Begues is a municipality in the comarca of Baix Llobregat in Catalonia, Spain. It is situated in the south-west of the comarca, and its municipal territory covers most of the Garraf massif including the peaks of el Montau (658 m) and LaMorella (594 m). Begues is an important tourist centre, and it is connected with Avinyonet del Penedès and with Gavà by a local road.

Free time and leisure activities will include group games, workshops and cultural activities in order to learn more about Catalan culture and traditions and the area. Moreover, these activities be related with social issues and will give the change to the participants to express their ideas and thoughts about them.
Some other activities will be:
• The Timbalers de Begues organize a workshop to introduce volunteers to the festive atmosphere.
• "Castells": with "Els Encantats de Begues", which welcomes the volunteers and explains the
tradition of castles in Catalonia.
• Dinner with the 639 youth association that will allow the volunteers to connect with people from the village of similar ages and interests and share experiences.
• Participation in the nocturnal ballad of "Agrupació sardanista".
• Collaboration in the traditional dance event organized by "Òmnium Cultural".
• Outdoor recreational activities: games, excursions, orienteering, archery...

Some of the leisure and cultural activities will take place outside the town of Begues, in this way
that the participants can get to know the nearest territory and important tourist destinations such as city ​​of Barcelona. The most prominent outputs are the following:
• Route to the Garraf beach: In this itinerary we want to make known the natural characteristics of a very particular Natural Park, such as the Garraf, with an extraordinary geological formation. The itineraries that pass through the main areas of chasms and karst erosion in the area will be covered and will end with a swim on the beach.
• Excursion to Barcelona: one-day visit where you will visit some of the most emblematic museums, such as the MAC, the MNAC or the MHUBA.

The archaeological work carried out during the work camp will allow progress in the research project of the archaeological site in which other volunteers participate during the year and will help to reveal the importance of the cave in the population of Begues.
In order to ensure a good temporary integration in the village and to know the most relevant aspects of the activity in the life of Begues, the organisation works so that young people go in contact with their people, their associative fabric and their institutions, organizing activities together with other entities or receiving training or workshops by these.
