The International Bauorden (IBO) organizes building camps in Germany: an international group of young volunteers supports a social institution with building and renovation works. A camp lasts two to three weeks, the volunteers work under professional guidance for eight hours a day.

Bauorden offers you the opportunity to participate for eight weeks in different work camps and to see different faces of Germany.

Work And Activities

You will gain insights into social projects, you will see different regions of Germany. You will work, live and learn in varying international groups. Most of the projects take place in the country side.

What is expected of you?

• Eight hours of skilled manual work per day

• Interest in international encounters

• Commitment in non-profit, mostly rural, projects

Accommodation And Food
