Bringing together volunteers from around the world to create in a few days a place for young (and not so young) people to meet, discuss, play, exchange or rest in the shade in summer! This is the collective objective of this workcamp, which is proposed by the council town of Saint-Eloy-les-Mines. Alongside local young people, you are invited to participate in the construction of a place that is not equipped, located in front of the House of local Organizations. The members of the office and the municipal youth council are thinking about the facilities to be built: tables, benches, deckchairs, wooden furniture, decoration, wooden shelter, planters, flowers, the project could take different forms. The young people want it to be cheerful and colourful! With a technical leader on your side, you will learn basic carpentry skills, use manual and electric tools, and build with your own hands. The tasks will be varied and your aim will be to create a landscape that is nice and sustainable.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

You will be accompanied by two camp leaders throughout your stay. You will be accommodated at the two-star campsite “La Poule d’Eau” in Saint-Eloy-les-Mines, in one-person tent. This is a pleasant campsite, situated under trees and next to a lake where swimming is allowed. You will have a large collective tent for socializing. Washing of clothes by hand or possibility to use the campsite washing machine (paying service). The group will be sharing the cleaning chores and preparing meals together. The budget will be allocated to the group leader and you will participate in the preparation of meals with good products from the market and local producers. Travelling on foot from the campsite to the site (20 minutes).

Locatie en vrije tijd

There are several shops in Saint-Eloy-les-Mines. The city's advantage in summer is the lake near which you will be staying. Swimming is allowed on a fine sandy beach. The water quality is excellent and the average temperature in July and August is 24 degrees Celcius. Three walks and a fitness trail start from the site, to discover and admire Saint-Eloy-les-Mines and its surroundings. You will discover the wild and natural region of the Combrailles, located in the heart of the Auvergne, with a high granite plateau, Volcanoes and the natural Sioule river. During your stay, you will enjoy the town's summery energy and the countryside right on its doorstep (hiking, swimming in the lakes, local party, etc.).


This is the first time that Saint-Eloy-les-Mines has hosted an international workcamp. It is a town of 3,800 inhabitants, with a new dynamic. During your stay, you will meet the Mayor who is only 25 years old and who will be happy to talk to you. The local youth will be mobilized to welcome you, participate in the workcamp and help you discover the life of their city.


Foreigners belonging to the European Union must bring with them a personal EHIC (European Health Insurance Card), and everybody must, in any case, bring their insurance certificate. If health issues arise on the project, volunteers will have to pay for it, and will then be reimbursed once back in their home country.


Bring work clothes, walking boots and a backpack. Nights can be chilly, so bring warm clothes and a good sleeping bag. You can also bring recipes from your home country, musical instruments and games. You will get around Saint-Eloy-les-Mines by foot, car and punctually in minibus.
