About the volunteer workVery near to the border with the Netherlands, in the heart of the rural surroundings, lies the outdoor forest pool of Walbeck. Next to the large outdoor pool, the grounds offer to visitors the chance to make use of the outdoor sports facilities, such as beach volleyball and football golf. With your help, we will continue to extend these sports and outdoor adventure facilities. Let your creativity flow and use your ideas to help us design buildings as well as flooring all around the swimming pool in new colours. Many diverse and interesting tasks are waiting to be taken on by our team. Members and friends of the swimming pool will support your efforts not only with advice and knowledge, but also with the proper tools and equipment.
Local accommodationYou will be staying in mobile homes or in large tents on the grounds of the outdoor pool (in a closed-off area with a camp-fire site). You will prepare and cook meals together in groups.
About the project locationThe outdoor forest pool at Walbeck is perfect for those interested in sports and games.
