Come to celebrate with us the 10th workcamp of Nogent-sur-Oise!
The mythic workcamp continues the momentum with the mixt of local and international teenagers. You will be closely integrated into the life of the community, in the animations with the children of the leisure centre and in the retirement home.
This year we will work on the heritage but also on the natural environment of the city. Because the region is known for its stone quarries, the volunteers will naturally work with the local material: the Saint-Maximin stone. You will reorganize natural spaces next to the center of Nogent-sur-Oise and will also create reception facilities in local stone.
In brief, it will be a rewarding experience with international, intercultural and intergenerational exchanges.
Accommodatie en maaltijden
You will sleep in tents separated for boys and girls. The living/eating room will be indoor, at the football stadium and next to the municipal swimming pool. Don't forget your sleeping bag and your swimsuit! The group will be sharing the cleaning chores and preparing meals together.
Locatie en vrije tijd
Nogent-sur-Oise is a town of about 20 000 inhabitants located in the region Hauts-de-France, in the middle of the department of Oise, near Creil (3 km) and Chantilly (14 km), and 70 km from Paris. Rich in Gothic cathedrals, the region also has a varied heritage and a strong history to be found: Chateau de Chantilly (14 km), Palais de Compiegne (20 km), Chateau de Pierrefonds (15 km), the Armistice Quarry (15 km), etc.
The municipal swimming pool is located near the accommodation, so you will enjoy it!
Don’t forget, the French July 14th national holiday falls during your stay, so you will have the opportunity to attend the fireworks of Nogent-sur-Oise!
