*** French version at the end of the description ***

Auvergne region has 80 extinct volcanoes and 36 of which are in Haute-Loire department, where you will stay! Some are big, some are smaller and they don't all have the same shape. This workcamp will be the opportunity to invest in one of them!

The name of your volcano: the Suc of Ceneuil, located in the commune of Saint-Vincent, a few kilometres from the village. It is a small volcano, once topped with a castle and of which some remains can still be seen. A cross and a beautiful orientation table are at the top. A discovery trail leads from the village to the Suc. From the GR40 (a variant of the Santiago de Compostela way), the summit can be reached by two paths, one of which is particularly steep.
The main objective of the workcamp will be the restoration of the path leading to the summit of the Suc de Ceneuil, in order to allow as many people as possible (including children and older persons) to get on top, where the viewpoint is a nice reward.
You will be accompanied by a technical camp leader who will guide you through the various tasks to be carried out. For example, clearing the brush, shaping the path, creating wooden steps and water drainage channels, etc.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

Saint-Vincent’s school, located in the village, will be made available to the group. You will sleep on camp-beds on the floor, in two rooms on the first floor (girls and boys will be separated). Showers and toilets are also on the site. 100 meters from the school, you will have the fully-equipped kitchen and a large activity room for socializing, in the House of associations. The group will be sharing the cleaning chores and preparing meals together. The budget will be allocated to the group leader and you will participate in the preparation of dishes with good products from the market and local producers. Free WIFI in the village.

Locatie en vrije tijd

Saint-Vincent is a small town located on the way to Santiago de Compostela, in the department of Haute-Loire, in the region of Auvergne, 17 km north from the city Le-Puy-en-Velay. The village is located close to Loire, in the Velay County, a territory comprising natural spaces and unique heritage. You will have the chance to go swimming in lakes, hike up to beautiful viewpoints, make barbecues on the island of Cheyrac and visit the city of Puy-en-Velay (UNESCO world heritage). The summer festivals will also bring special energy to your camp.


Bring work clothes, walking boots and a backpack. Bring warm clothes and a sleeping bag. You can also bring recipes from your home country, musical instruments and games. You will get around Saint-Vincent by foot, by car or by minibus.
Foreigners belonging to the European Union must bring with them a personal EHIC (European Health Insurance Card), and everybody must, in any case, bring their insurance certificate. If health issues happen on the project, volunteers will have to pay for it, and will then be reimbursed once back in their home country.
