Work Camp in Cambodia - International Volunteering
1. What is a Work Camp?
A short-term voluntary project, or Workcamp, is a community work project carried out by a group of 10 or more volunteers during a period of between 2 and 3 weeks. This could be you and your friends or a mixture of people from around the world
It’s a great opportunity to experience, learn, discover and meet– new cultures, people, languages and yourself while investing your time and energy in a project for the benefit of others, and we proudly say, it is a lifelong experience to change ourselves and mutual understanding.
Workcamp provides opportunities to explore the potential of an international group to work together and have fun. The group experience is a commitment to working out decisions and problems together.
The work is important and not just vacation time: all projects answer real local needs, with strong expectations by the sponsors (local communities and councils).
The objective is to collaborate to develop a project of voluntary work based around diverse themes –ecology, art and culture, childhood, heritage, renovation, and peacebuilding – with the common action of the local population and of a group of international volunteers.
During free time volunteers can rest, take part in workshops or discover the host country, depending on the project and on the initiative of the group.
