Concordia has been working for several years with the very dynamic Youth Center! After workcamps in the town of Le Mesge and Cavillon, this year, the young people of the international workcamp will work in the town of l Etoile. This is a first workcamp project with this town, in partnership with the community of communes NIEVRE ET SOMME, with which we are implementing our 11th workcamp.

Work: *** VERSION EN FRANCAIS DISPONIBLE EN FIN DE DESCRIPTION *** *** French version at the end of the description *** This village of more than 1000 inhabitants is very much liked by hikers thanks to the several hiking trails that cross it. You will participate in the renovation of a staircase located in the heart of the village which leads to the old church. The staircase is one of the starting points of a walk to discover the village and the Caesar camp. The program includes: renovating the steps of the staircase and repainting the handrail.

Accomodation and food: You will sleep in individual tents and there will be a large tent for collective life and you will cook inside the club house. The infrastructures of the municipal stadium will offer you access to the showers, boys and girls separated. You will share the different collective tasks and prepare meals together, with local products as much as possible. A local market takes place in the village once a week.

Location: L’ETOILE

Location and Leisure: Located between Amiens and Abbeville and on the shore of the Somme river, lEtoile is a small and dynamic village of about 1000 inhabitants.
