Project code: ijgd 03236
Project name: Spring cleaning close to Baltic Sea
Duration: 15.04.2023 to 26.04.2023
Description of the partner organizing/hosting the project: Children’s and youth campsite of the city of Braunschweig. The campsite at Lenster Strand in Grömitz on the Baltic Sea is mainly used for recreation by
children and young people from Brunswick, but can also be used by other groups and families. It is primarily aimed at children and young people from lower-income families and thus makes an important contribution to their recreation and relief.
Description of work: Would you like to help children and young people have an unforgettable summer and get to know the Baltic Sea beach at the same time? Then help out with our spring cleaning at Brunswick’s children and youth camping site on the Lenster beach in Groemitz. Together with other young people from all over the world you support the staff of the campsite during various seasonal preparatory repairs on the entire site. Together you will set up and repair playgrounds and sports fields as well as barbecue and campfire sites, do painting and cleaning work, perform various maintenance work (gardening and earthworks), repair bicycles and set up tents. (Note: The actual work to be carried out may differ from that described here).
Description of accommodation and food: You will be living in basic 4-bed rooms in the main building of the campsite, which is located just a few metres away from the sandy beach. For more information about the campsite (unfortunately only available in German), go to www.zeltplatz-lenste.de. You will be sleeping in 4-bed rooms in the main building of a child and youth camping site. On working days you will be fully catered for (vegan is not possible). On the days off you will cater for yourself. Money for shopping on these days will be provided. Please state any intolerances during registration.
Description of location and leisure: The children and youth campsite is just a few metres away from the beautiful Baltic Sea beach. In April it will probably still be too cold to go swimming, but there will be bicycles available for you to use, so you can go on bike rides on the embankments along the Baltic coast! There is a wide range of free-time activities available for you on the huge outdoor area of the campsite: several football pitches, a beach volleyball court, a beach football court, a beach handball court, a basketball court, a huge bouncy castle, a zip-line, several table tennis tables and giant chess. You can spend your evenings around the campfire. On the free weekend, it’s also worth taking a trip to Hamburg (100km away) and/or Lübeck (50km away).
Remarks (other information): You should be fit enough for physically demanding work and you should be able to ride a bike.
