Campleaders wanted for Czech Republic!
1. Who is the campleader? Campleader – a participant to the camp with volunteers 24 hours a day, which helps to communicate between volunteers and the host, coordinate volunteers and to organize free time, as well as carry out various activities, exercise to unite the team of volunteers and so on.
2. Why do I have to be a campleader? You will know new people and you will get useful experience. You will enjoy the camp together with other international participants and learn from them. You will spend time in multi-cultural atmosphere and increase your skills in English. Campleaders don’t have to pay for the participation.
3. What are the requirements for the campleaders?
There are several points that should correspond to a person, who wants to participate in the camp as a campleader:
• Age at least 18 years.
• Good knowledge of English.
• Willingness to assume some responsibility for resolving the emerging issues in the camps and conflict situations.
• Experience in international camps as a volunteer.
• Any experience of participation in student camps and university events also welcome.
A personal experience from a workcamp:“I found out about SCI from my parents, who both did workcamps in the ’70s. My basic reason for deciding to go was wanting to travel for more than just a holiday, but not having anyone to go with.”"It’s difficult to find a negative feature about the work camp, the only one would be the fact that the international volunteers and the Czech volunteers didn’t integrate very well, although I think that may have been a consequence of how the camp came about and not a very usual experience.”"What I got from the workcamp (the best part of all) was the realisation that I could do this kind of thing, and an interest in travelling and volunteering which has led me to do other camps and to live abroad.”
Karl Downey, from Ireland
