Summer Workcamps



Internationale Jugendgemeinschaftsdienste (IJGD)

In generell
With our 2007 workcamp program ijgd welcomes you to send volunteers to our international workcamps. We offer a
wide choice of projects in which volunteers can engage themselves in meaningful work, as well as play an active
role in the decision making of day-to-day group life.
Background and Goals
IJGD is a non-profit, non-denominational organization which has been active in international youth work since 1948.
Each year ijgd ganizes about 110 international youth workcamps. In cooperation with partner workcamp
organizations, ijgd also sends volunteers to workcamps in Europe, Africa and North and South America.
Ijgd aims to encourage young people to become aware of existing social and environmental conditions, enabling
them to be active and responsible participants in a democratic society. The experiential learning in a workcamp
leads to an examination of one's own cultural norms and values and consequently helps to break down barriers
between people because of their cultural, social and racial differences. This development of international
understanding is regarded as a contribution to the furtherance of world peace.
IJGD General Camp Conditions
• Generally each workcamp lasts about 3 weeks
• Participants are generally between 16 to 26 years
• Generally volunteers work about 5 hours/day, except Saturday and Sunday (25 to 30 hours a week)
• Most groups consist of about 15 volunteers
• Participants are expected to contribute to the daily life of the group in many ways (cooking, shopping,
organizing free-time activities; the running of the whole event)
• Accommodations are generally simple (youth hostels, schools, forest huts or sometimes tents)
• Groups are usually responsible for cooking their own meals
• Projects may include renovation, environmental work, play schemes with children, work with elderly, etc.
Minors (under 18 years) need a permission of guardians which they n e e d to bring to the camp!
Group Leaders
Group Leaders of IJGD workcamps are usually similar in age to other participants. Workcamps usually have two
leaders, trained through IJGD seminars, who work together as a leader team. Camps are run using the principle of
self-organization. This means that the leaders should not dominate, rather be participants themselves who are also
responsible for contact with the project's supporter, taking care of administrative details and ensuring self-
organization of the group.
After the Workcamps In autumn, after the workcamp season is over, ijgd organizes evaluation meetings with
former participants, with group leaders and staff on a national and international level.
