Le Domaine provincial de Chevetogne is a big centre for environmental education and social tourism. There is a huge park situated on 550 acres and a modest castle. Pupils from primary and secondary schools come there to participate in activities focusing on discovering the nature and rural way of life. During the summer, many kids and families make a one-day excursion to the Domaine or stay there for holidays to do sports, picnics, observe nature. Motivated and professional staff from Le Domaine de Chevetogne hopes to share their passion for the environment with international volunteers. Your support will help the center promote healthy behaviour and well-being among families and kids (UN SDG 3 Good health and well-being, UN SDG4 Quality education).

Work: Le Domaine de Chevetogne organise international workcamp for teenagers since more or less ten years. Throughout the years the volunteers built cabanes, huts, bridges, fences, benches, trails and paths for walking. Now some of these realisations need to be refreshed and some reparations. Your team will be in charge of this: so prepare yourself to discover the entire park (the realisations are in many different places), to realise different tasks : painting, sawing, hammering, … If you like nature and working with wood, screws and tools this is your workcamp!

Accomodation and food: You will live in a lovely cottage in the middle of the domain with beds, a kitchen and a bathroom with hot shower. Bring with you your sleeping bag. The meals will be on a self-catering basis, so be ready to cook all together. Bring your favourite recipes. Volunteers must notify beforehand about specific diet.
