The first two days will be dedicated to prepare the activities and the schedule of the project (the people with learning disabilities will arrive the 13th of July). From the 13th, the volunteers, CBB staff and disabled people will spend 24 hours a day together. The CBB staff and the volunteers will be in charge to organise the leisure time (excursions, walks, games, parties, etc.), daily life and the meals. During the project, each volunteer will be responsible to enhance the active participation of one or two individuals with learning disabilities. If, at the beginning, you are wondering what’s going on, after two days you will be amazed by the jarring atmosphere. While respecting the rhythm of everyone, we are all there to enjoy ourselves!

Accommodatie en maaltijden

We will share a cottage. We will have several shared bed rooms and all the modern facilities, but you will need to bring your sleeping bag. Meals will depend on your cooking talents (self-catering).

Locatie en vrije tijd

The village of Vergnies is located in a rural area in a well-preserved zone in the Southern part of Belgium. The biggest complex of artificial lakes of the country is located at only 10km. Charleroi is located at 50 km. Be aware that the village is quite isolated.


The aim of this camp is to offer to people with light mental disability the possibility to go on holidays with young international volunteers. During the work camp, they share leisure time activities, make cultural visits and, above all, have fun. Thanks to this stay, people with learning disabilities can leave their parents, their daily life, and spend time with other adults of their age. They wouldn't be able to go on holiday alone. Volunteers and the CBB staff will accompany them in their leisure time and help them with their daily tasks. There will be 12 people with learning disabilities, 8 volunteers and one group leader. The disabled people are between 18 and 50 year old.


This project request volunteers with a high level of motivation for the theme of inclusion. The volunteers must have a basic knowledge of French. A previous experience in group animation or in work with people in situation of mental disability is welcome. In order to demonstrate their motivation and French knowledge, we ask the candidate volunteers: -to send us a short motivation letter in French (do not be afraid to make mistakes, BUT please do not use any automatic translator!) -to answer our specific questionnaire (if you do not have it yet, please ask it to your sending organization). We will not confirm any placement request before the examination of the documents. The camp language is French.
