Accommodation: Sleeping facilities:BErnehuset Buen offers fine accommodation with beds for everyone in group rooms of up to 6 people. And participants do not have to bring sheets, linen, pillows or sleeping bags. There are very nice living rooms, where the group can hang out and relax. And there is also a working room with a large table and chairs for everyone. Kitchen bathroom facilities: There is a nice kitchen with everything you need to make meals to large groups. There are many toilets around the house, but there is only one bathroom, so the camp participants must work out a shower-plan. HillerEd Volunteer Center and the library also have showers, so there should be no problem. We will be back with more detailed information about purchase of groceries.
