Všeobecný popis Project
It became a good tradition for EstYES to organize international workcamps in co-operation with
Marjamaa Community. It lies on the half way between Tallinn and Parnu, and it is known for its rich
historical and cultural heritage: ancient settlement in Varbola, XIII century church in Marjamaa,
numerous German manor houses of XVIII-XIX centuries, etc. Local authorities see in the
international camps a powerful tool for local development - not only in terms of work done by
volunteers but mainly for introduction multicultural dimension to the population of small local
communities in the country. The camp will take place in the village of Marjamaa, the centre of the
community. The main idea of this camp is to assist running the 14 th international Marjamaa Folk
Dance Festival helping different practical tasks. More information about the Festival can be found
here https://marjamaafolk.ee/en/about-the-festival/

Work
As there will be the 14 th international Marjamaa Folk Dance Festival and The Days of the Village on
01.-04.08, volunteers are asked to help it out doing various practical jobs related to its organization
and running. This will definitely involve a lot of cleaning and manual work! But it is also expected
that volunteers contribute to the festival by introducing their national culture, music, also food to
locals as well as organizing games and fun activities for local children during the Day of the Youth
and Children in the frame of the Festival. Be ready to work for some hours on the weekend!

Accomodation:
Volunteers will have simple accommodation in the rooms of the Marjamaa Youth Centre right in the
middle of the village, sleeping on beds and mattresses. Please bring a sleeping bag. Toilets and
showers are available. Volunteers will have lunches and dinners in the local canteen and breakfast
prepared by themselves at the accommodation.

Location

Distance from Marjamaa to Tallinn is 66 km. Being an administrative centre of community with 7000
inhabitants Marjamaa has several shops, department stores, culture house, cinema, several pubs,
etc. Larger city nearby is Rapla (25km), an administrative centre of the county, with a population of
about 8000 people. Marjamaa has a very good connection to Tallinn and Parnu. More information

Airport, harbor, bus & train stations in Tallinn; bus to Marjamaa.
Special requirements
Please bring sleeping bag and pillow. It will be great if you could think about your contribution to the
festival and bring some materials, music, games as well as national food/ drinks for it. If you can
present folk songs or dances from your country or teach others it you really should not hesitate to
do it! English is the camp language.

Leisure time
You can enjoy performances of the Festival, of course. During the international Folk Festival
volunteers can join diverse activities and parties with the international participants and locals such
as Festival Club every evening. Besides there is a possibility to do sport at the school stadium,
swim in the local swimming pool; also go to excursions to the ancient settlement in Varbola,
Sillaotsa Farm Museum and other places of interest of the area.

paid by bank transfer before the beginning of the camp. If you cannot make bank transfer
please contact your sending organization for solution. Čo ďalej?
