This year’s workcamp consists of two projects: Firstly, you will undertake improvements on some local playgrounds for children. This will involve for example earthwork, concrete work and paving work on the sites of the playgrounds. Secondly, you will support a cycling event, where the contestants have to climb a very steep hill by bike. At the end of the camp, you will join the “100 years of workcamps” celebration in Berlin.
Accommodatie en maaltijden
The accommodation will be on the first floor of a youth club, with all facilities needed, such as: kitchen, a shower and a bathroom. Participants will sleep on sport mats. The volunteers will interact regularly with the local youth who visit the club often. During the anniversary event you will stay at the “Jugendherberge am Ostkreuz” in Berlin.
