Description

The community of Lauchringen is going to host an international workcamp for the second time. The project will take place in cooperation with the “Familienzentrum” (family centre), an organisation that offers various programs for people of all ages to meet, exchange and educate themselves. In 2018, they built an “Adventure Land”: A big house with sleeping facilities, a kitchen, sanitary facilities, a workshop space and a big common room. This place is going to host groups during school holidays and offer an afternoon program for children and youngsters.

Work And Activities

The building itself is already finished; however, there’s still work to do in the surrounding garden area. Your main task will be the renovation of an old construction trailer: On the outside, you will add timber cladding and set up a terrace. Inside, a new floor is needed, and the walls need to be covered. Also, you will set up a ramp that allows people in wheelchairs to access the construction trailer. Once it is finished, it will be used by children to play in, and occasionally as a small “backstage area” for bands that perform in the “Adventure Land”.

Accommodation And Food

You will be accommodated in the “Adventure Land” itself: There are two big rooms with sleeping mats, a kitchen, and sanitary facilities – everything you need.

Place

Lauchringen is a small and pretty town in the very South of the Black Forest. It is just a stone’s throw away from the Swiss border and not far from places like Lake Constance and the university town of Freiburg. Lauchringen itself offers everything you need: shopping facilities, cafés, bars and much more.
