During this camp we need to prepare our centre for the next workcamp season. The centre needs cleaning works like raking dead leaves, cleaning the yard or piling up the leaves.
You will need waterproof clothes in case of bad weather. Other small tasks during the camp may include maintaining or renovation works inside and outside.
Accommodatie en maaltijden
You will live at the centre in heated bungalows with up to 5 other volunteers and an own bathroom with a shower and WC. You wont bring a sleeping bag, bed linen will be provided. There is no washing machine and limited internet access in the centre.
You will have the chance to prepare your own meals in a small kitchen. Feel free to bring your own recipes for our international evenings.
Locatie en vrije tijd
You will live and work in the Projekt- und Begegnungsstaette. It is situated in a forest on the banks of the lake Langer See in Berlin. Its a quiet place, a bit far from the centre of Berlin (but there are good public transport connections).
Free time activities will be decided in accordance with the groups wishes. You can use the facilities at our holiday centre to play sports (volleyball, table tennis, kicker). Of course you will be able to enjoy the sights and culture (theatres, clubs...) of Berlin and go for an excursions (e.g. Potsdam).
Dont forget to bring strong shoes, lots of warm clothes (it might still be cold in Berlin), towels and toiletries and anything for entertainment. You don’t have to bring a sleeping bag, a roll mat or bed sheets! Please be aware that the place is a bit far away from the city and it won’t be possible to go to the city every day and for individual trips you have to pay yourself. Of you have it you can bring an International Student card (ISIC) to get reductions on local transport, museums, etc.
Please be open for any kind of work. According to the weather there can be done tasks inside and outside and sometimes there are unforeseen works to do.
We ask the volunteers to make sure that their travel is compatible with the most recent recommendations of health authorities with regards to the spread of the Corona virus. In case you are travelling from or recently travelled through a higher risk area, please check the health recommendations of the country where the project takes place, as restrictions may apply (e.g. ban, quarantine, isolation). We will take the necessary health precautions for our projects, but please contact your sending organisation to get more information in case you have any concerns.
