The goal of the group “fRilingue” is to offer teenagers (age: 10 – 18 years) a two week language camp. The aim of “fRilingue” – English Camp is to combine language courses (English) in the morning with free time activities such as sport, music, dance, theatre and cinema in the afternoons. The special advantage of this project is the mixture of adolescents from the French and the German part of Switzerland. There will be some special programmes in the nights and on the weekends. In the afternoon and on the weekend the group will discover the region. The youngsters will learn outside or in tents if the weather is bad.
The main work of the volunteers will be the preparation of the daily meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner). Together with a cook they organise the menu schedule, do the shopping and wash the dishes afterwards. Volunteers will also do housekeeping and cleaning rooms, showers and toi-lets. It would be helpful if volunteers know how to prepare a meal for a bigger group.
The volunteers will sleep in tents or in dormitories. It is simple, but there is a kitchen, toilets and showers.
Schwarzsee and Plasselb are blessed with nature’s bounty. The villages are framed by impressive mountains and an idyllic mountain lake is nearby. The River Sense Country is on the so-called Röstigraben. The rolling countryside appeals due to its magnificent landscapes and varied cultural assets – it is definitely worthwhile to stay a bit longer! Discovering the charming region of Schwarzsee with its fascinating wildlife and nature – ideal for nature lovers, families and sports lovers! Twice a week, volunteers will accompany the adolescents on an afternoon journey to the close by region. On the weekends longer excursions are planned. The evenings will involve social events where the volunteers can participate and enjoy.
Volunteers should have interest in leading a group of young people. We are looking for mature persons. The group fRilingue is looking for people who like sport and creative activities and who like to support youngsters in their own talents. The international Workcamps consist of small groups of three Volunteers, additionally they will work together with Swiss Volunteers from fRilingue. If you are interested to be a part of this workcamp please send a short motivation letter. Age: 20+!
Workcamp Switzerland was founded as an association in 2004. It is politically and confessional neutral. Workcamp is now (since November 2012) a full member of the international network “Alliance of European Voluntary Services Organisation”.
Since 2011 year Workcamp Switzerland wants to integrate people with any kind of social, physical or mental deficits. We experienced in our Workcamps that it’s a benefit for all participants to mix people with different backgrounds in a practical, non formal environment. For young adults with any kind of handicap the beneficial work can be a chance to get into a working process and to strengthen the self confidence. That’s why we open our projects for Volunteers with fewer opportunities and support the initiative “Access 4 All”.
