Arbeit

Come and volunteer in a summer village for children, youngsters and families! Three to six weeks of different activities await you while you assist in a summer camp for kids, youth and families near Cologne! The project consists of two consecutive volunteering teams (ESC1 + ESC2). This will cover the whole duration of the holiday program as well as to support in the setting up and dismantling of the site. If you are very motivated, you are invited to participate in both volunteering teams. The first group (ESC1) will help in the setting-up of the camping site for a few days and starting from the 4th of July, you will support the local team with the running of the camping village. This involves helping with different types of workshops, where the children can try out different types of sport, do arts and crafting or simply plays games. During your first two weeks, the participants will be children from 7-12 years. In the third week the participants will be teenagers from 12-15 years. The first project will end during this week and the second group of volunteers (ESC2) will arrive. The following week's program will have activities for adolescents aged 14+ and the last week is reserved for families with (small) children. Aside from helping in the program, there are also going to be “backstage” tasks, such as going grocery shopping or cleaning. Another responsibility is the night duty: Since the participants are under age, someone always needs to stay awake. Don’t worry, you won’t need to stay up the whole night and you won’t need to do it alone. It can easily turn into a nice long campfire-evening with friends. It is very important to the local team that you feel and become part of one big group of teamers. On the 7th of August, all the camp village participants will leave and you and the local teamers will start taking everything down and store things away for the next year. That part of the work might be quite physical, but at the same time this week is supposed to give you and the local teamers time to spend together and eventually to say goodbye.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You will sleep in big group tents on the camp village site. Camping mats will be provided, but please bring your own sleeping bag! There are showers and sanitary facilities available, but the accommodation itself is quite basic. There will be no need for cooking since you will be eating together with the local team and the participants, so everything will be provided.

Lage und Freizeit

The camp village is situated on a meadow surrounded by trees a bit outside of the town of Bergheim. In Bergheim, you can find different shops and cafés, and Bergheim itself is only 20km away from Cologne. On your days off you can therefore visit Cologne, which is the fourth most populous city of Germany and famous for its cathedral and the Roman-Germanic museum. You can also go on trips to other nearby towns, for example to Bonn.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

Woanders e.V. is a non-profit organization which wants to reach people of all ages, support cross-generational interaction and contact between people from different areas of life. Their work intends to reduce fear of contact and support tolerance and curiosity for other people, by strengthening the team-spirit “We”. Each summer for a full month, they organize a camping village full of activities for different age groups: They start with two weeks of kids-programs, followed by a week of camping for teenagers (12-15 years old), then followed by a week for adolescents (14+) and finally a week of family camp. You can find the camp village schedule here: https://woanders.org/zeltstadt/#Projekte Participants usually stay there for a full week, most of them will stay overnight in tents and have their meals there as well. It is a project aimed mostly towards children and teens with fewer opportunities but it is open to people from all backgrounds. Priority is given to participants from nearby communities. In 2020 for the first time a small group of international volunteers was involved in the project and we want to build on this successful cooperation. By volunteering in this project, you are contributing to a sustainable and inclusive community (UN SDG 11).

Arbeit

In this workcamp, you will support the forest school “Waldschulheim Indelhausen”, a place of non-formal environmental education for school classes. You will take part in the Forest school's program. This means: • in the mornings, you will be working on different environmental tasks to help maintain the surrounding biosphere area; • in the afternoons, you will be learning more about forests and the nature surrounding us. This is a special project for nature lovers and people interested in learning about nature protection work.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You will be accommodated in shared rooms directly in the forest school. There are shower and bathroom facilities, as well as a gym hall, a volleyball court, table tennis tables and two climbing walls. Meals will be provided by the school.

Lage und Freizeit

The “Waldschulheim” is located in the small village of Indelhausen in the middle of a geopark and at the southern end of the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve “Schwaebische Alb” (a protected ecosystem with, in parts, rare plants and animals) in southern Germany. This area is 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.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The forest school “Waldschulheim Indelhausen” 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, an educational program about the forest and excursions as well as games, fun and sports. You can take a look at the place here: https://waldschulheim-indelhausen.forstbw.de/. By participating in this workcamp, you are actively supporting biodiversity (UN SDG 15) and help us work against climate change (UN SDG 13).

Arbeit

We invite 12 volunteers to come to Mariaberg and build a bakehouse together with students with disabilities. Mariaberg is a complex where people with and without disabilities work together. There is an area called the ecological farm where cattle are raised (but also a few pigs, geese and therapeutic sheep) and different grains are cultivated. Students with disabilities from local schools regularly come working on the farm, which is located a bit outside of Mariaberg’s centre. Your job will be to build a bakehouse on the farm, which you will be doing with and for these people. In 2020 the foundation was already prepared and concreted, which means that you can start building! That includes: • bricklaying of the oven • insertion of the baking chamber and the ash pan • the erection of the roof with wooden rafters and roof tiles.

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 yourselves 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 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 successful history of workcamps in Mariaberg, IBG and international volunteers are again invited to come to Mariaberg / Gammertingen to realize a small but important construction project. 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 to live here, learn and work. Mariaberg as an institution was founded in 1847 and is now one of the biggest employers in the area, with several schools for caring professions and a psychiatry clinic for children and youth. We ask you to come with an open heart and mind, as you will be in close contact with the people and become part of the diverse community in Mariaberg! By volunteering in this project, you are contributing to a quality education for all and to a sustainable and inclusive community (UN SDG 4 and 11).

Arbeit

We invite 12 international volunteers to help continue the construction of the Celtic housing complex in Bopfingen. So far, four workcamp groups and volunteers of the community of Bopfingen already started building the main house of the Celtic housing complex. Your task will be to continue the work on the walls and the floor of the house. The working place is set on the top of the hill “Ipf”, so you will be working outside with a wonderful view over the region. All the materials you work with are natural materials like clay, wood, and stone.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You will be staying at the local sport club’s house equipped with all necessary facilities, a big living room and a kitchen which you can use to cook. There are large sports areas and a football pitch outside that you can use in your free time. The house is in a quiet area, but very close to the town’s centre with several supermarkets close-by.

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 mountain 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 Noerdlingen, 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?

The town of Bopfingen invites an international workcamp for the fourth time this 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. By participating to this project you contribute to protecting the local cultural heritage in a sustainable way (UN SDG 9 and 11).

Arbeit

Take action for climate protection and biodiversity – save the moors in the National Nature Park Hunsrück-Hochwald! You will contribute to protect special moors situated on hill slopes within the nature park. These moors are an important and valuable natural CO2 storage but they were drained more than 100 years ago for forestry use. Under the supervision of several Park Rangers you will undertake different measures to keep the water in the moor in order to undo the drainage. These include: • blocking or filling ditches with natural material; • building small wooden barriers. In addition you will work on the animal 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 elements to protect small trees from getting damaged by the animals; • other environmental protections tasks. This workcamp will continue the task of six former workcamps and will take place in cooperation with the National Nature Park Hunsrück-Hochwald and the Foundation for Nature and Environment Rhineland-Palatinate. PLEASE NOTE: The work might be physically hard and you will get wet and muddy for sure! Please, bring hiking boots, rubber 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, showers and a washing machine. There is one big sleeping room with camp beds.

Lage und Freizeit

The workcamp will take places in the western part of Rhineland-Palatinate, in western Germany, close to Luxemburg. You will stay in Deuselbach, a small village with 160 inhabitants. The local villagers are very happy to welcome you and to get to know you, many parties and events will happen. Deuselbach has a pub but no shops. The next bigger village (Thalfang) is 4km away, here you can find everything you need (shops, swimming pool…). There are also many tourists in this area as it is well known for hiking all over the year and for skiing in winter. The next big city is Trier (40 km), the oldest German city with many Roman sights, a huge cathedral and plenty of things to do (vineyard, shopping, clubs…). You will do several excursions with the support of the Park Rangers, e.g. to Trier.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The National Nature Park Hunsrück-Hochwald is the newest German National Park to protect the nature, it was founded in 2015. The landscape is dominated by huge forests, steep hills, small brooks and ponds, rocks and marshes. Only small hamlets interrupt the nature, a perfect region for plenty of different species but also for hiking. Since the establishment of the National Nature Park, special attention has been paid to restoring the former moors that were drained for forestry. Since 2016, international volunteers have actively contributed to support this process. Work on a large area of moorland has already been completed. Many different species (especially amphibians and special plants) already returned. The park rangers will do their best to explain the ecological background of the project and they will be happy to show you the beauties and sights of their home region. By participating to this workcamp you are actively fighting against climate change, protecting nature and biodiversity (UN SDG 13 and 15). This is a special project for nature lovers and people interested in nature protection work. You will get wet and dirty. Also, please note: You can arrive either on July 17th (at 7.30 pm) or on July 18th (at 1.30pm) to Neubrücke(Nahe).

Arbeit

The festival organizers invite 12 international volunteers to help set up, organise and take down a music festival in Stuttgart. You will work together with many other local volunteers. The main tasks will include: • setting up the stage, stalls and tents on the site of the festival; • disassembling at the end of the festival; • assisting in different areas whilst the festival is running such as: bar, stage, organisation, catering etc. You should be flexible enough to work long and unusual hours – and enjoy music! Speaking or understanding basic German will be a plus! You might have the opportunity to present yourself and the workcamp together with the other volunteers.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

In the first two days, your group will be hosted in a cultural centre in Stuttgart, where you have a kitchen and sanitary facilities. You will be sleeping in the hall, where the stage is. We advise sightseeing in these first few days. On the third day, you will move to the site of the festival. There you will be camping in a big tent. You will need a camping mat and a sleeping bag. We encourage you to bring your own tent, if possible! Food will be available through the food stands. Sanitary facilities are given, but be aware of very basic festival standards: only cold, outdoor showers are available and limited privacy compared to “regular” accommodations! Warning: The living conditions in this workcamp are very basic, since you will sleep in tents.

Lage und Freizeit

With 600,000 inhabitants, Stuttgart is the state-capital of BW. From museums, to castles and parks, to an afternoon spent shopping, this city offers something for everyone to see! In addition, take a short train ride and 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?

In summer, Stuttgart hosts a variety of music festivals and events. One of those festivals – called “Umsonst & Draussen” (free of charge & outdoors) – will take place close to the campus of the University of Stuttgart outside the city centre, running for three days, from 6th – 8th of August (www.ud-stuttgart.de). It is the biggest non-commercial music-politic-culture festival in Stuttgart. It is organized by an open plenary where everyone can come and participate. The festival has been running in that unique and quite anarchic way for 40 years now! Since 2013, the festival has been hosting camps and the international volunteers have become an important part in the festival organisation. By helping to organize this communal festival, you are contributing to a sustainable and inclusive community (UN SDG 11).

Arbeit

The citizens of the villages of Zuesch and Neuhuetten have met and gathered a great variety of different project ideas, which they would like to realize together with you. Concrete projects are: • creation of a small nibbling and herb garden at the kindergarten with a raised bed; • maintenance and signposting of hiking trails and, connected to this, of benches and resting areas; • creation of wild flowering beds along hiking trails; • artistic design of a wall in the community centre; • embellishment of the schoolyard and maintenance of the playgrounds; • improvement of access to the cultural monument Zuescher Hammer Mill; • construction of a staircase from the lake to a refuge. It will depend on the weather and other factors which projects will be implemented first. Every day the group will be divided into two or three teams. The great variety of tasks ensures that it will never be boring and that you can be proud of the amount of work done in the end. This is a special project for nature lovers and people interested in nature and countryside life.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

The group will be staying in the community centre of Muhl, a tiny village with 150 inhabitants inside a national park and surrounded by pure nature. The town house is newly renovated and offers a good kitchen, sanitary facilities and showers, space to eat and sleep. Mats are provided; please bring your own sleeping bag. The direct surroundings of the house offer the possibility to stay outside when the weather is fine. The building also houses a service station of the national park. Regular events take place here or in the neighbouring church.

Lage und Freizeit

Zuesch and Neuhuetten are villages with 600 and 800 inhabitants and are very close together. They have some pubs, but no supermarket. The next bigger village (Hermeskeil) is 6km away, here you can find everything you need (shops, swimming pool…). There are also many tourists in the area as it is well known for hiking all over the year and for skiing in winter. A nice lake is nearby. The next bigger city is Trier (45 km), the oldest Germany city with many Roman sights, a huge cathedral and plenty of things to do (vineyard, shopping, clubs…). In the villages and the direct surrounding, you find a lot of interesting opportunities for activities and sights. Activities together with the locals will be organised. We will do our best to arrange some excursions, but due to the poor local transport, the number will be limited.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

Zuesch and Neuhuetten are both located in the Hochwald ("High forest") and around the Hunsrueck-Hochwald National Park. For the first time, they invite international volunteers to improve the local infrastructure and make the villages even more attractive. You will work together with local volunteers to implement a variety of smaller projects to beautify the schoolyard and a community centre, maintain and re-signpost paths, make the local cultural heritage (like a hammer mill) more accessible and much more. Since the two villages and your accommodation are surrounded by unique protected nature, the projects are particularly suitable for nature lovers and discoverers. But also the inhabitants of Zuesch and Neuhuetten are looking forward to meeting you. By participating in this project, you are supporting the sustainable development of these two villages (UN SDG 11).

Treffpunkt

Hermeskeil bus stop in the afternoon of August 11th.

Arbeit

Clear a historic irrigation canal - help let the water flow and reach the mills again! In a side valley of the Moselle there is a historic “Waalweg”, a man-made irrigation canal that used to carry water over several hundred metres into the neighbouring “Mühlental” (mill valley) to run the mills. A unique feature of this irrigation channel was that it also led the water through a cave and a tunnel under a mountain ridge. Over the course of the past years, this canal filled up with dirt and rocks and the cave became overgrown. The aim of the project is to uncover the stream and the cave so that the water can flow into the neighbouring valley again. In concrete terms, your tasks will be to clear the canal and the tunnel of vegetation, branches, debris and mud. You will certainly get dirty during this task. Local volunteers and some professionals will support you and will ensure an interesting exchange with locals. A well-known hiking trail follows the “Waalweg”, so interested onlookers will regularly watch you at work. The result of your work will not only be historically and ecologically valuable, but will also be admired by hikers for years to come.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You will live and sleep in the buildings of the local sports club. You can use their kitchen and showers as well as mats for sleeping. Please bring a sleeping bag. Outside the club house, you have plenty of space to play games and sports. Volunteers will cook together and share kitchen and cleaning tasks.

Lage und Freizeit

Kobern-Gondorf is a village with 3.200 inhabitants in the valley of the river Moselle. Kobern-Gondorf offers many attractions: the Moselle wine which is cultivated here, four ruins of castles and many half-timbered houses from the middle age in the village centre. It is also a lively place with many pubs, associations and a good infrastructure (good public transport, schools and kindergartens). The village is surrounded by a beautiful landscape, so in your free time you can go hiking and discover the nature of the Moselle valley. Excursions to Koblenz and maybe to Bonn or Trier are possible. However, priority will be given to joint activities in Kobern-Gondorf and with the local population.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The village of Kobern-Gondorf is asking for the support of international volunteers for the first time this year. The people living in the village are already excited to meet you and to get to know the different cultures of all volunteers. Even if in August 2021 we still have to follow restrictions due to the pandemic, both the accommodation and the work project allow a safe organisation of the workcamp. By participating to this project you contribute to improving the infrastructure of this local community in a sustainable way (UN SDG 9 and 11). Apply now to support us and join the first international workcamp in the village of Kobern-Gondorf!

Arbeit

During this project you will be working on the continuous transformation of a forest into a light wood pasture. Your tasks will include: • building drinking troughs for local animals on the pastures; • building wooden fences to protect the young oak trees from grazing animals; • improving the forest pasture by clearing residual wood from the area. In case of rainy weather, you will install bird nesting boxes and carve out a birthing cave for wildcats. This project is great for anyone with an interest in nature preservation and biodiversity. By participating in this workcamp, you are actively supporting biodiversity (UN SDG 15) and combating climate change (SDG 13).

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You will be accommodated in the local primary school building, which includes sanitary facilities and a kitchen. You will be able to shower in the school gym next door. Camp beds are provided, but please bring a sleeping bag. There is a bakery in the village and a supermarket in the next village, which can be reached by foot.

Lage und Freizeit

Kappel-Grafenhausen is situated right at the border to France, next to the river Rhine and a nature park with beautiful landscape in which you will be working. In addition, you will be very close to the Black Forest, which is perfect for hiking trips. Of course, you can also do some sightseeing in your free time, for example visit Freiburg.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The community of Kappel-Grafenhausen has initiated a special biodiversity preservation project in 2015: The Wild Wood Pastures! By introducing a small herd of Salers cattle and some Konik horses to the neighbouring nature park Taubergießen, they are returning to a historic use of land which had been given up in the 18th century. Throughout the year, the animals are roaming freely and grazing in the woods, which leads to a light forest. This allows room for animals and plants that have been pushed out of regular working forests and green lands. The grazing animals are changing the structure of vegetation and wildlife in a way that would be impossible to achieve through human hand. Many threatened species, especially birds and insects, have since returned to the area. Have a look at their website (https://wildeweiden.lev-ortenaukreis.de/) and this video for further impressions: https://www.kappelgrafenhausen.de/site/KappelGrafenhausen/get/params_E1760286155/2470564/3%20Kurzfilm%20Gemeinde%20Hd%20Kleine%20Aufl%C3%B6sung-1.mp4

Arbeit

Come to Oberzissen and help the local community to make playing conditions for children attractive and secure! The community of Oberzissen would like to improve their playing conditions for children. You will be working on two different projects in order to achieve this goal: • Make their wish come true! The kids in the local kindergarten and their teachers already have different ideas like an environmental monitoring station at a stream or additional elements in the playgrounds of the village. In the next months, they will decide which of their ideas needs your support to become reality. For sure you will have the opportunity to meet them. • Make the streams safer. Three small canalised streams flow through Oberzissen. Of course local children love to go there to play! But the streams are much lower than the roads, so help us make sure that nobody - especially not children – risks falling into the water. Under the guidance of a master painter, you will clean, sand down and paint the existing railings next to the streams. Your workplace is in the middle of the village, so you will meet lots of locals while working. Some smaller additional tasks will complete the project.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You will live and sleep in the buildings of the local soccer club and the sportshall. You can use their kitchen and showers as well as mats for sleeping. Please bring a sleeping bag. Outside the club house, you have plenty of space to play games and sports. There is also a small barbecue area that you can use. Volunteers will cook together and share kitchen and cleaning tasks.

Lage und Freizeit

Oberzissen is a village with 1.100 inhabitants not far from the city of Bonn. In the village, you will find two pubs, an ice-cream parlour and – most importantly – many friendly people. A historic railway leads through the village with a real steam engine running on weekends. Oberzissen is surrounded by beautiful landscapes, so in your free time you can go hiking, discover nature, have barbecues, and get to know the locals during different activities together. You can find the closest supermarkets in the next village close-by. You will spend most of your time with the people in Oberzissen, but you will enjoy a few excursions on your days off - maybe to the Rhine valley, Bonn or Cologne.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The village of Oberzissen is asking for the support of international volunteers for the first time this year! The people living in the village are already excited to meet you and to get to know the different cultures of all volunteers. Even if in September 2021 we still might have to follow restrictions due to the pandemic, both the accommodation and the work project allow a safe organisation of the workcamp.

Arbeit

Build a terrace and carport for a social center for kids and families in Lauchringen! Join this camp to work on the surrounding garden area of the Adventure Land. The Adventure Land in Lauchringen is a place for children and school groups. It consists of a house and a big garden area. The building itself is already finished, but there is still plenty to build and create in the surrounding garden area. Some of your tasks will be: - Setting up and decorating a terrace surrounding the Adventure Land - Building high gardening beds for children to plant flowers and vegetables in - Gardening work in the fields - Building a carport, which is a roof to shield cars from bad weather You should be prepared to work a lot outside and with wood, but there are usually also smaller painting jobs and indoor tasks in case of bad weather.

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 – everything you need. Please bring a sleeping bag. There is also a big common room that you can use for your activities. On some 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. Have a look at pictures of the new building and area here: https://faz-hochrhein.de/abenteuerland/ueber-uns/scheune/

Lage und Freizeit

Lauchringen is a 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 also very close to the Swiss border and not far from places like Lake Constance and 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 third time. The project will take place in cooperation with the “Familienzentrum” (family centre). The family 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. By participating in this workcamp, you are actively supporting inclusive education.

Arbeit

You will be working to take carte and maintain the green areas around the regional education centre. Your tasks will include: • cutting the grass and bushes; • tending the herbs garden; • cleaning the grounds of the centre; • taking care of the sports grounds, the playground and its big swing, low rope course, tree house and insect hotel. In addition, you will continue to upgrade the outdoor area pedagogically and create new offers. The workcamp last year already set up an outdoor kitchen, which is used for different educational actions with youngsters.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You will stay in several wooden tepees for five persons each. Mats are provided. In the centre you will have your own kitchen and living room and sanitary facilities. For the free time you will find perfect conditions: billiard, plenty of outdoor facilities (campfire, basketball, football, volleyball…). The public (outdoor) swimming pool is just nearby.

Lage und Freizeit

Kell am See is a village 30 km from Trier in a beautiful landscape. The area is well known for cycling, walking and other ways of outdoor activities. The local holiday resort offers more than 200 holiday bungalows next to a lake (close to the educational centre). But also people from the area come here for cycling (there is a 45 km cycling path on a former railway roadbed) or to spend a nice day outside. The region also offers plenty of historic sites (castles, museums….). You will also get the opportunity to come in contact with local associations, e.g. the local voluntary fire brigade. Since public transport is poor, the number of excursions will be limited. But for sure Trier with its famous Roman sites, the cathedral and birth place of Karl-Marx can be visited.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

Kell am See is a touristic village not far from Trier, the oldest German city. The regional youth department runs an educational centre in this village, which offers different environmental educational activities for youth groups and school classes. Also, school classes or youth associations can come here for several days and run own seminars or trainings. The centre was just renovated a couple of years ago and different new outdoor and training facilities were installed. By participating in this project, you are supporting education on environmental issues (UN SDG 4 and 13).

Arbeit

On this workcamp, you will be helping with the renovation of the Black Forest House of the Senses and the local secondary school. Much of this work is on the outside of these two buildings. It includes updating of earthworks, erection of small walls and benches. Depending on the weather you might also help out with other various tasks in the community. There’s always a lot to do, so just prepare yourself to work outside manually, fulfilling constructional/renovation/ environmental tasks.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You will be accommodated in a beautiful group house where showers and a kitchen are provided. Please bring your own sleeping bag. The group house is in the middle of the village, so you can easily walk to a bakery/café and the local supermarket.

Lage und Freizeit

Grafenhausen is a very nice village within a beautiful landscape. The surrounding area is perfect for hiking trips: There are lakes close-by and it is not even half an hour by car to the Feldberg (the highest German mountain outside of the Alps). Also, the famous beer "Tannenzaepfle" is brewed in Grafenhausen and you might be able to visit the brewery. The village is in a very rural area, so be prepared for two calming weeks in the Black Forest and far away from big city life. To go shopping and for excursions, the community will lend you a bus, if it’s more convenient. There are regular train connections to Freiburg (a university city) and Lake Constance. Grafenhausen is located at about 1.000 meters altitude; therefore the weather in autumn is a bit unpredictable: Be prepared for warm and sunny temperatures, as well as coldness and rain.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The community of Grafenhausen, located in the Black Forest, invites an international workcamp for the 5th time. It is a village with about 2.100 inhabitants in the South of Germany that has a lot to offer: e.g. the very interactive "Black Forest Museum", a public pool, and a sculpture park (where the international group of 2015 worked). In previous years, international volunteers have taken many actions to help with the sustainable development within the community (UN SDG 11): they have worked on a sculpture park, built a water playground, an adventure trail and last year another playground in front of the school building. This year, by helping with the restoration of a forest in the community that was destroyed by bark beetles during the hot summers of 2018 and 2019, you are actively supporting climate action (UN SDG 13) and life on land (UN SDG 15).
