trips:
Participation fee 1 covers our costs for the holiday trip and applies if your child does not come from any of the districts listed above. If you have any questions or are unsure, please call us.
If your child comes from one of the above-mentioned districts, you only have to pay a small part of the actual costs thanks to the Youth Promotion and Participation Act. Proof is provided by stating the child's (official) place of residence. If this is in one of the districts, the funding automatically applies.
Berlinpass or Alg2 proof (TNB3):
If your child comes from one of the above-mentioned districts and you can also show a valid Berlin Pass or current ALG2 proof, you will receive an additional 50% discount. Proof is provided by stating the child's (official) place of residence and a copy of the documents.
In case of financing problems, please contact us and we will find a solution together.
Please transfer the respective participant fee to the following account:

Reason for transfer: Name and contact number of the child, event code of the holiday trip
