The south-east Brandenburg branch of the aeuroSozalpdagogisches Institutaeurooe (Social Pedagogy Institute) foundation maintains the aeurooeBergschlsschenaeuro, a centre for people from several generations in the town of Spremberg, as well as other lodging property in the Felixsee community (around 15km from Spremberg), in an idyllic rural setting directly next to the pristine Felixsee lake. For this year, the plan is for you and your team to support the Felixsee community with the maintenance and preservation of their local parks. We would also like you to help out with the deconstruction work in the property. You can still be creative and artistic outside, however, by creating unique household objects, for example. Besides this, there will be opportunities in Spremberg to get to know about and to assist with intercultural work with families and individuals with migrant backgrounds or who have fled from other countries. During the workcamp you have the opportunity to get to know the local landscape and community, as well as to take part in local events. Our international workcamp is taking place for the 16th time this year. More information at www.spremberg.stiftung-spi.de
Youaeuroll be living in wooden bungalows. Meals will be prepared and cooked together in groups.
You can go swimming in the lake, play beach volleyball, beach football, table tennis as well as outdoor bowling. There is a barbecue area you can use, and an internet connection is available. In the local area there is a horse farm and well-established cycle routes. There you can also go skating (please bring your own inline-skates for this). Bikes will be available for you during the camp. In the town of Spremberg itself there are numerous free time opportunities, such as an outdoor swimming pool, a cinema, a bowling alley, a nightclub and a skate park. The unique Spreewald in the region is ideal for boat and canoe trips.
Participants under 18 years old must bring swimming permission from their parents (due to the unsupervised natural lake).
After Worldwar II pupils from Hanover organised the first workcamps aiming to promote reconstruction, to reduce negative stereotypes through international encounters and to envisage new democratic forms of living together. In addition to workcamps, other activities have become part of the work over time. These are organised by six offices of ijgd and additional project offices. Young people can take part in mid-term and long-term voluntary services in Germany and abroad. The fields of activity include social and ecological service as well as heritage protection.
The work of ijgd is funded by state and federal subsidies as well as from other public institutions.
Encouraging intercultural understanding has remained one of the main focuses. Ijgd enables people to actively create community life while giving them the opportunity to broaden their horizons.
Ijgd invites all interested people to join projects working for the communal good!
Self-Organization is spelt with a capital S at ijgd! It purposely foregoes a camp day that is organized by its participants in lieu of a completely pre-organized one. A readiness for active participation in the group is expected from all participants. The group organizes everything about the camp, this includes grocery shopping, cooking, deciding what to do with free time, as well as all other activities of the camp.
