Bar in a forest? Help us with it’s completion

5. - 7.4.2019

Misterious valley in the Moravian Karst is hiding many secrets. Unbound meandering stream, high hills, rocks, deep woods full of wildlife and about 180 caves… and in the middle of this valley you can fine a place, called Švýcárna.

The charm of this place has attracted people from the earliest times of settling in the lands. A few years ago, the Ecological leisure center Švýcárna, which focuses on international exchanges, activities focused on self-development and environmental education, was established there. One of its goals is to help people to return to nature and thus to themselves.

WHAT KIND OF WORK WILL WE DO?

Švýcárna provides a wide range of options for volunteer work. We will try to help with completion of the construction of the forest bar and a tourist shelter. Apart from that, we will also clean the outside area after the winter. After work, we are going to discover the surroundings, because we know that people from this NGO always prepare an interesting program for us. We experienced acroyoga, traditional spring celebrations, or a midnight trip through flooded caves. Surrounded by mountains, forests, stream in the beautiful valley, a memorable weekend awaits us. If you want to experience such weekend, do not hesitate and sign up.
