This year again, the workcamp participants will be helping out at the Celtic Festival, which will take place on July 22 and 23 in Nagold. During the festival, “Highland Games” are organised and many different “clans” come to compete on various tasks. The games usually demand strength, agility and a lot of team cooperation. You will be able to participate to the games as the YOUZ team too. The Highland Games are much appreciated and attract a lot of visitors! In addition, the festival programme includes many musical events and of course, a lot of food and refreshments stalls. Your role will be to help the local clubs and associations participating in the festival with the preparations. These can be for music, dance and international food, painting festival signs, as well as constructing some of the wooden structures for the festival grounds. On other days, you will work on various environmental tasks within the community of Nagold.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You will be staying in the youth centre (YOUZ), a very big and spacious building located in Nagold’s city centre. You will be sleeping in two different sleeping rooms with beds (you don’t need to bring anything, the beds have bed sheets, covers and pillows). To prepare meals, you will use the centre’s large kitchen, which has all the equipment you need. WIFI is provided in the house. Showers are available at the swimming pool nearby. The YOUZ has many more rooms and offices so you will meet a lot of people! You can take a look at their website here:
Your group of volunteers will be responsible for grocery shopping and cooking together. The food will be bought with the camp budget and everybody will take turns for cooking, washing the dishes and cleaning. In order to reduce our carbon footprint on the planet, we encourage volunteers to reduce meat and try more sustainable dishes.

Lage und Freizeit

Nagold is located in the beautiful Black Forest and has about 22,000 inhabitants. As the youth centre is located in the inner city of Nagold, it is a meeting point for young people aged between 14 and 20 years old. You will find many possibilities to spend your free time in the youth centre itself (i.e. rooms and equipment to play music, to dance and make video and many other things). The region around Nagold has a lot to offer as well. On the weekend, you can easily visit cities like Stuttgart or Tübingen with public transportation. The area around Nagold with the beautiful nature of the Black Forest is perfect for hiking. In addition, activities like horse riding, swimming (at the local swimming pool or in lakes) and play beach volleyball can all be organised. Last but not least, the local youth will be around most of the time, so you can expect to get in touch and exchange with them!

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The “YOUZ” is not only Nagold’s youth centre, it is also a non-profit organisation working with children and young people. During the whole year, the YOUZ team organises events, workshops, school support, holiday programmes… and many more things for children and young people. They are also one of IBG’s oldest partners! For more than 25 years, they have been organizing very successful workcamps with us, inviting volunteers to help them with different renovation tasks and, every second year, organizing the Celtic Festival.
