IMMERSION AT THE ROCHARD LODGE | SJ62 | 2020-08-15 - 2020-09-01 | RENO | Age: 18 - 90


Rochard is a former farm that has been transformed into a rustic lodge by an association that welcomes groups of children, hikers, and campers into their yurts. The lodge is located in Béceleuf, a small village close to Marais Poitein, 70km from the Atlantic ocean, between Nantes and Bordeaux. The venue, surrounded by nature, encourages respect for the environment and a sustainable developmental approach. Thus, differents projects were excecuted by the association Camping-Club des Deux-Sèvres through previous international workcamps, which include the construction of a pool with a phyto-purification system, and dry toilets suitable for communities. This association is a loyal partner of the assocation Maison des Bateleurs-Solidarités Jeunesses, and in 2019 celebrated its 12th international workcamp! With this project, you will be actively working for the Sustainable Development Goal n°11 from the United Nations: Sustainable Cities and Communities.

Work: This year, the objective of the workcamp will be to continue the restoration of the lodge and most notably to produce new amenities (restoration room, stairs, loft, etc.) Techniques related to traditional masonry, painting, and woodwork will be shared with you. These activities will be accomplished under the guidance of the associations experienced technical supervisors that have volunteered.
