An old railway line that crosses the Pays du Valois has been transformed into a soft lane for pedestrians, bicycles and rollerblades. In the heart of the village the old railway of the nineteenth century made of cut stone has suffered from time and weather. An association was created to save it. Your job will be to take back the masonry, to cut stones and put joins between them in order to set everything together according to traditional techniques.
You will sleep in tents, with boys and girls separated, and you will use the community hall for daily life. The group will be sharing the cleaning chores and preparing meals together.
Betz is at the boundaries of the Oise and Aisne departments, between Crépy en Valois and Meaux.
Betz is a village at the heart of the Valois region, historical territory linked to King François the 1st. With its 1000 inhabitants, it has a rich history thanks to the Monaco princes and the King of Morocco. Nowadays, the City council keeps strong bonds with Morocco thanks to a city pairing. The town has a high school and wishes to encourage youth participation as well as making the village beautiful. After the success of last year’s workcamp, we are continuing the project for the third time in a row! The locals are expecting you, especially for the celebrations of the 14th of July!
Please take working clothes and gloves, and good shoes. For the accommodation under tents, bring your sleeping bag and floor mat. Please feel free to bring some food specialties, pictures, musical instrument: things you like and want to share with the group and the local community! Foreigners belonging to the European Union must bring with them a personal EHIC (European Health Insurance Card), and everybody must, in any case, bring their insurance certificate. If health issues happen on the project, volunteers will have to pay for it, and then be reimbursed once back in their home country.
Meeting point: Crépy en Valois train station. Closest airport: Paris.
