Name: CHEMILLE-MELAY – Restoration of a wall in the cloister’s park


Dates: 23/07 - 03/08/18

Type: RENO

Age: 15-17

This workcamp is the result of the cooperation between the town hall of Chemille-Melay, the social centre of Chemillois and Concordia.
Now, the cloister’s park is a place where people come to wander. For three years, we have been organizing workcamps there to make the park more enjoyable for the inhabitants: renovation of a pond’s bank, of a surrounding wall…

This year, we would like to work on two different things: first, we will continue the renovation of the Cloister’s park surrounding wall and, secondly, we will start the renovation of a bridge inside the park (masonry and carpentry work).

Accommodation and food:  
You will be accommodated under tents with boys and girls separated. Lavatories will be available in the locker room. Collective life and cooking will take place at the leisure camp “les Cloitres”. Cleaning and cooking tasks will be done together. Bring a sleeping bag and a mat.

You will experience a sustainable lifestyle within the camp (local organic food, composting, energy saving).

Location and leisure:
Chemille-Melay is a small city (8755 inhabitants) of the Maine-et- Loire County located between the cities of Cholet and Angers. It’s the head city of the Chemille district and offers a lot of services to the population: swimming pool, parks, playgrounds, cinema… You will have the opportunity to discover the region and participate in media creations “video, pictures, radio…” with the support of the Regional Numerical space of the Chemillois. Bathing, hiking, concerts and all the ideas you could propose will also be considered.
