Arbeit

You will support the local community in different tasks: 1. You will renovate a wooden hut used as shelter for hikers. Work will be demanding in parts and volunteers with experience in manual work or work with wood are especially welcome. 2. You will improve the surrounding of your accommodation. This will include landscape gardening and renovation work. Some other smaller tasks to improve the community infrastructure will be added. The group of volunteers will be split up in the two different tasks every day. You might be asked to support the local festival team.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

The accommodation provided is the former centre of the sports club of Schwarzerden. It is now in public use for bigger events in this village. All necessary facilities are provided but there is no public internet. Attention: This place is quite isolated; the village of Schwarzerden is 1km away. Next to the accommodation you can find the sports ground, you can use it whenever you want. You will have a beautiful view over the valley; you will be surrounded by forests and meadows. Just make a campfire and enjoy nature.

Lage und Freizeit

The workcamp will take place in Schwarzerden, which belongs to the local community of Freisen, together 7 other villages. Freisen is situated in the north of Saarland in a rural area. You can find many interesting places in Freisen: a historical railway, cultural and natural sights, a small zoo, a spa bath (but only few of them in Schwarzerden). The local villagers are already looking forward to getting to know you and to welcoming you at the local village festival. Some excursions will be organised (to the famous sights of Trier and to Idar-Oberstein, the German centre of gemstones). The project is perfect for volunteers who enjoy being outside and in nature. Please make sure to arrive in St. Wendel before 20.25 p.m. to reach the last bus of the day to Schwarzerden.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

Schwarzerden is a small village with 430 inhabitants and already experienced in welcoming international volunteers. After four successful international IBG workcamps they again invite a group of volunteers to support them to improve the local infrastructure and to enrich the village festival on July 7th to 9th. The previous camps have always been a big fun for the volunteers and the locals.

Arbeit

At the outskirts of the town, the family centre of Lauchringen built an “Adventure Land”: A big house with sleeping facilities, a kitchen, sanitary facilities, a workshop space and a big common room. This place is going to host groups during school holidays and offer an afternoon program for children and youngsters. The building itself will be finished in March; however, your help is needed to shape the garden area around it! You might help create a play area with water, stone, and sand: Build a small hill; from its top, a small stream will flow down and find its way through sand and stones. Not only your helping hands, but also your creativity is welcome for this task! Besides, there are many more small projects, for example, set up wooden elements to hide a steel fence. Apart from these tasks, you will help maintain the local stream: Lots of weed is growing next to the stream, and your support in removing it is very much appreciated!

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You will be accommodated in the “Adventure Land” itself – as the very first group to stay in the new building! There are two rooms with sleeping mats, a kitchen, and sanitary facilities – everything you need. Have a look at pictures of the new building here: http://faz-hochrhein.de/abenteuerland/category/blog/

Lage und Freizeit

Lauchringen is a small and pretty town in the very South of the Black Forest. It is just a stone’s throw away from the Swiss border and not far from places like Lake Constance and the university town of Freiburg. Lauchringen itself offers everything you need: shopping facilities, cafés, bars and much more.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The community of Lauchringen is going to host an international workcamp for the very first time – and they are very much looking forward to it.

Arbeit

One area in the Mariaberg complex where people with and without disabilities work together is the ecological farm, which is mainly raising Angus cattle, but also some pigs, geese and therapeutic sheep as well as cultivation of different grains. The farm is located a bit outside the main part of Mariaberg and quite recently it was made possible that the people working in the farm can also live there directly. So the project for this year’s Workcamp is to renovate and rebuild the outdoor area at the farm’s building so that it can be used for free time activities and relaxation. During some days the Workcamp volunteers will work together with students with disabilities from one of the schools in Mariaberg.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

Accommodation will be in a gym hall in the centre of Mariaberg close to all needed facilities like showers and toilets. You will certainly have access to the swimming pool of the quarter and have the opportunity to use other facilities. You will not prepare meals for yourself since there is no kitchen close to your accommodation. Hence, you will be served in the local Café and restaurant of the “village”.

Lage und Freizeit

Gammertingen is situated 80 km south of Stuttgart, nestled in the Swabian Albes (not Alpes!)– a beautiful mountain chain with spectacular nature. Without a doubt, you will find enough to do in Mariaberg itself (swimming pool, barbecue, gym halls, bowling, restaurants and cafés!) but the region also offers its nature, typical Swabian villages and small towns as worthy day-trips. The locals are looking forward to the cultural exchange with you and will be happy to organise trips and other activities for you.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

Following the success of last years’ projects, IBG and international volunteers are again invited to come to Gammertingen. An old monastery overlooks the village from atop the surrounding hills and lush forests of the Swabian Albes. Mariaberg, a quarter of Gammertingen, is not only a village, but also a supporting organisation of the “Behindertenhilfe”, an institution offering homes, workshops, and education (kindergarten and schools) for young people with learning difficulties, disabilities or illnesses. A diverse range of people – young and old – come together here to live, learn and work. We ask you to come with an open heart and mind, as you will be in close contact with the people and become a part of the diverse community in Mariaberg!

Arbeit

The playground of a local kindergarten needs to be re-done! Professionals will instruct you during the work and the aim is to finish the whole playground within the two weeks.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You will be accommodated in the local gym, right next to your work place. A kitchen and showers are provided.

Lage und Freizeit

Rottenburg offers various cultural as well as sport activities: museums, swimming pools, canoeing and an outdoor climbing wall. Nearby, there are hiking trails and castles which invite you to spend a relaxing day in the nature. The university town Tuebingen with plenty of cafés and bars is only 12km away and also Stuttgart can be reached in 1 hour by train. To thank you for your help, the town Rottenburg wants to organize a barbeque in the local castle, punting (boating with a punt, a small flat-bottomed boat that is pretty popular in Tuebingen) and some more free-time activities for you.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

Rottenburg am Neckar is a medium-sized town about 50km southwest of Stuttgart. Be aware that the project itself is going to take place in the village Obernau that belongs to Rottenburg – but it is located about 6km away from Rottenburg itself! While Obernau only has about 500 inhabitants, Rottenburg offers a picturesque historic centre, lying on the banks of the river Neckar. This year Rottenburg will be hosting a workcamp for the third time. The project will be done in cooperation with a local kindergarten, so there will be close contact to the local people. The children’s parents are already planning to invite you for a homestay in one evening!

Arbeit

There will be two different tasks: 1. You will improve the accessibility of a path surrounding a small lake for people with different disabilities. To make the path more attractive you will create a bare-foot-path and a maybe an area of special herbs and flowers smelling very nice. 2. You will support the middle-age-festival that is taking place in the nearby ruins of a castle and is attracting many visitors. You will for example help setting up tents and stands and offering activities for children. All tasks will be done under professional supervision and in cooperation with people with disabilities (mainly from the Café Courage) or with special needs. The project will start with an introduction focussed on questions of inclusion on the first weekend.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

The accommodation will be in the village community centre of Oberesch. Here you can find a big kitchen, a spacious hall, facilities to spend your time or to sleep and toilets of course. Showers will be available at the building of the local fire brigade right next to the community centre. During the middle-age festival you might sleep in a tent next to the castle.

Lage und Freizeit

The project will take place in Oberesch, a small village with 320 inhabitants situated directly at the German-French border, approx. 40km north of Saarbrücken. The local youngsters are already waiting to meet you. In the area you can find several castles and the famous valley of the river Saar, offering many opportunities for nice excursions even to destinations in Luxemburg or France or hiking tours. The region Saarland has a rich history of steel production and coal mining. Many excursions and activities will be done together with the people from Café Courage thus making the workcamp an unforgettable experience.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

Active and inclusive together! The local host of this project, “VIB der AWO Saarland”, is a charity organization offering jobs in workshops for people with mental or physical disabilities and initializing various inclusion projects. For example, they run a supermarket mainly operated by people with disabilities and they started ‘Café Courage’, a self-governed café and meeting point for people with and without handicap. The workcamp will support them in their inclusion strategy, creating new options for activities for their target group and offering new fields of (intercultural) experiences. The three main aspects of the project are: working together, meeting and having fun together.

Please add a motivation letter in English or German to show your high motivation for the project, interest and experience in working with people with disabilities (What kind of experience do you have? What do you think you can contribute?).

Arbeit

Every year, the hiking club offers outdoor holiday activities for about 30 children aged 5-12 years. They are very happy to get your support in organizing games for the kids and are looking forward to your creative ideas. Since the children do not speak English, it might be very helpful to know at least a few German words and/or bring games that can be played easily, without difficult explanations or language skills. Secondly, the area of the “seven ponds” needs to be taken care of. It is an area in the midst of the forest with a few lakes, terrace-like arranged and flowing into one another through small streams. In 2014, the first workcamp in Heidesheim took care of the area, which was overgrown with bushes and trees. Four years later, maintenance work is needed again: You will clear vegetation, cut free the lakes and paths in order to be accessible for visitors.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

The group will stay in the sports hall; all necessary sanitary facilities are provided. You will be able to use the kitchen of the hiking club’s house, which is located at your working place. For transport from the sports hall to the work place/kitchen, bicycles and a car (for 9 people) will be arranged.

Lage und Freizeit

Heidesheim is a community with approximately 7600 inhabitants. It is located near the well-known river Rhine. You can go hiking or cycling and enjoy the beautiful Rhine valley with its picturesque towns and castles. Heidesheim is only 10km from Mainz, the state capital and university town with many cafés, restaurants and clubs.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

After a two-year break, the hiking club of Heidesheim is inviting international volunteers for the third time! There are two main tasks to do, so the group will split up every day. You will have the chance to try out both, depending on your preference; and since both projects take place next to each other, you will still share your breaks with the rest of the group.

Weitere Infos

You should be able to ride a bike!

Arbeit

The workcamp will help the organizers in all phases of the festival. The main tasks will be setting up of all facilities at the festival site as well as the disassembly at the end. While the festival is running, the volunteers will assist in different areas: bar, stage, organisation, catering etc. You will work closely with the people from the association. Volunteers should be flexible enough to work long and unusual hours and enjoy music. Speaking or understanding basic German will be a plus.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

TBC. Because the festival is taking place in a very urban area, it is difficult for the organisers to find accommodation for the volunteers. In the past volunteers were staying at a youth club, in an empty house or had a home stay at several members of the local team. Everything is possible and please note that arrangements might change and that everything is improvised - a typical festival experience!

Lage und Freizeit

The small garden city of Graefelfing is 1,250 years old. The townscape is famous for its many villas from the beginning of the last century. Graefelfing has about 13,000 inhabitants and is situated very close to Munich (18min by S-train from Munich Central Station). Please be aware that during the duration of the workcamp there will not be much time for trips to Munich, even though it is very close. If you are interested in the touristic site of Munich, please plan some time before or after the camp.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

Since 1978, the Kulturfestival Graefelfing (www.kulturfestival.de) has taken place every two years on the first weekend of the summer holidays in a big park between Graefelfing and Munich. It is run by a local non-profit organization and it is free of charge. It will be the third time that the festival is supported by international volunteers. This year, the festival itself will be from the 26th until the 29th of July and about 15,000 visitors are expected throughout the whole event. There will be 4 different stages for the program of different types of music, theatre, dance and programs for children. In case of bad weather, the whole festival will take place inside big tents.

Arbeit

Main focus of the Workcamp is the renovating the inside and outside of the „playhouse“. Especially the wood paneling on the outside needs to be refurbished: sanding off the wood and repainting with preservative. The doors need a new paint job as well. On the inside a lot of repainting work is waiting as well and you can get artistic and creative on some walls, ceilings and doors. Depending on the work progress you might also help with greening some parts of the playhouse to improve the indoor climate. Apart from the work on the playhouse, there are lots of smaller projects waiting in the outdoor area of the Aki that can be tackled by the volunteers according to the progress on the playhouse.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

The group will stay in the playhouse directly on the AKI area, where there is enough space for separate sleeping rooms. Kitchen, toilets and showers are provided. However sanitary facilities are quite basic.

Lage und Freizeit

The adventure playground is located on the edge of Raitelsberg, which was built in the 1920s as a working class quarter in the eastern part of Stuttgart. It is only a few minutes to walk to the next subway station, the “Schlosspark” the Stuttgart’s biggest park area and a mineral spring spa. Stuttgart has about 600,000 inhabitants and is the state-capital of BW. From museums, to castles and parks, to an afternoon spent shopping, the city offers something for everyone. Just a short train ride away you can enjoy the variety of nature around Stuttgart. Take a visit to some of the other interesting towns in the area, like Tuebingen (approximately 1 hour away) and Ludwigsburg (approximately 30 minutes away).

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The Aktivspielplatz Raitelsberg e.V. (AKI) is a non-profit association that was founded in 1975 by active citizens to improve the living conditions of children in the eastern part of Stuttgart. The children of the surrounding quarters can come and make experiences with nature and animals, exercise, nutrition /health etc. The AKI provides for example a giant trampoline, a trapeze, a half pipe, a workshop, a fireplace, several vehicles, a sports field and a riding field. The animals have to be taken care of every day, so the children (age 6-14) and younger children together with their parents have the possibility to be in contact with nature, environment and animals close to the city. The area of the AKI is quite worn down and the intense use over the last years is showing, so there is a big need for maintenance work, renovation and refurbishment. The board and staff members of the AKI want to prepare this special place for the future. That’s why they are looking for support in this great and important task to strengthen the local and open youth work in their neighborhood.

Arbeit

You will mainly work in the canyon “Butzerbachgraben” crossing the village. It has been a real jungle, so they already started to do some forest work to make it accessible again. Your tasks will be to improve several hundred meters of the path leading through the canyon (construct wooden steps and handrails, install educational panels and build up places to rest (with wooden benches). If there is time enough, you might also create an outdoor classroom for the primary school nearby. You will work with some local volunteers; therefore you will also work on Saturdays (as many locals are available) but will have another day off during the week. The work can be physically hard in parts and you will get dirty. But you will work in the shadow which can be quite helpful in summer.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You will stay in several rooms of the village community centre. These cosy rooms in the top floor are usually dedicated to the local youth or to local associations. One room will become the living room, the other one the sleeping room. There is a kitchen on the same floor but you have to descend two floors to get to the toilets and showers. You can also sit outside and make a barbecue or a campfire.

Lage und Freizeit

Butzweiler is a village 10 km far from Trier with 1.500 inhabitants in a beautiful landscape. The area is well known for hiking and other outdoor activities. In the village you can find a small supermarket, pubs and restaurants, a primary school and many different associations with a very active village life. The local inhabitants are already very curious to get to know you. For sure you will be invited to several parties and other activities. In the leisure time excursions (e.g. to Trier with its famous Roman sights) or special hiking trips (exploring the rest of the canyon with waterfalls, caves and the ruins of an old castle) are possible.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

Butzweiler is a village not far from Trier, the oldest German city. A local group of volunteers started an initiative to revalue a canyon full of trees crossing the village. Up to now this canyon has no function in the village life, now they want to install together with the international workcamp an educational forest trail and places to rest in green and the shadow.

Aach is a village with approx. 1.000 inhabitants not far from Trier in Western Germany, near the border to Luxemburg. It offers several pubs (but no shops), friendly people and a beautiful landscape. You can go hiking, make barbecues, discover nature, and have different activities together with locals (they are already very curiously waiting for you). The number of excursions will be limited due to the poor local transport but for sure you will visit Trier, the oldest German city with many Roman sights (as Porta Nigra), a famous cathedral, many clubs and events...

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

Aach is a small village not far from Trier. After a very positive experience in 2017, they are looking forward to welcoming again international volunteers to improve the infrastructure of the village. Both aspects are quite important for the local community: the exchange with international volunteers and their concrete support. The village is situated in a deep valley, the different houses climb up the steep hills.

Arbeit

Come to Grimburg Castle, enjoy living in the castle and support the maintenance of the castle's grounds. Usually, local volunteers care for the maintenance of the castle but due to the enormous workload they look forward for your help. You will do various works on the castle's ground: cut bushes and grass, protect the masonry, maintain the historic medieval herb garden and do some cleaning work in the castle’s and witches museum. The work will depend on the weather conditions. A second huge topic is your support in the preparation and organisation of the castle's festival. You will become a part of the local festival team and of course celebrate together with them.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

The group will stay in one of the small towers of the castle – you will feel a bit like you are living as former inhabitants of the castle did. At night you will have the castle for your own; you can make a campfire and enjoy living in the nature. The conditions are basic; you will use the first floor for sleeping (bunk beds) and the ground floor for cooking and eating. There is electricity but no running water in the tower itself. Toilets and a shower are within 100m. Of course, there is also no internet available. Please bring a sleeping bag and a flashlight.

Lage und Freizeit

The castle Grimburg is overlooking the forests and valleys of the region called “Hochwald” (“high forest”). The castle is quite isolated; the next village (the name is also Grimburg) is in a 2km distance, the next shops are in Hermeskeil (10km). The castle is surrounded by nature and you will have the chance to enjoy it (just go for a walk...). Nevertheless you will also meet local people and share time with them or make an excursion to Trier, the oldest German city with 100,000 inhabitants. Here you can find many historical sights (from the Roman period), many clubs and events (as it is a university town) and all other facilities.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

For the sixth year, a workcamp will take place at the castle Grimburg this summer. Built by the Trier archbishops around 1190, the castle has been destroyed and reconstructed several times. Awakened from its centuries-long sleep in 1978, a local group of volunteers started to reconstruct the castle again, including work on the very impressive castle keep. However, most parts are still a ruin and in the past years, efforts have been made to increase the castle’s accessibility and attractiveness of this unique site. Today, it has become a popular destination for hikers, as well as a site used for weddings, youth activities, historic markets and knights’ festivals. This year the association of local volunteers caring for the castle celebrates its 40th anniversary and therefore organises a festival on the castle on Aug 25th/26th.
