WORKCAMPS

What is a workcamp?

Workcamps are short-term volunteer placements in an international group. The duration is 1-3 weeks. Together with volunteers from different countries, you support a social, ecological or cultural project abroad (in more than 90 countries) or in Switzerland. Through your commitment, you get to know new people and can gain first-hand experience of the culture and society of your host country. From 16/18 years.
