This camp includes physical work. The main task will be pasture
maintenance, carrying stones and other material to/from the willows. Other tasks include
removing small trees and bushes.
Accommodatie en maaltijden
Volunteers will sleep in beds, but should bring their own sleeping bag.
Mostly traditional food from Austria and especially from Tyrol will be served in the hut. The
accommodation is simple and quiet isolated on the mountain: There is almost no mobile
reception, no WiFi and only cold water for showers.
Locatie en vrije tijd
The camp will be organized in Tyrol, in the Western, mountainous
part of Austria. The camp site will be close to Innsbruck, which is the capital of the region.
Small letter of motivation is required. It is especially important that you
have mountainous experience, because you will have to hike to some of the working sites
before starting work and because most of the work will be in relatively steep areas. You
should be in good physical health and motivated to live in an isolated, non-urban
environment. You should have good hiking boots.
