On the first day volunteers will get some orientation about the project, the institute and the surroundings. Together with members of the art club, you will help to redesign and embellish the outdoor area. One of the main tasks will be to re-construct the lakeshore fortification, the seating arrangements and the paths. There are also some sculptures in the forest nearby, which will be cleared from grass and moss. There is a great variety of tasks where volunteers can support the project, in general it means physical work with tools you need for construction works, renovation and wood work.
During the time of your stay, there are other youth groups on the premises, such as an orchestra, a wood building class and an artist group. On the middle weekend of your stay it is planned to work on the tasks together with the club members and then have a summer garden party along with guests of the institute. Volunteers of the workcamp are invited to give a contribution to this event as well.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

Volunteers will prepare and eat their meals in the outdoor summer kitchen (just protected by a shelter and open to the nature at the side) of LIKK. Due to the restrictions against the corona pandemic, access to this kitchen will be only allowed for the current kitchen team. To comply with the distance rules, all participants will sleep individually in tents. If you can bring your own tent, it would be great, otherwise local host will offer one for you. Tents can be build up at the shore of the lake or inside a building. Shower and toilets are available for personal hygiene.
Please note: In Summer, it can be quite hot, so you will need sun protection. But German summer can be cool as well, especially if it is raining. So please do not forget to bring warm clothes as well.

Locatie en vrije tijd

Kloster Lehnin is a small town consisting of some small villages situated around the main village Lehnin. It is 65 kilometers Southwest of Berlin. Brandenburg an der Havel and Potsdam are the closest cities. On the opposite shore of the lake Klostersee, there is the oldest Cistercian monastery of Brandenburg, founded in the 12th century. Today it hosts a guest house, a clinic, a retirement home and a museum. The village Lehnin was always connected with the former monastery and is situated in a beautiful landscape with many lakes and wood land. In the European Middle Ages the monastery was an important religious, cultural and commercial center and there are still many buildings that you can see how it looked like in earlier times. The church is an impressive building and lots of concerts are offered during summer.
Volunteers will learn about the cultural concept and work of LIKK and the integration of Lehnin inhabitants with various cultural and social backgrounds. You can find a piano to play, or you can bring your own instrument and find someone to join you making music. Volunteers will get free entrance at the lake swimming pool next door, and can visit the cities of Potsdam and Werder. Another highlight will be a turn on our Canaletto boat on the lakes connected to the Klostersee where you can enjoy its rich flora and fauna. As there will be contact to German native speakers, the workcamp is a good possibility to improve your German language skills. The LIKK rowboats and canoes can be used by the volunteers. There will be offered a guided tour through the premises of the monastery.


Please bring workwear and raincoats, sleeping bag, camping mat, bathing suit, music, your talents and something specific from your country. As you can spend time at and in the lake, you should be able to swim.

*Special remarks regarding the COVID-19 pandemic*

In order to minimize the risk of infection, the group size of the workcamp is smaller than originally intended. In this way, you will have enough space inside the accommodation to keep a safe distance from each other. Moreover, in this project the accommodation is quite spacious and has a nice outdoor area that you can use. The work itself will take place mostly outside in the fresh air as well. In addition, other safety and hygiene measures will be carried out, such as providing hand sanitizer & facial masks, information on proper handwashing, coughing& sneezing techniques etc.
We will make sure that your workcamp experience is as safe and enjoyable as possible! Feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
