Type of Work: During this camp we will continue the work of the spring-camp, which runs in April. We still need to prepare our centre for the next workcamp season. It needs cleaning works like raking dead leaves, cleaning the yard or piling up the leaves. Other small tasks during the camp may include maintaining or renovation works inside and outside.
Accommodation: Accommodation: You will live at the centre in bungalows. You wont bring a sleeping bag with you, bed linen will be provided. There is no washing machine and only limited internet access in the centre.Food: You will have the chance to prepare your own meals in a small kitchen at the centre. Please bring your own recipes for our international evenings.
Approximate Location: Area: You will live in our Projekt- und BegegnungsstEtte. This is the meeting and project centre of the Vereinigung Junger Freiwilliger e.V./ VJF (Union of Young Volunteers). It is situated in a forest on the banks of the lake Langer See in Berlin. Its a quiet place, a bit far from the centre of Berlin (but there are good public transport connections). The centre is used as accommodation for different groups of young people and a sort of holiday resort for school classes.www.gruppenhaus.de/projekt-u.-begegnungsstaette-der-vjf-e.v.-berlin-hs1250.htmlLeisure Time: This will be decided in accordance with the groups wishes.
