As a camp coordinator in a Workcamp, you will look after and be responsible for a group of international volunteers in Switzerland. You will be part of the group and work on the project. Also you will have additional tasks, such as informing the SCI team about the progress of the workcamp and mediating between the project partner and the volunteer group.
At a two-day preparatory seminar, camp coordinators learn how to work in an intercultural team, resolve conflicts non-violently, and react appropriately in delicate situations.
You can find a list of current placements as a camp coordinator here. Contact Maurus (firstname.lastname@example.org) for an assignment in a Swiss workcamp.
For camp coordinators, participation in the workcamp (including meals and lodging) is free of charge.
If you are employed and under 30 years of age, you can take one week of youth leave as a camp coordinator.
