Work

The project aims to bring together Czech and international volunteers, people with or without disabilities, kids, youth or adults - just all! Volunteers will cooperate with Czech assistants and help their fellow campers with disabilities with daily tasks such as dressing, eating, personal hygiene and participation in the camp program. During the camp (18.-24.8.2024), volunteers might work longer hours, nevertheless, there will be enough time for rest and trips before and after the camp. Please bring your favourite superhero costume. You don't have to buy it, it can be handmade.

Accomodation and food

Volunteers will be accommodated in the main building of the complex, there are rooms for 6-7 people with beds and bedsheets. Bathrooms and toilets are common on each floor. There is also a washing machine. WiFi is available. Volunteers will eat together with assistants and clients ā€“ breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks will be provided by the accommodation facility. The kitchen will not be available to the volunteers, inform us in advance about any special diet you might have so we can accommodate it.

Location and leisure

The location of the camp is in a recreation area near Mukarov. There are all amenities (rooms, dining room, swimming pool, outdoor sports field). Nevertheless, the area is located in nature and there are no public amenities in the immediate vicinity. In case of need, you can ask the campleaders and they will drive to a store or pharmacy in the closest town.

There are several possibilities for sports activities right in the complex - indoor swimming pool, football, playground, table tennis, beach volleyball court. Volunteers can go on a trip to the nearest bigger cities such as Mlada Boleslav or Liberec. We will also organize an intercultural evening and volunteers will have an opportunity to present their countries.

Project hosted by

This project takes place in the recreational area in the small village of Borovice in cooperation with the local NGO Centre for All. Centre for All organizes free-time activities and summer camps for children and youth with and without disabilities. The aim of the project is to help the Centre for All to prepare and run a summer camp for people with or without disabilities. At this project, you will actively contribute to the achievement of UN SDG10 Reduced Inequalities.

Directions to meeting point

The meeting point will be directly at the Vaclav Havel Airport at 16:30 at the Airport Express bus stop. Volunteers will be picked up by car and taken to the accommodation.

Additional comments

Volunteers will learn about different types of disabilities (there will be clients with autism, Down syndrome, wheelchair users, etc). Through their trained campleaders, they will learn how to assist the people in their daily lives. Volunteers will have a chance to learn some basic Czech phrases ā€“ which will be helpful during the camp.

Requirements

A detailed motivation letter, a medical certificate stating that the volunteer is fit to work with children and a sworn declaration of the nonexistence of any criminal record sent with the application form are required. Alcohol consumption and smoking are prohibited during the camp, during the free time it is allowed for 18+ volunteers only under specific conditions and after the agreement with the campleaders.

We are especially looking for outgoing and creative volunteers with good communication skills who enjoy working with youth. The camo theme is Back in Time. This project is also suitable for volunteers with fewer opportunities under the program Volunteering for All.
This project is supported by the EU program European Solidarity Corps. Some of the conditions differ from the usual projects; there will be detailed info provided after your acceptance. For more info about ESC visit https://europa.eu/youth/solidarity_en.
