After 12 workcamps successfully lead, we keep working on the Larris Hill.
Just as the first workcamp we organized in Saint Maximin in 2007, volunteers will work on a botanic path in the old stone quarry, which is now full of vegetation. You will do land clearing, stairs installation and steps cleaning to make the access to the path easier. We also planned to teach you stone cutting through workshops!
The Youth Service of the city council of Saint Maximin planned to develop some activities during the summer such as the firework of the 14th of July (French national day) and some activities to meet the local population.
Accommodatie en maaltijden
You will be hosted in “Nelson-Mandela House”, which host some activities (music workshops, exhibitions…). You will use the kitchen of the house to cook meals for the group. You will sleep in 2 person tents, boys and girls separately, so you will have to bring a sleeping bag and a mattress. A big tent will be set to provide a living room. You will have an access to showers at the stadium (girls and boys separated). Camp leaders will have a budget and the group will participate to the shopping supplies and chores such as cleaning or cooking.
