The small community of Rainau needs your support for two projects: first, you will help them renovate the local nature kindergarten and second, you will help them run a highlight of the summer: a festival by a lake on August 14th! This year, the community in Rainau is inviting a group of international volunteers for the second time. They count on your help to design and arrange the outdoor area of a nature kindergarten close to the village district of Dalkingen. You should expect a lot of manual work outdoors! The other project where your help is needed is the so called “Seefest” (“Lake Festival” in English), which is a summer beer garden by a lake in Rainau. Your job will be to • support the preparation and organisation of the Seefest; • assist with the set-up and dismantling of the lake festival area (e.g. set up benches, tables and small wooden huts); • support local volunteers with cleaning up the festival area while and at the end of the festival. The event is a perfect possibility to meet local people! The work will be led by a professional instructor, so no previous experience is needed. You will work around 30 hours per week. Your group will commonly decide on how to spend your free time.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

Your accommodation will be in the sports hall in the village part of Dalkingen. You will sleep on camping beds in one very big room (around 90sq m), please bring your own sleeping bag! In the building, there is also a small kitchen for you to use. The many toilets and showers of the sports hall are at your disposal. They can be separated by gender. Next to the accommodation, there is a sports field and a big outdoor area that you can use during your free time or to take your meals outside. In the accommodation, Wi-Fi is provided. Your group of 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

Rainau is a community of five different villages in Southern Germany (Dalkingen, Wailer, Buch, Saverwang and Schwabsberg). Altogether, about 3,300 people live here. A nice lake called the “Bucher Stausee” is only 2km from your accommodation. The lake is a big leisure area, where you can swim, rent a rowing boat, play beach volleyball, go sailing or fishing or have a barbecue in one of the designated areas. Not very far, you will find a second small lake, which is a protected nature area. Swimming is not allowed here, but you can do bird watching,observe beavers or other animals. Rainau also has many sights from the Roman period like the Roman Limes (a rampart more than 500km long) here. You’ll have the chance to visit an old Roman watch tower or the ruins of a Roman bath. In addition, the area is perfect for hiking and other outdoor activities and you will have the opportunity to go on excursions to the cities nearby.


Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, all volunteers need to be either fully vaccinated (2 to 3 shots of one of the following vaccines: BioNtech/Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca or Johnson&Johnson) or recovered (date of infection must be at least 28 days old and max 90 days old).
