Spanje | Archeologie en natuur
Dit is een tienerproject (15 t/m 17 jaar). Samen met 7 andere vrijwilligers ga je voor 14 dagen naar een archeologie en natuurproject.
Het project duurt van 2 t/m 16 juli.
Let op: naast het inschrijfgeld betaal je ter plekke nog een lokale bijdrage van € 150.
The volunteers will clean up a natural area called “Baños de la Reina“, an important Roman site of Calpe. For centuries it has provided fish to the bigger towns, such as Valencia, Alicante or Elche. Therefore it was essential to have a close resource of salt, in order to conserve the fish captured. Volunteers will prepare the site in order to allow the archaeologists to go on working in this historic place. The archaeological excavation is still going on. Because of the humid some unwanted plants (grass and so on) are growing on the excavation area. We will cut these little plants with scissors and clean the area a little bit. Volunteers may also be asked to help cleaning Las Salinas, a natural area with a pond made in the old salt mines now full of flamingos, that was was used to serve as the place to throw rubish. Work will be done Monday – Friday, approx. 6 hours per day. Volunteers are going to start working at around 8:00 and will finish at 14:00. After 14:00 they will be free to enjoy the beach. With the hot weather of Spain, work can be quite demanding for some volunteers. A video of the camp: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ywhzDuDHt8&t=14s
Accommodation will be probably at local school where volunteers will have to cook breakfast and dinners. Showers will be offered at the swimming pool. In case the permision to stay at the school is finally not given, accommodation will be offered in isolated house in the forest, offered to the volunteers by municipality (15 min walk to the city). Lunch will be offered at a canteen. Volunteers are required to bring lower sheets and summer sleeping bag with them.
Calpe, a town with a long history and deeply-rooted traditions, is also one of the main tourist destinations on the Costa Blanca. The Marina, the promenade and eleven kilometers of coastline, marked by cliffs, beaches and coves, are some of the many attractions. Another attraction is one of the symbols of the town, the Rock of Ifach, a huge calcareous rock, 332 meters high, that penetrates the sea and gave the town its name. Calpe is a beautiful touristic resort and it has many options for entertainment (concerts, excursions, swimming, archaeological sites, hikes).
Local partner is town hall of Calpe, we have been organizing this workcamp for several summers.
Physical work under hot sun is quite demanding.
