Volunteer Camp Experience in Altiplano, Spain

Do you want to make a difference and have fun at the same time? Join us at one of our Camps.  You’ll be joining a movement of people who are committed to restoring the planet from a barren land to a lush paradise teeming with insects, birds, mammals, fish, and food. Camp activities will include restoration work such as tree planting, composting, seed collecting, earthworks, cooking, listening to music, campfires, making new friends, and much more.

Types of Help We Need

The camps offer a diverse set of learning opportunities and cultural exchange with the local community.

Campers (April 2018 – October 2018)

  • Water & Energy (Setting up potable/grey water systems and solar energy
  • Building & Construction
  • Digital Content Creation (Film, Photography and Social Media)

 

October 2018 Onwards (General Campers)

This period marks the beginning of the camp as a space for learning and sharing skills. Therefore we welcome anyone who would like to learn about ecosystem restoration and planet positive living even if this is your first time. However, we are always on the look-out for people with the skills detailed below:

  • Ecosystem Restoration
  • Gardening & Farming
  • Building & Construction
  • Water & Energy maintenance
  • General Maintenance
  • Cooking/shopping
  • Animal Care
  • Digital Content Creation (Film, Photography and Social Media)

Although we would love to hear from you if you would like to join us from October 2018 onwards, our plans for having the camp ready are dependent on funds and the availability of human and material resources. Therefore we ask you to bear this in mind in your application and if possible, apply nearer the time of your planned arrival and your place will not be guaranteed. We appreciate your patience and we are building the camp as quickly as possible!

 

Cost and Volunteering Hours Expected

Campers (April – September 2018)

As campers who are part of the initial set up process of the camp, your work is invaluable and therefore we will not ask you for a financial contribution towards living costs.

Accommodation

We are in the process of building the camp, and whilst the build is taking place, you will be living in a 400 year old farmhouse with the other campers. There are two bedrooms, one for men and one for women, with a maximum of 4 people per room. The meals will be predominantly vegetarian and communal cooking and eating is the norm. The house is equipped with cooking and washing facilities, a log fire and a wifi connection.

We plan to have the initial camp structures completed by Spring 2018 so there may be an option to sleep at the camp occasionally. This means you will be sleeping in a yurt with up to three other people.

Insurance

We ask that volunteers have appropriate personal liability, travel and medical insurance. Please get in contact with us if you need more information.

Please note: Campers must pay for their own flights and transportation to the campsite.
