Itaeuros going to be the first international workcamp in Moenchberg and the citizens are already excited to share their local traditions and history with you.
About the volunteer workThe volunteers will work closely together with the local volunteers and community workers who are in charge of the celebrations. You will be involved in the preparatory work that needs to be done: preparing the different areas, building infrastructure like stalls and tents as well as the medieval themed decoration of the town. During the festive days you will be involved in the different tasks to ensure a smooth course of events. After the celebration you will help dismantle everything again.
Local accommodationVolunteers will be accommodated in the local fire department. There is a room for training courses that will serve as your bedroom. Sanitary facilities and a kitchen are also available. Camp beds will be provided. Please bring your own sleeping bag.
About the project location: Moenchberg is located in the Bavarian part of the low mountain range and nature park called Spessart, around 65km south-east of Frankfurt. It is considered a Luftkurort (climatic spa) and a popular touristic place in this region, not least because there are still a lot of medieval buildings and frame houses around as well as the historic city wall. In your free time you can go on trips and maybe take a guided tour at the local brewery, where a special beer for the anniversary is made. You can also relax at the public heated swimming pool with a scenic view.
RequirementsVolunteers will often work in small teams together with locals, so volunteers who want to improve their German speaking skills are especially welcome.
