This camp is organised through the town of Lößnitz in cooperation with the Affalter Nature Hostel (http://www.naturherberge.de/). The camp will also be supported with the assistance of children from the 9th class at Lößnitz secondary school. The grounds of the Affalter Nature Hostel consist of the hostel itself, a farmer’s garden, several orchards etc. You will be supporting the “Apfelsaftprojekt” (apple juice project) – harvesting several different types of apples, pressing the fruit and also planting new trees. Since this project relies heavily on good weather, there are also many other tasks and projects that you can work on, such as “designing natural materials” or building birdhouses. We are also happy to incorporate your own ideas or suggestions into the previously mentioned projects to include your interests.
You will be staying in the Affalter Nature Hostel
The group will prepare and cook meals together.
There are many interesting ways to spend your free time in Lößnitz, and you could also take a trip to the “Erzgebirge” (Ore Mountains) to discover more about the region (pure nature, historical old towns and mines, trips to cities such as Dresden, Leipzig etc.).
