La Chapelle Laurent's village is very enthusiatic to welcome a workcamp for the first time! Local councilors have implemented a program of typical heritage rehabilitation, and this is where we step in: we need to help the village to restaure its washing place. A specialised company will start working on the impermeability works before the workcamp and your mission will be to embellish the surroundings by restoring the dry-stone wall which supports the washing place. If the weather is good, why not go further and build benches with recycled materials to allow inhabitants to enjoy fully the place?! You will generally be working in the morning and will enjoy the afternoons visiting the region and participating to activities. The schedule will be adapted to the group's organisation in order to combine working and leisure time all together in a good mood!
Accommodatie en maaltijden
Acommodation is under tents (2 people per tent) in the municipal stadium. The tents will be provided. You will have to bring their camping equipment (ground sheet, sleeping bag, etc.). Daily life is organised by volunteers (shopping, cooking, and cleaning) under a common big tent. Showers and toilets are in a building of the stadium. You, volunteer, are actor/actress of your project! You will manage the tasks of daily life in teams (shopping, cooking, and cleaning). A rotation will be organised by the campleaders to ensure the smooth running of daily life. The objective is to gain autonomy and that everyone acts individually to allow a good collective functioning!
All together, you will think about how to work, feed everyone, have fun, get around, visit the region in the most environnementaly and human-friendly way.
A kitchen is installed under a a tend, showers and toilets are in a building, 50m away from the camp.
Locatie en vrije tijd
La Chapelle Laurent's village is located in the heart of the Cantal department, nearby the Haute-Loire department, in the region of Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes. The small rural villages are full of houses with typical stone roofs and wooden/stone walls. The villages have a very rich built heritage (bread ovens, chapels, castles). This region is the perfect place to go for a hike in the mountains, by foot, by bike, for practicing canoe, to visit and admire the small streets of the village, to go swimming in the lakes, according to what the leading team and the weather can propose. The leaders will prepare games and entertainment, but you will be invited to propose and organise your own activites according to your ideas and wishes, so bring your creativity!

Globally on our teenage camps, we chose to book half of the spots for French volunteers. The aim is to allow a maximum of young people to access intercultural learning, to promote volunteer's commitment as a first step and then experience international workcamp abroad.
