The work has environmental and constructional tasks. The idea is to help renovate a house which will serve as a volunteering center in the future and to establish environmental-friendly and sustainable agriculture in the gardens of the center. The house is energetically self-suficient with solar pannels and used to be the De Amicitia headqutaers and needs to partially renovated to keep it in using conditions. Volunteers will carry out some basic tasks like painting, throwing out extra materials and organise and clean the spaces from unnecessary materials. There will be some other tasks in the garden like cleaning the bushes and plants. There may be some other similar tasks which will require creativity and hand crafts like carpentry and wood working.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

The accommodation will be done inside the volunteer house. There will be mattresses on the floor. Inside the house there is a bathroom with a shower facility and a kitchen. The volunteers will be cooking for themselves under the guidance of the camp leaders. Their living conditions will be very basic and rural. Sleeping bags and lower sheets are necessary to bring.

Locatie en vrije tijd

The house is located outside of the small town of Gargantilla del Lozoya. The house is very cut off from the rest of the world, being hidden away behind trees and not being directly connected to a road. There is a camping site in the closer area where there is a pool that probably can be used. Gargantilla de Lozoya is located in the Sierra Norte, north from Madrid. It lays in the beautiful hillside of the Sierra Norte, perfect for hiking and connecting with nature. Excursions are possible to the surrounding small towns, to Madrid, Segovia and maybe even Toledo. There are rivers close to Buitrago del Lozoya which are great for kayaking and other activities of the sorts. Buitrago de Lozoya is one of the most picturesque municipalities in the Community of Madrid and has an important mediaeval heritage. Its historic center is surrounded by a spectacular wall of Arab origin, surrounded in turn by the waters of the Lozoya River. Behind its ancient walls await the Castle (14th-15th centuries), the Church of Santa María del Castillo, the Clock Tower and even a museum with works by Picasso. The volunteers will have access to a car to be able to move independently as a group.


This project is organizedand hosted by De Amicitia. De Amicitia is an environmental non-governmental organisation that is funded in 1998 and actively working in the youth field and volunteering for 12 years. The main activity of the organisations is organising workcamps and local/ international youth projects in collaboration with the town halls and local associations.


The extra fee has be paid by card ( in the exceptional cases we can accept bank transfer as well) 3 weeks before the camp as a confirmation of participation. If we don't recieve the fee and the flight/bus tickets of the volunteer, we will consider that she/he will not attending to project and we will give opportunity to other volunteers that are on the waiting list.


Please keep in mind that this project is located in an area that is very, very rural. The group will be accompanied by several of De Amicitia's long-term volunteers.
