We invite mid-term volunteers to give their support to the multiple tasks which will help the school to organize its numerous summer camps and meet kids from different ages and multiple backgrounds.
The aim of this volunteering project is to integrate the animation team of Clerheid. Which means helping us to prepare and facilitate our activities during the school trips and the summer camps we host. We propose several kind of stay (circus, philosophy & nature, strolling camp, …) with kids from 4 to 13.
Volunteers will be asked to animate games, take part in vigils and help us create a welcoming and peaceful atmosphere. Musicians, singers, acrobats, ventriloquist or any other kind of artist are warmly welcome.
We also wish the volunteers to share with us the daily life of the school and tasks such as:
• Taking care of our animals (2 horses, 2 donkeys, 2 goats, some sheeps and some chicken)
• Helping with the gardening and farming work
• Helping with renovation work of our wooden buildings
In June, we will host an international workcamp of 2 weeks which will support us in the preparation of the summer camps. Mid-term volunteers will therefore be working with this group building fences, haymaking, build, repair or renovate wooden constructions, …
There will also be the opportunity of working in the Wooden Village which hosts hundreds of kids every year. This enchanting place is the result of the imagination of generations of kids and leader. Over 2 hectare of forest, you can now find there more than 20 cabins, a bridge, an amphitheatre all wooden and hand made.
Tasks are fairly diverse in order to make sure everyone can find a place to fit in.
Volunteers will live in a small cottage, with a kitchen, a bathroom and two bedrooms (2 x 4 beds), as well as in a dormitory with a bathroom.
This space will be shared with the volunteers of the international workcamp and might be shared with some visitors such as camp leaders.
Please bring your sleeping bag.
Volunteers will either take their meals with groups during the camps or cook by themselves in the kitchen at their disposal in the cottage.
This project is designed for nature lovers who are willing to interact with children as there will be camps and activities with kids organised during the workcamp.
Applicants should know that Cleirheid School is located in a very remote area which is not served by public transport.
There will be very limited access to Internet and a phone in the office of the organisation.
In order to preserve conviviality and harmony within the groups, we wish the project to be alcohol-free, as are all of our activities.
