English for you – but in the camp standardly we only speak german! OK most of us can speak “broken”-english and we all have hands and feet…
If you are not from Germany and are interested in our current camp, we would be happy to hear from you.
Since the idea of our WorkCamp is a “copy” of the work of the ÖJD/EYS – only transformed down to the regional level – we are very connected to the international camp work.
In spring 2021, our camp appeared for the first time on the EYS homepage and was thus noticed by international partners – you probably became aware of us through this contact – great!
Our camps are organized 100% on a voluntary basis – so to speak, nobody gets paid for the camp organization. Everything runs alongside school, studies, or work. Some feel so connected that they even use their annual holiday for the WorkCamp time because they are not students or pupils. That’s why we only organize one WorkCamp per year, which takes place for one week and, of course, the camp language is only German.
We would like to welcome around 5 participants from outside Germany in the future. This would add a splash of color to our group and broaden the view of our german participants.
And a few words about health insurance: Participants living in countries with which Germany has a social security agreement (EU countries, Bosnia, Kosovo, Croatia, Montenegro, Serbia, Switzerland, Turkey, etc.) must bring a certificate of entitlement or a European Health Insurance Card in order to be treated in Germany. Please remember to obtain this European Health Insurance Card from your statutory health insurance. Unfortunately, illnesses that already existed before the start of the trip and chronic illnesses are not covered by the Insurance.
Here you can find more information from the European Commission about the European Health Insurance Card.
