We, INEX Slovakia, are NGO based in Slovakia established in 1993. Among our many other activities (volunteering, non-formal educatuin, propagation) we are organizing summer international volunteer camps, a.k.a. workcamps around Slovakia. An international volunteer camp is a unique opportunity to discover a new country, culture and people from a different perspective. During workcamp the volunteers help with community service projects for 1 - 2 weeks. These can be repairing historic buildings, working with seniors or people with disabilities, renovating historical monuments, nature conservation and many other types of work. The volunteers will meet people from all over the world. 
The history of organizing international projects dates back to 1920, when the first volunteering camp in the French village of Esnes en Argonne was completed. The village was previously destroyed during the First World War.


As a camp leader in Slovakia you will have an opportunity to:

  • organize the workcamp according to your ideas
  • meet people from around the world
  • improve your practical skills and soft skills: communication, time management, budget management, conflict resolution, intercultural skills, public speaking, evaluation, theory of games, group dynamic, motivation, team management
  • gain more experience in the management and leadership
  • improve your English
  • gain new friends
  • help where your help is needed

  • communication with coordinator and mentor from INEX Slovakia office

What to do if something happens?

On all our workcamps the participants are all of legal age (18+). The group should pay attention to each other, but you can not be held liable for any accidents/damages by the participants.

In case there will be any emergency situation or conflict/situation you will be not able to deal with, you should contact your coordinator/mentor from INEX Slovakia office and we will support and help you. We have emergency phone for these cases, your coordinator/mentor is there for you 24/7.
