Tracy le Mont was hit by World War I. The town is still marked by this conflict and the city council would like to preserve these traces in order to maintain the duty of remembrance.
Volunteers will participate to the renovation of a little warden station coming from WWI.
To be done: masonry, jointing and vegetation clearing. You will also help with the maintenance of the information boards and the memory path in the heart of the forest (sanding, glazing) to guarantee the sustainability of this memory trail. You will also have to take an active part in the activities, particularly the ones on the 14th of July (French national holiday), for the fireworks and the torchlight parade.
Accommodatie en maaltijden
You will be sleeping in tents, girls and boys separated, behind the Victor de l'Aigle village hall in Tracy le Mont. The village hall has an equipped kitchen (community oven, dishwasher, etc.), a large room for meals and sanitary facilities. The village hall is adjacent to the village library for those who love reading. The showers are located at the football stadium, about 1 km from the village. Bicycles will be at your disposal to get there. You will share the various collective tasks and prepare meals together.
A budget will be allocated to the camp leaders and you will participate in the shopping and the preparation of the meals, favouring as much as possible local products by taking advantage of the local market which takes place twice a week in the commune (Wednesday and Saturday morning).
