Come discover the local’s heritage and world music ! Week 1 : Discover an ancient and traditional game: the Landes bowling game called “Quilles”! Quilles was practiced until the 1950s, in the cafes-bowls of the village or at family reunions. Somewhat fallen into disuse, this sport practice was revived in Saint-Paul-les-Dax in 1992 by the association "Quilles de trois". The game is played outdoors on an area covered with gravel or concrete delimited by a stop. You will have the task of building an awning for the practice of the game of Landes bowling, traditionally called "quillier". Week 2 & 3 : http://www.temposdumonde.com/ As a bonus, take part in the 22nd edition of the "Tempos du monde" festival which puts forward cultures and music from all over the world! On the magnificent site of Lake Christus, the project will consist of preparing, animating and closing the new edition of this event in a colorful, musical and spicy atmosphere. Your tasks will be varied! You will participate in the communication before the festival, in the assembling and dismantling of the festivities spaces as well as its wooden decorations (construction of chilling space, lounge area ....)

Accommodatie en maaltijden

You will be accommodated in tents where you will find a very nice viewpoint of the surrounding countryside. Sanitary facilities, kitchen and communal living room will be available. You will share the various collective tasks and prepare meals together. A budget will be allocated to the group leaders; you will participate in the grocery shopping and the preparation of meals, prioritising for healthy and local products. Many highlights of local activities and the association will punctuate your stay.

Locatie en vrije tijd

Next to the town of Dax, the small spa town of Saint-Paul-les-Dax, located on the way to Santiago de Compostela, preserves from its past a beautiful religious building that is the church of Saint-Paul (classified as a historical monument). Saint-Paul-les-Dax also has many green spaces conducive to relaxation, as evidenced by the French park of the town hall and the shady shores of Lake Christus, a peaceful body of water, populated by ducks and geese.


Saint Paul-les-Dax is a Landes city of nearly 14,000 inhabitants that has inscribed at the heart of its project democracy, solidarity, the preservation of the environment and the enhancement of natural, tangible and intangible heritage. With a very rich associative life both in the sporting and cultural field or inscribed in the dynamics of solidarity, it strives to offer the volunteers of these associations a living environment likely to allow the best possible development of their actions. This is why the municipality called Concordia to promote one of these typical heritages: the Landes bowling game and the "Tempos du monde" festival. This volunteer project aims to promote the meeting and exchange between volunteers and the local population while introducing a traditional sport and a Landes festival. Animation and intercultural exchange actions will be coordinated by the youth service. For more information : http://www.st-paul-les-dax.fr
