International language camp is organized for teenagers by The Language School In Down-Town and the non-profit educational association Alternative Language Programs Satellite (ALP S) as part of their annual activities on multicultural issues for youth. The project s aim is to introduce the diversity of world cultures to the youth and provide them with good practices in intercultural communication by means of alternative English language practice which includes meetings, visits and direct contacts to young people from abroad. The project gets teens of 14 to 16 years old familiar with national traditions of the countries from all over the world, encourages them to develop their global thinking and individual initiative, tolerance and resistance to xenophobia and ethnic hatred. Camps give foreign participants a great chance to meet youngsters both from Estonia and other countries as well as to experience local life. This summer we offer you to participate in our new project called MATRIX . Camp participants will learn about different meanings of this word. Together, we will identify the ways how to improve the matrix of the modern world, how to become a better version of ourselves and how to develop our emotional intelligence. Camp participants will acquire life skills that they will need to create their own codes for personal matrices that will have power to change their life for the better. They are the smart matrices of our personalities, souls, love and success, well-being and happy life. Meetings with local and/or international professionals in the field will take place. Thematic photo and video contests for camp participants will be organized.

Ces dernières années, la forteresse s'est refaite une beauté ! Les bénévoles ont continué à faire des travaux de maçonnerie traditionelle sur les murs du château et ont développé le potager médiéval au pied de la tour du Seigneur. A vous de prendre le flambeau !



Inside a lovely little French village, the castle of Montaigu le Blin is an impressive medieval fortress, classified as Historical Monument. It is located on the top of a hill, overlooking the countryside. Since 2002, volunteers have been participating, every summer, to the restoration of the castle. These last years, the fortress has regained its beauty! Since the 80s, volunteers come every year to restore and protect the castle. These last couple of years, volunteers restored the castle walls using traditional masonry techniques and developped the medieval vegetable garden at the bottom of the Lord's tower. This year, it's your turn to live an experience back in time!

The project s aim is to introduce the diversity of world cultures to the youth and provide them with good practices in intercultural communication by means of alternative English language practice which includes meetings, visits and direct contacts to young people from abroad. The project gets teens of 14 to 16 years old familiar with national traditions of the countries from all over the world, encourages them to develop their global thinking and individual initiative, tolerance and resistance to xenophobia and ethnic hatred. Camps give foreign participants a great chance to meet youngsters both from Estonia and other countries as well as to experience local life. This summer we offer you to participate in our new project called MATRIX . Camp participants will learn about different meanings of this word. Together, we will identify the ways how to improve the matrix of the modern world, how to become a better version of ourselves and how to develop our emotional intelligence. Camp participants will acquire life skills that they will need to create their own codes for personal matrices that will have power to change their life for the better. They are the smart matrices of our personalities, souls, love and success, well-being and happy life. Meetings with local and/or international professionals in the field will take place.

The project initiated by Jaunatne smaidam / Youth for Smile, stemming from their 2010 Outdoor Education Center, is a commendable effort to foster environmental sustainability through an innovative sustainable farm-training center. This initiative aims to serve as a platform for the dissemination of information and knowledge about sustainability on both a local and global scale.

The project invites international volunteers to participate in a work camp that adopts a holistic approach to everyday life. Volunteers will engage in various tasks based on weather conditions and real needs, spanning fields such as agriculture, farming, restoration of natural areas, and traditional building preservation.

Key activities within the work camp include:

Permaculture Garden Development: Volunteers will work on creating and maintaining a permaculture garden, emphasizing sustainable and regenerative farming practices.

Animal Care: Volunteers will have the opportunity to care for animals on the farm, including sheep, goats, rabbits, etc. This involves building pasture paddocks and preparing food for the winter season.

Restoration of Natural Areas: The project involves restoring natural meadows by clearing them of bushes and purifying rivers from overgrowth, contributing to the preservation of local ecosystems.

Nature Path Creation: Volunteers will engage in creating a nature path in the forest by removing bushes and planting trees, enhancing the natural beauty of the area and providing educational opportunities.

In addition to these hands-on activities, the work camp will incorporate non-formal education sessions focused on eco-activism. These sessions aim to empower volunteers by developing their competencies to implement activities within their communities. The methodology for these educational sessions has been developed within the framework of the Erasmus+ project "Youth Action For Nature and Well-being" (www.yafnaw.eu).

Overall, the project represents a comprehensive and collaborative effort to address environmental sustainability through practical initiatives, education, and the engagement of international volunteers. The inclusion of various activities ensures a well-rounded experience for participants while contributing positively to the environment and local communities.

Kost og logi

Living conditions are very basic. Volunteers will be accommodated in a rural farm. Sleeping will be in tents provided by the organisers. We will provide mattresses as well. Toilets and washing facilities will be provided. Cooking will be done by volunteers themselves in the outdoor kitchen. Volunteers should bring their sleeping bags. Do not forget some traditional or typical food from your home country for the international evening.

Jaunatne smaidam / Youth for Smile is a non-profit, non-governmental youth organization founded in 2005. Our organization is dedicated to fostering the intellectual, creative, and personal development of young people through various initiatives. With a mission to create, experience, and be together, we aim to provide opportunities that empower local communities and contribute to the growth of youth on both local and international levels.

Our organization's primary goals are threefold: creating, experiencing, and being together. We strive to enable local communities to learn, participate, and self-realize (Creating), offer experiences at the local and international levels to promote personal development among young people (Experience), and cultivate an environment where young individuals can develop competencies for the growth of their communities (Being together).

The organization is committed to fulfilling these goals through a range of tasks and programs. These include:

1. Youth Initiatives: We actively develop and promote youth initiatives, fostering favorable conditions for intellectual and creative development.

2. Non-formal Education: Providing young people with opportunities to acquire essential life skills, knowledge, and competencies through non-formal education.

3. Leisure Time Activities: Offering opportunities for young individuals to make good use of their leisure time in meaningful ways.

4. Information Access: Ensuring young people have access to relevant information for their developmental needs.

To address the needs of youth with fewer opportunities, we implement outdoor education and adventure pedagogy through various non-formal education programs. Additionally, our international voluntary work camps program promotes intercultural learning, community development, and peace education.

In low-populated areas, we conduct mobile youth work, providing essential youth services where municipalities may not cover them. Advocacy at the regional level is a crucial aspect of our work, advocating for the quality of youth work and the development of participatory youth policy.

Furthermore, our active involvement in traditional folk and cultural events aims to introduce these aspects to the youth, preserving cultural heritage and fostering a sense of community. DIY workshops are organized to support young people in learning practical skills necessary for life.

While the organization was established in 2005, we have grown to be a values-based youth association with a significant impact on local communities and the personal development of young individuals. Our commitment to creating, experiencing, and being together drives our efforts to empower the youth and contribute to the well-being of the broader community.

The technical work that will be carried out in the field of work consists, in general, in different tasks related to the recovery of the old roads of the valley.
The followings are the main ones:
- Road clearing: mowing grass, bushes, etc., which grow in the spring to leave the roads comfortably passable on foot.
- Remove stones from the road: pick up stones that have fallen on the road and set them aside in an orderly manner at the edges to make the passage passable.
- Rebuild the simplest sections of dry stone wall: rebuild those walls that have fallen and are easily rebuildable.
- Improved signage with paint: review the tracking marks of the paths with paint according to the instructions given to us by the "Alt Pirineu" Natural Park.
- Improved paved sections: some trails have cobbled sections that have worn out, redo these sections in order to maintain the cobbled areas.

Kost og logi

The accommodation is in a terrain called "Llavaners", the campsite is at 1000m altitude near a small river and very isolated in the middle of nature. You should definitely be eager to have a (somehow) wild experience!

You’ll be spending your days in a campsite and you’ll be camping and sleeping in a tent, usually there’s 3-4 participants per tent and no separation gender.
Tents are basic, mainly there’s only space for sleeping or laying down. Tents will be provided by the organization and you’ll be sleeping on a mattress on the floor. You must bring your own sleeping bag (it’s highly recommended a good one as in the Pyrenees it can be cold at nights even in summer time) and mattress.
There are 2 dry toilets near the campsite. There’s no showers available in the camp. Mainly we have some quick-baths at the river with cold water or in the campsite, also cold water.
We strongly recommend bringing eco and biodegradable shower gel or shampoo.
No gender separation for showers, previous agreements will be done with the group. If needed, once or twice during the workcamp you’ll be able to go to Llagunes village (by foot, about 2h walking) and take a shower there in the shelter.
The volunteers are in charge of cooking and to keep the area clean and safe: they will be split in groups, each group will prepare the food for one day, and they will be rotating everyday, so camping in the field and cooking by their own.
In general, lunch and dinner will be warm meals, but exceptions can be made in case of a trekking route or spending the whole day out of the campsite.
But the camp is isolated and there is no possibility to buy food in the area.

There’s no WiFi at the campsite. However, there's mobile phone signal in the area so you should be able to connect to 3G or 4G almost everywhere.
"Llavaners terrain is located near Sort, about 5 km away. It is accessed by an asphalted road up to 1 km and the last one stretch, is a track that maintains the Natural Park of the High Pyrenees.

The organization in charge of the work camp is "Balmes Blancs", a non-profit association created in 2010 with the aim of offering unique activities in nature with the aim of presenting new places, new people and deepen, thus, the knowledge of the Catalan territory.
Since its inception, it has organized various activities such as snowshoe outings with animal footprints, astronomical discoveries, kayak outings to discover marine fauna, rafting drops, hiking in the mountains or leveling and safety workshops, among others.
In 2013 the association began working in the Siarb Valley. From that moment on, Balmes Blancs began to focus its activities around this valley and, among other things, guided visits to the "Despoblat de Santa Creu" de Llagunes, visits to the trenches on the Pallars front and to the Vilamur bunkers, discoveries of geology, activities of flora and fauna in the environment.
At the same time, the refuge promotes hiking with the creation of signposted routes around Llagunes, as well as a series of actions aimed at recovering the heritage of the Siarb Valley, to discover life rural in Pallars Sobirà, and in the rest of the Pyrenees.

Agriculture and breeding and/or milk processing activities are also planned.
All this is aimed at regenerating the fabric of the local and resident community of all ages. Thus being actors in a local folk/material culture, if only for a limited time.
The aim of the camp is also to leave room for relations with locals and share common moments to acquire or experience knowledge from the elders in order to raise awareness of the value of the 'heritage of community knowledge'.

Arrangeret af

This proposal results from the collaboration with the Ali del Vento association, which operates in the field of horseback riding both with lessons inside and with rides. The activity carried out also takes on strong social value in the exercise of Animal Assisted Interventions (IAA) in favor of the disabled and on the vision of an ethical human-horse perspective and ethological approach, not based on the exploitation of the animal but on its respect and well-being as fundamental elements.In fact, all of the school s horses have special histories and left bad experiences behind. The recovered well-being of these horses constitutes a wonderful combination with the happiness of children, disabled and non-disabled, who can enjoy the relationship with these beautiful animals. Among the goals is also the development of affordable horseback riding for everyone (including adults): horseback riding can be a sport within everyone s reach and not a luxury.

Rejsevejledning til mødested

At the Ferrara train station at 16:00. Or at the field office at Casa IBO in Via Boschetto, 1 Ferrara at 17:00.To organise your departure trip on the last day of the camp, we recommend to book a train or leave the camp until 12:00.

Discover the Alps from Valloire this summer! Concordia and the town of Valloire are offering you the chance to participate in an international volunteer workcamp in one of Savoy's most beautiful resorts. Combine business with pleasure by getting involved in a project that highlights the local environment and Savoyard heritage.

You will be working on the creation of a path in an undergrowth area that will give locals and tourists access to Valloire's pump-track: a loop track made up of bumps and banked turns that can be used with a variety of sports equipment, including mountain bikes and BMX bikes.
You don't need any special skills to take part in this project. All you need is a good dose of motivation and a good mood !

Kost og logi

You will be accommodated in individual tents at the Valloire campsite. There are toilets and showers on site. The municipality will provide a part of the village hall, which is less than 200 metres from the campsite. We will set up a kitchen and a living area for group time, which is also a shelter in case of bad weather. Together, you will help to organise group life (cleaning, activities, etc.) and take it in turns to prepare meals using locally sourced products. As far as possible, we will promote vegetarian meals using local, seasonal products, while ensuring that the diets of all participants are respected and that local gastronomy is discovered.

Wifi access points are available free of charge in certain areas of the resort, as they are at the campsite. There is also a washing machine.

Beliggenhed og fritid

Situated in the Savoie department, in the Auvergne Rhône-Alpes region, the commune of Valloire covers 17 hamlets in the heart of the Tarentaise massif and is located near the Italian border. In the centre of the village, the altitude is 1400 metres. But if you like a bit of height, the Col du Galibier rises to 2642 metres! It's the perfect place to discover some exceptional scenery.

Numerous hikes await you, including the one to Lac de Cerces. In the immediate vicinity, there are a number of lakes where you can take a refreshing swim. And if you're keen on heritage, you can discover the unusual Fort du Télégraphe. When it comes to gastronomy, be sure to (re)discover the Savoyard cheeses produced on site!

The resort offers a wide variety of sports and cultural facilities (swimming pool, cinema, media library, etc.) as well as convenience shops.

Arrangeret af

Valloire is a tourist resort in both summer and winter. It is a welcoming resort that regularly organises numerous events to help visitors discover the richness of its territory and Savoyard culture. Throughout the year, locals and tourists come together in a friendly atmosphere that combines access to both leisure activities and traditions. It is with the desire to help you discover this resort in a different way that the commune is organising a third international volunteer work camp, following two very successful editions in 2022 and 2023.

If you are aged between 15 and 17 and would like to take part in this work camp, contact Concordia's international work camp officer in Rhône Alpes (chantiers.rhone-alpes@concordia.fr). Two places are reserved for local young people to encourage exchanges and encounters.

Rejsevejledning til mødested

Meet in the centre of Valloire in the late afternoon.
There is a regular shuttle bus service (booking recommended) from Saint-Michel-Valloire station 17 km away (access by train from Lyon Part-Dieu, Chambéry-Challes Les Eaux or Modane).
If you prefer to travel by car, Valloire is one of the few resorts to offer two main routes in summer: via the Col du Télégraphe (Maurienne Valley) and the Col du Galibier (Briançonnais).

Nearby airports: Lyon/St Exupéry (190 km) or Chambéry (100 km).

For sleeping, remember to take a warm sleeping bag (comfort 10°C) and a pillowcase (you can put things in it and easily make a pillow). You should also bring a backpack (in addition to your luggage), comfortable trainers and a pair of flip-flops. You'll also need to pack these essential accessories: a mobile phone charger, hiking poles (not compulsory, but recommended), a water bottle, a set of bandages and a headlamp or torch. Friendly activities will be organised in collaboration with our entertainers and according to your wishes. If you'd like to share a little of your culture (cooking recipes, traditional stories, unusual objects, music...), don't hesitate to take a little piece of your country or region in your backpack and a small Bluetooth speaker!
