  • Descripción


    We are an ngo that works with youth information, mobility and social entrepreneurship. In the field of mobility we have different programmes for young people, international volunteers programmes, youth exchanges and trainings, as well as international youth camps. For implementing the international summer camps we need help to build the camp and later help to do different art and sport activities with youth. Our camp is situated in the small place in our region, just 2 minutes walking from the sea. It is an space that offers tranquility and beautiful nature. Everything in the camp is done by the association members and volunteers, and accommodation is provided in the tents. We are cooking daily, so we offer to all our volunteers food, drinks, snacks as much as they want. Our main intention for the future is to upgrade the camp with innovative ideas, ecological approach and sustainability so we would like to invite open minded volunteers to help us in that path. Important to know that we host volunteers from June till August. As we work with young people and the space we share is with young people we accept volunteers the same age, which means the volunteers aged 18 - 42. We ask from volunteers to be able to work in the team but also alone, to have some experience already with organizing activities for young people, to be able to live and volunteer in the nature, to be open minded, friendly and motivated to do activies with us. For sure the plus is if the volunteer has some building / gardening skills too. We are a small ngo, and therefore we are like a family. We will give everything we can to feel you welcome and part of our family.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    Travellers will learn a lot about the teamwork, working with young people and children coming from different nationalities and backgrounds, time menagement, construction and nature. Our camp is next to the sea so during the free time travellers will have a chance to go to the beach, to simple enjoy in the peace, go hiking, kayaking, walking...

    Travellers can learn a lot of our croatian culture, how an ngo works, how to manage projects for young people, but also how to live in a small place and simple enjoy in every day.

    They will have the chance to explore the surroundings and visit cultural places with us.

    The activities we need the help with in the summer camp during the summer are:
    - maintaining the camp area (cutting the grass, cleaning, putting the tents, doing different constructions for the facilities of the camp: wooden houses/storage/kitchen place, painting, making fence...)
    - activities with children and young people (animation, doing different workshops, designing and making furniture out of pallets, sport activites, water activities and games, organizing evening activities...)
    - cooking (preparing the meals together with the groups in the camp)
    - trail and walking tours (accompanying groups to the field trips..).

    All creative ideas are more than welcome. :)

    In June we need help ONLY with cleaning the camp area (cutting the grass, making more places for the tents) maintaining the field (preparing the field for the camp), putting up the tents (we need to put around 50 tents, and before that to make the construction out of pallets for them), to transport the things and materials to the camp. In this month we don't need any help with animation of the groups / workshops / art activities. We don't host any groups then, it's just preparing the field for upcoming camps. It's all manual work.

    In July, each week we host the scout groups who are coming to join our camp and help us to do the outdoor wooden constructions and small houses. Apart from that we have different workshops / games / outdoor activities with them, so we need people who will stay with us and help us with designing and making the outdoor furniture, different pallet constructions. Apart from that the ones that will help in preparing the meals for all of us (take in consideration that each day we are between 50 and 60 people so we need to prepare cooked lunch and dinner), help in doing the shopping for the groceries, cleaning the camp, doing the workshops, games, outdoor activities. So we need people with experience in furniture making / cooking / animation of the young people / workshops and outdoor activities for young people.This is our most stressful period of the summer and we really need easy going, tolerant, skilled workawayers to help us to make the best of it. Additionally: guitar playing for bonfires, yoga / pilates for morning activities are welcomed as well or any other skills that you would like to share.

    In August, we do youth exchanges for young people and other mobilties projects, so we need help with animation, preparation of activities, cooking, cleaning and after finishing the camp closing up the camp, removing the tents and equippment, bringing everything to the storage. In August we host only till 20.08., not later as we are closing up the camp.

    Apart from that additionally tasks can be making photo/video materials of our camp and activities, content promotion.

    Please before applying, think good if this project is for you, how you can help and if we can rely on you in the chosen period. As it's living and volunteering in nature, with lots of people and it does have a lot of responsibilities and tasks to do, please carefully decide if this is what you are searching for. We do relay on each of the parts of our team and it's important that the tasks are taken seriously. Please notice that in our camp we we tend to respect nature and to live with nature. We work with young people aged 15-30, not with children.

    The work is 5 hours per day (if you want to help more you are very welcome of course) for 5 days, and 2 days free. You will volunteer in an international setting, with a team of people aged 19 - 42 who lead the camp, and we are actually a family. We plan all together, communicate everything, support each other and enjoy what we do. English is the language of our camp. Our scout groups beside english speak french so if you also speak french, it's an additional value for us. As a workawayer, you will have 3 meals per day (and more if you want/need/...), water/juices/coffee/tea on disposal as much as you want, free accommodation, transport to and from the camp from the nearest town, internet, free rental of kayaks.... Each of our volunteer has a single tent, with matress and pillow + lining and blanket.

    We tend to have volunteers here who can stay more, one or two months. We don't accept volunteers for less then 3 weeks.
