International Table Tennis Camp 2
Description: B75 is a value-based table tennis club with professional trainers and players. Our trainers work as volunteers. The Work Camp will be a part of our annual International Summer Camp. 200 trainers and players from all over the world will gather for three weeks of learning, fun, making new friends and much more. Last year the participants came from 43 countries. The International Summer Camp has existed for 17 years. This is the third year we are hosting a Work Camp. The first two years have been a success and we are looking forward to this year. This year we will have two Work Camp groups at the same time, so the groups can alternate in working hours, and find time to do social activities together. For me, it has been a great experience that will help me developing in my way of thinking and seeing the world with other eyes because being with people from other countries that are so different as mine has been one of the best experiences in my life. - Fer Sanchez Mexico, a former participant Read more at www.B75.dk
Type of Work: As a volunteer, you will be working 5 days a week, with 2 days off. The Work Camp volunteers work together with local volunteers typical 7 hours or less to help with different tasks during the Summer Camp and help out the camp participants. Work starts in the morning, in the afternoon and some tasks, like being a part of the video crew, means you must work at different times during the day. There will be a rotation between the tasks to make the days vary for the volunteers. The different tasks can include assisting in the kitchen, where you will help prepare both vegetarian and meat dishes and serve the food to the other camp participants. Similar tasks can include helping with cleaning assistance or drive shuttle buses to and from the airport, train station, ferry terminals and practice halls. Other tasks can include overseeing activities with the camp participants and the smallest children, helping in the administration with check inn, check out and room preparations and make video-reports for international live streaming, write articles and take photos for the social media. It will also be possible to be a sparring partner in the Table Tennis Camp and interact with the camp participants. The camp is good for you, if you like to be in an international environment and can adapt to changes.
