Duitsland | Natuur en kinderen
Samen met 11 andere vrijwilligers ga je voor 14 dagen naar een natuur en kinderenproject.
Het project duurt van 22 juli t/m 5 augustus.
Every year, the hiking club offers outdoor holiday activities for about 30 children aged 5-12 years. They are very happy to get your support in organizing games for the kids and are looking forward to your creative ideas. Since the children do not speak English, it might be very helpful to know at least a few German words and/or bring games that can be played easily, without difficult explanations or language skills. Secondly, the area of the “seven ponds” needs to be taken care of. It is an area in the midst of the forest with a few lakes, terrace-like arranged and flowing into one another through small streams. In 2014, the first workcamp in Heidesheim took care of the area, which was overgrown with bushes and trees. Four years later, maintenance work is needed again: You will clear vegetation, cut free the lakes and paths in order to be accessible for visitors.
The group will stay in the sports hall; all necessary sanitary facilities are provided. You will be able to use the kitchen of the hiking club’s house, which is located at your working place. For transport from the sports hall to the work place/kitchen, bicycles and a car (for 9 people) will be arranged.
Heidesheim is a community with approximately 7600 inhabitants. It is located near the well-known river Rhine. You can go hiking or cycling and enjoy the beautiful Rhine valley with its picturesque towns and castles. Heidesheim is only 10km from Mainz, the state capital and university town with many cafés, restaurants and clubs.
After a two-year break, the hiking club of Heidesheim is inviting international volunteers for the third time! There are two main tasks to do, so the group will split up every day. You will have the chance to try out both, depending on your preference; and since both projects take place next to each other, you will still share your breaks with the rest of the group.
Please provide a Motivation Letter together with your application: Why would you like to take part? Do you have first experiences with working with kids and/or in environmental projects?
You should be able to ride a bike!
