Across the Petite Camargue (TEEN CAMP)- July 7-25, 2016
The work done by the volunteer group includes the restoration of walls (skinning and jointing the walls of the old scale in Beauvoisin ) and small constructions (barriers of the playground in Franquevaux). A logistical help for the organization of local events, as the cultural festival “Nuits de Franquevaux”, a concert in the arena of Beauvoisin or the summer festival of Franquevaux, is also planned and will allow you to share lots of moments with the locals.
Beauvoisin, a small town between Nimes, Montpellier and the Mediterranean with rich traditions and wine culture has a long history of international projects. The seat of our delegation has been there for over 40 years. In collaboration with the town, the workcamp of this year focusses on restoration work in the city and the nearby hamlet of Franquevaux as well as a support for local festivities in this very animated time of year. The workcamp is therefore part of a dynamic and will to share the life of the town and strengthen the link between the city center and its hamlet.
