MOMS AND KIDS

SPORTS

 

Hiking: This dedicated group explores the Luxembourgish outdoors by hiking. The women hike an average of 8-10 kilometers rain, sun or snow. They move at a pace brisk enough to keep warm in the winter while still allowing for conversation. The group hikes in a different location each Friday morning, with a pre-hike each Monday.

 

The Ramblers: A ramble is a longer, slower hike. Participants traverse the trails from about 20 kilometers. They stop for a picnic lunch. This group meets once a month.

 

City Walk: Luxembourg is an eminently walkable city. Get to know its ins, outs and back ways - great exercise and a lovely group of ladies. Walks are typically scheduled weekly.

 


 

CRAFTING

 

Scrapbooking: Like to scrapbook? Whether you’re working on a traditional paper scrapbook or a digital one, enjoy the work with friends! It’s always nice to get some advice and new ideas. This group meets twice a month at the Clubhouse.

 

Sit & Stitch: Bring your handmade project to the Clubhouse and work on it while socializing. This group focuses on stitch crafts that don't require a machine, like embroidery and knitting.

 

Quilting: Whether you're an experience quilter or a non-sewer, we'd love you to come help us make quilts for injured US service members. It's a social time where you can practice a craft and build a tangible piece of comfort for someone who's far from home.
