Come discover one of the most beautiful village of France, Chatillon-en-Dois, whose medieval architecture is soothed by the warm sun of the south Vercors.
Known for its vineyards, the town is also the keeper of many cultural and natural wealth that you will discover both during hikes or walks but also during the workcamp, which will be a mix of heritage preservation and enhancement of natural spaces. In the geographical site of the Col de Cote Chevre, remains at the same time natural landscapes, a strong biodiversity and also traces of human activities. Two main elements are there for you to witness; A stone cabin now in ruins tells the story of human activity such as livestock farming and haymaking, and an alcohol still from the 60’s, in an old shelter, being the testimony of the farming of lavender that stopped in the 80’s. These two spots have a strong patrimonial value and could become a perfect place for the many tourists and hikers to take a break and learn about this regional history, since they are on the way to the famous Rocher de Combeau.

You will be staying in individual tents on a grassy spot next to the city hall of Chatillon-en-Dois (Les Nonieres). You will have access to an indoor space whit toilets and showers and where you will be able to prepare and have meals. The space will also offer shelter in case of bad weather.
The group will be accompanied by camp leaders in charge of both group life and technical aspects of the workcamp, in exchange with our local partners, e.g. the eco-guards of the Natural Regional Parc (PNR) of Vercors. 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 grocery shopping and in the preparation of meals, prioritising products from the market and local producers.

Chatillon-en-Dois is a village (600 inhabitants) of the Drome region known for its medieval centre and its vineyards. Since 2019, chatillon-en-Dois is what we call a new town, being the result of the administrative fusion with the nearby village of Treschenu-Creyers. This new town gathers now Chatillon-en-Dois and 5 other villages: Mensac, Menee, Archiane, Les Nonieres and Benevise. Many touristic highlights are located there; small and charming original streets, vineyards with its specific cabins, valleys going through the south of the Vercors such as the Gorge du Gas and the Circus of Archiane, and the high plateau of Vercors easily reachable by foot from the valley of Combeau. You will have the opportunity to hike and discover this territory with the eco-guards of the park.

For over 15 years, Concordia has been working with the PNR Vercors. Thanks to this strong partnership, Concordia is able to offer to volunteers coming every year to different parts of the park a discovery of this wonderful natural and cultural identity and heritage. On the hand, the PNR Vercors sees in this partnership a perfect way to partner up with volunteers and local municipalities in order to promote and work on the preservation of the natural spaces.

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.

Take with you gloves and work clothes. Shoes with a high and notched upper are imperative. Temperatures can be really high during the day and cool at night, take clothes accordingly to this. Don't forget sun protection (a hat or cap is essential, sunglasses with a high protection factor because of the intense reverberation, sun cream with a high protection factor IP30-50...) and a swimsuit for swimming or for activities in fresh water.
Take a sleeping bag (10°C comfort level) and a pillow case, you will be able to put things in it and create a nice pillow. You will also need to bring a backpack (on top of your travelling bag), comfortable sneakers and flip-flops. It will be useful to have you the following items: phone charger, reusable water bottle, plaster set, head or portable light.
We will plan convivial times in collaboration with our leaders and according to your wishes. If you wish to share a bit of your culture (cooking recipes, traditional stories, unusual objects, music...), feel free to put a little piece of your country/region in your backpack.
