The workcamp group will have different tasks this year: Volunteers will support the community of Burk with various kinds of renovation and maintenance work: You will help renovate about 80 wooden benches that the community had set up for its senior citizens and paint an open hall at the graveyard, which is offering some shelter from bad weather. There will also be some restauration work at a forest hut that is being used by the youth and young groups, such as scouts. Of course you will also help with the preparation of the festival. Just be spontaneous to help out wherever a helping hand is needed!
The workcamp group will stay at the local primary school’s building. Please bring your own sleeping bag! For cooking you can use the kitchen of the fire brigade’s house next door. All necessary sanitary facilities are available.
Burk is a small village in Bavaria with 1100 inhabitants. It is surrounded by beautiful nature with forests and hills perfect for hiking. There are a couple of nice lakes in the area, too. The cities of Nuremberg or Wuerzburg can be visited on weekend trips.
For the sixth time the small community of Burk invites an international workcamp this year! The last camps were a big success, so the community is happy to repeat the international experience. In the first week of July, the village will hold a small fair. You are – of course – invited to join the celebration, experience Bavarian culture and meet locals right in the first couple of days of the workcamp.
