For eight summers now, international volunteers have been coming to Davayat village and
learnt how to build with stones and lime mortar, discovered the region and shared meals with
the local community.
Concordia has been participating in the renovation of Davayat's former lime kilns since 2011,
working alongside a local organization called Cynorhodon 135, created by friendly
volunteers. You will see how much the work has already progressed. This camp will be the
last one on this site; your work will be diversified as you will participate to the final
arrangements before the public opening! The local partner’s volunteers are looking forwards
to showing you their region. You will also have the opportunity to share friendly moments and
good meals with the inhabitants.
You will create a visit itinerary for the lime kilns that have been renovated, build a wooden
staircase and different stone walls that will be used to delimit the site. The work will be
diversified and there will be lots of different things to do! Supervised by a technical camp
leader, you will learn landscaping techniques and traditional masonry techniques using local
stones and lime mortars
You’ll sleep in 2 persons tents (please bring your sleeping bag) in the village near the leisure
center. You will have access to toilets, shower facilities, a kitchen and two activity rooms
inside the center. You will have the chance to eat outside whenever the weather allows it.
The group will be sharing the cleaning chores and cook together. The budget will be
allocated to the group leader and you will participate in the preparation of dishes with good
products from the market and local producers when possible. On the first evening, the locals
will welcome you with a feast made of their culinary specialties!
Bring working clothes, walking boots and a backpack. Nights can be chilly, so bring warm
clothes and a good sleeping bag. You can also bring recipes from your home country,
musical instruments and games. You will get around Davayat on foot and by car.
Foreigners belonging to the European Union must bring with them a personal EHIC
(European Health Insurance Card), and everybody must, in any case, bring their insurance
certificate. If health issues happen on the project, volunteers will have to pay for it, and then
be reimbursed once back in their home country.
