The main work of the volunteers will be the preparation of the daily meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner) and coaching the youngsters during the art workshops – painting, drawing, writing, dancing, photographing, filming etc. Helping with the daily tasks (cooking, cleaning etc.) will be also a part of the Camp.
The volunteers will sleep in dormitories. It is simple, but there is a kitchen, toilets and showers.
Schwarzsee is blessed with nature’s bounty and lies 3’435 feet about sea level. The village is framed by impressive mountains and an idyllic mountain lake is nearby. The River Sense Country is on the so-called Röstigraben. The rolling countryside appeals due to its magnificent landscapes and varied cultural assets – it is definitely worthwhile to stay a bit longer there!
Discovering the charming region of Schwarzsee with its fascinating wildlife and nature – ideal for nature lovers, families and sports lovers! Twice a week, volunteers will accompany the adolescents on an afternoon journey to the close by region. On the weekends longer excursions are planned. The evenings will involve social events where the volunteers can participate and enjoy.
The goal of the group “fRilingue” is to offer teenagers (age: 11 – 18 years) language Camps. The aim of “fRilingue” – Art Camp is to combine language courses (French or English) in the morning with art workshops in the afternoons. The special advantage of this project is the mixture of adolescents from the French and the German part of Switzerland. There will be some special programmes discovering the region in the nights and on the weekends. The youngsters will learn within the premises or outside if the weather is good.
Volunteers should be interested in art and have skills in painting, drawing, photography or filming for example. We are looking for mature persons. The international Workcamps consist of small groups of three Volunteers, additionally they will work together with Swiss Volunteers from fRilingue. If you are interested to be a part of this workcamp please send a motivation letter and an example of your art work. Age: 20+!
