The community of Heilsbronn is counting on your help for a fitness trail and a barefoot path in the forest which are very popular for locals and visitors of the city. In this workcamp, you will help maintain a fitness trail help extend a barefoot path that the kids of a local school love. One part of the project will be to maintain the “Vita Parcours” fitness trail in the forest. This means: • clearing the trail of over-grown plants along the paths and on the different stations; • cleaning the signs and stations; • picking up the trash along the trail. Another part of the work will be to help renovate and expand the barefoot path, in front of a special school called “Schule der Phantasie” (“School of Imagination” in English). Along this path, children can walk barefoot and experience different natural textures like moss, gravel, pine cones, wood etc. The work will be led by a professional instructor from the builder’s yard, so no previous experience is needed. You will work 30 hours per week, somewhere between 8am to 4pm from Monday to Friday with a lunchbreak on site.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

You will be accommodated in the local youth club called “JUZ”, right above the city’s builder’s yard. In the youth club, there are two big open rooms and one smaller room. You will sleep on mattresses on the floor. Please bring a sleeping bag! In addition, there is a small kitchen, a common room with sofas and games for you to chill, two toilets and one bathroom. You might also have the possibility to use the builder’s yard’s showers during the evenings. In the house, there is a washing machine and a Wi-Fi connection. The local youth who usually visit the club are looking forward to welcoming you and getting to know the international volunteers. Volunteers will be responsible for grocery shopping and cooking together. The food will be bought with the camp budget and everybody will take turns for cooking and cleaning. In order to reduce our carbon footprint on the planet, we encourage volunteers to reduce meat and try more sustainable dishes.

Locatie en vrije tijd

Heilsbronn with its 9,300 inhabitants is located in the idyllic Bavarian region called „Franken“(Franconia). The town lies along a path known as the “Way of St. James” or “Camino de Santiago”. For this reason, the town is frequently visited by tourists as well as pilgrims. Apart from the traditional, half-timbered houses, the town has a couple of unique sites, such as the Romanesque monastery and the local cathedral. A guided tour might be organised for you, if you’re interested. Besides, the town can arrange free entrance to the outdoor swimming pool for the volunteers. Nature-lovers can find several hiking trails in the beautiful surrounding landscape. The cities of Nuremberg, Bamberg and Rothenburg ob der Tauber are not too far away and might be visited on weekends.
