Locatie en vrije tijd
You'll spend your workcamp right in the middle of nature on the paradise that is the old brickworks and its grounds. You're invited to try out every kind of outdoor activity available to you: swimming in the lake or small pool, cycling, playing football and table tennis, and - during the evenings - sitting around the campfire to watch the stars. There's a lake for swimming nearby that's easily reachable by bike. Besides this, there are also cats and sheep in the area who might be ready to go for a walk with you! And of course, you could cycle into the nearby small towns of Calau or Gahlen in the evenings, or even travel to Berlin, Dresden, Leipzig, Poland or the Czech Republic at the weekend.
This camp is particularly aimed at nature lovers.
There is an additional administration fee of 50 € for participants who are not from Germany.
