Accommodatie en maaltijden

The stay will take place in the facilities of the public school of the municipality of Catllar, "Institut Escola l'Agulla". The participants of the camp will have at their disposal the gym, an area where the base camp will be set up. The school is located in the upper part of the municipality, close to the town center and the technical works area. In the gym there will be a rest area for mats and luggage. The area will not be separated by walls and there will be no gender distinctions in terms of layout. - Changing rooms and toilets are indoors and are separated by gender. Hot water is available. - Still not sure if WiFi will be available. - Heating: even though it is quite hot we recommend to bring at least a change of long trousers and a long sleeved t-shirt. - Food: lunches and dinners will be catered. An area with a fridge and tables will be set up to store breakfast and snacks, and volunteers are not required to cook. If any person requires a specific diet, such as celiac or vegan, they must specify it at the time of registration.

Locatie en vrije tijd

El Catllar is a municipality in the county of Tarragonès in Catalonia, Spain. The town of El Catllar has an old town centre crowned by the Castell del Catllar which sits on the remains of a fortified settlement from the Iron Age (7th-5th centuries BC) on a hill overlooking one of the meanders of the river Gaià. Although written documentation places its beginnings in the 11th century, when the river was the border between the Catalan counties and the kingdom of Al-Andalus, archaeological excavations indicate that the origins of the fortification date back to the Muslim period or even earlier. Fourteen km towards the coast is one of the last forests stretching along the sea in Catalonia, part of which is a small nature reserve (under the Tamarit-Punta de la Móra Special Plan for Environmental and Landscape Protection). Also on the coast, it is home to the remains of the Roman Villa of Els Munts, which is part of a larger UNESCO World Heritage Site. During the afternoons, volunteers will participate in complementary and leisure time activities: workshops, fauna observation, excursions, debates and other activities that will be prepared between all the volunteers. There will be the option to organize extra activities with extra cost depending on what the volunteers want to do. For example, an excursion to Port Aventura World Park.

Organisatie

The environmental association La Sínia was born in 1997 with the main purpose of offering services and activities related to promoting conservation and restoration knowledge about natural, cultural and historical heritage of the Baix Gaià territory. In 2009 they started to manage the river zone of Gaià and its surroundings. Their tasks as an association are: 1. Restoration and conservation of river zones. 2. Study and recuperation of its biodiversity. 3. Promoting environmental volunteering though many activities they organize monthly. The association is formed by a multidisciplinary and experimented team in environmental education, leisure in the nature and conservation of the territory and biodiversity.
