About Concordia workcamps
Concordia’s international workcamps are always organised in co-operation with either local authorities or local organisations; the projects are designed to respond to needs of the community and are always for the common good.
Groups have usually between 10 and 20 participants. Concordia wants to have 1/3 of French volunteers on adults’ camps and half of French on teenage camps.
Meetings with the local population are an important part of the projects. Also we try in each workcamp to mobilise young people from the village for an active participation to the workcamp. Sometimes they are coming only for leisure time, sometimes they participate also to the work, and sometimes they are totally part of the project. In general, it’s their first « international experience ».
The common language is English during our workcamps; if it’s a French speaking camp it is specified.
Two coordinators are present in each workcamp: one for the group life and another for technical work. They will be either French or they will come from our partners’ associations abroad (please see below the call for coordinators). Sometimes only one is present (a French coordinator for small groups). Concordia’s French coordinators participate in a training week organised by Concordia and the international coordinators follow training in their partners’ countries (if they don’t have any experience of coordination). All coordinators manage the budget for food, leisure, excursions, etc. with the group.
With Concordia, work time is about 6 hours a day, but in fact it is more important to attain the work’s objective, defined between the local partner and Concordia.
Leisure time is not planned before: it will be organised by the group with the local population and it will be based on the discovery of the region. Most of the time, camps are in small isolated villages and there is not necessarily a car available on the camp: volunteers should be ready to accept that.
General accommodation is basic: a common room for sleeping and eating. Volunteers cook for themselves; sometimes they are sleeping on the floor and sometimes in tents (see the description of each workcamp).
Volunteers should bring a sleeping bag, a sleeping mat, work clothes, warm clothes, sport shoes, gloves…Please notice that it’s easier to have a backpack, especially in the mountains!
We welcome some volunteers with special needs in our workcamps. If your volunteers have special needs, please contact us. We will do our best to find a way to host them.
