Dare to be in the mountains... the high mountains! In the heart of the Mercantour National Park, at an altitude of 2200m, lies the magnificent Sanguinière hut. Built over a hundred years ago from dry stone, this hut was used to shelter shepherds. Now out of use, it will be the focus of this original and unforgettable project. For those who love the mountains, outdoor life and evenings under the stars, for sports enthusiasts, for those who want to learn to live with the bare minimum... dare to go to the mountains!

You will be leading the restoration of the pastoral hut, at altitude, using traditional techniques (dry stone) for the walls and the construction of the larch under-roof. The technical aspects of this project, as well as life in the mountains, require you to be in good physical shape.
Our aim with this project is to return to the origins of international work camps for young volunteers. The location is exceptional, and life in the mountains is unforgettable. It's a unique project that has been organised by several partners.

Taking part in this work camp requires you to be physically and mentally fit enough to: climb the mountain with a lot of weight (your bags, food, tent), live in the high mountains with the bare minimum (no internet), swim in high mountain lakes, respect nature (flora and fauna), sleep in a tent, take part in the restoration of a dry stone pastoral hut, hike back down to the village (1h30min walk each way).You will be asked to provide a letter of motivation for taking part, in which you can describe your experience and/or your desire to take part in this type of project.

Accommodation during the week will be in individual tents, in the high mountains (2200m altitude). You will set up the tents and your bags on foot (1h30min walk).Cooking will take place in a hut close to the Sanguinière hut, where a gas cooker and (rustic) cooking equipment are installed. The toilets will be dry and the showers solar-powered.

Weekend accommodation will be in the village hall, which is a hard-standing building (very large single room, mattresses on the floor). There will be solid sanitary facilities and a well-equipped kitchen.

You will share the various collective tasks and prepare meals together. A budget will be allocated to the leaders and you will help with the shopping and meal preparation, giving priority to healthy, local produce.

Saint Pons is a very small commune in the Alps (Ubaye), just a few kilometres from Italy. Backing onto the border with the Italian Piedmont, with which it shares almost 33km of ridges, the Mercantour massif is the last promontory of the Alpine arc to the south, before it plunges abruptly into the Mediterranean Sea. From the summit of Gélas, the highest peak in the Mercantour at 3,143 m, you're just 50 km from the sea as the crow flies!

The commune of Saint Pons, which is very active in mobilising its young people and protecting the mountains, together with the Mercantour National Park, is hosting this first youth work camp in 2024 to restore the La Sanguinière pastoral hut (2200m). It is important to respect the rules of life in the high mountains, so as not to disturb the fauna and flora present.

SPECIFIC MOTIVATION LETTER NEEDED - related to the fact that the project takes place in the mountain in altitude (2200m). Basically, you need to have the love for the mountains :) and ability - physical and psychological - to live in the moutains with basic conditions.

You'll need to bring your own mattress (ground sheet or inflatable mattress) and winter duvet. Nights in the mountains are cold, so bring warm clothing. For work and life in the mountains, bring good footwear suitable for both activities. Don't forget to bring sun protection (hat, sunglasses, etc.). A headlamp (rechargeable if possible) is also necessary, as well as external batteries for charging lamps and phones. There will be no internet, but there will be a few telephone network points in the mountains (depending on the weather and your geolocation). You can also take along recipes from your country/region, musical instruments and games.

The last day (17/07) is devoted to departure, usually in the morning.

Het inschrijfgeld voor dit project bedraagt € 345, exclusief € 50 korting voor studenten en jongeren onder de 18.
