Help renovate the old rural train station in the pretty village of Louchy-Montfand!
The commune of Louchy-Montfand continues to renovate its historic monuments with a third youth volunteer project. The aim of this new project is to restore the old "tacot" train station, highlighting the history of this rural train which from 1910 to 1949 crossed the beautiful countryside of the Montagne Bourbonnaise between Vichy and Roanne, transporting passengers, merchandise and livestock.

The project will involve restoring the walls of the shelter with traditional lime plaster, on which photos and panels explaining the history of the rural train will then be placed, as well as rebuilding a wooden bench and table to enable local residents and associations to use the site as a meeting place.

Alongside two camp leaders, including a technical animator, who will guide you throughout the project, you'll discover traditional plastering techniques and woodworking, and learn how to handle tools.

Calling all handicraft enthusiasts and history lovers to participate in this workcamp!

Kost og logi

You will be accompanied by two camp leaders throughout your stay.
You'll be accommodated in individual tents on a grassy field near the football stadium (at your disposal in the stadium : toilets, showers and changing rooms). You'll have access to the village community centre, with its communal kitchen and large living room. This will be reserved for your group and closed to the public.

The group will be sharing the cleaning chores and preparing meals together. The budget will be allocated to the group leader and you will participate in the preparation of meals, prioritising products from the market and local producers. WIFI will be available at the town hall.

Beliggenhed og fritid

The village is located a few kilometres away from Saint-Pourcain-sur-Sioule, in the district of Allier, heart of the Bourbonnais region. Small town of 5 000 residents, Saint-Pourçain spreads along the river Sioule in a lovely countryside landscape. During your stay, you will enjoy the town's summery energy and the countryside right on its doorstep (hiking, swimming in the lakes, etc.). During your stay, you will be able to discover the area and take part in local celebrations!

Beliggenhed og fritid

The new municipality of Saint-Genix-Les-Villages is located on the Mont Tournier range, itself situated in the Savoyard Foreland in the Savoie department. Saint-Maurice de Rotherens occupies a vast agricultural and forested plateau on the southern slopes of Mont Tournier (600 to 850m altitude). The village overlooks the Rhône valley to the west, with fine views over the Guiers valley and the Chartreuse massif to the south. Its proximity to the Rhône means you can organise a swim during your stay, in consultation with the activity leaders. A paradise for hikers, the commune is at the junction of 2 long-distance hiking routes: the GR9, which links Vézelay to Italy and is used by pilgrims to Assisi, and the GR65, which is used by pilgrims to Santiago de Compostela coming from Geneva and heading for Le Puy en Velay. If you love hiking, this is the destination for you! The village's history is also marked by the figure of Roberto Clemens Galletti di Cadilhac, known as a pioneer of wireless telegraphy. In the heart of the village, a museum, the Galletti Radio Museum, is dedicated to this pioneer who, in 1912, built the only antenna of its kind in the world, making it possible to correspond with the United States of America from the Fils site.

Arrangeret af

We are in our first year of partnership with the town hall of Saint-Genix-Les-Villages. Since the 1st of January 2019, the new commune of Saint-Genix-Les-Villages has been created by merging the communes of Gresin, Saint-Genix-sur-Guiers and Saint-Maurice-de-Rotherens. The area offers a rich environment, particularly for walking. The commune is committed to promoting its built heritage. The Mauchamp Castle, owned by Luc Revel, is on the itinerary of the "Balcons de Saint Maurice de Rotherens" hiking trail. It is necessary to take a diversion from the main path to linger around the remains of the castle, which offers a sumptuous panoramic view of the local environment and an insight into the area's medieval history.

Arbejde

This summer's work will focus on the development of a landscape and the maintenance and restoration of a hiking trail.
The mound is located in the center of the hamlet, a grassy area that is now hindered by stonework structures that are no longer useful. To reduce the impact of construction on nature, the association wishes to offer more natural spaces to the people it welcomes in the hamlet. You will then participate in the creation of a relaxing space in the middle of the village life for all the people who stay here. The structures are being demolished before the summer in order to be able to offer a work site for both landscaping and furniture.
You will also be working on a hiking trail to allow you to discover the natural areas of the Hautes-Alpes, its fauna and flora by rehabilitating the trail (clearing, signposting, etc.) and providing educational support (information panels) along the way. You will thus be able to allow everyone to enjoy this hike again. A specialized technical supervisor will be at your side to provide you with advice and techniques. You will work approximately 30 hours per week in the morning.

Kost og logi

You will be in individual tents, which we provide, as well as mattresses, on the camping areas of the hamlet of Vaunières, with access to showers, toilets, and the kitchen. There is no WIFI but you will meet people from all over the world ! You will take turns to cook, so that we can taste several specialties ! Here, we are careful about what we eat. In order to reduce our environmental impact, we try to eat a maximum of local products and we eat meat twice a week. The daily life is organized together: organization of the menus (vegetarian, vegan and other specific diets are possible), shopping, activities, etc. Bring a mattress, a good comforter (the nights can be cold) and a pillow. To be adapted to your needs.

Beliggenhed og fritid

Le Hameau de Vaunières is 23km away from the city of Veynes (05400).

Leisure activities: We will be in an exceptional location to discover the joys of hiking among the mountains, its rivers, its lakes, the farmers markets, and festive events organized in the surrounding villages (depending on programming). As a group, we will decide the activities and outings that we want to set up (subject to distance). Once a week, the welcome center generally organises a musical evening with homemade wood fired pizzas. Once or twice a week, we organize with our vehicles some grocery shopping outings.

Arrangeret af

This year, we want to do some landscaping in Vaunières, a hamlet like no other!
In the heart of the Hautes Alpes, the association Les Villages des Jeunes has been managing, animating, and renovating the Vaunières welcome center since 1964! It is an old mountain hamlet, which has become a steppingstone place for local youth and adults, but also a place for French and international volunteers. Vaunières is a vacation spot for families, tourists, and groups, who come to enjoy the calm of the mountains and the dynamics of the place.
The workcamps that we organize at Vaunières with volunteers from all over the world allow us to reinforce the cultural diversity of our action and to make this site a place open to the world, where people of all ages and all social and cultural backgrounds agree to meet by working together and sharing a collective life.

Beliggenhed og fritid

Biar lies 39 km from Alicante in the mountain range called Sierra Mariola, Biar was once called Apiarium which comes from the Roman word for beehive because this area was rich in aromatic herbs which made for a very prosperous production of honey.

It is a small and nice town which has its places of historical interest, beautiful natural sites and landscapes.

From the Ogival Aqueduct we can contemplate one of the most characteristic and beautiful landscapes of Biar, to which is added the majestic presence of the Biar castle. The Ogival Aqueduct is about 70 meters long. Its antiquity is documented in 1490.

The Muslim Castle, which presides over Biar old centre, dates back to the 12th century and is one of the main attractions of the village. It was declared a National Monument in 1931 and it preserves the most ancient Almohad Vault from the 12th century. Today, the Castle has interpretive panels and sound systems for a better understanding of its history.

Biar preserves one of the most important monumental ensembles in the Valencia Region. If you walk around its historic centre, you may discover a labyrinth of narrow and steep passages that spread from the Castle in all directions.

Due to its location, the Biar mountain offers the possibility of practicing all kinds of outdoor sports, observing and enjoying the landscape. For lovers of hiking, the areas of Fontanella, Reconco and Penya Tallá are highly appreciated. All of them can be easily accessed from the town center. Most of the paths spread from the Sanctuary of Nuestra Señora de Gracia, a well maintained recreational area. From the “Paseo del Plátano” (The Plane-Tree Walk), you can take a leisurely stroll up to the Sanctuary.

Arrangeret af

Asociación Carcajada de Villena. This association tries to promote summer educational camps for kids with less opportunities of Villena. Villena is a medium size town hall located 50 km away from Alicante. It basically lives on agriculture and it is far away from the influence of tourism, so economical level is quite low. The city hall of Biar, that is a very close town with similar characteristics is also supporting with the lodging of the volunteers.

We will continue the development of the "prisoners' garden" and the consolidation of the ruins of the former German kitchen, with pointing and many other techniques that you will learn.

The program will consist of learning masonry techniques and garden design, but above all international and intercultural exchanges, all of this in a good mood!

Kost og logi

Accommodation will be in collective tents, with boys and girls separated (don't forget your sleeping bag!)
A village house is at your disposal for the living space, the eating place as well as the toilets and showers. The house also has a washing machine that you can use.
You will share the various collective tasks and prepare meals together.

Beliggenhed og fritid

Ham is a town of about 7,000 inhabitants located in the Hauts-de-France, in the east of the Somme, in the heart of the former Picardie region. The town is 1h30 from Paris, 1h from Amiens and 25 min from Saint-Quentin.

Because of its position during the First World War, the region hosts today many places of memory and commemoration. Other tourist attractions close to the town also reflect the history of the region, such as Péronne (25 min) with its old castle and museum, or Noyon (20 min) with its medieval historic center. A visit to the city of Compiègne (imperial city) and Amiens (capital of Picardie) are also on the visit program!

Arrangeret af

Built in the 13th century, this medieval fortress was a strategic point to defend the borders during various conflicts. It evolved with time and quickly became a prison welcoming prisoners such as Jeanne d’Arc, or, later, Prince Louis Napoleon Bonaparte (future Napoleon III). Almost completely destroyed by the German army in 1917, it is now in a state of ruin. For more information, you can consult their website : http://chateau-de-ham.over-blog.com/

Since 1972, the Association des Amis du Château de Ham has been fighting to preserve and enhance the historical site. They host integration work sites, organize flea markets and exhibitions, and even transform the site into a theater. For several years, Concordia has been helping the association with the restoration of the monument through volunteer workcamps involving local and international youth.
