Types of Help We Need

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

Cost and Volunteering Hours Expected

The First Campers (June 2017 – February 2018)

For our builders, our volunteer experience is free. Our first campers need to be skilled and experienced volunteers who can commit to stay at camp for a minimum of three months. Therefore, in exchange for your work we will provide housing, food and teachings.

The Spring Campers (March 2018 onward)

Our volunteer experience is very inexpensive. In exchange for 5 hours of work per day, we will provide housing and teachings. We ask the volunteer to contribute for their food, as for the moment, the camp is not producing enough food to feed all the volunteers. A contribution of 10€ per day will be asked. If your funds are limited, let us know, we want our camps to be as inclusive as possible.
