In this workcamp, you will support the forest school “Waldschulheim Indelhausen” by protecting the forest around and you will take part to their programme of non-formal learning about nature. In the mornings, you will be working on different environmental tasks to help maintain the surrounding biosphere area. Your tasks will be: • planting and preserving forest crops; • grooming specific biotopes (ex: juniper heath); • clearing some areas; • (de)constructing protection fences; • maintaining certain paths in the forest. In the afternoons, you will be learning more about biodiversity with the forest rangers. This is a special project for nature lovers and people interested in learning about nature protection work. The project is part of the 2022 IBG agenda: “Let’s take action for climate protection – volunteering for forests and peatlands”.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

You will be accommodated in shared rooms directly in the forest school. The rooms have 2 to 4 beds each (with a mattress, bedsheets, a blanket and a pillow). There are showers with warm water and bathroom facilities on each floor, which can all be separated by gender. In the building there is also a dining room, 3 common rooms and a gym hall which you can use. Wi-Fi is provided. Meals will be prepared and served by the school, which means you will not have to cook nor wash the dishes. You will get breakfast, lunch (warm) and dinner (warm or cold) in the forest school. Please let us know if you have allergies or intolerances. The forest school tries its best to serve regional, local and bio food.

Locatie en vrije tijd

The “Waldschulheim” is located in the small village of Indelhausen in the middle of a geopark and at the southern end of the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve “Schwäbische Alb” in southern Germany. This area features diverse mountainous and cultural landscapes, protected ecosystems with rare plants and animals and notable forest, meadow and orchard habitats. In line with our efforts to focus on workcamps within the field of nature protection the region is highly suitable. The surroundings are perfect for outdoors activities like hiking. It is very rural, and there are many great view-points and various old castle ruins that are worth visiting.


The forest school “Waldschulheim Indelhausen” is a pedagogical institution founded in 1977. The building used to be the village school and now serves 1,000 students and teachers every year as a non-formal learning place on the topic of forest and nature. Groups of students of the grades 7 to 9 of all school types usually stay here for two weeks and participate in different tasks of simple forest work, an educational program about the forest and excursions as well as games, fun and sports. There will certainly be other groups of young students in the Waldschulheim at the time of your workcamp and you will have the possibility to exchange with them. You can take a look at the place here By participating in this workcamp, you are actively supporting biodiversity (UN SDG 15) and help us work against climate change (UN SDG 13).
