This year we will focus on finishing the work on our Off-Grid House by working on different projects. In the middle of our ‘’park garden,’’ we have allocated an area for organic gardening. You should expect to be outside every day and work with garden tools. For instance, you will be making flower beds for herbs, building water channels for watering, or digging a chamber in the ground for keeping vegetables during winter.  It is all garden work done in a sustainable way, using nature, for nature! The area of the new ‘organic herb world’ is approximately 1000 square meters. We believe in being very aware, green and organic in our thoughts and talks, and in our way of living at the school. There will be a lot of different jobs to do with this focus. It could be making outside showers, heated with energy from the sun, or finishing a steam bath. There is always maintenance to do on former Work Camp projects/constructions. All projects will be focusing on environmental and green solutions. During camp, we will take time to debate sustainability - not only as an environmental issue but on all levels - including sustainability among people and cultures. Please be prepared for practical work for 6-7 hours a day. There will be two camp leaders who are former students from the school, and different work leaders to teach you how to build and work.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

Accommodation: You and the other volunteers will be sleeping in tented camps. The host provides the tents and mattresses, but you will have to bring your own sleeping bag and pillow. Food: The food is mainly organic and is served three times a day by our kitchen staff. You should expect to assist after dinner, by cleaning the dishes. At the weekends, you will take part in cooking dinner. Bathroom Facilities: You will have full access to the showers and toilets at the school for all three weeks. It is possible to use the school's washing machines for free.

Locatie en vrije tijd

Brenderup is located on the island Fyn in the central part of Denmark. The village Brenderup (2.000 inhabitants) is close to the beach, forests and idyllic countryside. You will have free access to our different workshops during the camp, including recycling design, music, art and gym workshops. There is wireless internet at the school. Bicycles can be rented for the whole stay. Your Work Camp leaders will help you and the group with organising activities in your spare time. It is free to enjoy the beautiful nature around Brenderup, but some activities might require an extra charge. The host will not cover additional charges.


Brenderup Folk High School (or the Academy for Intercultural Learning) are hosting this Work Camp. The school is working as a boarding school with an international approach and accepts both Danish and foreign students. You can read more about the school here: http://www.brenderuphojskole.dk/filer/english.htm   For many years, the school has hosted Work Camps that have supported the building process of their environmentally friendly buildings, such as a straw bale culture and music hall, an ellipse-shaped “lotus house”, which is functioning as a workshop for outdoor living activities, a treetop shelter and an organic fitness centre in our garden, where nature is used instead of artificial machine equipment.   Last year we incorporated ideas and concepts from previous years about building sustainability. We call it our Off-Grid House. It is a house that is producing everything - all energy - within its own walls. Last year we also decorated and made paths in our garden between all our sustainable houses.


We have no more COVID19 restrictions in Denmark. This basically means that our everyday lives are back to normal, with no masks, assembly bans and test requirements. There are still a few restrictions on entry into the country, but if you are vaccinated or recently infected, then there are currently no isolation or test requirements. Be aware, that airlines might have requirements regarding COVID-19. Though our restrictions are gone, we know that COVID19 is still a problem worldwide. We want to assure you, that you will be safe at the camps, personal boundaries will be respected, tests are still an option for no extra cost and you can wear a mask if you wish. We will of course also inform you of any changes. Volunteers are expected to be ready to share their culture with the other participants and students at the school.  It will be amazing if you are also a green thinker! English will be the only language spoken. All participants must be willing to speak English, even though being from the same country or have trouble with the English language. Try your best! Unfortunately, we cannot take a participant with disabilities.


The school is a folk high school and will have students and course participants (50 people from approx. 12 different countries) during the Work Camp. They have their own program but there will be many opportunities for volunteers to interact with the students, especially during dinner and through different social activities during the evenings and weekends. We want to make sure that you appreciate, that our Work Camp is not a party camp, - but a camp where we want to share our cultures. We do have our own parties though!
