BRUSOV - maintenance of the children camp
Description: The camp is organized jointly by NGOs Duha and Expedice Natura. Duha is a non-governmental children and youth association for leisure-time, nature and fun aiming at non-formal education for democracy, ecological behaviour in nature and personal development. Expedice Natura is an organisation running a camp for hikers situated in the natural protected area in North Bohemia in Brusov. The workcamp takes place at the camp where summer camps for children are organised. The camp is surrounded with forest. Because there are only few people who take care of the place where are the camps for children it is needed to help them with the maintenance of the camp. Workcamp is for those who would like to work in the nature, mostly manual, and who would like to spent time in the forest.
Type of Work: Helping with cleaning a natural reserve nearby, especially the forest and brook. We will also help with the maintenance of the camp (no hard job, do not fear as painting the huts etc.). We will also help in Ustek city with manual work. The reason for working in the city Ustek is that they help to organise few trips to surrounding by bus for volunteers and they also provide some material for maintenance of the camp. We will work 5-6 hours per day. Work should be variable so that each of can enjoy it and each of us will see the results of our effort.
Accommodation: In little huts, two people in each. Showers and bathroom are in a separate building. All equipment is common, simple and natural. Do not expect anything luxury. Daily three meals will be provided by Expedice Natura. Unfortunately, we cannot provide vegetarian food.
Requirements: Take your sleeping bag, working clothes and shoes (will be dirty by work), typical things of your country and music instrument with you. Take also some spray against insects.
Approximate Location: Workcamp is situated in a little village Brusov (there is only a few houses here). Brusov is 4 km far away from a mediaeval town Ustek (http://www.mesto-ustek.cz/en/). There is railway station, shops, and nice strand for swimming in Ustek. There is no public transport so if you can go there you need to walk.
Notes: We can do various trips (visits of Litomerice city with its historical centre, concentration camp Terezin, Ploskovice castle, many walks in amazing nature etc.), getting to know each other’s cultures, playing various ball games, swimming, making bonfires at nights as you wish. It is very important part of the camp the volunteers get know the workcamp place and surrounding.
