The South-East Brandenburg branch of the “Sozialpädagogisches Institut” (Social Pedagogy Institute) foundation operates the “Bergschlösschen” intergenerational centre in the city of Spremberg. This year will be the 18th time that an international workcamp takes place there. There are refurbishment tasks within the holiday resort in the neighbouring community to be completed. It has been planned for the workcamp to start to prepare this project (dismantling work), for which we will need your energetic support. In the city of Spremberg you will have the opportunity to get to know a bit about intercultural work with refugee children, adolescents and families and to enrich this work with your ideas – such as with childcare, for example. You will experience the traditional local festival in Spremberg up close and will help to organise the children’s party with us. You can also actively support the Spremberg film nights on the open-air stage in the city. Besides this, you will have the opportunity to be creative and artistically engaged. There will be numerous opportunities to get to know the local landscape and people during this camp. There is an additional administration fee of 50 € for participants who are not from Germany.
