All the tasks are related to the revaluation of the green area around the regional educational centre. You will cut grass and bushes and clean the ground of the centre. But you will also continue the creation of an outdoor kitchen. The workcamp last year already set up a pizza- and bread-oven. You will construct a barbecue and a place to prepare food. The outdoor kitchen will be used for different educational actions with youngsters. In addition you will support the open-doors-day of the centre on Sep 7th.
You will stay in several wooden tepees for five persons each. Mats are provided. In the centre you will have your own kitchen and living room and sanitary facilities. For the free time you will find perfect conditions: billiard, plenty of outdoor facilities (campfire, basketball, football, volleyball-). The public swimming pool is just nearby.
Kell am See is a village 30 km from Trier in a beautiful landscape. The area is well known for cycling, walking and other ways of outdoor activities. The local holiday resort offers more than 200 holiday bungalows next to a lake (close to the educational centre). But also people from the area come here for cycling (there is a 45 km cycling path on a former railway roadbed) or to spend a nice day outside. The region also offers plenty of historic sites (castles, museums-.). You will also get the opportunity to come in contact with local associations as e.g. the local voluntary fire brigade. But public transport is poor during the weekend, so the number of excursions will be limited. But for sure Trier with the famous Roman sites, with the cathedral and birth place of Karl-Marx can be visited.
Kell am See is a touristic village not far from Trier, the oldest German city. The regional youth department runs an educational centre in this village, which offers different environmental educational activities for youth groups and school classes. Also school classes or youth associations can come here for several days and run own seminars or trainings. The centre was just renovated a couple of years ago and different new outdoor and training facilities were installed.
You absolutely have to arrive before 7 p.m. in Trier to catch the last bus to the campsite
