International Workcamps

In my workcamp, I noticed how many possibilities there are to communicate even if you don't speak the same language.

Participant in a Workcamp in France

What is an international workcamp? In an international workcamp, young people from all over the world come together to work on a voluntary project for 2 to 3 weeks. Various projects in the areas of nature conservation and environmental protection, construction and renovation, archaeological, social or artistic fields offer a wide variety of possible work.

The working time is usually about 30 hours per week. Depending on the project, the group consists of 6 to 20 volunteers of different nationalities. The camp language is usually English, but sometimes also French, Spanish or any other language.

More information on registration, participation and preparation can be found here.
