Work & Fun in the South
Description: This project gives SEEDS volunteers again the opportunity to live and work in beautifulsurroundings in Úlfljótsvatn in cooperation with our host, the Icelandic Girls and Boys Scouts Association. The project offers diverse tasks and various experiences for SEEDS volunteers.
Type of Work: Volunteers will beautify the surroundings by cleaning up the area, carry out some planting and gardening activities as well. Depending on the advance of the project, volunteers might do other possible tasks, like checking up and repairing old fences and light maintenance work in the huts. The work can be physically demanding and volunteers need to be motivated to work outdoors and to be flexible to do the diverse tasks connected with the project.
Accommodation: Volunteers will be lodged in a local hut, in a sleeping bag accommodation sharing rooms. Please bring your own sleeping bag. The area has a well equipped kitchen. Volunteers will receive food supplies and be in charge of cooking and cleaning. Please do not forget some traditional/typical food from your home country for the international evening.
Language: English will be the language in the camp; basic conversational skills are needed.
Requirements: Participation fee EUR 250 (Euros). This fee is paid to SEEDS on arrival in Euros or Icelandic krónas and it includes the transportation from Reykjavík to Úlfljótsvatn and back (on the first and last day of the camp) and the Golden Circle excursion.The work can be physically demanding and volunteers need to be motivated to work outdoors in all kinds of weather.
Approximate Location: The Úlfljótsvatn Scout Center is about 50 km to the east from the capital, Reykjavík. The land is originally a farmland and a property of the city of Reykjavik. The scouts in Iceland have rented a piece of the land for over 60 years. Úlfljótsvatn has been for decades the centre for outdoor activities, leader training and summer camp for scouts and guides in Iceland.
Notes: The camp is located in a place of beautiful surroundings with countless walking and hiking opportunities. Volunteers can also use the kayaks in the lake. Other excursions (eg. South Shore, Snæfellsnes or Blue Lagoon or) can be organised at discount fares for SEEDS volunteers. The work can be physically demanding and volunteers need to be motivated to work outdoors in all kinds of weather. Volunteers should be prepared for cold or rainy weather since the work takes place outdoors. Volunteers have to bring good shoes and clothes, including hats and gloves.
