If you have what it takes to be a leader, if you like children and want to find out how a festival is organised, this workcamp is perfect for you! Each year, the town of Riom organises the festival “My summer in Cerey”. The main goal of this event is to offer free activities to those who cannot afford to go on holidays. The organisation is very family-friendly, in a spirit of meeting and sharing where everyone can forget about their differences. For ten days, sports, recreational and cultural activities will be offered by the town of Riom and local associations. For the sixth year in a row, an international work camp will contribute to the organization of this festival. It will be up to you to organize some of the activities that will take place every afternoon. You will be able to really enjoy this event, see shows in the evening and spend plenty of time with the local population.
You will arrive a few days before the festival in order to meet the local team and get a first impression of your new environment. During the event, you will be in charge of welcoming the public, tending a soft drinks stand and helping people with different activities such as a zip wire, trampoline and inflatable attractions. You will also run a pancake stand! Finally, you will help taking down the structures at the end of the festival. This work camp needs a great deal of commitment from the volunteers as the festival takes place during ten days. Your aim is to engage in all of these activities so that everyone can relax, have a good time together and meet new people! You will be accompanied by two camp leaders throughout your stay.
Accommodation and food
You will be accommodated in the Pierre Robin stadium, which is only a 5 minute walk away from the festival and 10 minutes away from the town Centre. You will sleep in two-person tents and group life will take place under a marquee. A kitchen, changing rooms, showers and indoor toilets are available on the stadium premises. The stadium will be entirely reserved for the workcamp and closed to the public. You will participate in the preparation of meals. You will be able to have your own barbecues and invite young people from Riom to spend time with! People from Riom will lend you bikes for getting around the town.
Location and leisure
Riom, an access point for Auvergnes volcanoes, is a close-knit community and a nice place to live in. Located only 7 minutes away by train from the regions capital, Clermont-Ferrand, Riom is a town that benefits from all the activities that are available during the summer: concerts, street shows, swimming in lakes and swimming pools, high-ropes challenge, hiking etc. Riom is a lively town that will make you love the Auvergne region!
