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.
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).
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.
In this project, you are working towards providing more young people non-formal education while building a sense of community with the local history and nature (UN SDG 4 Quality education, UN SDG 11 Sustainable cities and communities).
