THE WORK CAMPS
A WORKING DAY
The day begins with breakfast and then: at work. That changes depending on the type of historical and architectural site of the work camp. In the morning we have a coffee break and some participants, by turns, prepare the lunch for the entire group!
In the afternoon we have the amusement activities, organized by the leaders together with the group. Then you can have a hot shower, dinner, you can spend the evening all together and eventually go to bed!
During the work camp we do also some guided tour of the surroundings and countryside with sports. (walks, horse-riding, bicycle, kayak or swimming pool, catamaran, climbing …) All camp activities will be organized and directed not only by the leaders, but also by a specialized leader. You don't need to have particular knowledge or previous experience, you only need to be healthy and willing to do lots of new things!
WHAT DO YOU NEED?
You must be between 14 and 17 years old or over 18 and have 15/20 holyday days (it depends on the camp type)
You must bring, for your “survival”: sleeping bag, pillow-case, mattress-cover, toilet bag with toilet ties, small rack sack, flask, torch and alarm-clock.
For the work we suggest you to bring old clothes (closed and strong shoes, old jeans). You can enjoy more yourself if you take with you comfortable shoes for walking trip, a swimming cap and a swimsuit, a rain coat and, if you whish, some games, musical instruments and why not ?… your favourite recipes!
Don't bring too much money with you and, above all, do not bring articles of high value!!
LIFE IN THE CAMP
THE WORK depends on the monument or the type of restoring. (You can find this information on the other leaflet) No particular knowledge is required because the activities will be directed by the leaders and a skilled leader.
THE GROUP'S LIFE: every camp has its rhythm of life and its planned activities. The rules must be respected and, if not, the leader can send back a volunteer.
All volunteers work together and cook, do the cleaning up and plan the day's activities to get the best from their stay. Every camp has boys and girls coming from different countries. (Italians, French and English people, Belgians …)
THE ACCOMMODATION: generally is a building with beds, bathrooms (with hot water) and a kitchen.
THE TRIP: after you are enrolled, you'll receive all documents with general information about the camp and a map. You are responsible of your journey to the work site and back home. The cost of your journey isn't included in the camp's price.
Every trip during the camp will be followed by the leaders and its cost is included in the price you paid.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
The price includes room and board, insurance, trips during the camp and all booked activities.
