WHAT IS  A WORKCAMP

Workcamp is a short-term international voluntary project that lasts circa 2 weeks. There are hundreds of workcamps per year all over the world, mainly during summer holiday (June – September).

A group of mostly 6-12 volunteers from different countries takes part in public benefit activities in different fields (from nature protection, through renovation of historical monuments, festival organization, to work with disabled people)

  • work, mainly manual, is done cca 6 hours/day
  • there is plenty of time then for free time activities and getting to know foreign country
  • you do not pay anything, except for participation fee 1500/1800 CZK and travel costs from/to place, the accomodation and food is provided on workcamp, sometimes there is also a contribution for free time activities
  • workcamp is a unique opportunity to travel differently, gain new precious experience and do something for others at the same time!
