Arbeit

The work of the international volunteers will be divided in two parts, help in the kitchen and organise activities with the children. Kitchen Working hours usually are 8.30am to 3.30pm (morning shift) or 5pm to 11pm (afternoon shift). Tasks in the kitchen include help in the preparation of the meal (potatoes and onion peeling and cutting), preparing salads, washing the dishes and keeping the kitchen in good clean condition. The volunteers will coordinate with the kitchen Greek volunteer team and the Chef. The working environment includes all tools to make the work easier, for example a professional dishwasher. Volunteers will alternate in the morning and afternoon shifts. Children Activities Volunteers will prepare and organize activities during the morning (2 hours) for the children including games, handicrafts, dancing and music (if possible). The team will coordinate with the Greek volunteers responsible for the free-time children activities and will be given everything needed for the implementation of the tasks. Activities will also be based on the skills of the international volunteers, so make sure to inform us of any special and creative skills you might have (like music, dancing or anything else that might be helpful). It’s important to bring your creativity and your own culture to blend it with the rest of the team and with the children. The team responsible for these activities will be the afternoon kitchen shift. Meaning that those volunteers who are going to start working in the kitchen at 5pm they will dedicate two hours in the morning to organise activities with the children. Optional If you are willing and as part of your own free time, you can also participate in the afternoon sport activities with the kids. Some painting and garden works are to be done. Some optional creative activities will be arranged, depending on your will and disposition. Greek and foreign Volunteers are collaborating in many tasks.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

Very basic. The volunteers will sleep all together in tents equipped with beds, within the camp area as everyone else. The floor of the tent is made of cement, but you will need a warm sleeping bag. There is WC and showers near the tents but no hot water. There is no WiFi and the cell reception for mobile phones is very bad (it might allow for phone calls and messages but internet will be extremely slow). Food: It will be prepared by the Chef of Camp. It will be Greek and traditional. There will be options for vegetarians in the menu but not many. Weather: Usually quite warm at that period (25o–35oC), but during the night it might become a little chilly. Rain is expected at least during few days within the duration of the workcamp. The location is on the feet of a mountain with rich flora (about 400m altitude).

Lage und Freizeit

The Camp is situated at Agios Georgios, on mount Pateras, 33 km to the north-West of Elefsina (or Elefsis) and 55 km from Athens: https://goo.gl/maps/xFnrNViAEH52 It is located several km away from the nearest village, and it is only reachable by car (no bus connections to the camp site). CiA will arrange means of transportation to/from the campsite. Free days: Three free days will be arranged during the workcamp. According to the shifts and working demand there might be the chance for some extra free hours but this will not be for the whole group and it will be organised on an individual level.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

For 87 years the organisation “Happy Children Happy Youth” has been supporting children, who face serious problems such as financial (families whose income is at the limit of poverty or lower), family (orphans or children of single-parent families), social (racism and marginalisation) and communication problems (language problems or learning difficulties), because they come from families of immigrants or refugees. The Organisation sets up summer camps which offer free hospitality to 140 children. The constant values surrounding the organisation are love for the children and the people, the certainty about the inherent talents of every individual, equality for all, freedom of speech and thinking, regardless of race, age, sex or religion. The camp schedule is well studied and includes different physical and artistic activities. Living together for 20 days with the 50 trained Greek volunteers, offers to the children some love and care they miss. The organisation believes that summer camps are useful and important for every child. That’s why we try every year to give the possibility of enjoying our hospitality to more children, in improved facilities with more experienced volunteer staff. Nobody at the organisation is allowed to earn money from these activities. Even though the world is becoming more and more impersonal and harsh, especially for the weak (financially and socially) and their children, “Summer Camps Happy Children - Happy Youth” dream to always be able to host as many children as possible while constantly upgrading their facilities and improving their program. Those goals will be made possible thanks to the voluntary effort and knowledge of many people who, with joy, imagination and love, will create small human societies for children and young people that will enable the expression of their skills and feelings. Greek volunteers are working constantly during the winter to organise everything in order to live together this summer experience.

Arbeit

The workcamp aims at the protection of the environment, the preservation of cultural heritage, and the enhancement of local sustainability. The Municipality of Thermo has a network of ancient footpaths, spreading in the mountain village of Amvrakia. These paths are widely used by locals, tourists as well as hikers. By supporting the building of new paths, volunteers will help to facilitate local peoples transportation. Under the guidance of two local craftsmen who will be their supervisors, volunteers will help to clean parts of rural spaces where the danger of fire is high. Furthermore, they will clean, highlight, preserve, and reconstruct the ancient footpaths in and around the village, created by ELIX, volunteers and local partners during the previous workcamps. Volunteers will also help to clean the local system of water supply in order to ensure better quality for drinking water in the village. Volunteers will work for a maximum of 6 hours per day, with an early wake-up due to the hot sun.

Arbeit

The project work is built around the age-old activity of grape harvesting. Wine making goes back to ancient times in Nemea area, indeed it was produced before 1000 BC., but it still is the largest wine producing area of Greece. Volunteers will work outdoors, they will gather grapes from vineyards which will after be used for making red and white wine from indigenous varieties whose tradition goes back thousands of years. Volunteers will work from Monday to Friday from 6:00H to 12:00H. Wine gathering will start early in the morning, in order to avoid the summer sun of August. After one or two days of practicing, volunteers will need to keep up the pace with the other people who will work for eight hours in the fields.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

The volunteers will be housed in a technical school building in Nemea which includes a dormitory and kitchen facilities, as well as a gymnasium. The dormitory is provided with beds and mattresses, but volunteers need to bring their sleeping bag. There are toilets, showers (no hot water) and cooking facilities at the school. No internet wi-fi. Air-condition is not available in the school, but there will be fans. Everyday two different volunteers from the group, in shifts, will be responsible for maintaining the group accommodation place clean, as well as for the preparation of all the meals for the group of volunteers.

Lage und Freizeit

Nemea is an ancient site in the northeastern part of Peloponnese, a famous region of Greece. Formerly part of the territory of Cleonae in ancient Argolis, it is today situated in the regional unit of Corinthia. The small village of Archaia Nemea is immediately southwest of the archaeological site, while the new town of Nemea lies to the west.After midday the volunteers will have many opportunities to visit Nemea sites, but also to make excursions in wonderful spots, such as ancient and medieval Corinth; the beautiful town of Nafplion with its many Venetian and Byzantine castles; Mycenae and the Agamemnon tomb, a Mycenean period grave excavation at Aidonia; and many other sites. Nemea is also famous for its athletic games which rivaled every four years the games at Olympia, the precursor of the Olympic games. The archeological site in Nemea includes an interesting Museum and the old stadium where the games were held. Volunteers will have a chance to have a swim on a sandy beach under the imposing castles of the picturesque town of Nafplion. They will sample Greek authentic food and they will be immersed in the culture and history of Greece spanning a period of 4000 years.Last but not least, the volunteers will participate in the project during a lively period, as festivities are held to celebrate the Vineyard harvesting with the local Festival called -Great Days of Nemea- organized by the Nemea Winery Association and the Municipality of Nemea. The -Great Days of Nemea- is a very important event that takes place every year in the area of Nemea as well as through activities all over Greece, aiming at promoting not only the PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) NEMEA wine based on the Agiorgitiko variety, one of the most dynamic and famous varieties in the world, but also the development of wine tourism in the region.

Arbeit

Volunteers will work to renovate and improve the facilities of Chatzini square, an open area at the Northern border of the village, that has been used in the past for concerts but has since few years not been maintained properly. The work might include: • paving the entree path to the square with stones, as in the traditional local style • replacing rotten wood in the fence and benches • arranging the lights system • building a fountain made of stones • setting up a watering system for the trees • creating labels for the nearby mountain paths • organize the opening ceremony of the newly renovated square Local technicians and villagers will support the volunteers by teaching how to develop the tasks and working themselves together with the group. Volunteers will work 5 hours per day from early morning, 6 days per week. Any changes in the working schedule and/or type of work will be discussed and decided as a group and in close cooperation with the local host.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

Volunteers will be hosted in the premises of the youth camp site of Ag. Lavrentios, in small houses equipped with bunk beds and mattresses. Toilet and showers with warm water, are provided in the camp site location. The site is located within the area of the village. Volunteers will be given all necessary equipment and materials from the local host and they will prepare their meals in shifts: the cooking area is not located in the camp site but in another facility within the village. We will cook using local products and we will adapt our menu to the supplies available.

Lage und Freizeit

Aghios Lavrentios village lies at 600 m altitude on the slopes of Pelion Mountain, birthplace of the mythical centaurs. Maintaining its traditional architecture that goes back to 14th century AD and surrounded by a lush forest, it is located in one of the most beautiful regions of mainland Greece, combining both mountain and sea areas. The village is solely built of local stone, including its characteristic cobbled streets that can be crossed only on foot or by horse and donkey. Visits and environmental excursions to the nearby historical villages can be organised as well as daily excursions to the river running at the bottom of the valley and to the beaches of the Pagasetic Gulf of Volos (the town is 19 km away). Volunteers will also have the opportunity to attend the open public events of the Music Village, a renowned international festival that will take place in the village on the same days on the workcamp, and that will bring together an international music community of teachers and students that organize and participate in workshops and open concerts (the teachers of the festival will also be hosted at the same camp site of the volunteers). Camp leaders will organise free time activities in co-operation with the volunteers and the local partner. The host organization does not cover free time activities expenses.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The local community of Aghios Lavrentios (Saint Laurence) village, the Orthodox dioceses of Dimitriados. After an inspiring workcamp in 2018 to restore the traditional fountains of the village (tinyurl.com/y5hsxotq), the inhabitants of Ag. Lavrentios invite again the international volunteers in their beautiful stone-built village to help revive and give visibility to the enchanting Chatzini square, an open space under majestic trees and with a stunning view on the surrounding mountains. The local community would like to renovate fully the square in order to make it the artistic center of the village summer activities, and to revive the cultural offer of Ag. Lavrentios towards visitors and nature-lovers from Europe and beyond.
