Arbeit

The camp is designed as a place for socializing, mutual communication and inclusion of people with developmental disabilities with volunteers from the regular population, who come from different cultures and environments.
Volunteers will work in the "Oasis" on everyday activities with the users of the house. Main activities are activities that our users also engage in daily life: maintenance and arrangement of work and living space; tidying up the yard and plot; pulling weeds and working in the garden (planting, hoeing, watering, crop care and harvesting); sorting of the obtained fruits and vegetables - separation for feeding in the camp, for distribution to socially disadvantaged members of the local community, for livestock and for compost; feeding of animals and maintenance of premises where animals stay; going to the local environment to empty recycling containers with PET packaging, pressing the packaging, visiting vulnerable families from the local community.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

Camp Oasis Golubinci gathers people of good will who are ready to help and provide support in life and work to adults with developmental disabilities. Oasis Golubinci is a living and working community for people with disabilities, and in the Oasis itself there is accommodation for volunteers and users. Volunteers will be accommodated in houses that have all the necessary equipment (sufficient number of bathrooms, kitchen, dining room), in double and triple rooms. All houses/accommodation units are in the same yard, so volunteers are directed to each other, although they may be in separate houses. Given that there are 4 different kitchens, there are opportunities for volunteers to participate in the preparation of food themselves, and the association can provide the necessary food, according to our capabilities. Volunteers will be provided with bedding.

Lage und Freizeit

The camp would take place in Golubinci (a village/town in the municipality of Stara Pazova), 8 km from the town of Stara Pazova. The town has about 5,000 inhabitants, it is a multicultural environment, the majority of the population is of the Orthodox faith, but the Catholic population is also very represented. In the center of the town there are Orthodox and Catholic churches, a supermarket, a post office, a school, a kindergarten, a health center, cafes... It is interesting that the castle Schloss (from the 18th century) is located there, which is accompanied by stories about curses, infidelities and punishments. It has significant architectural and historical value because Karađorđe Petrović and composer Ludwig Van Beethoven stayed there.
Various manifestations are held in the town itself throughout the year: Cat Festival (masquerade ball and carnival), Days of Rosemary, Earth Day... During the volunteers' stay, the celebration of Petrovdan - the holiday of the place - will be held, during which numerous outdoor activities will be organized and a fair in which enjoyed by all the locals.

Arbeit

This is the 25th year (big jubilee) that this camp has been active in YRS and the long-lasting tradition speaks to itself. After 20 years we spotted the Glossy Ibis, bird that is so important to this wetland area. It is one of the few places in Europe where you can see it and that's why the role of volunteers is so crucial in helping to maintain the area.
The work consists of taking out invasive species and bushes while clearing up the wetland soil that enables it to be inhabited. During the workcamp, the participants will have educational workshops on preservation of wetlands and their role in the ecosystem.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

The volunteers will stay in the two renovated ethno houses in Kupinovo, located in Ethno Park (https://www.turizampecinci.rs/туристичке-атракције/етно-парк-купиново/).
The food for participants will be prepared together with the host on the workcamp, from groceries that will be provided for them.

Arbeit

You will definitely be a part of history that fought for their nature in this area.
Work will be divided into cleaning and marking of two paths that lead up to the highest point of Stara planina ("The old mountain" in Serbian) as well as the local natural swimming pool "Zenski vir". Also, you will help to clean the spot for creating small picnic area at the end of the first path, at the top, where the view on the surroundings is magnificent.
Taking care of the river will also be your task during these days.
Second part will be the support of organizing the festival for nature lovers - arranging the centre of village, setting up the stage and info counters while on the day of the festival, volunteers will support the workers in handing out flyers and in the whole production.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

Accommodation for volunteers will be provided in the adapted building of the agricultural cooperative "Topli Do" - the mountain lodge Topli Do. Accommodation is provided for volunteers in two four-bed rooms. Sleeping is on military beds, blankets and bedding are provided. The building of the mountain lodge itself is a village building adapted for these purposes and is used as a lodge for adventurers and mountaineers throughout the year. The home has a toilet, a bathroom and a shower with hot water. Our local partner, the "Stojanovic" farm, prepares meals for volunteers and other festival participants during the camp and the festival. Meals will be served in the canteen on the premises of the agricultural cooperative Topli Do.

Lage und Freizeit

The village Topli Do is about an hour's drive from Pirot. Topli Do, one of the most remote villages of the municipality of Pirot, is located in the Stara planina nature park under its highest peak, Midzor (2,169m).
It is located in the Stara Planina Nature Park. The village is one of the most authentic villages on Stara planina. Only 7 km from the village is the peak Babin zub (1,759 m) and the famous ski resort Jabučko ravnište on Stara planina. The village is reached from the direction of the village of Temska and you pass through the canyon of the river Temštica ("Little Colorado"), certainly one of the most beautiful and attractive canyons of this type in Serbia. What makes Topli Do and its surroundings stand out from other old mountain villages is the abundance of waterfalls, unique in many ways in Serbia. A special attraction about 4 km from the village is the Piljski waterfall - 64 m. About 8 km from the village there is another interesting waterfall, Kurtulski waterfall - 27 m.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

Arbeit

The camp actually begins with the preparation of the camp and setting up the tent, when those who have not had the opportunity until then will learn how to assemble the tent and the rules for setting it up. There will be a training workshop where we will talk about public speaking, how to overcome stage fright and how to put together a good presentation for a good lecture. After that, volunteers in groups of two will choose a topic (with the help of professional associates) that they will work on in the first three days of the camp, in order to present the chosen topic for the next four days. The topics will be aimed at solving the problems that we have already mentioned.

Work will include mountain trails clean up and the participants will have the possibility of creating posters and involve the local youth to join them.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

Volunteers will sleep in tents, on mats, which will be provided for them, but it is preferable to bring their own bag. Most of the tents will be for three and four people, but we will also bring one tent for ten people. Volunteers can bring their camping gear which includes all of the above. In case some people do not have their own bags, we can provide them.

There will be three or four people on duty every day, who will be in charge of preparing, setting up and serving meals. They will certainly not do it alone, but with the support of camp leaders and researchers.

Lage und Freizeit

Povlen mountain is situated in Western Serbia, 30 km from the city of Valjevo, and around 120 km from Belgrade, the capital. Its evergreen forests, as well as deciduous, alongside picturesque meadows, leave mark in everybody's heart. Also, the mountain offers many hiking opportunities, which end with breath-taking views from the top. Three highest summits that could be reached easily are: "Veliki Povlen" (Big Povlen; 1271m), "Srednji Povlen" (Middle Povlen; 1301m) and "Mali Povlen" (Small Povlen; 1347m; interesting fact that "The big one" is not the highest, but "The small one"). Also, the summit "Jablanika" is very near the accommodation, so there is another option for relaxing excursion during the free time.

It is good to mention that there are few monasteries (even from medieval period) in the surroundings, so the visits to those jewels of the area may also be arranged.

There will be, as well, few lectures given by the experienced mountaineers about cultural and natural treasures of the area.
