Arbeit

Over water - over land: this is the name of Europe's first cross-border sculpture trail. You will take care of several sculptures on the German-Swiss sculpture trail and restore them to their original state. Weather and people have left their mark: The stone of the sculptures needs to be brushed to remove moss and lichen, and some sculptures are also sprayed with graffiti. For others, the subsurface needs to be renewed or maintained. The explanatory plates for the objects will also be replaced. In addition, you will completely renew the barbecue area, which is part of the 9km long trail. This area is intended to invite people to combine arts, nature and community.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You will be accommodated in the local multipurpose hall in the centre of the village which is otherwise used for sports and events. This offers plenty of space, a small kitchen and enough sanitary facilities for everyone. Camp beds are provided. Please bring your own sleeping bag and pillow (if required).

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

Hohentengen am Hochrhein lies in the south of Germany, in a kind of bubble surrounded on three sides by Switzerland. Only the Rhine separates the village from Switzerland. The village offers unspoilt nature, numerous sports and leisure facilities (beach volleyball, swimming pools, water sports ...).

Mountain ranges on the northern edge of the municipality, the Rhine Valley opens up to the south, the Rhine glistens in the plain and the Alps in Switzerland greet you on the horizon when visibility is good. With its 3,600 inhabitants, Hohentengen offers the entire infrastructure you could wish for: supermarkets, shops, pubs and much more.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

In 2000, 12 internationally renowned artists realised ideas and thoughts on the theme of borders - dividing and uniting - in sculptures. Embedded in the marvellous landscape of the High Rhine, this path is a cultural symbol of friendship and connects the places on both sides of the river and the German-Swiss border. https://skulpturenweg.de/

Now, almost 25 years after its construction, the sculpture trail needs some maintenance. The citizens of Hohentengen would be delighted if this is done with the help of international volunteers completely in the spirit of the path's artistic message.

Anreise zum Treffpunkt

First you have to travel to Waldshut. Please check www.bahn.com for a connection from anywhere in Germany or Switzerland. In Waldshut, you will find bus #7340 to Hohentengen. There is a bus every two hours on Sundays. The last bus leaves Waldshut on Sundays at 7.30 pm, so please arrange your travel in a way to be on time for this connection at the latest. Get off at the bus stop "Kath. Pfarramt, Hohentengen".

Arbeit

The Family Center and, more generally, the community of Lauchringen, are counting on your help to continue the work of previous Workcamp groups. You will work on improving the outdoor infrastructure of the "Adventure Land", an inclusive place for children and school groups. In addition, you will improve, maintain and beautify some of the town's public spaces.

In the Adventure Land, you will:
• Design a new stage set up for the natural stage in the Adventure Land’s garden. Your tasks will be also to build up raised garden beds, to take care of the vegetable garden, to weed and plant flowers.
• Build up some wooden huts, which will be used for the children’s holiday programme in the Adventure land.
• Do other building works, depending on the team’s plan. These will involve working with wood, nailing screwing, sanding down and painting.

In other parts of Lauchringen you will:
• Build a bench in the ‘’Generations Park’’ behind the Family Center. This bench will be there to promote social interaction while hiding the front of the underground parking lot, which is considered not very pretty by the residents of Lauchringen.
• Do other creative and supporting works, depending on the construction yard team’s needs.

The work will be led by a professional instructor, so no previous experience is needed. You will work around 30 hours per week, somewhere between 8am to 4pm from Monday to Friday with a lunchbreak.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You will live inside the building on the “Adventure Land”: There are two big rooms with sleeping mats, a kitchen, and sanitary facilities. Please, bring a sleeping bag!

There is also a big common room that you can use for your activities. On most days, groups of children will come to the Adventure Land in the afternoon, and you will need to share the common room and the sanitary facilities with them. The two rooms for sleeping, however, are private and reserved only for your group.

In the Adventure Land, there is a washing machine, which can be used in agreement with the local workers, and there is Wifi. Your group of volunteers will be responsible for grocery shopping and cooking together. During the week, you will have a rapid cold lunch during your break. In the evening and at the weekend, you will have more time to cook warm meals from different countries.

Food will be bought with the camp budget and everybody will take turns for cooking 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

Lauchringen is small and pretty town in the very south of Germany. It is located inside the Black Forest, which means you will be surrounded by beautiful nature. In your free time, you can go on hikes and explore the Black Forest.

Lauchringen is very close to Swiss border and not far from places like Constance Lake, Rhein Falls or the university town of Freiburg. In Lauchringen itself, you can find everything you need for your everyday life: supermarkets, bakeries, cafés, etc...

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The community of Lauchringen is going to host an international Workcamp for the sixth time. The project will take place in cooperation with the “Familienzentrum” (Family Centre). The Centre offers various programs for people of all ages to meet, exchange and educate themselves. In 2018, they built the “Adventure Land”: A big house with sleeping facilities, a kitchen, sanitary facilities, a workshop space, and a big common room.

The place offers an afternoon program for children and youngsters and hosts groups during school holidays. The Adventure Land is a very special and inclusive place, from which everyone has something to learn!

Anreise zum Treffpunkt

Arbeit

You will help the organisers in all phases of the festival. On the first days, the main tasks will be setting up the stage and the campground on the site of the festival. You will also help to create the always charming and handmade decorations of the festival site and help with the disassembly of the whole structure and surroundings on the last day. While the festival is running, you should be available to the organisation and will be asked to assist in different areas: bar, stage, organisation, catering etc. You will work closely with the local people from the association! There is a plan for the build-up of the festival, nevertheless the schedule will be adapted to the always changing logistics of the event and you are expected to be flexible, patient and work autonomously within this plan. Volunteers should be prepared to work long and unusual hours, but also have some time between their shifts, which can be used to explore the festival and enjoy the music! Speaking or understanding basic German will be a plus!

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You will stay at the local brewery! It is a small and very basic accommodation not far from the festival site that does not provide much comfort, but a very unique charm. You will all sleep in a big room at the brewery, usually used for concerts, and sleep on camp beds. Bear in mind that there will usually be a lot of people walking around and making noise from early in the morning to have everything ready for the festival! The final ceremony afterwards for all the helpers of the festival will also take place there. During the festival food will be provided by the food stands throughout the day.

Lage und Freizeit

Pegnitz is a small town in Franconia, Bavaria, near Nuremberg. You can find medieval and historic buildings and churches in the centre of the city. The city is known for its beers: it has a long tradition in brewery and the locals are very proud of it. The Bavarian region, in which Pegnitz is located, is called “Little Switzerland” due to its beautiful surrounding that invites extended adventures and hiking trips in the region. There are all kinds of trails and possibilities to experience the unique nature.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The local association Waldstock e.V. (https://waldstock.de/) promotes local youth activities in the small town of Pegnitz. Its members are very motivated and involved in organizing projects like concerts, film festivals or soccer cups. For more than 20 years, they have been coordinating the “Waldstock” festival, a so called “Umsonst und Draussen” - festival (“outside & free of charge”), which has become an important part of the cultural life in the town of Pegnitz and the region. Since 2013 the festival is supported by a small group of international Workcamp volunteers, who can enjoy the truly unique experience of becoming a part of the busy festival team. Here you can find a sneak peek on last years’ festival: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gst3Wuj6is4 .

Anreise zum Treffpunkt

From Nuremberg main station there is a regional train (RE) to Bayreuth. It takes 37 minutes to get to Pegnitz. From Pegnitz train station it is an only about 1km walk to the accommodation: https://goo.gl/maps/GVscNqPkSMGtjt2V6

Arbeit

The town of Bopfingen invites an international Workcamp for the seventh time this year! International Workcamps have helped with building the complex almost every year. A couple years back, researchers found archaeological evidence from the Celtic people that used to live here thousands of years ago in the Iron Age. The town’s project for the next years is to rebuild some of the houses in Celtic style to show tourists how the Celts may have lived in this area.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You will be staying at a local gym hall at about 10 minutes walking distance from the city centre and 15 minutes from the train station. You will all sleep in the very big main room of the gym hall. Camp beds are provided but please bring your own sleeping bag! In the gym hall there is also a kitchen which you can use for cooking, tables and chairs, different toilets which can be separated by gender and one bathroom with one shower.

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

Bopfingen is a small town in southern Germany. It has a beautiful centre with a lot of houses in old German style. What makes Bopfingen special is the hill next to the town which is called “Ipf” with its flat plateau on the top. The “Ipf” has an important historical meaning in this area. In former times, the Celts lived there and until today a lot of archaeologists and historians come to explore the region. It is surrounded by beautiful nature where you can go for a walk or hike.

Around Bopfingen, you will find various museums, the romantic historic city of Nördlingen, and the Ries (a large circular meteor impact crater with a diameter of 24 km). If you would like to visit a bigger city, Ulm is not far away with its famous cathedral and the highest church tower in the world.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

We invite 12 international volunteers to help continue the construction of the Celtic housing complex in Bopfingen. So far, six workcamp groups, local volunteers of the community of Bopfingen and a team of professional craftsmen have been working on the three houses of the Celtic housing complex. Your task will be to continue the work there by finishing the walls and floors.

The working place is set on the top of the hill “Ipf”, so you will be working outside a lot with a wonderful view over the region. All the materials you work with are natural materials like clay, wood, and stone. The work will be led by a professional instructor, so no previous experience is needed. Expect manual work! You will work around 30 hours per week, somewhere between 8am to 4pm from Monday to Friday with a 1-2 hour lunchbreak.

Anreise zum Treffpunkt

Please, try and arrive at Bopfingen train station between 1pm and 7pm on July 12th. Find the best connection on the German railway company's website: https://www.bahn.com/en

Arbeit

PEACE is the main theme of this project. The workcamp combines volunteering, learning from history, thinking about peace and the exchange with the local villagers in a special way.

Volunteering: There will be various smaller tasks in Hötensleben. You will be doing some maintenance work at the border memorial, mowing and building new wooden seating areas. Other small jobs for the local infrastructure will be added.
Learning from history: You will not only work on the border memorial, but will of course also be given a lot of background information on the history of the Iron Curtain and the division of Germany, as well as going on excursions to other thematically relevant places of interest.

Thinking about peace: What is Peace for you? When and how is peace in danger? Share your personal point of view and the reality in your home country with other volunteers and with local villagers.

Exchange with local villagers: Peace will be one topic to share and to discuss, but you will also get to know local associations and be able to exchange ideas about everyday life today. They are very excited to meet you and will be glad to share stories with you about their experience in this border area. It would be great if you can speak a bit of German and/or are able to communicate with a phone translator:

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You will stay in the former village hall that is renovated now and includes several holiday apartments’. They offer a quite comfortable stay and ensure enough room for everyone. There are different sleeping rooms with beds provided and a good equipped kitchen as well. Wifi-acess is limited. Bear in mind that the ground floor of the building is used for different activites during the week, and don’t be scared if you see some unfamiliar faces roaming around!

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

Hötensleben is a little village with about 2,500 inhabitants. International workcamps have been taking place there for some 25 years, so local inhabitants are looking forward to welcome the volunteers. Many activities will be done together with locals, e.g. the voluntary fire brigade of Hötensleben. Volunteers should be interested in German contemporary history. We will work at and visit historical places and commemoration sites related to Germany’s history.

You will be given bicycles so that you can be mobile in your free time and, for example, go to the swimming pool.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

You will be hosted in a very special village. From 1961 to 1989, the Wall with its martial border fortifications ran right next to the village. It divided Germany into two parts and was part of the so-called Iron Curtain. The people of Hötensleben lived in a restricted zone for almost 30 years and always had the Wall in view. To this day, 400 metres of the border fortifications have been preserved as a memorial and are visited by many visitors. Here you can find an impression of the border memorial: http://www.grenzdenkmal.com

Anreise zum Treffpunkt

Please arrange your travel in a way that you can take the last bus of the day from Oschersleben to Hötensleben: It is departing at 6.30 pm from Oschersleben. For train connections from anywhere to Oschersleben, please check www.bahn.com . For those missing this connection we will organise one later pick up in Schöningen ZOB in the evening (take a train to Helmstadt first, then a bus to Schöningen).

Weitere Infos

Questions about war and peace, migration and its causes, isolation and violence are unfortunately still very topical issues today. This project in Hötensleben gives you the opportunity to learn more about the time of the Iron Curtain and the division of Germany and to reflect on what peace means to you and how you can contribute to it. At the end, you will present your personal perspective on the topic of "peace" to the local villagers and discuss it with them. German speakers are therefore particularly welcome.

Anforderungen

Please add a short motivation letter to your application, describing your interest in this special project. You should be able to ride a bicycle!

Arbeit

This youth exchange is about helping to maintain a beautiful biosphere area while learning about “Waldpädagogik” (forest education)! During two weeks, you will support the forest school “Waldschulheim Indelhausen”, a place of non-formal environmental education for school classes.

This is a special project for nature lovers and people interested in learning about nature protection work and how to pass on important knowledge about forests to future generations. In the mornings you will work outside (2,5 to 3h) with the foresters, helping protect the surrounding biosphere area and gaining experience and know-how about how to preserve a forest.

In the afternoons you will participate to different workshops about themes such as climate change, the forest ecosystem and forest economy or biodiversity conservation. Actively preserving the forest and learning why it is essential to do it go hand in hand; this is why the workshops about forest education in the afternoons are as important as the practical work outside in the mornings! If you’re interested, you will have the possibility to co-organise workshops relating to forest education for your group.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You will be staying at the forest school from July 15 until the end of the work camp. On the first night (July 14/15), you will stay at a youth hostel located in Stuttgart. The Jugendherberge Stuttgart International offers shared rooms, common rooms, sanitary facilities and an outside area. On July 15 you will all leave after breakfast to travel together to Indelhausen.

At the forest school you will be accommodated in shared rooms (2 to 8 beds). The building is quite big, there is a dining room, a common room where you can relax or play games, bathroom facilities with shared showers, as well as a gym hall, a volleyball court, table tennis tables and two climbing walls. Meals will be provided by the school, so you don't have to cook by yourself. The forest school tries its best to serve local and bio food. There will be vegetarian and vegan options but we need to know about your needs in advance! Please inform us of any dietary restrictions or allergies you may have.

Lastly, be aware there is little phone reception in the forest school. Wifi is provided but quite slow – you will be able to exchange messages but streaming videos will most likely not work. Be ready for a digital detox!

Lage und Freizeit

The “Waldschulheim Indelhausen” is located in the small village of Hayingen in the middle of a geopark, at the southern end of the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve “Schwaebische Alb” in southern Germany. This area features diverse mountainous and cultural landscapes, protected ecosystems with rare plants and animals and notable forest, meadow and orchard habitats.

The surroundings are perfect for outdoors activities like hiking. It is very rural, and there are many great view-points and various old castle ruins that are worth visiting. Because Hayingen is quite far from bigger cities, the free time activities will be mainly done close-by in the nature, enjoying the beautiful surroundings and getting to know the local culture.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

This Youth Exchange is open for volunteers from Italy, France, Germany and Poland aged 16 to 20 years. It is organised in cooperation with the forest school Indelhausen (Waldschulheim Indelhausen).

The forest school is a pedagogical institution founded in 1977. The building used to be the village school and now serves 1,000 students and teachers every year as a non-formal learning place on the topic of forest and nature. Groups of students of the grades 7 to 9 of all school types usually stay here for two weeks and participate in different tasks of simple forest work, they take part to the school’s educational program about the forest, go on excursions or play games, have fun and do sports. Take a look at the place here: https://waldschulheim-indelhausen.forstbw.de/.

Anreise zum Treffpunkt

You will meet at Stuttgart main train station in the afternoon. Please try to be there between 1pm and 8pm. Your camp leaders will come and pick you up at the train station. You can plan your trip to “Stuttgart Hbf” by using the German Railway website: https://www.bahn.com/en

Arbeit

The municipality of Heilsbronn is counting on the help of international volunteers to maintain and renovate parts of the town’s infrastructure. For this year, two projects are in discussion:
• Maintain a fitness trail in the forest, called ‘’Vita Parcours’. To keep the fitness trail practicable for visitors, you will clear the trail of over-grow plants along the paths and on different stations. You will also help to clean the signs and stations, as well as help to pick up left-over trash along the way.
• Renovate a ‘’barefoot path’’. A barefoot path is a short way, where people can walk on barefoot, to experience different sensations. One part of it is made with pebbles, another with moss, another one with pine cones… etc. The barefoot paths in Heilsbronn are loved by kids and families and they need to be renovated regularly. You will help emptying and refilling the different parts of the path.

Others projects might also be added. In case, you should expect working outside with municipal workers, doing renovation or construction works. The work will be led by a professional instructor from the builder’s yard, so no previous experience is needed. You will work 30 hours per week, somewhere between 8am to 4pm from Monday to Friday with lunchbreak on site.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You will be accommodated in the local youth club called ‘’JUZ’’, there are two big rooms and one small room where you will sleep on camp beds or on mattresses on the floor. Please bring a sleeping bag! There is a small kitchen, a common room with sofas and games for you to chill, two toilets and one bathroom. In addition in the house, there is a washing machine and Wifi connection. The local youth who usually visit the club are looking forward to welcoming you and getting to know international volunteers.
Your group of volunteers will be responsible for grocery shopping and cooking together. The food will be bought with camp budget and everybody will take turns for cooking 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

Heilsbronn is a town of 9,300 inhabitants, located in the idyllic Bavarian region called Franken (Franconia). Because Heilsbronn is situated on one of the paths leading to the famous pilgrimage city Santiago de Compostela in Spain, it is frequently visited by tourists as well as pilgrims. But Heilsbronn city centre also has a lot to offer! Supermarkets, different shops, pubs, youth centre, a barbecue area, and other infrastructure. There, you will find traditional half-timbered houses and some unique sites, such as ‘’Heilsbronn ABBEY’’, a cistercian monastery and local cathedral, both built in the 12th century. A guided tour might be organised for you if you are interested. Besides, the town can arrange free entrance to the outdoor swimming pool for your group. Nature-lovers can find several hiking trails in the beautiful surrounding landscape.

Arbeit

The Workcamp takes place during the school summer vacation. There will be a children's holiday program in which the children will build a 'Hüttendorf', a hut village, in the forest: Wood will be the core building material. The children become both the architect and carpenter of their own small house. They have the freedom to decide for themselves what their hut looks like and try out
whether it works. Nevertheless some support help is needed, and that will be your task.

So if you enjoy looking after and playing with children, have a bit of manual dexterity, enjoy being outdoors and are willing to communicate with hands and feet (the children speak only German, some may speak a little English), then this camp is right for you. You are welcome to pass on children's songs from your home country, play traditional games from your culture with the children or any other activities you can think of.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You will live in the community centre: A complete kitchen with all appliances is available. There are toilets in the community center as well, a shower is available in the town hall - directly opposite. We will provide partition walls in the community center so that everyone has some privacy. You will sleep on camp beds, so please bring your own sleeping bag (and a pillow if needed).

Lage und Freizeit

Schwanfeld is situated in the north-western part of Bavaria, in between the cities of Schweinfurt and Würzburg. Only about 2,000 people live in this small community. The very motivated and active major of the village is looking forward to accompanying the volunteers, showing them around and telling them more about the historical and regional specialties of Schwanfeld.

A big highlight of Schwanfeld is the BERGAMO Festival which takes place on the weekend after the first half of your Workcamp. Aside from the village’s own sights (museum, church) and events there is beautiful nature and nearby larger cities like Würzburg to discover.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The community of Schwanfeld is the oldest village in Germany. Some years back, proof was found of a former 'Bandkeramik' (Linear Pottery Culture) settlement outside of the present village from presumably 5500 B.C. Schwanfeld is happy to show their treasures of the golden days to international volunteers and invites the group to get to know more about the south of Germany.

This is the 11th time an international Workcamp will take place in Schwanfeld – and the citizens will be very welcoming and excited to meet the new volunteers after the success of previous years. Invitations by local associations and the village youngsters have led to many cordial encounters and friendships in the past.

Anreise zum Treffpunkt

Please try to arrive between 1pm and 7pm on arrival day. A pizza dinner is planned to get to know each other. You can check for connections from anywhere to Schwanfeld on www.bahn.com/en

Anforderungen

It is not necessary to speak German in order to participate, however it is a big help for sure!

Arbeit

Become part of a festival crew and support the organization of a non-profit, free music festival in Stuttgart! Your international group will work with many other local volunteers. The main tasks will be the setting up of the stage, stalls and tents on the site of the festival, as well as the disassembly at the end.

While the festival is running, your group of volunteers will assist in different areas: bar, stage, organisation, catering etc. You will also have time to enjoy the festival yourself!

Volunteers should be flexible enough to work long and unusual hours – and enjoy music! Speaking or understanding basic German will be a plus. Your group might be asked to give a short presentation of the Workcamp on stage!

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

In the first two days, you will be hosted in a cultural centre in Stuttgart, where there is a kitchen and sanitary facilities. You will be sleeping in the building’s hall, where a stage is. We advise sightseeing in the first two days (Monday and Tuesday).

On the third day, you will move to the site of the festival. There you will be camping in a big tent, all together. Please bring your own camping mat and sleeping bag. We encourage you to bring your own tent, if possible! Food will be available through the food stands, until the end of the camp, so you will not have to cook for yourselves.

Sanitary facilities are given, but be aware of very basic festival standards: You will most likely be able to use the showers in the youth centre nearby (has to be confirmed) otherwise only cold, outdoor showers available and there is limited privacy compared to “regular” accommodations!

Lage und Freizeit

With 600,000 inhabitants, Stuttgart is the state-capital of Baden-Württemberg. From museums, to castles and parks, to an afternoon spent shopping, this city offers something for everyone to see! Within a short train ride, you can also enjoy the variety of nature around Stuttgart.

The city is surrounded by beautiful vineyards and hills. You could also visit some of the other interesting towns in the area, like Tübingen (approximately 1 hour away) and Ludwigsburg (approximately 30 minutes away), both accessible by public transportation.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

In summer, Stuttgart hosts a variety of music festivals and events. One of those festivals – called “Umsonst & Draussen” (German for "free of charge & outdoors") – will take place in the middle of Vaihingen, an outer city student- district of Stuttgart. The festival will run for three days, from 2nd to 4th of August (www.ud-stuttgart.de).

“Umsonst & Draussen” is organized in a participative way, where everyone can come and take part. It is the biggest non-commercial music-politics-culture festival in Stuttgart. It has been running in that unique and quite anarchic way for over 40 years now! Since 2013, the festival has been hosting Workcamps and the international volunteers have become an important part in the festival organisation.

Anreise zum Treffpunkt

In your infosheet, you will receive detailed information how to get from Stuttgart train station to the cultural centre where you will be staying for the first nights.

Arbeit

This camp will take place for the first time this year. You will be working in the middle of the Black Forest (at the gates of the national park of the same name) and support the foresters and their trainees in their work.

There are three main tasks for you:
• Mowing protected mountain meadows: To protect the nature here, driving with machines is not permitted on these meadows (machines would cause soil compaction), so manual labour is required. You will be mowing by hand.
• Maintaining capercaillie habitats: The capercaillie is the largest chicken bird in Europe and is threatened with extinction in Germany. You will be removing wood and cutting branches, as the birds need passageways.
• Forest maintenance: You will be removing branches from trees (with or without a ladder).

The work will be led by a professional instructor, so no previous experience is needed. You will work around 30 hours per week, between 8am to 4pm from Monday to Friday (with a lunchbreak of course). The work place is not far from your accommodation, so you will walk there every morning.

The camp is perfect for you if you love nature, since you will be working outside all day. What's more, the place is remote, so you can spend a lot of time with the others or on your own at the barbecue area or in the forest, meadows or hiking trails around the building. In short; the perfect project if you need a break from everyday life.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

The accommodation is on the first floor in the base building of the forest district. The building is called “Kriesenhof” and the forest district is called “Allerheiligen”. It is basic but has all facilities needed, such as a kitchen, a shower, a bathroom, even WIFI and a washing machine. You will sleep on mattresses, in one shared room. Please bring a sleeping bag (and a pillow if you want one) with you!

All 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 consumption and try more sustainable dishes.

Lage und Freizeit

The "Allerheiligen" forest district is located in south-west Germany, approx. 30 km from the French border as the crow flies. You will live and work in the middle of nature, in the direct neighbourhood of the Black Forest National Park.

There are many hiking opportunities, some of which start directly from the accommodation (Karlsruher Grat, Allerheiligen waterfalls, the national park).

Easily accessible by car: Mummelsee, Baden-Baden, Strasbourg, Freudenstadt, summer toboggan runs etc.

Anreise zum Treffpunkt

Please arrange your travel in a way that you arrive in the afternoon or early evening to the train station of Ottenhöfen. Please check for connections from anywhere in Germany or Switzerland to Ottenhöfen on www.bahn.com/en

Arbeit

As international volunteer you will primarily construct and design the trail, improve the accessibility, set up the information boards and much more. A wooden footbridge will also be built over a pond. The workcamp will receive technical guidance and support from the team of professional municipal workers and from young people living in Mönchweiler. They are part of the Mönchweiler Future Committee, which is an elected youth committee (children and young people of all ages) that develops and implements projects and programmes for children and young people. Great contacts and synergies can be created here. Many joint leisure activities can also be planned via the Future Committee, making the time unforgettable for everyone involved.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You will be accommodated in the local sports hall in the centre of the village. This offers plenty of space, a small kitchen and enough sanitary facilities for everyone. Camp beds are provided and set up on the stage of the hall to separate the sleeping area a bit. Please bring your own sleeping bag and pillow (if required). 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

Mönchweiler is a village with 3000 inhabitants on the edge of the Black Forest. The village is characterised by a very active community life and offers supermarkets, other shops, pubs, a barbecue area, a school and other infrastructure. If you prefer nature, you will find a lot of green around Mönchweiler with meadows, forests, small lakes and moors. You will definitely feel at home here. The next larger town, Villingen-Schwenningen, can be reached by bus in 12 minutes.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

Our project stretches through an idyllic landscape just outside the village of Mönchweiler. Information boards on various habitats will be set up along the trail, presenting interesting facts about the local flora and fauna. The various stations along the trail are intended to give visitors the opportunity to learn more about the ecological relationships and biodiversity of the local natural environment. The nature trail serves not only to impart knowledge, but also to protect and preserve natural habitats. Visitors are encouraged to treat nature and the environment with respect and responsibility.

Anreise zum Treffpunkt

There is a bus from Villingen (Schwarzwald) to Mönchweiler every two hours on Sundays. Please check www.bahn.com for a connection from anywhere in Germany to Mönchweiler.

Arbeit

The Park Rangers of the National Park Hunsrück-Hochwald are waiting for your support to preserve the fauna and flora in this unique natural environment and to provide endangered species with their original habitats again. At the same time it is a great opportunity for you to learn a lot about this ecosystem, the rangers will show and explain a lot. Three main tasks are waiting for you:
1. Care of the nutrient-poor grassland and arnica meadows (mowing works, work to stop spreading of shrubs etc.). With this work you can protect a valuable habitat with a very high biodiversity. This is especially the case for insects such as bees and butterflies and flowering plants such as orchids.
2. You will work on the wildlife park of Wildenburg Castle. Here you can find wolves, deer, wild boars, wildcats, mouflons and many other animals. Your task will mainly be to renew wooden fences and to build elements where the animals can hide behind. You will also construct wooden barriers to protect small trees from damage through the animals.
3. Let’s give water its natural space back! Within the National Park there are many places where the natural flow of water was changed (through cutting the curves of the streams or drainage channels etc.). In many cases this alteration is negatively impacting the biodiversity of these creeks. You will therefore help to restore the natural flow of the water by closing the channels and revitalizing natural flow elements.

Other environmental protections tasks can be added. Attention: The work might be physically hard and you will get wet and muddy for sure! Please bring hiking boots and working clothes.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You will stay in the community centre of Deuselbach. The accommodation is spacious, has a huge kitchen including a dish-washer and a living room, toilets and showers. There is one big sleeping room with camping beds. Wifi and even a washing machine are available. Please bring your sleeping bag.
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

The workcamp will take places in the western part of Rhineland-Palatinate. You will stay in Deuselbach, a small village with 260 inhabitants. The local villagers are very much interested to welcome you, many parties and events will happen. Deuselbach has a pub but no shops.

There are also many tourists in the area as it is well known for hiking all over the year and for skiing in winter. The next bigger city it Trier (40 km), the oldest Germany city with many Roman sights, a huge cathedral and plenty of this to do (vineyard, shopping, clubs…). You will do several excursions with the support of the Park Rangers, e.g. to Trier, the oldest German city with many famous sights.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The National Park Hunsrück-Hochwald is the newest German National Park to protect the nature. The park was just founded in 2015.

You will support the National Park Rangers in their work to preserve the habitat of endangered species and to protect ecologically valuable ecosystems. This workcamp will continue the mission of several Workcamps in the past years.

Anreise zum Treffpunkt

You will be picked up from a bus stop called “Hunsrückhaus/Erbeskopf, Deuselbach”. Please inform your camp leader about your arrival time on Aug 11th .

The focal point of the project will be the relocation of the pavilion from its former home at the old kindergarten site to its new site. But that's not all - unleash your inner artist as you pick up brushes and paint to breathe new life into the pavilion and the surrounding playground areas. Your creative skills will not only help in the renovation of these spaces and playing tools but also bring joy and wonder to the children who will make use of them. Additionally, you'll have the opportunity to contribute to the conservation of biodiversity by lending a hand in the construction of two insect hotels, providing vital sanctuaries for the declining insect populations.
There are no special skills required for this camp! There will be a professional work instructor who helps you with all tasks.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You will be accommodated in the local Elementary and Middle School of Wolframs-Eschenbach, very close to the centre of the village. Here you will transform two classrooms into dormitories, and you will sleep on camp-beds/floor mattresses, so be sure to bring your sleeping bag!

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
