Work

In the centre of the village of Aach there has been an area with several small ponds. The ponds were filled and now the place should become a green area for everybody to meet and enjoy life outdoors. This workcamp will mark the first step in this transformation process by creating paths, some wooden benches and a first element to attract people (maybe high flower beds or an insect hotel, but this has still to be confirmed). Please be aware that working outside in March can be quite challenging, the weather might be fine but it can still be quite cold and rainy (or even snowy). In case of long-lasting bad weather conditions you will work on the renovation of the village’s barbecue hut (indoor and partly outdoor).

Accomodation and food

in a community centre, in rooms called "family barn". Usually these rooms are offered to people in the village to celebrate birthday parties or similar events, or to local initiatives for trainings. Beds will be provided, but you have to bring your sleeping bag. There is also a small kitchen and you can use the bathrooms of the sport shall which is in the same building.

Location and leisure

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. The village is situated in a deep valley, the different houses climb up the steep hills. You can go hiking, make barbecues, discover nature, and have different activities together with locals (e.g.an international cooking event or a training session together with the local voluntary fire-brigade…). 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 ...

Project hosted by

Aach is a small village not far from Trier. After two great international workcamps in 2017 and 2018, the local community is really enthusiastic about workcamps. If you look for a project answering a local need combined with an intense exchange with locals, Aach is the right place to be.

Work

Would you like to help children and young people have an unforgettable summer and get to know the Baltic Sea beach at the same time? Then help out with our spring cleaning at Brunswick’s children and youth camping site, on the Lenster beach in Grömitz.

You will be living in basic 2 to 4-bed rooms in the main building of the campsite, which is located just a few metres away from the sandy beach.

Work

The building itself is already finished; however, there’s still work to do in the surrounding garden area. Your main task will be the renovation of an old construction trailer: On the outside, you will add timber cladding and set up a terrace. Inside, a new floor is needed, and the walls need to be covered. Also, you will set up a ramp that allows people in wheelchairs to access the construction trailer. Once it is finished, it will be used by children to play in, and occasionally as a small “backstage area” for bands that perform in the “Adventure Land”.

Accomodation and food

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

Location and leisure

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.

Project hosted by

The community of Lauchringen is going to host an international workcamp for the second time. The project will take place in cooperation with the “Familienzentrum” (family centre), an organisation that offers various programs for people of all ages to meet, exchange and educate themselves.

Work

This year, you will work mostly at the local elementary school: Its playground needs to be refurbished. You will work with wood, remove old parts, install new equipment and paint it. The school is right in front of your accommodation, so you’ll have a very short way to the work site. During the first few days (as long as school holidays haven’t started yet), you’ll help out with various other tasks in the community. There’s always a lot to do, so just prepare yourself to work outside manually, fulfilling constructional / renovation / environmental tasks.

Accomodation and food

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.

Location and leisure

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. Furthermore, there are regular train connections to Freiburg (a university city with lots of students) and Lake Constance. However, the village is in a very rural area. The community will lend you a bus to make shopping and excursions easier, nevertheless, be prepared for two calming weeks in the Black Forest and far away from big city life.

Project hosted by

The community of Grafenhausen, located in the Black Forest, invites an international workcamp for the 4th 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). Grafenhausen is located at about 1.000 meters altitude; therefore the weather in spring is still unpredictable: Be prepared for warm and sunny temperatures, as well as coldness and rain.
