Le Domaine de Chevetogne is located in the countryside. By choosing this workcamp, the volunteer decides to live in the nature. All around, there are fields and woods. As the domain is also a tourist centre, there are plenty of opportunities for entertainment: outdoor swimming pool, football fields, minigolf, and tennis or basketball play-grounds…
During the weekend, it will be possible to organize cultural visits and to travel to the biggest Belgian cities. The town of Ciney is 10 kilometers away from the Domain of Chevetogne.
Le Domaine provincial de Chevetogne is a big centre for environmental education and social tourism. There is a huge park situated on 550 acres and a modest castle.
Pupils from primary and secondary schools come there to participate in activities focusing on discovering the nature and rural way of life. During the summer, many kids and families make a one-day excursion to the Domaine or stay there for holidays to do sports, picnics, observe nature.
Motivated and professional staff from Le Domaine de Chevetogne hopes to share their passion for the environment with international volunteers.
There will be limited Internet access during the camp available just from time to time.
It’s compulsory to take working clothes, raincoat and working boots with you.
