Travail

The cottage in Han sur Lesse welcomes families, schools and groups of all kinds throughout the year… Thanks to you, the organization would like to improve the quality of the place, and therefore the atmosphere for the public. Your team will carry out various tasks, mostly outdoors, in order to create spaces where people can gather, meet, interact… You will help to redevelop the surroundings of the cottage by building a barbecue and a picnic area and improving the soccer field. If you work fast, several other small tasks await you, such as the creation of special habitats for insects to enhance the biodiversity of the place.

Logement et nourriture

Your team will be accommodated in the cottage where you will work. Full boarding will be provided during your project and you will sleep in shared rooms (2 rooms with 4 bunk beds and 2 rooms with 6 bunk beds). Each room is equipped with a sink, a toilet and a shower.

Situation, loisirs

Han sur Lesse is a countryside village located in the valley of the River Lesse in an area which attracts many visitors both for its natural beauty and for the nearby caves of Han. The closest train station is 10km away – Rochefort-Jemelle (a bus line operates to the train station – just a 12 minute ride). Belgium is a quite small and cosy country, most cities and nice places are easily reachable by train. Brussels is about 1h45 away from Han sur Lesse.

Partenaire

Travail

Assisted by local technical leaders, the volunteer group will realize different manual tasks outdoor in order to improve the surroundings and make it enjoyable for the numerous nature lovers (when the weather is nice). The first task you’ll be doing is building a bridge above a small brook and renovating a rural wash house. If you work fast, several other smaller tasks can be done, such as renovate a protection wall, two small fountains… You will most likely also contribute to the maintenance of the work done during previous workcamps, a very nice way to connect with those who came before you! BEWARE: This workcamp is based on manual and outdoor tasks which might be sometimes hard.

Logement et nourriture

Accommodation can be compared to a boarding school (Saint François complex): a corridor with double bedrooms; toilets and showers are at the same floor. No smoking inside. Self-catering. Bring your recipes to enjoy ‘kitchen life’! A big barbecue will be organized at the beginning and at the end of the camp.

Situation, loisirs

Marche-en-Famenne is a city in the countryside and it is also home town of CBB! You can find everything here: schools, supermarkets, industries… But still, it is surrounded by woods, fields and small villages where the life rhythm remains rural. Liège, Namur, Brussels and Luxembourg can be easily reached by train in about one to two hours. For more information see: www.marche.be

Partenaire

The Marche-en-Famenne workcamp is the outcome of the collaboration between municipal authorities and a local non-profit organization. More than fifteen years ago, the mayor and deputies wanted to improve international contact for the local youngsters. At that time GRIMM association had just begun the work on the protection of the local life and promoting models of sustainable development. Their members had many ideas but were short-handed to realize them. Then, they came to the idea of involving volunteers from all over the world. Ever since then, the municipality makes their facilities available every summer and welcomes youngsters from all around the world. GRIMM members organize the work, with the help of volunteers, so they are finally able to realize the projects they have dreamt about. Their actions are based on the following philosophy: Nature belongs to everyone. And if each of us is to enjoy it, it has to be protected. They have been organizing workcamps for 15 years!!! Your help will ensure the renovation and improvement of the rural landscape of Marche-en-Famenne (UN SDG 11 Sustainable cities and communities, UN SDG 15 Life on land).

Travail

The castle is used by many groups throughout the year and is therefore a little worn out by the hosting of so many children. It needs some renovation and refurbishing and we count on you to help in this! Assisted by local technical leaders, in the Domaine de Mozet, the volunteers will paint and refresh some bedrooms and other working rooms within the castle.

Logement et nourriture

Housing will be inside the castle. The volunteers will share a dormitory all together. Showers and toilets are at the same floor, next to the room. You will have a hot meal at noon on your working place. The other meals will be prepared on a self-catering basis. If you follow a special diet, let us know in advance, please.

Situation, loisirs

Mozet is situated 12km away from the capital of Wallonia – Namur (100.000 inhabitants). Nevertheless, the Domain is well hidden in the countryside and surrounded by charming valleys, forests and typical villages. Mozet is also recognized as one of the most beautiful village in Belgium. The closest train station is 5km away from the castle. During the weekend, it will be possible to organize cultural visits and to travel to the largest Belgian cities. BEWARE: the place is really isolated. (No market around).

Partenaire

The Domaine of Mozet is an old castle and a farm dating back to the 11th century. Now, with its 10 hectares, the castle is available for meetings and lodging kids so that they can discover biodiversity. The Domaine hosts field trips for pupils – special programs of 3-4 days dedicated to history, forest, wild and domestic animals, season changes etc. as well as animation – constructing huts, games and so on. Besides, due to its features, it is also suitable for youth groups: youth movements, schools, and theatre or sports groups for their activities.

Les Station de Plein Air, created in 1933, is one of the first playgrounds in Brussels. Upon request, the park can provide you with board games, books and comics.

The organization is located in a nine-hectare park, classified as a special part of Monuments and Sites of Belgium, only a few kilometers from the capital of Belgium. Les Stations de Plein Air wishes to promote an active and healthy occupation of leisure time among children and youth. It aims to develop their sense of creativity, their ability to live together and their sense of citizenship. As such, they are also very happy to be able to welcome young people coming from abroad, and they hope that a connection can be created between their young summer camps leaders and the group of international volunteers.
