UP IN THE MOUNTAIN AND DOWN TO EARTH | SJ/TEEN70 | 2018-07-17 - 2018-08-04 | ENVI | Age: 15 - 17

 

The workcamp will take place in a unique place up in the National Reserved Area of Cevennes mountain (south of France), in partnership with two local associations. One of them works in rehabilitating a middle-aged inn, making it an inn once again, welcoming each and everyone according to their means and needs. While the other is a citizens collective who try to manage the natural resources of the area in a collective and environment friendly-way.

Work: You will be engaged with the local citizens collective, which manages a local chestnut grove. The specific nature of the work is not determined yet, as the spring weather will determine the needs for this summer but, what is decided is that you will work helping preserve the natural resources of the area and enhance the local environment.

Accomodation and food: The workcamp will take place in a very remote area, where you will be hosted in a camping place. Kitchen, shower and toilet will also be equipped in a camping mode. You will have access to sanitary facilities (toilet and shower) in a nearby building. Moreover, if the weather is too difficult to camp, there is a building nearby to find shelter. As it has been said before, this remote area is located in a very beautiful landscape, and will offer each participant a quite unique panorama every morning!

Location: Ventalon

Location and Leisure: You will be hosted in the rural area of Ventalon in Cévennes. Leisure Activities: As the workcamp will take place in a remote area, most of the leisure activity will consist of discovering the natural wonders of the area, taking hikes in the mountains, share daily life with the local inhabitants, and in general take advantage of the beautiful surroundings. Transportation can be available to continue discovering the area and organising more leisure activities.
