About the local hosting organizationIt is the 9th time we organize this workcamp, together with the town hall of Tracy le Mont, at the heart of the Laigue forest. This little charming village, environmentally responsible, wants to keep on the preservation of its environment, its history and emphasize the participation of the youngest members of the community. Your task will be to carry on new animations during the month of August. There are many hiking trails starting from the village and going across the forest. In a nutshell, it's a heritage workcamp for nature lovers!
About the volunteer workThis year we are working in the schoolyard. A stone wall needs to be restored to improve the living environment and mainly to insure children’s safety. You will work on the recovery of joints of the walls and the repointing of the wall. You might also cut some stones in order to change those damaged. You will also contribute to the maintenance of the news boards and the figures of the memory path.
Local accommodationYou will sleep under tents, with boys and girls separated, but for your daily needs you'll use the village community hall with an equipped kitchen (oven, dish-washer, etc...). The showers will be at the football stadium a kilometer away from your living area. The group will be sharing the cleaning chores and preparing meals together.
About the project locationTracy le Mont is located at the heart of the Laigue forest, near Compiègne, Noyon and Pierrefonds and its fortified castle. It's a village of more than a thousand inhabitants, a bit isolated in the forest.
