Location: Laguépie, located 90 km northeast of Toulouse, between Gaillac and Villefranche de Rouergue.
Leisure activities: You will organize yourselves together and enjoy many leisure activities like going for a swim or a walk, participating in the festivities of Laguépie and it’s surrounding area, pizza dinners, game nights, and visits to the exceptional medieval villages of Najac, Cordes-sur-ciel, and Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val.
Pebbles, colors, families, and messengers of peace, you are invited to spend time with your children by participating in workshops together and meeting other families of diverse cultures. Originating from a direct partnership with the town of Laguépie since 2009, our project will take place in multiple buildings located at our site in the Mayounelle, where one part, renovated to this day, is an office for the permanent employees and the other part will become an international hosting centre. This project is the work of long-term international volunteers, international teens participating in workcamps, and local volunteers. The idea behind this project is to foster a relationship between these different groups with a tangible achievement. Therefore, you will play a key part in this cultural intermingling and will bring your stone to the concrete construction of a world where tolerance and peace will be essential.
Participation fee: 50€ for children under 10, 100€ for participants of ages 11 and up
