International Work Camps

For me, it was very impressive to see how quickly we grew together as a group. And then, swimming together in the lake at night and sleeping by the campfire brought us even closer.

Participant in a Work Camp in Canada

In an international work camp, 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.
