This project is a long-term project which will probably be separated in 2 to 3 years depending on the teams’ capacities. In 2019 we will ensure the water is flowing nicely through the wash house. This means taking stabilizing stones, rebuild the pond’s rim and making the wash house waterproof again. In fact, the water isn’t running properly at the moment which makes the site hardly accessible during rainy seasons. The first step is to ameliorate the flow directed to La Bure river. You will be supervised by a technical leader to help you gain knowledge and feel at ease with patrimony renovation. A bit of painting will be done at the Castel in order to refresh rooms for the people hosted by the association “Les petits Frères des Pauvres” (Little Brothers of the Poor) all year long.

You will be hosted in single rooms at Morainvilliers’ Castle; a bourgois house built in the 18th century. The place is administrated by Little Brothers of the Poor, an association which combat loneliness and social isolation among the elderly. Therefore we may organize an afternoon with a group of elderlies, even thought volunteers will be the only Castel’s residents during the workcamp. You will find peace and calme in it’s hood as well as some squirels or deer. A kitchen staff will be preparing meals for you.

The region of Yvelines, in which the project is located, is full of hitorical and beautiful sites to visit. Such as The Castle of Versailles, several pedagogical farms, the Seine river bank. You may be surprised to hear that, while close to the French capital, 50% of the land is used for agriculture and 30% are woods and forests. You will live in the heart of a small peaceful town!
Along with volunteers and campleaders, you will decide on activities for the afternoons and the week-ends. We are looking forward to hearing your ideas! Games, lunches with local population, excursions and bike tours in the region can be organised. You will also have the possibility to visit Paris and be guided by Parisians themselves, what an orginial way to discouver the city! Get ready to join an unforgettable experience, share, and learn during this workcamp!

The small town of Morainvilliers is crossed by the river La Bure and located at the gate of the regional forest Grands Bois (Big Wood Forest). It has been 12 years since the town organises biking and running trails/races (10, 21 and 35 km) : the “Old wash house trail”. The trail crosses woods, historical sites, and ends up at the wash house of Morainvilliers. Over 700 visitors each year take up the challenge of the races or attempt to the Nordic hike. There is also an alternative trail for kids! By participating in the wash house renovation, you will add value to the local patrimony and the event itself. You will live, work and share everyday life activities with all volunteers. A technical and a camp leader will be there to lead you all along the workcamp.

There is no WIFI access on the workcamp site, but possibility to connect on some public networks. Places for 17 years old are very limited (maximum 1 French volunteer with fewer opportunities)
