The hosting organisation organizes several type of camps (circus, philosophy and nature, campsites in caravan...) for children from 4 to 13 years old. It will be asked to the volunteers to lead games, to participate to evening games and to help the animation team to offer a serene and welcoming framework to children. Musicians, singers, dancers, acrobats, ventriloquists and others artists are warmly welcome!

Volunteers will also have the opportunity to work in the wooden village hosting every year hundreds of kids. This enchanting place is the fruit of the work and imagination of generations of kids and activity leaders, and today it extends considerably (more than 20 huts over 2 hectares, a bridge, an amphitheatre, a fence...) Tasks are fairly diversified so that there is something for every taste. The planning of activities will be developed progressively according to the progress of work, the weather, needs of the organisation and wishes of volunteers.
