Work

This summer's workcamp will be in full swing to prepare the scenography (decor, preparation of spaces) for the Melting Pot festival organized by the Vaunières volunteer team. This project is suitable for young and old alike, and will involve creativity and a little technical work. The aim of the game is to allow everyone to bring a little bit of themselves in order to welcome the public in the universe of the Melting Pot theme (not yet defined but as an indication there were Pirates, Witches). You will be accompanied by our team of technical supervisors and volunteers to express your creative ideas in a process of recovery and use of materials and materials with low environmental impact.

Accomodation and food

Accommodation will be in individual tents, which will be provided, as well as mattresses, on the camping areas of the Vaunières hamlet, with access to showers, toilets, and cooking facilities. There is no WIFI. But you will meet people from all over the world! Lunch will be taken with all the people on the site, so you will only have to have breakfast and dinner with the families on the site. You will take it in turns to cook, so that we can taste several specialities! Here, we pay attention to what we eat, to reduce our impact on the planet, we try to eat a maximum of local products and we eat meat twice a week. The collective life is organized together: organization of menus (vegetarian, vegan and other specific diets possible), shopping, activities, etc. Bring a mattress, a good duvet (the nights can be chilly) and a pillow (to be adapted to your needs).

Location and leisure

Le Hameau de Vaunières, 6km from the village St Julien en Beauchêne, is 23km away from the main city, Veynes. Grocery shopping, which will be conducted once or twice a week, will be organized using our vehicles.
We will be in an exceptional location to discover the joys of hiking among the mountains, its rivers, its lakes, the farmers markets, and festive events organized in the surrounding villages (depending on programming). As a group, we’ll decide the activities and outings that we want to set up (subject to distance). Once a week, the welcome center generally organizes an evening of music with homemade wood fired pizzas.

Project hosted by

Participating in the development of a workshop for young and old, professionals and neophytes, sounds interesting, isn't it? Join us and come discover the Hameau de Vaunières and its natural setting at 1173 meters above sea level ! Vaunières, a hamlet unlike any other ! Lost at the end of the Buëch valley, at the heart of the Hautes Alpes, the association Les Villages des Jeunes has managed, organized, and renovated the residential center of Vaunières since 1964 !
Vaunières was a former small mountain village that today has become a sort of launching pad for local youth and adults, but it’s also a venue used to host French and international volunteers. Vaunières is a vacation destination for many families, tourists, and constituent groups who come to take advantage of the calm mountain atmosphere and the dynamics of the environment. The workcamps that we organize at Vaunières with volunteers from all countries allow us to reinforce the cultural diversity of our engagement and make this site a place that is open to the world, where people of all ages and of all social and cultural backgrounds agree to meet each other and work to get her while participating in life within a community. The activities at the Faïfarm are in line with several objectives of sustainable development by a responsible consumption and production, by a functioning which wants to be equal for each person present, by an attention brought to a participative education of quality and this since its origin and also the wish to take part in the well being and the good health of the people. We hope that you too, a volunteer from France or abroad, will come with this spirit of openness and collaboration that fuels our project !
